Re: Seminary Teacher Schools Church Historian!

It’s so bizarre to hear a grown man say “my life’s foundation is built on top of a serial bigamist, married to 14 year olds, who conned people into searching for buried treasure and burned down printing presses when anyone dared criticize him. All you have is doubt, what is your foundation?” You ca...

Re: Correcting the Record

How often does Dan criticize his comrades? I confess I don't know because I don't read his blog posts except when they're mentioned here. The only time I have ever seen him criticize a fellow apologist in public was he lashed out at Yahoo Bot once---because Yahoo Bot had spoken out against William ...

Empty Promise to Parents: Was Willard Richards reliable?

Sunday, August 13, 1843.—I went to the stand on Sunday morning, August 13, 1843, and preached on the death of Judge Higbee, a synopsis of which was reported by my clerk, Dr. Willard Richards . The Prophet’s Remarks at the Funeral of Judge Higbee. Brethren And Sisters, you will find these words in 2...

Re: Is DCP being slandered here?

Could I inquire as to the nature of the board's fixation with Dr. Peterson? Nine of the twenty-five threads on the first page are either about Peterson or are having a discussion about him. I just performed a fast scan of the threads. When it comes to Dr. Peterson, I'm sorry, but that's simply stra...

Re: Church 2022 growth rates by country

Yeah. I dated a woman who had been married to a guy involved in Amway, as well as the LDS church. She said the Amway conventions evoked more of "the spirit" per the LDS descriptions than any LDS meeting she'd ever attended. So there is the third option: the church could become a MLM. Oh, wait, it so...

Re: The rock in the hat

We're debating about wherther or not a rock in a hat is just as legit as having gold plates in creating the B of M when we're talking about a highly iniquitous con-man with 42+ instances of criminal misconduct in a period of 24 years who created an illegal bank and currency and caused most of his r...

Re: The rock in the hat

Rock in the hat? I do not know why the translation story would be more believable if he stared at the plates he could not read and said words.I do not know why those stone spectacles would be more appropriate. It seems to me that if you believe the Book of Mormon story at all the stone in the hat f...

Re: The rock in the hat

What’s your problem? Ignorance? You never sat down on your butt and studied history because you want to be spoon fed? The Church was more concerned about whether you touched yourself or a girl than that you knew anything about the Church, its history and its doctrine that you'd be "teaching" people...

Re: Boyd K. Packard’s little factory speech

The OP seems to be more about the fact that the missionary got a pass on decking his missionary companion, which could have been potentially life threatening. We know more today than we did back then about head injuries, and now have CT scans that may not have been around back then. I don’t know of...
