Exit Strategy

I recently stopped attending the Mormon church.  My intention is to break all ties with it.  Yet all my family are members and I don't want to ruin my relationship with them.  They've been loving, supportive and encouraging my entire life, but if they know I've left the church that may not continue.   Seems simple enough to just fade away into "inactivity."  I would like to do that, but my circumstances won't allow that.  I'm currently disfellowshipped and have been meeting with my bishop on…

Neural Soul



NEURAL SOUL



The Brain, with all its networks,

and routes and compounds,

can contemplate the vastness of the cosmos,

and often overlooks its own condition.



This object, so small,

So odd,

a natural marvel of bioengineering.



Glia,

scrub and isolate, Like glue between the wires.

Tweaking and cleaning the tangle.



Neurons,

Billions gripping,

like little hands in a circle…

Totalitarianism and Mormonism

I have noticed a lot of similarities between the goals of totalitarian regimes of the past several decades and The Millennium as described by Mormons. This thought has been bouncing around in my head for a few years now; I was even chided for bringing it up by a devout, yet short tempered Mormon. Here is a list of similarities I have found, please feel free to correct or add.

  • A thousand year empire  
  • Over the entire earth
  • Ruled by one…

Why I stopped beliving in Mormon God

I found my father's journal yesterday. The year of 1994 was my third year in the church. I was a convert in a post atheist country, and I was only starting my journey into exploring the faith.

 

While reading my dad's journal I felt as if I had dived into water of memories, and after I had come back to the surface of the present, I couldn't understand where I was. It brought so many contemplations. Yes, once I truely believed in the mormon god as the only truth in the world.…

Two Plans and some ass-kissing

So awhile ago I made a post where I examined some ways I used to think as a Mormon and asked the community to respond with their own thoughts. Recently the user Lapsed (thanks for bringing this up btw) made a point about how choosing Satan's plan in the premortal existence sounds better than Jesus'. This made me think about why Elohim chose Jesus over Satan. Satan's plan sounds better. EVERYONE gets to come home and be with Elohim, families can be together forever and all that warm fuzz.…
