Re: Coffee 101

I'm pretty simple: I hand grind beans and steep them in a french press. Milk and stevia. I needed this post last week when I was wandering around a medical center while my wife was having a procedure and found myself stupefied in front of a Starbuck's menu. When it was my turn to order I panicked an...

Re: The Gospel is Spreading.

I think the reference is to this quote in the April General Conference: This is the commencement of the fulfillment of the great and marvelous work Nephi foresaw among both the Gentiles and the house of Israel. Nephi saw our time when the Saints of God would be upon all the face of the earth, but t...

Re: Giving Machines = reverse ATM

Any speculations about whether the church gets feedback about how much is contributed via the machines so they can add it to their humanitarian aid stats?

More thoughts on vanishing Lamanites

One of the assignments for a history class I'm just finishing was a PowerPoint presentation about the history of a local community. A Navajo student in the class talked about the Indian Placement Program, pros and cons. He touched briefly on some of the weird fruits like BYU's travelling performance...

Re: The Gospel is Spreading.

But don't forget the Elder Cook recently told us that God intended that rock cut of the mountain without hands to become a pebble. That's how we know it's true. For now anyway. If for some reason membership started growing again, say in Africa, then THAT'S how we'd know it's true.

Re: Giving Machines = reverse ATM

I think y'all are trying to look for warts with these giving machines. I fail to see this as a bad thing. Sure, people can give directly to these charities and causes, but people don't always do that. People are lazy and people are busy. I think this is a fantastic idea to make giving easier. Why s...

It makes me hope the rumors of 40% declines in tithing income for the church are true.
Maybe that's the best explanation for the sudden appearance of giving machines that are mentioned in another thread.

Re: Giving Machines = reverse ATM

Um, doesn't the church recognize that they are supposed to be the giving machine, and that they have convinced everyone that's what tithing and Fast Offerings are for.

Re: Who's up for a carpool to St. George Tuesday?

I totally wish I'd kept up on Bill Reel, and that I had come to NOM more often (I was intending to be here for the Halloween unveiling, but totally forgot about it). I would have definitely gone to the church to support Bill if I could have (and I would have met some of you in person, it looks like...

Re: A tithing victory?

She had me there, so our compromise, we pay on her half, 5%. That’s 5% too much in my opinion, but I am also committed to this marriage. So, hopefully we’ll be able to make progress on this in the future. We did something similar. I suggested that we each pay 5% to whatever charities our conscience...

Re: What do you all do for tithing settlement?

Now that I'm a full time student I just stay, "I have a negative income, so let's figure out how much the church owes me." Mrs. Hagoth now gives more money to help friends in need than she gives to the church and reports herself a full tithe payer.

Re: BOM Origins? John Bunyan's Pilgrims Progress and Holy War

Boy, LDS apologists calling someone else out for parallelism is really the pot calling the kettle black. I agree, however, that side-by-side comparisons with compressed text can be easy to criticize as manipulation of the text. The crowbar used to make such manipulations, however, is dwarved in comp...

There is a rumor about as special wing of the UofU psychiatric hospital that is kept ready for just such occasions. I'm not making this up, but it is just a rumor.
