Mormonism...... The religion that believes in UFOs and extraterrestrials. Surprised? Well you should be as even most Mormons deny this. Similar to most other theists, Mormons know nothing about their religion. I sometimes wonder if the reason atheists exist, is to inform theists about their religions.
So if any Mormon you know is in doubt about aliens, send them to the following file. Here, they can see what their
"As far back as 1837, I know that he said the moon was inhabited by men and women the same as this earth , and that they lived to a greater age than we do that they live generally to near the age of a 1000 years."
Of course O.B.Hungtinton is discredited by the Mormon faith even though he was published by them in their Young Womens Journal. I suppose its easier to discredit when everyone knows your beliefs are dumb and you get called out on them. However, even if we discredit O.B. you still find he is not the only Mormon boss to believe in aliens. Or as Joseph Fielding Smith said:
"We are not the only people that the Lord has created. We have brothers and sisters on other earths. They look like us because they, too, are the children of God and were created in his image, for they are also his offspring."
I am sure this is why religion can be so entertaining for comedians, as every time I read this stuff it makes me laugh . Yet our Mormon friends still do not believe.
Yet another fine example of cognitive dissonance or pure ignorance.
