    . I'm more interested in astronomy, the cosmos and relativity stuff. Also in the future of mankind, technologies and our ultimate fate.

    My dads a computer programmer and I just asked him what the first computer we had when I was little and he says it was an IBM XT 808 processor or something.
    I remember playing a game called "moonbuggies" on it

    I am not exactly interested in "science" as much as I am specifically interested in animal behaviour and evolution. Do I absolutely HAVE TO study genetics to get into that stuff?
    That kind of sucks if I do, I find learning about things I'm not interested in absolutely impossible

    --animal behaviour and evolution are most assuredly scientific topics. You don't have to study genetics for you to be considered as a person with scientific interest. Evolution is a great scientific topic(my favourite, in the general scheme of things). I have recently ordered and received The Structure of Evolutionary Theory by S.J. Gould so I think I might find myself reading that soon. Of course I have a mountain of books on the geosciences which I have more interest in, but if you are very interested in the study of evolution (apparently, you are talking biological evolutionary theory) that certainly is a science.

    You'll probably have to take a class on evolution and/or genetics in college if you major in biology, but other than that, no. It will probably just be one of the many, many classes you have to take even though you aren't very interested in the subject.

    yeah well I can't do those classes. I can't physically make myself.
    I guess I'll just have to be a janitor

    You usually do a good bit of biology, and specifically genetics in biology even if you're NOT a bio major. I'm Comp Sci graduting in a year and I've taken plenty of classes that dont pertain to my major. Thats what University is for...to get a variety of different things under your belt. If thats not what you want, go to a tech or trade school. Its no less respectable...just different.
