Religion - Religions - Mormonism


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 genealogy. What a marvellously useful religious belief, that one should try to account for the whole world.

Mormon beliefs

Crazy stuff Mormons believe.

The Skeptic's Annotated Book of Mormon

The Origin of the Book of Mormon

South Park episode All About Mormons (2003) destroys the foundations of the Mormon religion with good humour.

The uneducated Joseph Smith reads from his imaginary "Golden Plates".

Extracts from the script.

"True Origins of the Qur'an" by SyeTenAtheist does a similar job on the Quran.
The illiterate Muhammad gets scribes to write down the "revelations" he receives from an imaginary being called "Allah".

Joseph Smith received "Golden Plates" from an angel in 1827.
No sceptic or rational person ever saw them. No photo was taken. Smith never bothered to bring them near, say, a university.
Instead he showed them to a bunch of credulous friends 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, were lost. Atheists like me were left to carry on believing there is no God, because Smith got rid of the evidence.

Banned in Iran: This site is banned in Iran.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
