    Objectivism Is The Everyman's Philosophy

    In the universe, what you see is what you get,

    figuring it out for yourself is the way to happiness,

    and each person's independence is respected by all

  • Rand's Philosophy in Her Own Words

    • "Politics: Capitalism" "Give me liberty or give me death." "If life on earth is [a man's] purpose, he has a right to live as a rational being"

    Are Mormons Polytheists?

    MisterSwig
    By MisterSwig,
    In researching Mormons I've learned that they don't believe in the Trinity. Rather, they believe that there are separate personages in Heaven, namely Heavenly Father, Heavenly Mother, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. According to Mormons, there are other entities in Heaven, but those four get the most attention. My question then: Does this make Mormonism a polytheistic religion?

    Its good to be here. Though I haven't had much chance to look around, there seems to be quite a good amount of activity here... often a good sign. Anyhow, I am an actor and part-time writer (more on than off) living in the Twin Cities. I'm 31, and before I make this seem like some dating profile, know that I already found my Dagny (in intellect, accomplishment and purpose... Oh, and a knockout besides ), lol... well I'll be posting. Ciao RE$

    By DavidV,
    I’ve created a forum for basic questions about philosophy/Objectivism. Moderators, please move topics to and from there as you deem necessary. Also, edit the thread titles if they are not clear. All questions there should be in the form of a question and be common questions about Objectivism –on a topic that is included in OPAR, for example. If you are not sure where something belongs, leave a link to the old location when you move a thread.

    By MasterScowler,
    I am the Master Scowler, for even unbidden I scowl dismayingly -and indeed, when focused, with baneful disapprobation! I do not broadly advertise my real name over the internet, no offense. The nick originated with my wife, in a way. She was upset with me one day for being unfriendly at a family function, proclaiming, "You're always scowling at somebody." To which I replied: "I don't scowl all the time... I've been known to smirk on occasion." She was unamused, I find no end to it. Heh heh.
