I've seen a lot of threads of one side challenging the other when it comes to religious beliefs, mostly concerning whether or not a creator exists,
but also some other topics. I grew up mormon, decided to live my own way a while, identifying as atheist, and now have seen my old religion in a
You can ask me anything and I'll give the most honest answer I can - I do not seek to have any others see things my way, but rather understand it.
Many of these views are at least in part held by Mormons, other things I say may not be as well defined within the sect itself.
First, the big one, God - I do not believe God to be some mystical, magical, corporeal ghost that snaps a finger and does whatever he wants, I believe
God to be a form of evolution, a form of maturity, intellect, and understanding obtained over an unknown period of time, and that God was once a human
himself, and still exists with rules and expectations - from where? Most religions don't dive that deep. Perhaps the universe.
Secondly, I do believe in evolution. I may not believe that everything we are, that our entire essence is the result of simply sharing an ancestor
with primates, but I do believe that we have not always looked exactly as we do now, I do believe there's been changes over the years, and that
species can change into others. I simply believe God to be an advanced enough being to put everything in motion - a master chemist, alchemist,
scientist of sorts.
Anyways those are two of the bigger topics, you can ask whatever you'd like, though.
