Re: Does DCP want a discussion?

So, if the Mormons merely dislike the substance, it magically ceases to be substance? I would like to be pointed in the direction of any commenter on Sic et Non who consistently posts more and/or better substance than gemli. I 2nd this motion. However, they would just then say we put all our substa...

Does DCP want a discussion?

Over at the comments section of SeN: gemli, why don't you try saying something new, please? Well, if the old stuff hasn't yet made my point, I'm not sure new stuff would do any better. Sigh... You might be surprised at the way actual substance can affect a conversation. How does that substance affec...

Re: "Is there a priesthood holder on board?"

Not much anymore. Now that they are apostolically hinted to in NOT having the faith to be healed, what's the point? Priesthood is merely a place holder, a badge for something or other to elevate those who hold it into thinking Elohimhood is right around the corner for them. In the meantime, "1, 2, ...

John Larsen leaves Mormonism (again)

https://youtu.be/EKhV8wKQfug Mormon Expression was an invaluable resource in my faith transition, and I can’t thank John enough for validating the experience of dealing with being inside such an insane religion. It made dealing with Mormons at church every week bearable, knowing I wasn’t suffering a...

Re: Science is wrong sometimes, therefore anything is possible

I think this is at least the third time Dan has refused to engage with criticism of his hastily posted evidences for ESP. This constant referral to books is amusing. Is that really how we uncover the underbelly of the supernatural? Really? The only way I can penetrate the veil of secrecy is to read...

Re: Science is wrong sometimes, therefore anything is possible

Amid all of the eye-rolling and guffawing that have ensued here and (mostly) elsewhere over my recent ruminations[sic] about the possible reality of "extraordinary knowing," not a single mocker or critic has, so far as I'm aware, so much as glanced in the direction of the books that I've cited. axe...

Re: Why was the Book of Abraham written in Egyptian and not in Greek?

we know that Joseph was interested in languages. He studied Greek, Hebrew, and German in a secular manner. Therefore, we can easily believe that he attempted to translate the Kinderhook plates without assuming prophetic powers, which powers consequently remain credible. https://www.fairlatterdaysai...

Re: Why was the Book of Abraham written in Egyptian and not in Greek?

The church claims that the document could have been copied in the 2nd Century BC, since Abraham existed many hundreds of years earlier (though unbiased scholars doubt he existed at all.) This doesn’t fit in with Joseph’s prophetic claim that the scrolls themselves were written by Abraham’s own hand ...

Re: Mopologetics and the Concept of “Sheeple”

Dan: It has been an exceptionally beautiful evening, with a nice sunset followed by moonlight on a calm sea, but, whatever the current status of the person who was taken off the boat a few hours ago, there has been considerable pain and sadness aboard the Ovation of the Seas today. Dan, as you appr...
