Re: Why Intelligent Design doesn't work for Mormonism

I have read a couple of books about Intelligent Design by a LDS biologists. An LDS biologist was an expert witness at the Kitzmiller v. Dover evolution case. I keep seeing the concept of Intelligent Design pop up in LDS conversations and articles. The problem is that Intelligent Design doesn't work...

Re: Are youth really leaving?

When I was just off my mission in Bountiful every stake had its own young adult ward. Now that my kids are that age most of Farmington and Centerville make up just one young adult ward. That’s a huge area to form just one ward.

The good news is that my kids are not active.

Maybe he was a masturbation All-Star so they awarded him with the additional shame and guilt by putting him on the pamphlet.

Re: Second anointing and the priesthood

This is why women cannot be ordained to the priesthood of Jesus Christ. Because he (Jesus) is not her lord. Her husband is her lord. Well, that makes sense, in a weird, sick sort of way... In the temple endowment a women is told that she will be a priestess “unto” her husband. So if a woman is invo...

Re: Morrissey and the Church

I've always loved The Smiths. Took my son when Morrissey was at the U about a year ago.

This makes me sad, I didn't know he embraced the alt-right ideologies.

Johnny Marr is one hell of a good guitar player.

Miracle or medicine?

I recently caught up with my best friend from childhood. A bit of background, we grew up in the same ward, left on our missions one week apart. We were each good influences on each other. We each have three sons, about the same age. A few years ago we were skiing and talking about sons going on miss...

I was about 10 years old when SWK lifted the PH ban for black men. Even as a 10 year old I realized the PH ban was bullshit.

I think it’s wishful thinking, they won’t permit coffee in my lifetime. I just bought a coffee maker so I don’t care.

Will the Church be able to rebuild the structure keeping the intact brick walls?
More importantly, were the pictures of Jesus miraculously not burned in the inferno?
Yep. Miracles abound.

The church is going to stick this on the contractor.

Re: WOW. The natural history sure blows holes in LDS Theology!

This is just one more area where the church painted itself into a corner. From the beginning church leadership and lesson manuals said the same thing, that there was no death until A&E ate the fruit. They still cling to that at times, but they are a lot less vocal about it. Just a few years ago JRH ...

It's that passive/aggressive behavior that mormonism has perfected, along with the inherent belief that they are 100% correct in all things.
