Re: Noah and the Flood

A TBM friend of mine saw all of these problems and came to the conclusion that it only had to rain really hard for a short period during those 40 days, just enough to cover all of the mountains with 1/4 inch of water. Baptism requires total submersion, but there is no minimum depth specification. T...

Re: The Great Apostasy didn’t really happen according to new Maxwell Institute book.

Well yeah, but: Related to the original topic of this post... If the "Great Apostasy" never happened, what is there to 'restore'? The thing that's left to restore is the members' poor understanding of what has been taught specifically by leadership for the past hundred years. So even though it's be...

Re: Mormons are able to gaslight themselves

Is "The Shelf" analogy a form of gaslighting oneself? Young Fluffy: "Tight-like-unto-a-dish Jaredite submarines??? Yeah, that couldn't have happened. Well... With god, all things are possible! Magick!" Young Fluffy then puts the "that couldn't have happened" thought on "The Shelf" and attempts to no...

Re: Why Do I Still Feel the Spirit? (when I don't really believe)

It's always fun to mention Iron Maiden because any high-demand religionist "knows" that a gaggle of retirement-age English Blokes with guitars and a PA system are EVIL! This just in: hidden cameras in the Holy of Holies reveal that the HG looks like this: https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/...

Re: Can there be an Alma?

It would be very interesting to see someone with a "checkered past" actually ascend in to the ranks of MORmON royalty. As mentioned, it's highly unlikely. They have plenty of semi-celebrities to fawn over who have "Alma" stories: The tattooed MORmON and Tom Christofferson spring to mind for me, and ...

"Black or white magic" What's the difference? The color of the magician's hat? ;) White magic is the “good” kind and black magic is the “bad” kind. “Bad” magic is like summoning demons and the “good” kind is like sending Dorthy back to Kansas. “Bad” is done by witches with green faces and “good is ...

Re: Thoughts on priesthood blessings and feeling the spirit meaning the church is true

One of the most powerful spiritual experiences of my life told me to marry my now ex-wife. It's obvious how that turned out. Sometimes those hormone rushes lead to good things, and sometimes they lead to bad things. I think they tend to lead to good more often just because almost any decision usual...
