Re: RFM and Peter Bleakley

I finally finished this podcast today. One thing that was interesting was when Peter was going on about church leaders lying not getting revelation. Is it just me, or did they reach a point where Peter didn't want to dig deeper? He stated that for he thought leaders didn't want to admit that they we...

Re: US Space Force - safe for my raccoon?

I am beginning to suspect that belief actually changes the universe. As we extract exotic materials out of what seemed so simple as to be sand, we change the very nature of existence. There actually is some truth to that. Our way of think to some degree shapes the world around us. If you are intere...

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

Sister Ryder and I both tested positive earlier this week. So far fairly mild and manageable. The biggest worry is wondering if this is the worst of it or if this coming week will get worse. The weird headache has me up at night. Not having to sweat through polyester polygamy panties has been comfo...

Re: Kwaku, FAIRMomon, and terminating Dehlin

I'm just not sure how you can both claim that these videos are effective both in terms of the audience and view count, but also turn off all measures of showing that publicly. This is SOP for LDS Inc. Just look at how they stopped reporting membership numbers. When the growth of the church stopped ...

... and I can't think of anybody before that, so let's just say that Adam was the first man." It literally makes me laugh out loud when biblical apologists say things like "I think people 'back then' had better memories than we have today, because..." (insert laughable apologetic argument here.) So...

Re: Kwaku, FAIRMomon, and terminating Dehlin

If you think of apologetics as lying, then these new FAIRMormon Kwaku videos are basically hiring a gang of carnival barkers to do the lying. It is thought that carnival barkers can be very effective with Mormon youth who have never been exposed to FAIR Mormon . I wonder if there is more truth to t...

I got DW a Kurig Duo for Christmas. That is a combo carafe and K-cup coffee maker. She was very excited to get that. Amazing how much has changed in 6 years for us. Or get and give "normal" Christmas presents like a coffeemaker, gift card to Starbuck's, some bubbly sparkling wine for New Year's Eve,...

Re: We now know what Hagoth did when he left in a ship

I haven't heard about the cocaine mummies for a long time but I'd like to look into it more and see if I can find better sources. Ancient Origins is a semi-reputable site that ranges from accurate archeology to wild conjectures about ancient aliens and Atlantis. Reviews I looked at repeatedly used ...

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

Today is my last day of quarantine. According to the State of WV, They went off of first day of symptoms, so Monday was the last day of that. According to where I work, they go off of the first positive test, so today is my last day for that. Man, is is a pity my last day of quarantine is our last d...

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

I got sick over the weekend and got tested as part of going to the doc. My test results are positive. So despite my efforts, I am a plague carrier.

With the BS going on in my area over Covid, I'm annoyed but not surprised.

Re: Kwaku, FAIRMomon, and terminating Dehlin

So I got another response from FAIR. It is interesting to re-read your conversation with FAIR in light of RFM's latest podcast Mormonism Live #1. In that podcast, both RFM and Bill Reel talk about their time at FAIR doing apologetic. RFM describes the system of FAIR when someone sends in an e-mail ...

Re: Zygotes on thrones

In the King Follett discourse Joseph Smith tells us that infants and children who died before the age of accountability get a go-directly-to-the-CK card and are enthroned as gods in "yonder heavens." Isn't there something about there will be no death of children in the Millennium? Something along t...

I've mentioned this before, but in my ward, I've been blacklisted. As punishment for teaching Primary children that Joseph Smith had multiple wives, I am not allowed to hold a calling, speak or pray in Sacrament meeting, I am not ministered to or given a ministering assignment. I'm not even asked t...

Re: Jews in Space

I think proof of alien life would be just fine with Mormonism. The PoGP has the line in there about "Worlds without number have I created..." or something like that. So the idea that one of those other worlds would have intelligent life would not conflict with Mormon theology. However, if we were to...
