Before I even got a bass, I already had the bass-ics (lol ) down? For christmas I got my first bass, and I remember trying basses out in music stores and being able to play them quite well, when I had never played a bass before. Is it because I've played guitar for 4 years, or because I'm a ****in' genius?

Yep, you're a genius.

If you've been playing guitars you've got the basics already, I had the same thing but the other way, I first played bass 3 years and then got a guitar, and could play some simple songs immediately, even though I never played the bass with a pick before I started playing guitar.

you moved from guitar to bass?
obviously not a genius

No, I still play both.

I could slap on my first time playing too.

Yes but was your technique any good. IS the way your playing at the moment going to cause you pain further down the line. Are you even playing in time. The list goes on and on.

Go practise now and make sure your doing everything right.

While we're on the subject, when I first tried bass, I seemingly tore a hole in the space time continuum, and saw what looked to be the glowing glory of heaven, was I doing it right?

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

It's great to see some modesty in this forum. You probably just convinced yourself you're good.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.
