Their beliefs may be as strange as any others, but I could forgive the Mormons a lot
because of all the work they do on the world's
What a marvellously useful religious belief, that one should try to account for the whole world.
"True Origins of the Qur'an"
does a similar job on the Quran.
to write down the "revelations"
he receives from an imaginary being called "Allah".
Joseph Smith received
from an angel in 1827.
No sceptic or rational person ever saw them.
Smith never bothered to bring them near, say, a university.
Instead he showed them to a bunch of
and told them to "spread the word" about what they had seen.
Yeah, that will work!
What kind of moronic strategy is that?

Right, there's a bunch of men claimed they saw these things.
So obviously ... we don't need them any more!
Of course not!
Smith "returned" the plates to the angel in 1829.
These plates, which could have proved for the first time in human history the existence of God,
Atheists like me were left to carry on believing there is no God,
because Smith got rid of the evidence.

Who I block on Twitter:
I will debate almost anyone.
I love ideas.
I will not debate (and will block) people who:
(a) target my job,
(b) target my appearance, or:
(c) libel me.
Also, since 2016, abusive reporting has become a thing.
I was targeted with abusive reporting by
an Israel-hater pretending to be "Jewish".
So I now also block:
(d) any account that even hints that it reports its enemies,
(e) any Israel-hater that claims to be Jewish.
It is just self-defence.
