Re: Her shelf is beginning to Crack!!!

D&D is a thing? Funny that I never heard anything about it being of Satan!!! Is it a Utah thing? D&D was a big target for the Satanic Panic back in the 1980's. This was a nationwide hysteria, not just Utah. LOT of people thought that D&D was somehow summoning demons or some other BS. There are plen...

Re: Buckle up for AI "evidence"

The BBC had an article yesterday where they found that despite the massive hype around AI, it's not nearly are preventive as people think. Only about 2% people use it on a daily basis.

Re: The Prophet and Apostles are out living their wives.

Not to mention the lost sleep when you get woken up in the middle of the night by your husband kicking you out of the bedroom because he is getting a message from his priesthood antenna.

Psychics & Ballards

In the latest round of lawsuits around the Tim Ballard mess, the lawsuit claims that Tim Ballard's staff psychic also was employed by M. Russel Ballard as his personal psychic. It will be interesting if they can present any actual evidence of this or if it is all just hearsay. Additionally, the amen...

Re: Best part of conference?

I spend Saturday conference in Sugar Creek, OH. Amish country. Sunday was in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I would say I didn't miss anything. Did you go by the nesting site (Bath Road) of the blue herons? That's pretty cool to see. Were you in Ohio for the eclipse? It exceeded my expectations. Th...

Re: From 15th to 23rd

Since the whole discussion of happiness is based on the Gallup poll, it is interesting that that pole is getting criticism in that it is inherently flawed. According to one study, the way it is worded would favor someone who is better off financially, not necessarily happy with friends and family. I...

Re: The Mormon church is looking to crack down on... garments?!

The church is missing a major opportunity here. With the rise and acceptance of tattooing, LDSinc could open sacred temple tattoo parlors where the marks are tattooed on, for a nominal price. Of course, these tattoos would require regular touch-up work to maintain their symbolism. Renew your TR by g...

Re: Would you do it all over?

This is a difficult question for me. Growing up, I was very introverted. I wasn't good at talking to strangers or even talking with girls. For the girls, Church was a large contributing factor. You are constantly told how you have to be careful around them and they can cause you to do bad stuff. For...

Admitadly It's been a long time since I had a TR interview. The question I remember was "Do you war the garment night and day as instructed in the temple?" Did this get changed sometime over the last decade to be more open? I do wonder how they will deal with Mormon celebrities / pop figures / athle...

I usually just say, (if it comes up):

"I used to be a member of the LDS church but I'm not any more."
I say:

I was raised Mormon, but I got better. Being on the East coast, Mormonism is only a minor player in the religion thing. So this usually gets a laugh out of whoever I tell it to.

Just that. And I'd be amazed with just that. An actual, verifiable revelation. I don't actually care what is is about, but some communication from deity.

I'm not holding my breath.

Re: Tithe or you'll be burned?

I always heard that in regard to D&C 64:23 "Behold, now it is called today until the coming of the Son of Man, and verily it is a day of sacrifice, and a day for the tithing of my people; for he that is tithed shall not be burned at his coming." The idea that I have always heard is that paying tithi...
