Such a cop-out. Especially for an organization that claims to have all the answers and boasts having more truth than everyone else.
Does that bother anyone else? Like, it just occurred to me that having to accept "we don't know; we'll learn about that in the next phase of existence" is kind of antithetical to learning any truth about why we're here in the first place.
According to Mormonism, we're here to be tested on our willpower to control these bodies, right? So that in the next phase, we'll be able to handle the power of Gods or whatever. The veil and our forgetting the premortal existence was so that we could choose the correct path without prior knowledge of which path was the right one. I'm having trouble breaking it down, why the parts of this don't fit together. Because it doesn't make sense. How does choosing something based on no knowledge of it make that choice better/more pure than the informed choice?
Assuming God is real and the plan is exactly as Mormons laid it out: What is a blind test supposed to do for us? How does following based on limited information make you better suited for power and elevation in the next life?
