First presidency was watching in anticipation hoping they wouldn't pull out documents suggesting Joseph made it all up.

It would have been funny if they opened it up and pulled out the April 1892 issue of “Playboy” put there by a Deacon.

The ironic part is the time capsule was placed with a large gathering of 30,000 members commemorating the completion of the temple and a great moment in mormon history.

They never expected the capsule would be opened by a group of few wearing a mask and socially distant. That captures the sentiment of the moment and the decline in today’s church environment.

It looks like concrete was a bad choice for the time capsule. A lot of the material was greatly damaged. Too bad. :?

You wanna talk about decline? There are women in those photos, in the same room as cRusty and his side-kick henchmen, wearing pants!

The face-covering thing is a bit of a shock, but his highness allowing women to wear pants in his presence? Well, I never!!!

:lol:
Okay so when I read the part about the mosey they put in the time capsule, all I could think of was George Bluth, "There's always money in the Banana Stand." The ghost of BY appeared to GBH and he's like, "there's always money in the temple." :lol:

That's one of the first things I noticed also- women in the room wearing pants. Social norms change very slowly in the church, but that is something that the first presidency cannot escape in Mormon life- more mixed groups with women wearing up to date clothing. - Wndr.

Was there a white salamander in there?

If it had been preserved better they probably would have claimed a "miracle".

This reminds me of the time on my mission when the mission president had to correct the false notion being taught by the missionaries that the gold plates were preserved for so long because they were metal plates, but really the book of mormon says the preservation was a miracle of the Lord's doing rather than material durability. I guess we were trying to use logic in our young brains instead of the correct magical explanation.

They tried to open the capsule every year on September 22 for the last several years but the salamander blocked every attempt. The quake must have killed the little guy.

Did they HAVE to open it or could they have just put it back once Moroni’s trumpet was glued back in place and they put him back atop Oz tower? To me it speaks to Rusty’s arrogance and self-importance that HE should be the HAIC (head a$$hole in charge) when the time capsule should be opened.
The church has engineered your eternal family into a commodity that can be purchased with an annual fee. The fact that full tithing payment is a requirement for saving ordinances is the biggest red flag imaginable. Hagoth

They probably had no idea it was full of stuff until the quake dropped Moroni’s trumpet which forced an inspection. Upon inspection they found cracks in the base and saw some shiny coins.

Seriously. Why wait for the reconstruction project to open it? Considering they like celebrations, you would have thought 125 years later was a nice round number.
