Why spend so much time picking on the Mormons?

You know what’s really crazy about Mormons? They spend so much time and energy trying to help one another and even non-mormons as well. They learn true morals and values and unlike other Christian religions, they are expected to live these morals and values. They are taught that alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drugs are harmful. Who knew? The Mormon church donates millions of dollars to humanitarian projects and disasters. Practicing Mormons are generally more happy and honest than other people too. How crazy is that? Also, Mormons are taught to pray and ask God himself if the things they teach are true so the individual can know for him or herself. This is why practicing Mormons are so faithful because they gained a testimony from prayer and weren’t just indoctrinated. Wow, they are crazy!!! Also, there is no paid clergy in the Mormon church so the money can be used for better things than making the religion a business venture, unlike other faiths. Mormons take church jobs because they truly believe in what they are doing and not for financial gain…again crazy! You know what’s craziest of all…..this belief will never make it on this website because it’s all true and every anti-mormon knows it!

What is the Mormon Transhumanist Association?

The Mormon Transhumanist Association is an international nonprofit organization that promotes practical faith in human exaltation through charitable use of science and technology, as outlined in the Transhumanist Declaration and the Mormon Transhumanist Affirmation. We support discussion and public awareness of emerging technologies, defend the right of individuals in free and democratic societies to adopt technologies that expand human capacities, and anticipate and propose solutions for the potential consequences of emerging technologies. Although we are neither a religious organization nor affiliated with any religious organization, we support our members in their personal religious affiliations, and encourage them to adapt Transhumanism to their unique situations.

What is the relation between Mormonism and Transhumanism?

Increasingly, persons are recognizing parallels and complements between Mormon and Transhumanist views. On the one hand, Mormonism is a religious ideology of the Judeo-Christian tradition that advocates faith in God leading to salvation. On the other hand, Transhumanism is a mostly secular ideology that advocates ethical use of technology to extend human capabilities. However, Mormonism and Transhumanism advocate remarkably similar views of human nature and its future: material beings organized according to law, rapidly advancing knowledge and power, imminent fundamental changes to anatomy and environment, and eventual transcendence of present limitations. Resources available through this site provide details on the relation between Mormon and Transhumanist views.

Truth over Tradition

The craziest Mormon belief is that in violation of the Book of Mormon which blasts polygamy as abominable even by the “men of old” back in Jerusalem. It doesn’t matter who practices it or when, it has always been an abomination.

And anyone who thinks their “whoremongering” can be justified due to men of old that practiced it, then they misunderstand the scriptures. Polygamy is the craziest belief and the men that went for it were “carnally minded” and the women were suppressed and stupid to believe in this spiritual slavery by lustful men.

God warned Joseph Smith against “his carnal desires” or he would fall and he did! (Jacob 2, 3 & D&C 3:1-11). Luckily, Joseph Smith started to repent as researched by D. Michael Quinn before he was murdered by Willard Richards (had a gun under his heavy coat ~ only one to wear a coat) for top Mason evil money changer Brigham Young.

The Word of God can be edited.

There have been numerous changes to the text of the Book of Mormon with each new release, even though Joseph Smith said:

“… we heard a voice from out of the bright light above us, saying, ‘These plates have been revealed by the power of God, and they have been translated by the power of God. The translation of them which you have seen is correct, and I command you to bear record of what you now see and hear.’” (History of the Church, by Joseph Smith, Vol. 1, pp. 54-55)

Mormons believe a con artist is a prophet who found golden plates in NY

Mormon beliefs were started by Joseph Smith, a convicted con artist, from Palmyra, New York, who allegedly found golden plates, which he translated to become the Book of Mormon.  He claimed in 18 + different accounts 18 different reasons for finding the plates, but the official church reason is that God the father, who has a body of flesh and bones, told  him all churches were an abomination and he must restore the true gospel.  A few years later, before completing the translation, but after this alleged first vision, Joseph Smith joined one of these abominable churches.  Why would he do that?

When someone stole his first translation, he was unable to retranslate it again, and instead provided a “different version” because “God told him to” after a 6 month + hiatus from translating.  Nobody has ever “seen the plates” except with their “spiritual eyes.”  Also a single artifact or scientific evidence verifying the Book of Mormon has never been found.

Joseph Smith also started his own army and declared himself king of the world.  Narcissim much?
