I've begun posting on this board without any introductions. Seems like I had appeared out of
nowhere to express my views and yet, no one
knows who I am.
I will not give out my real name, although if I get to know some of you well enough, I might just do that in isolated cases.
Now without further ado, an introduction so I can get to know you:
I was born and raised a mormon, but for many years, felt an emptiness in my soul unrequieted by the propaganda enforced by the heads of the church. I
was well aware of the past the mormon church hides, as I did research upon research into the religion my parents so forcibly tried to make me accept
and believe in.
It is amazing the efforts the mormon church goes into decieving its' members and the thorough job of brainwashing they embellish in. However, the
teachings condition mormons at such a young age that truth from fiction is often blurred.
Currently, even though the records still show my name as being a mormon, I am non-practicing. I am in search of truth, of a sense of belonging, of a
separation from the lies I was brought up with.
Granted, mormons have great moral upbringings, but the deeper eschelons of mormon faith are shady at best. Trust me, I would know. Most of the things
I know about the mormon church continue to go unknown by the rest of the mormon population.
I have been in the US Air Force for nearly two years. I am just now being able to leave the middle east after a 7 month deployment in support of
Operation Iraqi Freedom.
My interests lie in the unexplained, the paranormal, in extra-terrestrial existence, and in my own spiritual growth. In essence, I am an X-philer or
I know that the truth is out there and that there is an effort to distort the truth.
If I remain in the military long enough, I hope I can uncover a few "truths" for myself. But we'll see.
This is my introduction and I hope to continue to get to know many of you on this site.....Lets bridge the gap and allow ourselves to maybe become
