Zod

Fundamental Question: How do people buy in to Mormonism...

40 posts in this topic

If you ever want a Mormon to bugger off, ask them what kind of god they're going to be.

Truth.

By realizing that believing in magical beings who give you stuff if you live a good life and follow the rules is silly wishful thinking?

Really good book. Thorough research.

But when you start going over in your head how crazy their beliefs are you start thinking about the early beginnings of Christianity and how many people thought the same things about Christians. Is mis-placed Faith worse than no Faith at all?

Seriously? I think that would be a huge headache.

Now, one that allows 3 or 4 mistresses, well...

Yes... one is bad enough, but 3 or 4 to nag you? The mistresses thing would work though... sounds like we need to start our own religion, I mean how hard could it be?

See...

I'm thinking that 4 might just be the critical mass needed to ensure one of your wives was always "in the mood". Top it off with a little careful selection and you might just end up with a permanent 3 or even 4 some.

Now combine that with the very patriarchal family structure of Mormon households and looks like a recipe for bliss.

4 women living together will quickly synchronize their cycles.

You might have to take a week off every month...

I'm pretty sure that if you're sealed(married) in the mormon church that the belief is that you must say a secret word to release your wife's spirit into the afterlife, otherwise her spirit languishes here on Earth. So, that's something pretty big to hang over her head to pressure her, or any number of wives into doing whatever you want.

Damn, that sounds like a pretty good deal there...

So splain to me how this particular thread elevated our overall consciousness to grow in our faith or the pursuit of faith?

Are you a mormon?

This is Zod's opening salvo against Romney in 2012.

Zod is a gopher, and in order to defeat a gopher, I have to think like one, act like one, and whenever possible, look like one.

And that's all she wrote.

    • You are responsible for you. If you let anyone outside of you determine and control your actions and responses then we have bigger fish to fry. How we respond to crap and adversity is what makes or breaks you.  
    • Mike Pence used AOL.  A O f'ing L.  Get off the Hillary emails bro.  Bigger, more orange fish to fry.  
    • For everyone thinking trade down, what does Gettleman like to say:  "I'd rather have a quarter than two dimes." The ONLY reason I think that Gettleman would be open to trading down is if he thinks he can get a better value according to him.  Like (continuing his coin based values), if he has the first 10 picks at half dollars, and then the top 50 players as quarters, if he could turing $.50 into $.75 or more than $1.00...he's be foolish in his own right. It just depends on how he values guys.  Either way, I'm thrilled about this draft!
