Revealed: 40 Secret Mormon Beliefs & Practices

Once upon a time, long before the Scientologists came to the religious table, we had the Mormons. Like any good religion, their beliefs, viewed from the outside, seem rather silly.

The Book of Mormon, the religious text of the Mormons, was a gift to the world in 1829. It was the work of Joseph Smith, who completed the book with the help of his friend Martin Harris. Smith claimed that he translated a set of gold plates gifted to him by an angel. From those plates, he had what he needed to create the Church of Latter Day Saints, otherwise known in shorthand as the Church of LDS.

Adding to the peculiarity of the Mormon religion, most aspects of their belief system are not common knowledge. What we do know, falls under serious scrutinies, such as these 25 aspects…

The Earth Is 7,000 Years Old

Since none of us were around billions of years ago when science claims the Earth first formed, who among us can disprove the Mormon belief that Earth started around 7,000 years ago? Not only was it started around 4000 BCE, unlike the belief by Abrahamic religions that God created the Earth, Mormons believe that his Earthly son, Jesus, crafted our planet. God only gave him the supplies.

Special Mormon Underwear Has Magic Powers

Ask anyone who’s leafed through a copy of Victoria’s Secret, underwear can be powerful. To Mormons, underwear is also powerful, but in a different way. Special undergarments worn by Mormons give them powers against sinning. (It’s more like Victoria’s Confession.) The undies worn by Mormons are a symbolic reminder to stay chaste, to keep their agreement with God. Depending on an individual’s level of commitment, they may not remove their scared panties except when showering or during marital sex.
