Re: The Hopi Prophecy The Blue Kachina Returning

I just realized the book I have "Fingerprints of the Gods" was written by him! Very interesting and rational author, at least when he wrote that book. (For some reason I though Fingerprints of the Gods was different from mine until I saw a picture of the cover.) Yep, that's his biggest seller. The ...

Re: The Hopi Prophecy The Blue Kachina Returning

And Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" is actually about his initiation into the mysteries! I simply have to look into this more. Going down the rabbit hole is a clue that he was initiated, because it always involves a downward movement, because you are entering the underworld, or at least the O...

Re: Fear as motivating conservative values

I'm grateful for Satan. Without that, I wouldn't have discovered how easily I am controlled by fear--which is what was interesting on this thread.

Now that I know fear has many catalysts, I can steer clear better.

Re: The Hopi Prophecy The Blue Kachina Returning

Now this makes me look like a conspiracy theory nutjob. I am not so. I am. I'm not afraid to say it. People in power "conspire" to keep the power, and they fight in any arena that challenges them. It is conspiracy. This is a delightful interview! I highly recommend it, seriously. I haven't seen the...

Re: The Hopi Prophecy The Blue Kachina Returning

What did my heart a world of good, a WORLD of good I tells ya, is when Hancock basically said Sitchin and his ancient UFO stuff is just stupid. He (Sitchin) is misreading things. It is silly to get so zany and misread even if it is "creatively" the ancient materials. Now that you mention this, I do...

Apologeticsislying,....Rogan is on record as believing that most UFO enthusiasts are "f@cking crazy"; however!....some are not. Joe is a natural skeptic but despite his rather gruff approach and admittedly heavy drug use, he is a very pragmatic and clear thinker, at least from his arguments on the s...

Re: The Hopi Prophecy The Blue Kachina Returning

I've read a lot of Hancock's work and also find him fascinating. Also, Rogan's interviews with Graham are also fascinating. The whole comet thing, especially with the discussion of the layers of geological earth that corroborate the whole idea, is compelling. I'm no expert on the topic by any means,...

Re: Reformed Egyptian

The church has made so many changes i dont even know if i would recognize it if i went back. I still remember going to primary on Tuesday...and eating lunch before going back to sacrament meeting...and slitting my throat if i talked about names and symbols. What has TSCC morphed into? Sent from my S...

Re: Reformed Egyptian

It is literally all on fire, burning down! I've been gone for a while, but occasionally poke my head in and have a look-see. Apologetics,....your comment above summarizes what I have felt for quite a while. I can't help but MARVEL over my TBM days. I caught myself, unfortunately (or fortunately?) a...

Re: Dating and Pornography - Ensign 10/19

Wow! What an over the top article on porn! I actually went in the article and read it because I thought the opening post was being sarcastic about the church wanting dating couples to talk about porn together! Absolutely ridiculous! And most of the time completely inappropriate! On the other hand, ...

Re: Dating and Pornography - Ensign 10/19

Another technique for teaching young priesthood holders to lie. If you punish people for honesty their only option is to become skilled liars. Let's face it, in the age of the internet pretty much all young men have seen pornography (and probably the young women this is aimed at too). If you narrow...

Re: Emma - Victim or Co-Conspirator?

I read Rough Stone Rolling and found it heart-breaking that Emma patroled around everywhere to keep track of her husband. Every time she didn't he was off with a new woman. When I read it, the word CODEPENDENT came blasting through. Emma was, at least IMHO, co-dependent with her husband. From that u...

Re: Brushes with "the other side"?

I love things like Globeki Tepi. It does several things: 1. Blows holes in Bruce R. McConkie and Joseph Fielding Smith's idea that no death existed on this planet before 6000+ years ago. 2. Blows holes in the general archeological thought that organized civiliations didn't exist before the Babylonia...

Re: Brushes with "the other side"?

If alien abductions turn out to be real, I think I will join you in laughing MAO. It would be hilarious if the alien believers turn out to be correct. Scary, but hilarious. But with AA, I have never heard of outside corroborating evidence. Have you? cause it would be fun to hear some. But from the ...

Still doesn’t explain why some OOBE and NDE have confirmation from witnesses that the person saw something that they could not physically see. That is the explanation I am waiting for. I haven't followed the topic enough to know of anything but reminiscences and anecdotal examples of this - and I d...

Re: Brushes with "the other side"?

I mean, I think that alien abductions are really sleep paralysis, and they are terrifying. I'm gunna laugh my ass off if there ends up being something to the alien abductions (and I mean that in a GOOD way). Also, there is a fair amount of literature on the topic of astral projection that is quite ...

I still feel like I am in the thick of it. Not out to enough family yet, still waiting for a son to return from a mission, another son deciding when to go etc., but I feel a constant anxiety with Mormon stuff. Its become kind of toxic to me, I think causing some health issues to boot. So I have sca...

Re: Running out of post power--and interest...

Just curious for those that feel that they are moving on (including OP), do you still attend on a regular basis? For myself, I would love to move on but my wife enjoys attending and I don't see her wanting to stop anytime soon. I'd love to move on and be done because I came to my conclusion several...
