I walked up the road to get some smokes tonight.

On the way, I bumped into some Mormons, Elder Johnson, and Elder Na, from New Mexico, USA and Korea respectively.

For a change, I pimped *my* version of reality on them as they accompanied me to the shop and back.

I served it up to them, and to their credit they listened, and commented.

At the end of the day, we agreed it was going nowhere, because they needed me to believe in a concept of god, and I wouldn't, so we agreed that we had conflicting premises and that no meaningful conversation could really be had.

However, it was fun to ask them “Are you guys virgins?”, “What do you think about gay marriage?”, “Do you know what the words deterministic and causality mean?”.

The answers, “Yes”, “No”, “No”.

Na commented that he'd never even heard of homosexuality until he came to Australia on mission. He had a truly dumb-founded look on his face too, it was highly amusing, sort of like watching a child realise something for the first time. Yes, that's right Na, they do *that*.. ;)

I invited them in, but they decided that they had to leave.

Haha. I win! :)
