Mormens: They believe that Jesus came to America after his resurection but before he ascended. They believe that angles gave them two gold tablets with the new teaching of Jesus on them. They also believe that afte death they go to anthor planet.
That is my extant of knowledge on doma, hope you liked it.
I didn't know all of that about the Mormons. I knew they are a VERY closed type of group. Like for example I was watching a show on the TV a while back about a girl was marrying a Mormon man, and they had to get married in the secret room/altar that no one who wasn't Mormon could go into, so her family couldn't be there for their daughters wedding. There was also a bunch of crazy stuff she had to do before he could marry her, it was all VERY strange.
Also, isn't it the Mormons that had a leader....John Smith right??, that received the 2 golden tablets in the woods, but they broke, or got lost or something, so only he saw them, and then he said the angels told him he could not remake the tablets, that everybody just had to have faith in what he said he had learned from them, since there could be no more tablets. That should have raised up some enormous red flags right there IMO. To each their own
The only religion I could speak of would be Paganism, but I am far from an expert on it, plus it is such a hugely diversified group that it would be hard to write something that would fit all Pagans. I guess I can try to make some generalities, but forgive me if it's not very concise.
The word "Paganism" is derived from a Latin word "paganus", and it means "Country dweller, or rustic".
In a more current and esoteric way it means a religion outside of the main "Abrahamic" religions (Christianity, Judaism, Muslim). Usually Pagans worship or recognize the female nature of the divine and nature, some to the exclusion of the male. Most pagans are Polytheistic, but there are many that fall into other categories such as, but not limited to, Pantheism and/or Agnosticism. Most Pagans are very nature orientated, believing in conservation and respect of all living things. Of all the Paganistic sub-groups (Shamanism, Animistic, Spiritualistic, etc) one of the most well recognized in America is Wicca. Wicca is a nature-based mystery religion. There are various paths one can take within the fold of Wicca also, and there are others that could explain much better than I. Here is a link about Wicca and Paganism:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paganismhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicca
Paganism is often wrongly accused of being Satanic, which is untrue as Pagans do not even believe in the Christian "Satan". In fact most Pagans preach a life of peace and goodwill to others. They believe that whatever you do to harm someone will be returned to you, some believe three-fold. Most Pagans do believe in Magic and/or Spellwork. To these people magic is broadly defined (IMO) as simply using and directing energy by force of your will to affect the changes you wish to see or accomplish. Most all believe that if you use negative energy, or if you cast a spell that interferes with another's will, those same energies will come back to the sender, making his/her life even more negative than it originally was.
Some, though not all, believe in reincarnation after death, also that we chose our life here to learn and grow from.
I know I could have done a MUCH better job at describing Paganism, but this is all I can come up with at the moment.I hope it will suffice. If anyone else has more to add, or to correct me, please do so!!
I have been a practicing Pagan for almost 10 years,and I am always open to more information. Paganism is such a diverse religion, with so much left up to personal interpretation, that it is hard for me to really do all the paths enough justice. Perhaps someone out there will add to it.
