Per 60 minutes last night.

Which is greater?
A) the number of grains of sand on the entire earth
or
B) the number of stars and planets observed thus far by Hubble telescope?

Or not.

That lots of planets exist is a fact.
That I'll ever get one to rule...fantasy :)

I don't want a different planet. I love this one. It is my favorite.

Count me out on getting a planet. Sounds like way too much work what with all the listening to prayers, finding car keys, and picking the winners of all the football games. And don't even get me started on how awful it must be to be omniscient. Yuck.

Why? Now that I’m not Mormon anymore, I don’t need a place to put all of my wives and spirit babies.

I only wanted to have my family. Those primary lessons about not being with our families did a job on me. That was my MAIN focus for being TBM.

I guess "B".

Anyway, I don't want my own plant...tired of mowing lawns. To much maintenance and upkeep on my own planet.

Hey guys, if you’re God, you’re magic. All your complaints go away if you’re God.


The correct answer is B.

I want my own planet. No bad people are allowed there. I'll park wherever I want to park. There will be loads of pets that don't ever poop, so they are easy maintenance. Everyone on the planet has good food and water. No crime.If I have the power to create a wonderful utopia, bring it on.

Sounds good but apparently, like they say in the temple, part of the package includes the caveat that every planet gets an adversary. As Lucifer explained to Elohim, " . . . just doing what we have done in other worlds . . . "

Lucifer has been assured job security.

I just realized that for each planet having a god there is also a Lucifer!

I never wanted my own planet. Can you imagine dealing simultaneously with billions of people? Just thinking of such a thing is mind-boggling, even frightening.

Well, it's my planet, and as the boss, there will be no Lucifer! Lol. Every bit of it, including Stan, is purely made up anyway!

The human microbiome, with its 37.2 trillion human cells and 100 trillion bacterial cells, IS your "planet." As Above, So Below...

But I don't want my own planet. Just my own home (already have that.)

I'm good. :)

I don't want a planet, I'd be happy with a model railroad.

HO scale, Southern Pacific, 1940's-'50's-era.

You guys here are all short-sighted. According to mormon beliefs, when you are exalted, you become fully equal to God the father, just as a human boy grows up on earth, to become a man who is equal in every way to the man that his earthly father became a generation earlier. When they quote mormon scriptures that say "worlds without number have I created", that's supposed to be God talking about his eternal estate.

So, with mormon exaltation, you will do the same thing (if not for the fact that the whole thing is actually a fraud). After a few trillion years, I imagine that the number of worlds you have created with billions of people on each one, tends to get pretty big. By then, you've got several gods under you, and your multi-level salvation becomes so big that you have to be a God, just to keep track of it all. So you don't just get your own planet, you get your own universe, eventually with billions of gods under you, and a seemingly endless number of planets under them, each planet having billions of people on it, not to mention all of the new worlds that you keep creating yourself, each with billions of people on it, and the people there that grow up to become gods themselves, who create even more planets. All of this talk of getting your own planet is a trivial point in comparison. Why choose to own only one grain of sand when you can own the whole beach for as far as you can see?

I'd like two planets. A summer one and a winter one.
