Re: Hypocrisy vs an honest lack of belief?

Yeah, that sucks. I have done this twice now. I intentionally "revealed" my disbelief at DWs behest to keep the family gossip to a minimum. So, I am sitting there in the lobby with a couple other endowed (but believing) family members and we got the "You can overcome your struggles and be part of th...

Re: Forced Turning Point

It would certainly not work to be a non-tither in my stake in the morridor. That would be a non-starter.

Post Covid Meetups?

Not sure if we are post covid or not... My family is interested in reaching out to other post-mormons types for us and our adult children in the east valley AZ area. There used to be some meet ups, but they seem to have mostly fizzled out due to covid. Has anyone gone to one of these? Are the worth ...

Re: Mormon Stories episodes 1412 and 1413

DW just finished these as well, and came to almost this exact same conclusion. I told her I may listen and she said don't bother.

Wow! I am out of it for a bit and I come back to this thread! First, if you choose to proceed, you will certainly make an awesome bishop! But frankly, were I in your shoes, I would decline... I am glad to hear you are connecting with DW and making progress there either way. Sending my best cosmic vi...

Re: Estrangement

Sorry to hear that you are feeling estranged. That sucks. DW has gone to lengths to hide our disaffection from our family. However, there is still some suspicion, so we still get avoided a little. Our disaffection? ..we still get avoided..” Is the wife out now too? Holy cow! That is awesome. Yeah, ...

ETA: also, if Joseph was riffing on old maps he might have seen in the library, Nehem was a place that appeared on maps of Arabia at least as far back as the 18th century, as seen in the popular 1794 D'Anville map (notice there is also a river):
This is Gold, nice research Hagoth.

Re: Does anyone have a NHM explainer handy by chance?

There's no such thing as a bulls-eye — that's not how scholarship works. The Book of Mormon is fully consistent with its composition timeframe, c. 1829-30. The anachronisms make an ancient origin impossible. So "NHM" has zero explanatory value. One of the Books of the Bible is "Nahum" — the Bible i...
