Re: Unwritten Order of Santa

Santa doesn't want us to talk about her because we have so much respect and don't want her name used in vain.

Re: Long Island Medium & Joseph Smith

"...speaks to the desperation and anxiety..." I don't think of Joseph Smith as a cold reader, but he definitely had a gift for understanding what kinds of things hopeful seekers wanted to hear, and then making it happen. When Kirtland members saw Chandler's papyri they REALLY wanted to use it as pro...

Re: Who's the Lazy Learner?

Is it easier to leave as a normal member or a higher authority where your paycheck, ego, and livelihood are all directly tied. And imagine the emotional devastation and loss of status and benefits, both tangible and intangible to your children, grandchildren, in-laws and their offspring, aunts, unc...

Who's the Lazy Learner?

Consider 2 kinds of learners: L1 is a devout lifelong member of a church who has always been obedient and faithful. For most of her life she only read church-approved materials and was often called upon to teach them because of her broad knowledge and faith-affirming insights. Because she is so exci...

Re: Snufferism is better

Yes, reminded me of an Alan Watts talk on Hinduism. People search for old documents, like the dead sea scrolls. The oldest religious texts and traditions were onto something :) And that something, more often than not, included the use of mind-altering substances. From the most ancient written scrip...

Re: Dehlin Alternate Reality

I think NOMs exist, but it certainly depends on each worldview. The simple fact that we are posting on the message board he says no longer exists suggests either he is wrong or we are figments of imagination. NOMs are like LDS prophets. They exist but they're nothing like what everybody says they a...

Re: Tales of Tithing Settlement

Hey, the Intergalactic Spaceship Nauvoo is not going to build itself. You will be paving the way for Missionaries in Space. Belters will just own that ship someday anyway. I think that will be a backdoor deal by TSCCorp. Then the top brass can collect the insurance and not have to drain anymore of ...

Tales of Tithing Settlement

Are you doing it this year? Mrs. Hagoth signs us up and I attend to report yet again that I don't pay anything. I think both of our eyes popped a little bit when he said he's not worried about either of us drifting away or anything. Huh? I haven't regularly attended meetings for years and I quit my ...

Re: Snufferism is better

Isn't Snuffer one of those folks who "believes" that Joseph never practiced polygamy? I think so. I became quite a bit more disillusioned with Snuffer after I listened to the rest of the interview. He has difficulty sounding as openminded when he has to answer sticky questions. He mentioned that he...

Re: Dehlin Alternate Reality

Usually when I hear someone talking about NOMs they use it as a derogatory term for either "liberal Mormons" who are trying to steer the church away from the political Right, or people who have maintained just enough belief to remain in the church and continue to be somehow spiritually and emotional...

Re: Snufferism is better

Plus anyone framing such a worldview in terms of Jesus Christ and Joseph Smith being somehow interconnected in a symbiotic way has failed to recognize or assess Joseph's true standing in the lineup of men actually called of God to speak His words. Doesn't Snuffer then become a Joseph Smith derivati...

Snufferism is better

I'm listening to Denver Snuffer on Mormonism live and enjoying a lot of what he has to say. I get a sense of sincerity that I don't get from ANY of the COB guys, that Snuffer has actually had some sort of mystical experience. I say that because he is saying things that fit the pattern of people who ...
