Re: Kwaku, FAIRMomon, and terminating Dehlin

I am trying to avoid giving him any hit, so I don't want to watch the video in question. Can someone summaries the major points of it or provide a link to someone who does? Bill Reel and RFM were rather vague about it.

Re: Did Netasha Helfer-Parker get Exed?

I'm wonder if they tried to work with her at all. She said the reason for her phone was because she needed her notes off it because her printer wouldn't work earlier that day. If the stake were reasonable, they could offer to let her e-mail those notes to the Exec Sec who could then easily print of...

Announced on the Mormon Stories Facebook page.

Netasha has been ex'ed. Turns out the "rescheduling" was really a trial in absentia.

How classy of them... :roll:

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

Got my 2nd dose yesterday as well. On on hand, I don't have a fever after this one and it is a relief to be done with this. However, my arm pain is worse than the 1st round, I've got bad body aches, and I just feel completely drained of energy. I am hoping that like the 1st dose, this all wraps up ...

Re: Any genetic evidence found of Lehi's migration to America?

So what about General Zelph? Any speculation as to his genetic heritage or whether he was born at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles? I don't suppose anyone thought to keep Zelph's bones? It would be interesting to run DNA testing on it to see who it really was. But I doubt that the bones exist a...

Re: Any genetic evidence found of Lehi's migration to America?

Earlier this year, RFM had an interview with a Geneticist from Australia. They went into a lot of detail about the science of genetics and how things would look if the BOM were what was claimed. I really enjoyed this episode. Major credit to Dr. Simon Southerton for being able to take a very complex...

Well, I've got it downloaded and in the que. However, it will likely be Tuesday or Wednesday of next week before I get a chance to start listening.

As a PSA - Kwaku is going to be live with RFM and Bill Reel tonight on 'Mormonism Live' I can't listen live, but am looking forward to listening to this tomorrow! :o :o :o Assuming that Kwaku doesn't pull out at the last minute like a lot of apologies tend to do, this could be a really interesting ...

Edit/P.P.S: Any of you NoM-Folk who actually contracted the virus have any "Long COVID" / lingering issues? Fortunately no for me. Had it back at the beginning of the year and it was a mild case of miserable. It took about 3 weeks to feel up to 85% of normal and another 3 weeks to feel back to “nor...

Re: The 2020 numbers

Given how much there was this conference about "lazy learners" and "doubt your doubts", if you combine that info with the majorly low baby birth members, could that be where the church is really hurting? Can we draw a correlation between the two? They are loosing the members who are of child bearing...

Re: Forced Turning Point

Did you accept the calling? I may have missed that.

You could always make a game out of it. See how long you can go as bishop and never once mention Joseph Smith? Base you talks around the Bible and use quotes from sources outside Mormonism. See how long you can go before anyone notices.

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

Utah currently has 13.6% of the population fully vaccinated. The rest of the United States is at 18.7%. I imagine the disparity lies in Utah's unique religious/political makeup. Worldwide, 1.8% of the population has been fully vaccinated. As I have watched a lot of the numbers for vaccination, I th...

Re: The 2020 numbers

A couple things that stood out to me. Wasn't the peak baptisms and babies born somewhere around 2010 something like about 150,000 of each per year? Isn't that around the time of the push to double convert baptisms? I'm I'm wrong with my numbers or dates, let me know. If so it is surprising that birt...
