From the microscopic emergence of film-like deposits and oxygen release in the pre-Cambrian era to the Cambrian explosion where Mormonism was unleashed upon the world.

Utah Senate Race 2022

This November Sen Mike Lee, the Trump-endorsed candidate, will face off against Evan McMullin, of the Independent Mormon Party. The Democrats declined to nominate a candidate and decided to back McMullin as a much better alternative to the Trump endorsement. To give you an idea about Lee, his best friend in the Senate is Ted Cruz, but he is happy to carry a bucket for Trump anywhere on the grounds of the Versailles Palace. Anyway, all this confirms is that Utah is unlike anywhere else on Earth (but does share some similarities to Oblibish of the Kolob Federation).

Sacrificing Board Posts for the Greater Good

A post on the old MAD board once proved the Book of Mormon was true. Unfortunately, it and most other posts needed to be removed when Dr. Daniel Peterson was requested to testify in the Brian David Mitchell trial (Elizabeth Smart). It was feared that the defense lawyer would use the MAD posts corpus to impeach Dr. Peterson's testimony. No use searching, that proof of the truthfulness of the Book has been removed from the earth. However, Dr. Peterson's testimony at the trial did help establish that Mitchell was not an Old Testament prophet, which if left unchallenged may have swayed a Utah jury (It cannot be overemphasized how influential a person can be when claiming the mantle of a prophet and practicing plural marriage).

The suspect information at the MAD board needed to be sacrificed for the greater end so that Dr. Peterson could bear his witness. It was a fruitful Exhortation and Testimony Meeting. Mitchell was lucky he was not fitted with a noose and placed on a bucking tapir that day once Dr. Peterson finished with "In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen".

What would have impeached Dr. Peterson's testimony? Why Mormon apologetics, of course!

Eat Like An Egyptian

About 100 years ago archeologist Howard Carter was exploring the tomb of King Tut. Today I was watching Max Miller from Tasting History recreate a roast duck from that time.

This got me thinking about ancient Nephite recipes. Of course, we won't find the remains of such recipes from tombs, because no Nephite archeology exists, but was anything recorded in the Book of Mormon? Ancient bagels, lox, and cream cheese? Gefilte fish and matzo ball soup? Roaring fires, malt beer, ripe meat off the bone?

As church historian Richard Turley was preparing the seer stone for long-term storage, he rubbed some dust from the stone, and inadvertently activated its translation feature! It appears to be caught in a loop, repeating the same Book of Mormon verse over and over on its stony display. President Nelson has been unsuccessful in gaining access to its primitive OS. Still, the LDS church remains hopeful that this discovery will usher in a new dispensation of revelatory guidance for the entire world.
