Breaking Godwin's law....he petted a dog and the trains arrived on time. Two different leaders granted solace because humanity creeped through their facade.

Unfortunately DCP's blog does not keep comments after two years. I understand that particular post had some interesting exchanges in the now inaccessible comment section.

Re: Prophets can't explain the Book of Mormon, they ask the experts to, scholars!

They are experts at attempts to make the prophets sound accurate, which is virtually impossible. They have to change the meanings of words to do so, and it obviously flops. Their recontexting a miscontexted quote in scriptures by the prophets and books don't help either. What they are not experts i...

If I recall, her story had some untruths and omissions in it.

Kind of similar story with a certain other woman…

Re: Gemli explains...

I believe things that are not implied by any incontrovertible evidence, that's true, but I don't think I believe anything that is inconsistent with any incontrovertible evidence. This is where theists plant their flag. I believe because I believe but there are zero methodologies that can dispute me...
