Re: Doubters are lazy learners!!!!!

I believe "lazy learner" is a phrase for an artificial intelligence algorithm. If I understand it correctly, the algorithm requires experience trials to develop. Modification of the learner is through experience only. In a eager learner algorithm, there are programmed assumptions. So the lazy learne...

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

3 of the 5 of us in my household are fully vaccinated. Too rural for my older teem to get Pfizer until we can travel for her to get it. Youngest is too young.

Re: Netflix doco - Murder amoung the Mormons

Thanks, I didn't want to go back and watch the episode. Also, the Brent Metcalfe thing I referenced above was wrong--the book was by Joseph's cousin Elias Smith according to John Dehlin on reddit.

Re: Sexism of exmormon men

This week at Mormon Enlightenment, a postmo man started a thread asking people to come up with a name for a group of middle aged Mormon women. Examples suggested included a "herd" and other terms referring to animals. Misogyny ensued. Feminists called them out. They are now confused why their good f...

I usually get an ad for chatting with the missionaries as the top result then NOM. I think they’ve increased their search budget recently. Everyone needs to search “Is Lori Vallow Mormon? to connect the dooms say cult to Mormonism. I’m still annoyed the church hasn’t been connected in the main stre...

Must have been a fluke. I just googled New Order Mormon and LDS Inc did not have any hits on the first or second page.
NOM was first, and then a bunch of posts about what a NOM is.
Thats what I usually get. Now I am seeing their page *sometimes* but when I do, its first.

Re: Sexism of exmormon men

I normally love Lindsay. I felt this post danced around the issue, to try not to trigger the fragile men while trying to get them to see, a bit, their privilege and how they think by leaving they are woke while they go on to harm and silence women. And she didn't go far enough to make it clear. Alas...

Re: LDS Church proposes new community near future Tooele Valley Temple

The Temple was being built in Erda to boost housing development sales. Once the housing development was off the table, there was no sense building the Temple in a pasture. Build it in Tooele and they will come. Afterward Temple goers can nourish and strengthen their bodies at Popeyes' Louisiana Kit...
