Re: Universal Resurrection confusion

Yeh yeh. Actually...that was a quote from 28 Days with Sandra Bullock. I plagiarized.

Jokes aside...the bottom line for me is resurrection is contradictory.

Re: Universal Resurrection confusion

To equate the poorly phrased "that same body" with an utter restoration of each body cell might be tempting and might even raise the question you have presented but I don't think (I'd have to check for sure) that the Biblical scripture makes such an ambiguously worded claim. It sounds more like a 1...

Universal Resurrection confusion

Mormon's believe in a universal resurrection, which includes plants and animals. As I recall, they also believe that the same body which you die in is what will be resurrected--IE, the same cells and material, etc. As a young person I had a problem with the whole idea. I am composed of the plants an...

Re: "Thirst for my blood..."

I checked for that quote online, and apparently it first appears as a second hand account by Daniel Tyler in the Aug. 15,1892 "Juvenile Instructor." Wilford Woodruff and others give an account of Joseph saying something like this during the Kirtland Banking crisis, so it's likely that Joseph said s...

"Thirst for my blood..."

OK,...I've been gone a while, but when I was out for a walk a few days ago and having a relaxing thought, the question came to mind: "How many things have I been taught that are totally false?" A big one jumped to mind. "When you enlist to serve the Lord Jesus Christ you leave neutral ground forever...

Re: Mission rules are now just suggestions.

During my mission time, our traveling GA told us it was a toss-up between who had the strictest mission, us or one other mission. We weren't allowed to leave the flat without our whites,...including doing laundry or anything else. Music was allowed, but ONLY MO-TAB. And, there were a bunch of other ...

Re: Thoughts on Mozart and Joseph Smith

From the little I know about Mozart, he was probably a Savant. I've seen YouTube videos of a blind savant boy who can play the piano from memory and just hearing it. He remembers ALL the songs he's heard, and you can ask him to improvise in the style of one or another composer and mix up the music. ...

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...

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: 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.
