Mormans - Bzzzt, Sorry But You're Wrong

The 175 year old Morman teaching that Native American Indians were descended from Middle Eastern Hebrews has been shown to be wrong.

I never knew how inherently racist the Morman creed is. Check this out, from the article:
The God-fearing Nephites were 'pure' (the word was officially changed from 'white' in 1981) and 'delightsome.' The idol-worshiping Lamanites received the 'curse of blackness,' turning their skin dark...(I)f the Lamanites returned to the church, their skin could once again become white.
(Emphasis mine)

Apparently being a "Lamanite" and being able to be saved or whatever is a "big sell" used by Morman missionaries to convert brown people to their weird-ass faith. Now that scientific evidence has shown key elements to be wrong, we have the classic faith rational of, "It's not that Mormons are not curious...(T)hey just don't see the need to reconsider what has already been decided."

Sorry, "decided"? That's like "deciding" that my new internet friend is a woman and, even after discovering through photographic evidence and police reports that my "friend" is a male stalker, deciding to keep treating "her" as a woman. You can't just "decide" to believe something that is absolutely proven to be different from your silly-ass thoughts. Do you hear me, ID people? Fundamentalists? Please take note.

In case you missed the South Park episode, Mormans believe, in part, that an angel named Moroni led Joseph Smith in 1827 to a divine set of golden plates buried in a hillside near his New York home. That's right. And the plates were written in "reformed Egyptian" and came complete with special glasses and a "seer stone" so Smith could read the plates. Sort of like 3-D glasses, only he was the only one who could use them.

Once again, the mental disorder of faith is rearing its head. This case also shows how most religions will look at another faith and dismiss it as strange and wrong, but fail to see the similarities in their own systems and books. We seriously have to get over this faith thing....
