Re: Woman riles up Sarasota Springs Priesthood

A cop abusing someone. In other news, the Sun rose in the East this morning. I don't see how people still defend police after so many such examples.

Re: Non-Christian checklist

False gods, Mormonism (naturally), and Hare Krishna.

Also, it's interesting that "Islam" and "Black Muslim" are separate categories.

Re: Consciousness

Thinking and consciousness are emergent properties of peculiar arrangements of unthinking, unconscious matter, energized. The AI discourse of late has got me reflecting on the "Chinese room" thought experiment, which was an answer to the Turing test. A man, who himself knows no Chinese, sits in a ro...

Re: The Ward Weirdo and other stereotypes?

It's weird that they're all anticommunist, because the utopian condition of the Lehites as described in 4 Nephi is almost exactly like Marx' ideal of the stateless, classless, moneyless society where property is held in common and everyone contributes according to his ability and receives according ...

Re: Is there a single unique truth claim of Mormonism that holds up?

Maybe this isn't very relatable to the question but take a look at the claim that Nephi made a high quality bow out of steel. Think about what it would take to do that: Nephi would have to mine the ore. Make a large smelter. After the ore was smelted he would have to have a blast furnace. Then he w...

She got it right eventually. That is what is important to me. It was otherwise quite pleasant.

Re: How do you label yourself regarding your belief?

I am ardently an atheist. I don't believe in any gods, ghosts, or goblins. The Force is a neat story, but it has no actually existent analogue. In sum, I don't believe in anything magic or spiritual. And if the right climate arises, I will rail against them. Otherwise, I don't think about it too muc...

I got to spend a few hours with family. It was pleasant. My grandmother only misgendered me a couple of times.

They will make the stupidest statements in the uttermost solemnity. It makes them feel powerful. In this way, they are very like Mormons.

Re: Keeping up with Trump

Imagine thinking Trump is humble. He's the most vainglorious president I've ever seen. I'm young, admittedly, but still. In his NFT ad, he called himself the greatest president ever, better than Lincoln. Just how humble is that? Re the "bill of attainder" argument: If the orange man is found to lega...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

I think what you guys hate about Trump is something that many of us love about him. Where you see someone who is narcissistic we see someone who can take himself lightly. He can have fun with the attention that he gets and still use it to his advantage. His end goal is his brand. It's not even so m...

A major announcement of Grift by Trump on Truth Social: $100 dollar Trump cards!!! Think of that when one of the conservative talking heads attack anything else. Their values are based on a house of Trump Cards. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FkCHgqDXoAEOUx-?format=jpg&name=small You shall worship me ...

Re: Reading and listening critically

This reminds me of the self-serving claim of the Brethren speaking for God. Why do Latter-day Saints lack the discernment to see the men standing behind the curtain claiming to be the great and powerful Oz? Their critical thinking faculties either are undeveloped or have been circumvented. The hier...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

The Repblican Senate declined to try the impeachments. It's not that he's so clean; he's the most corrupt president in living memory. Nixon was a meek and mild lamb compared to Trump. I watched the trials. Complete rubbish. Just because the judge throws the case out for lack of a crime doesn't make...
