Mormonism, for the same reason I dislike other pseudo-Christian sects, like Charismatism.  It purports to be Christianity and confuses people.  Islam, while vile in many ways and more dangerous in a temporal, physical sense, is not as seductive to those who still think they believe in Christ when they embrace the Mormon "Christ", or the Holy Spirit when they embrace the Marquis of Snakes or whichever other foul entity from the pit is causing them to writhe on the floor and jabber in pseudo-tongues.
Well, Muslims do love to seduce Christians with the whole Isa/Maryam thing. Most Muslims I met were former Christians who didn't seem to think much changed beside this whole mushrik Trinity thing.

Western young people are converting to Islam for cultural reasons, not because they're following Christ into new fields of doctrine or something like that.

Yeah, I took one years ago. For me, it was an easy course that filled a math requirement. In terms of actual usefulness, it could be I got some benefit from filling all those truth trees but it would be subconscious.

"Truth trees." ::)

It does look like interesting stuff. Might make more sense in the context of the history of computer science.

And for analytic "philosophy."

t;ftfy

What do you constitute philosophy as?

Certainly not something that was showily developed, mostly by mathematicians, for the purpose of destroying philosophy.

On the contrary, Analytic Philosophy and Mathematics only build each other up, and have become inseparable in certain areas. Ever hear of Set Theory? Truth is, Philosophy is a diverse subject unlike any other, and seeps itself into every other subject matter. That's why Philosophy has areas like Aesthetics but also the Philosophy of Science.

You're missing the point.

I'm so stoked about this movie. It looks fantastic.

Did you know that Mor has nothing to do with this film (but secretly does, because I want him jealous)?

I'd let her kill me.

I no longer frame the question in metaphysical terms but still this culture of staying in the closet produces on occasion tragi-comic results.

Staying in the closet might be extremely distressing and even lead to suicide. Nothing comical in that.

Do you allow yourself to be carried along by every wind of pop psychology? However, even granting this meme some kind of reality, the "in the closet" in question is one of teenage confusion and fear. By contrast, raising a family, or living as apparent roommates, for the purpose of contributing to or at least not damaging society and its goals of child-rearing and healthful padeia, is the old-fashioned wau of being "in the closet," tested for centuries or millennia in many cultures around the world.

So beards are good.
