I’ve waited a long time for DarkMatter’s latest. Here it is:
“Will that un-rape the woman??”
DarkMatter brings up the fantastic point that I’d honestly never considered. If God has a plan, then that automatically means we have no free will because anything we choose is already part of the plan. And of course free will is horseshit in a universe controlled by an omniscient god.
What’s really funny is the ad that popped up right before the video was this:
Cute, little Daisy Chou. I followed her link to Mormon.org. Found this:
Why I am a Mormon
I prayed for God to help me understand if the gospel, the fully restored gospel of Jesus Christ, was true. Once I knew it was true, I didn’t have much choice but to accept it and though it was a huge and often difficult change then… now, I have been forever blessed for my faithfulness and my testimony has only grown since then.
In looking for the original YouTube link, I decided to leave the following comment:
What convinced Daisy that LDS was true?
[quoted as above]
That’s right. She decided it was. No evidence. None at all. Thank Joseph Smith she’s not a criminal judge.
Since comments require uploader approval, and since the uploader is Mormon, I doubt my comment will reach the video’s page.
Since Daisy called herself a dedicated blogger, I decided to Google her. Here she is:
And this is what she says about herself:
I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in June 2009. I grew up without a religion in my family, went to CMC for my bachelors, found the Church through co-workers and the internet and am currently at home with my son and working part-time (from home) as the Operations and Finance Director for an executive search firm. I am a wife, a new mom!, a daughter, a sister, an awesome aunt, a friend, a blogger, a wanna be fitness guru, a wanna be cook, a little A.D.D., a little type A and I am Mormon.
Ha! She went to the Claremont Colleges like I did.
Here’s what her husband has to say about himself:
I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I served a two year mission in Hong Kong, graduated from BYU and am currently working on my MD. I am a husband, a new dad!, a son, a brother, an awesome uncle, a friend, a golfer, a sports enthusiast, a Cougar fan, a furniture builder in the making, a competitive board game player, and I am Mormon.
Bingo! Daisy had no religion growing up, but hottie Mormon Boy comes along and suddenly, she’s in the church! Woo too for (presumed) social pressure!
Wanting to know more, I’ve left the following comment on the blog’s current post:
I saw your Mormon ad on YouTube. I find the fact that you converted fascinating. I find your reason, “Once I knew [the Book of Mormon] was true,” even more fascinating. Especially since it’s more a declaration than a reason. What was it that convinced you that LDS is true?
I left my name and this site as my ID. We’ll see if she responds.
