For the record, the traditional Protestant view of immortality just doesn't do it for me. I really do think I'd rather stop existing than to sit around forever telling someone how great they are, while stagnating eternally, just to avoid roasting in a lake of fire and brimstone (which, for what it's worth, is how we describe Lucifer's plan, in a nutshell).
For me, the difference in how Mormonism envisions
eternity and how eternity is described in so many other denominations is
the single, biggest difference imaginable. I want to believe in the
Mormon vision; I have no desire whatsoever to believe the other view.
To me, Protestant Heaven is a perfect description of damnation - and,
frankly, the view held by too many Mormons that the Celestial
Kingdom will be a place for people who, essentially, are copies of each
other is one more way I would describe Hell.
I like the laboratory
view - even though I don't like studying science all that much,
comparatively. I'll be one of the gods reading jokes to everyone and
playing a musical instrument to lessen the stress as they work out the
physical creation stuff - one of the ones who breaks up potential fights
when things get tense and someone is tempted to blow up someone else's
That's who I am now, and that's who I want to be
then. I like who I have become over the decades learning how to be
