Cats Dump Christianity

Posted by skiutah on Thursday, July 5, 2012

Toxoplasma Gondii is a parasite that infects humans. Toxoplasmosis is passed to people from contaminated cat feces. Humans typically catch toxoplasmosis when cleaning cat litter. Feline loving countries in Europe, North American, and South American have high infestation rates (as high as 80% of the population).

The Toxoplasma parasite embeds in the orbital frontal cortex of the human brain and alters the personality and psychological behavior of the host that it infects. People infected with this parasite tend to:

* Be more prone to guilt, self-doubt, and insecurity
* Have increased suicide rates
* Be less inhibited, more compulsive, and have reckless behaviors
* Have stronger sexual drives
* Have higher rates of schizophrenia and bi-polarism

People with the prior listed qualities tend to:

* Believe that an external influence like the devil tempts them to behave badly
* Believe that they are inherently sinful, have no control over bad behavior, and therefore unworthy of God, and hence develop a desire to be saved by an external entity such as Jesus

In this way, cats and the Toxoplasma parasite have been the driving force behind the spread of Christianity. Cultures (like Europe, North American, and South America) that overwhelmingly accept cats as house pets also tend to be highly Christian. Whereas in Asian countries, where pet cats are not welcome, people tend be Hindu, Muslim, or Buddhist. In non-cat lover countries, humans have low infestation rates (5% in South Korea) of this parasite and don’t agree with many of the beliefs of Christian religions (all humans are imperfect, influenced by the devil, sin, and therefore need to be saved by Jesus).

Romance Novels Inspire Better Sex for LDS

Posted by skiutah on Friday, August 19, 2011

Here’s an interesting article in the Salt Lake Tribune describing how romance novels help LDS women have better sex: Mormon Women Less Frigid in Bed After Reading Romance Novels

If only Emma Smith had read a few bodice rippers, the whole polygamy issue would have never gotten off the ground.

In reality, the romance novel genre is widely misunderstood. Here are the top five romance novel myths:

Myth #1: Romance novels are a form of literary pornography.
Wrong. Yes, there often is sex in romance novels, but it includes character arcs, realistic emotions, feeling good about a monogamous sexual relationship, bonding, cherishing each other, and growing in character. Furthermore, some romance novel sub-categories do not include any sex. Some romance novel categories emphasize abstinence and sex only after marriage. Romance novels are far cry from the junk soft-porn fiction stereotype.

Myth #2: Romance novels are for uneducated, sit home Moms, who are sexually repressed (either redneck or Mormon), and watch Oprah.
Is it just criminals who read crime novels? Or people with special powers who read super hero comic books? Or astro physicists who read science fiction. Nope. Readers of romance novels come from a vast spectrum of social, educational, and economic backgrounds.

Myth #3: Anybody can write a romance novel.
According to one editor I talked to, getting published in romance is one of the hardest categories to break into. If anybody can write romance, why doesn’t everybody do it? Try it if you think it’s easy.

Myth #4: Romance novels give women unrealistic expectations about life.
Romance novels center on character arcs and overcoming fears, and resolving problems. Modern romance novels are nothing like the bodice ripper stereotypes that many people think of. Women are strong, independent, and thinkers in modern romance novels. There’s nothing unrealistic about that.

Myth #5: Romance novels are full of cookie cutter, stereotypical characters, and simple prose.
Nope. Romance novels are full of unique, sophisticated, and inspirational characters. Romance novels are character driven; the characters have to be strong and resourceful. The language to describe these characters has to be creative and oftentimes complex. Go read reviews on Amazon of recently written romance novels. These reviews reveal the depth and breadth of this literature genre.

If I get prostrate cancer should I be able to sue the LDS church?

Posted by coventryrm on Thursday, May 19, 2011

Recent studies have clearly shown that men who drink coffee have much lower incident of prostrate cancer, being raised Mormon I didn’t start drinking coffee until I left the faith at age 35.   It is also known that having  a regular ejaculation is also beneficial in the reduction of prostrate cancer risk.   As a Mormon premarital sex and maturbation is strictly prohibited… double whammy for those faithfull LDS men following the doctrines of thier church.  No wonder Utah has a much higher rate of prostate cancer.
