Re: What is the official story on the fate of the Golden Plates?

What evidence do we have that there were actually "plates". Is that evidence reliable and convincing as opposed to an alternative hypothesis like I don't know, say...Joseph made it all up? -lost Should we consider them to be in the phantom zone or perhaps regarded as Schrödinger's plates? Alfred Hi...

According to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, John D. Lee was an LDS majo...

Re: New Mission Presidents

The church just called 105 couples to preside over missions. What if one of them was you? What would you do different as a mission President or matron? A mission presidency to one of the Asian countries would be fun just for the food. I would have the missionaries cease proselytizing and offer serv...

Re: Chose their whiteness over democracy

One of the posters at Mormon Discussions recently strongly denounced the concept of democracy because it interfered with the election of his Trump messiah. The majority of Republicans in the House also voted to abandon democracy. I see the underlying factor not being whiteness, but rather a desire t...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

I can't shake the opinion that his attempt to drain the swamp looks more like filling a cesspool. The whole idea of replacing swamp water with raw sewage was very Trumpian, but the magic was getting his followers to inhale deeply and relish the scent. More insults. Can you explain to me why you thi...

Re: What is Parker?

I recently involved myself in a little bit in QANON. It was unavoidable when I saw evidence that John F Kennedy Jr, his wife and sister who supposedly died in a plane crash seemed to be alive. JFK Jr was running for a senate seat in New York. Hillary Clinton decided that she needed that seat in her...

Re: Graceful Transfer of Power

Republican rioters were able to make off with computer notebooks and lecterns but missed out on big-screen TVs. They did leave behind pipebombs, firearms, and Molotov cocktails, perhaps in recompense.

Re: What is Parker?

Now that Parler is down, what about the Kremlin furnishing servers and the St. Petersburg hacking collective create a new posting app for Trump and his supporters? Putin still has the goal of bringing down the United States, and the assistance to Trump would further that agenda.
