last one I swear

The Geek/Nerd/Dork test.

I still scored higher than 99% on all three. Wow.



Your Score: Outcast Genius


78 % Nerd, 86% Geek, 56% Dork




For The Record:



A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.



You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.



Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).



Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.



Congratulations!

My Pownce invites

My Pownce invites. Let me share you them.

Requirements: You have to have an established blog on the Atheist Blogroll or Planet Atheism.

Just post a comment with a link to your blog.

A link back would be appreciated, but certainly not required. I'm not selfish like that.

The reason I'm only opening it up to those groups is so that maybe, while testing out this handy piece of technology that may or may not suck ass, we can be productive and share things relevant to us. But we may just be wasting our time.

The sheer lunacy of Mormonism

I don't mean to attack a specific religion. I promise, that was never my intention when starting this blog. I decided that, besides my own experiences, I would stay fair.

But last night, I changed my mind.

I had previously thought that Mormonism was odd, how Joseph Smith translated some plates he found with a magic decoder ring he put in his hat, but I found Mormonism to be mostly harmless, and thought that it taught it's followers basically the same as Christianity only with more restrictions and some nuanced differences. Boy was I ever wrong!

Mormons believe that there are trillions of planets and trillions of gods. Some planets are human planets, some planets are god planets. Earth is a human planet, but if we are good Mormons and die we become gods ourselves and can have dominion over a planet.

The Earth god is Elohim, whose sons (Lucifer and Jesus) kinda battle for domination of the planet. Lucifer's followers became demons, Jesus' followers became happy white Mormons, and the people who chose to stay neutral became black people.

A few other tidbits:
Mormons inhabit the moon, as well as the earth.
Elohim lives on Kolob. They've found it with the Hubble too, wouldn't you know?
We're all aliens since we started life on Kolob
They have doctrine on how to handle how to worship when traveling through space to another planet, governed by a different god.

I could go on for a while.

Recently Al Sharpton was criticized for having made an insensitive comment suggesting that Mormons don't really believe in the real God. He fumbled, trying to save face, and failed. According to Christian doctrine shouldn't he have just owned up to it? I don't think many would disagree with him if they knew what Mormons believed.

I've said before that all religion is equally as quirky and nonsensical except for Scientology, but I think I'll now add Mormonism to that as well.

You can say I'm insensitive, and you'd have a point, but there are millions of people who believe this, and that's just unacceptable!

Seriously. WTF?
