Mormonism, along with every other non-biblical worldview is ultimately inconsistent and borrows from Christianity to stand against it. Here I will address some issues the Mormon worldview contains.
This worldview basically confirms that all people will eventually become a god and even God the Father and Christ processed into gods and are separate deities. Ultimately it can’t provide a justification for uniformity of nature, morality, logic, or anything at all which goes with all non-Christian worldviews in general.
A major problem with the idea of becoming a god after living a life as a human is our lack of knowledge. A god who is an exalted human cannot even make sense of his own identity. To know what a god is and isn’t, you would have to know all time and all history (and all independent existence) to be able to declare what exactly is a god ontologically. Since the gods progressed, and one day learned that he became a god, he could not know all things in the past with the same understanding of the present. For the Mormon gods are gods in the present, but were not gods in all the past before he was transformed into one. They would just understand things better than somebody who isn’t a god.
If Mormonism was hypothetically true there are actually words that could never exists in any language such as “argue, debate, conflict, disputation, ” etc because they presuppose separation and disorder. The fact we have war and arguments in the modern world destroys this idea of many gods.
Here are some examples. Perhaps you and I are both gods right now. We couldn’t have an absolute (unchanging) standard of goodness because you personally may want to bring death to somebody, or even everyone. I disagreed and wanted to preserve the life of others. We couldn’t solve the problem.
The uniformity of nature which is necessary for science is also an impossibility. Lets say I want to destroy gravity, and raise the temperature universally (everywhere) because I feel like it. You disagree with me. Once again we have another conflict that can’t be resolved.
Logic is another problem. We couldn’t have absolute laws of logic (A or -A and A is A) because once again I could decide contradictions are allowed or the properties of water works the same as the properties for gasoline. Any disagreement another deity has once again could not be solved.
These simple and basic problems of Mormonism doesn’t just apply with the basic things we take for granted in life such as morality, science, and reasoning but everything period. Let’s say you want to destroy rock music and I want to keep it preserved. We could not go to a god who is a judge in court to determine whose standard is correct simply because their is a god above that judge, and the line will go on forever. The other problem is we couldn’t even determine what the concept of rock music would be ontologically.
We couldn’t determine if anybody should get ice cream for a snack if there was a god that desired it all for himself. Perhaps I want to collect every pogo-stick in the universe so nobody else could have them. Imagine all the gods that exists argued about everything and every topic. It would be extremely confusing and it be impossible to solve any random conflict that could occur if their are even two separate gods. Its absurd enough for millions and growing amounts of gods. Mormonism fails to provide an account and justification for anything at all due to the lack of absolute and universal truths which only Christianity provides.
