Re: The Road not taken. by Robert Frost.

Another poetry lover here. Your post sent me on a quest for my favorite anthology called The Best Loved Poems of the American People. I think all the poets mentioned on this thread are represented in that volume. Happily I found it. The composer Randall Thompson chose a set of poems by Frost to put ...

Many thanks to President Mopag! I could only handle a little of this today, but my NOM friends made it bearable.

Seriously. That would explain a lot. They could keep deep faking until he's 115 with AI.
As long as it keeps Oaks from taking charge, I'm all for it!!! :lol:
Then do the same with Uchdorf until Susan's husband goes. This could be inspired tech.

Good makeup work. Great tan on a 99 year old.

Good makeup work. Great tan on a 99 year old. Looks surprisingly well for his age given how unforgiving 4K cameras can be.

+50 for the organist for pulling out the big stops. That is a fine instrument. You can buy anything in this world with money.

I'll give him some credit for using a teaching of Jesus as the foundation. +5.

He almost made a good point but he had to play both sides against the middle.

Re: The Brigham Wheel

I've often thought the Conference Center could fit a Space Mountain sized indoor roller coaster inside along with several simulation rides. Cumora Coaster and Wings Over Moab and probably a few more.

Re: The usefulness of prophets

I suppose prophets would be a very useful thing if they actually existed. As far as I can tell, the opinion of the average Man on the Street is exactly as useful as Russel M. Nelson's. They have spent and continue to expand great efforts to lower our expectations of what prophets actually are in ou...

Re: Slowly fading away? The future of NOM?

I'm glad our admins are reasonably committed to not doing a Thayne repeat. This board still feels more like home to me than others. I don't fit the vibe of exmo Reddit, in fact I consider it a success if my comments there get equal up and down votes. Then it feels like I might actually be contributi...

Re: Feelin the feels.

In Mormonism we often get the stories of someone getting an impression that someone else, and even someone unknown to the one with the impression, is in need of assistance. I tend to accept that we may well have avenue of communication between us that or science has yet to study in depth. Where I di...

Re: FAIR's how-to-study guide

Holy The Ghost flees from cognitive dissonance. (That's the way I read in that first quote. That ghost is such a wimp.) If only I could draw, there are so many good cartoon ideas . . . https://st.depositphotos.com/1001911/1256/v/950/depositphotos_12566918-stock-illustration-scared-ghost.jpg

You should probably PM alas. She spends Summers in that area IIRC. This part of the board gets used infrequently so probably won't be seen by many.

Re: Revisiting my thoughts on an afterlife.

This is an interesting subject for me. My current thinking is, I think, an outgrowth of the same kind of thinking that brought about my disaffection with Mormonism. To do that, I had to put what I wanted aside and allow myself to attempt in my imperfect way determine what is. So, while I am sure I m...
