Re: Another blow to John Gee

Man, Dan Peterson has now entered the fray to support his buddy John Gee and his battle with secular heathens: https://www.patheos.com/blogs/danpeterson/2020/09/shut-up-he-explained.html Reading the comments, it's just hilarious - there's a troll that keeps asking Dan if he is "going to follow the ...

Re: Polynesians with native american DNA article

It doesn’t change the fact that we don’t have Jewish DNA. What we do know is the kumara is not native to New Zealand. It is native to South America, specifically Peru.iy also isn’t uniform as Asian genetic markers have also been found in Polynesian DNA. Linguistically and culturally, there are smal...

Has a transcript of one of the early 2a's.
Having the woman wash the man's feet is so LDS. Also, I wonder if one of the 2nd anointed ever cursed someone and it worked? It reminds me of an Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtTBLMqAPo0

Re: Church wants more Christ-centered artwork in buildings

http://www.freakingnews.com/pictures/111000/Jesus-Christ-with-a-Machine-Gun-111401.jpg I think this better encapsulates the true Jesus right before he wiped out all the wicked in 3 Nephi 8-9. Maybe put the following scripture under the above to quietly remind the members to pay their tithes and alw...

Re: And Jesus Smiled...

I think Jesus never smiled because he was a tortured soul what with having to face his impending death that was decreed from the beginning, for some reason. I'm sure he had a lot of wtf moments and probably screamed out to his God daddy the closer the doom and suffering approached. What the hell Dad...

Re: Is The ANY record of Prophecy About Corona?

The Lord isn't worried about such trivial things as covid-19. Death comes to us all. He is more concerned with scheduling changes and quorum reshuffling and so He inspires His trusted servant Rusty's pen to write new and inventive ways to conduct meetings, and run the organization, after doing the h...

Re: A one-liner that captures your disaffection

For me it's "leave me alone." I get harassed by well-meaning members and family that want to reclaim the "lost." Or how about "I'm not lost, you are."

Re: If I could ask them one question . . . Come Follow Me, Lesson 18

Ya know, I just gotta say that I think it *would* make a difference if Christ was crucified on the Golden Arches. That would mean it happened during my life time. Those Golden Arches didn’t exist when I was born, so there would be a recent historical record, and maybe we could check out a few detai...

Re: When was the BOM translation finished?

They could have been putting the thing together up and until it was published in March, 1830. I've never found anything that shows there weren't any changes after the rock and hat show ended. The original manuscript is all but destroyed, having been buried in the Nauvoo Temple corner stone. Joseph S...

Re: How do we bridge the epistemological divide of “I know”?

Maybe confusion or ignorance (although i wouldn't say that to their face. Or arrogance. I don't mean that in a negative way about your dad or anyone else who is caught up in it. It's the institutional arrogance that is built into your indoctrination from the moment you enter the church nursery. It ...

Re: The Odyssey of Thomas Stuart Ferguson by Stan Larson

Well, the church with its billions isn't doing much digging in central america and still hasn't looked for the stone box on the N.Y. hill cumorah that supposedly contained the plates. They realize that absence of evidence equals evidence of absence with each failed dig and the fund suffers too.

Re: LDS Inc. Recieved Government Assistance

You guys are right, hypocrisy is nothing new to the church, and it is totally par for the course, totally expected. What gets me is that the entire justification the church gave for the 100 billion fund, was a rainy day fund. Well now its a rainy day, small businesses are going under, some in part ...

Re: What will church look like...after Covid-19

Some may like not having to go to church and will continue to stay away once the restrictions are done. Given my own experience, the more one stays away from boring church, the more one realizes there are so many other worthwhile activities to do on a sunday, like, for example, sleeping in or shoppi...

Re: How do we bridge the epistemological divide of “I know”?

I think it will be hard to bridge the "I know" divide with a big percentage of TBM's. "I know" is a badge of honor, a sign of status that doesn't ever have to be earned, really. It just has to be grabbed and then one's credibility inside the tribe immediately goes up. After one claims "I know," one ...

Re: If I could ask them one question . . . Come Follow Me, Lesson 16

For one thing, we have to be careful to distinguish between the Gift of the Holy Ghost and the Light of Christ. Everyone has the Light of Christ, but the prophets have told us that its main purpose is to provide just enough course correction in peoples' lives to eventually lead them into the Oneand...

Re: Deseret News Defends the Crappy 2020 GC

I guess I can't blame LDS, Inc. for wanting to conserve their coin. It is what their temple building cash/tithing model is all about. Build or merely announce and the coffers will rise. They are focused on the goal and cannot be distracted by pandemics or the hunger of third world peasants. Tithing ...
