Re: What do you all do for tithing settlement?

Wait for the phone call. They call those who don't attend settlement. Say "yes" and go on with things.

Just watch for the SCMC guy at the next table taking pictures on his smartphone. The ear radio might be a tell.

There's a lesser movie that I always liked, Tequila Sunrise. Blood is not thicker than water.

Warning, lots of harsh language.

Re: The Ninety Day Challenge

I was on the 8 week MTC model for foreign languages. You had an hour a day to study and read the Book of Mormon. I finished in week 6 as I recall. No one else in my district of 10 got through it. I was surprised I was the only one. there was no shortage of time.

Re: The Second Sacred Grove

Isn't this version also the one that could be later than 1832? That 1832 is the earliest it could be but that it could be as late as 1838 other something?

Maybe im mixed up.

Re: New Missionary Program?

I was a babysitter on my mission for most of the people the mission broke or shouldn't have been there. Not that actual missionary work was productive either. But stranding people on missions with other people who can't care for them properly helps neither person and only spreads the damage. It was ...

Re: What's with the Mormon Discussions warning?

Ok, I just checked myself in Firefox. I get the warning too. This is about the digital certificate that guarantees https identities.

Their certificate expired yesterday. A bunch of certificates will be invalidated in Chrome update 70 so expect to see it more often.

Re: What's with the Mormon Discussions warning?

Probably related to the difference between HTTP and HTTPS which is a secured and encrypted connection where HTTP is plaintext connections. Chrome usually warns you about http sites. Most sites now offer HTTPS. And you should use https wherever possible as best practice.

This has been his gospel hobby since the April 1990 conferencewhen he spoke tediuosuly on this topic. Hinkley pretty much blew him off with his own talks and usage anyway.

Re: Dallin Oaks - a fantasy

Ginsberg wrote my fantasy for Oaks in Howl, line 36.

A link since the moderators would not condone a quote as the content is, hmmmm, harsh.

Re: Christine Blasey Ford's Court of Love

Why did she come forth with these accusations when this guy was appointed to lower courts years ago? I thought this was a forum dedicated to the LDS Church etc and not a forum for political garba...

Re: There is no such thing as free will

It's not that there is no choice at all. But choice is limited to those things that are causal. See https://pathofthebeagle.com/2013/10/06/contra-causal-free-will/ But yes it does change how you view criminal responsibility. So rather than say he chose to do evil one would say what caused that choic...

Re: There is no such thing as free will

This is a literary quote, not science. Darkness means opacity in this case. We don't know the source of thoughts. They often appear unbidden from our subconscious. Indeed when tasked with moving one hand or the other on a signal, science can read the unconscious decision around .5 to 7 seconds befor...

Re: There is no such thing as free will

Causal free will as opposed to contra-causal free will are the more common terms. But I've shared this quote before. The thoughts of all men arise from darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how can you call your thoughts your own? How could...
