Re: The Great Apostasy didn’t really happen according to new Maxwell Institute book.

Despite the Church yammering on about apostasy for over 170 years, the LDS Church came out of 19th Century Christianity and bears very little resemblance to the early talk of Jesus around 100 AD. I think the Maxwell Institute trying to correct this longstanding Church falsehood is a good thing.

Did you know that in Utah, churches that serve sacramental wine as a part of communion are required to be licensed by the state?

Mormons are able to gaslight themselves

What do you think about individual Mormon's ability to gaslight themselves and that they do so all the time?

Re: Noah and the Flood

The Noah story was borrowed from Gilgamesh. It is fictional; any religious traditions expounding on this story are also fictional.

Here is an interesting video on what happened to Joseph and Hyrum in the Carthage jail:

I could list other examples of a type of "common law" that might have been practiced in Utah.
I would love to read more examples.

Re: Non-Christian checklist

Besides taking their name off the list, the Latter-day Saints would add another checklist category:
  • The Philosophies, Arts, and Sciences of Mankind.

Evangelicals would add one more:
  • Failure to worship the orange-skinned Florida Man.

This could help free up General Authorities to borrow Catholic sermons for General Conference talks.

Re: Non-Christian checklist

Except that Catholicism is not on that list, you would think it was put together by Jack Chick. (Unless the Bloody Mary reference was to the Catholic Queen of England, Mary Tudor).

The Godhood would consist of God, Jesus, Joseph, and Holy Ghost. President Azrael Q. McConkie would have suggested that Joseph is at the top of the list.

Hopefully, you did not drink too much baijiu for Chinese New Year, but if you did, then have some oolong tea to calm your tummy.

Re: Bath Golden Plates

Just free-associating on the word Bath. Did you know it is Epiphany Day (January 19) in Russia when members of the Russian Orthodox Church like to cut holes in the ice of frozen lakes and rivers and plunge into the icy waters? If they were Mormons they could warm up afterward with a nice hot chocola...

Wow, so much of that stuff is still here. I really enjoyed the Saltaire footage. The train track grade is still there and I always wondered what kind of vehicle ran on it. In order to get people to the LDS Saltair, there were trolley lines from downtown SLC. To make it even more popular, this LDS r...

If I'm not mistaken the actual article says "Boys will be boys". Am I wrong there?
Sounds even worse because of that tautology thing.
