I learned in seminary that there’s no menstruation in heaven because there’s no more blood. Take that bit of space doctrine as you will.
It’s interesting the blood is the problem and not say, that every single egg is fertilized in turn.
Yes. After her infinite number of eggs have ovulated.
Since they’re infinite…
I wonder about that too. Since she occupies a physical, finite space, where does she keep them all?
I think she’s infinitely ginormous. That’s the only logical conclusion.
Or she has an infinitely large petri dish to store them in. Maybe it’s all ivf in the eternities.
Geez, I’m out of it for a little while, and Heavenly Mother gets delusions of grandeur.
The real mind-blower, for me, has always been whether those eggs are subject to attrition, or does each one, uh, produce? Which leads to further incomprehensible mysteries. (Who changes all those diapers, wipes all those hands and faces, and tends all those wild creatures? Or whatever it is that must be done to bring up a horde of heavenly offspring?)
Well, if she’s as old as He is in the temple film, I’d assume she’s BTDT. Do you think she takes hormones for the hot flashes?
For Heaven’s sake where is your reverence?
Can I just say I love the new post style with just a question.
Quite the brilliant move. I’m going to start trying that
Not to worry–I hear that Heavenly Father is protecting Heavenly Mother from this thread.
No. 12 Lynnette FTW.
She already did when she lived on an earth with our Father in Heaven and she was between the ages of 45-55.
So there you have it!!!!!
Glad to be of service
But why would she *want* to go through menopause when she can spend the rest of eternity popping out spirit children (which is what I’ve been told she’s doing by more than one source)?
Which also makes my question to my 11th grade seminary teacher about the fact that Mormons are the only faith that believe in having sex for eternity all the more relevant.
If you’re a God, I’m sure you can have happen whatever you’d like to have happen. God lives not with limitations. Nothing is impossible with God. If God creates a rule, such as menstruation, surely God can undo whatever they choose; if not, God would get caught up for eternity in their own CREATED limitations.
Wait—I’m confused. Are you arguing that menopause is a limitation or that not going through menopause would be a limitation?
As a God, without limitations, without any impossibilities, whatever you experience would surely be based on whatever rules you create or undo. If you had limitations, you wouldn’t be God. Or if you CREATED limitations or rules that you couldn’t get out — such as endless menstruation — you would find yourself eternally in a less-than state which you would only continue to spiral yourself downward into, into an eternal prison state of rules, of your own creation.
If God couldn’t undo their own creations and rules, they wouldn’t be God.
I think if she’s unlimited the question has no meaning. After all, she can gestate and give birth to a million spirits at once through her little finger. As can her husband. In fact, if God is omnipotent, Heavenly Mother really isn’t needed at all.
Lynette, I think I love you forever just for #12.
All I can think of is if Heavenly Mother is having millions and billions of spirit babies, where is she finding time to have sex in the first place?
I mean we only have three and it’s hard to schedule . . .
Maybe menopause is the best thing that could happen to her.
Well, if she’s infinitely large . . . I’m not even sure what to conclude.
Having an infinite number of eggs and being eternally pregnant doesn’t really sound like my idea of heaven, so I’m glad I signed up for something else.
In response to 11–what I realized is that people don’t necessarily read anything besides the title before they comment anyway.
I had a a prof at BYU in a religion class that brought this up, but i can’t remember what we all decided. Something crazy about the female form will be “perfected” to be more like the male form in a reproductive sense – since men can produce an infinite number of sperm… Darn, I wish I could remember his name, but he was awesome.
#12 – that made my whole life.
