Ask a Former Mormon
This is fascinating. I'm happy for you and your family that you broke away from the madness. As a MH professional, I also hope that you've found a good combo of coping for the Bipolar. Certainly nothing to be ashamed of. Glad you're here!

Thank you. The wonders of modern medicine, really.

There would be no conquering required. You would be the God of your own realm. You would own and be master of everything. All the planets would be yours because you would have created them. Big Grin
So how do we know whether or not we are living under a dead person, or the real god? Consider

To Mormons it is one and the same. This God, our (humanity's) God, the God of the universe we now live in, used to be mortal just like us. Through his faith and his righteousness he died, was resurrected, and attained the highest level of heaven, and therefore became a God himself with his own universe, our universe. And one day, if we're faithful, the exact same can happen to us. But nowhere in Mormon doctrine does it say anything specific about the women, just that they will be married to these men who become gods. Mormons believe in a Heavenly Mother, but other than that, no information has been shared. It is strictly forbidden to even bring it up. People have been excommunicated for speculating on Heavenly Mother in writing. Censored . The explanation I always heard was that God has so much respect and love for his wife that he doesn't want people to know much about her to protect her from all the profanities and "taking the name of [her] in vain" that is so rife with humans. We know absolutely nothing out of respect. It's absurd.

How does it feel to know that your leader didn't win the election?

So when another person becomes God, is there a power switch? Where does this person assume the deity status? Why haven't we discovered any planets full of Mormons?

Because they're like, far out, man. Waaaay out there.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Nobody knows exactly how it happens or where. After Christ returns, there will be 1000 years of peace. After that is when deification happens, but obviously that's rather ambiguous. As far as not discovering any planets full of Mormons, this universe is God's universe. Mormons believe that when they are elevated to that status, they will be Gods over their own universes. I probably wasn't very clear on that.

Ah, so on what basis does a person conclude that modern DNA testing cannot conclude the genetic history of a race of people, but the multiverse hypothesis deserves credit? Are Mormons even aware of the current theoretical science behind the multiverse?
