Re: Nelson’s “don’t rehearse with other unbelievers” talk

Good thought IHAQ. I think what Nelson intended to communicate is a notion that unwillingness to have “more” faith makes one a lazy learner or a lax disciple. So no matter what you learn, no matter how awful or objectionable to you, Nelson’s Mormonism a faith hamster wheel. If you ever get off, boom...

Re: Latest Numbers from the Interpreter Foundation

fyi; Dr. Moore told me this story in person a couple years ago. So if he made it up, it wasn't just recently. If only RTM had done some basic research to create a plausible scenario for his flaming aircraft story. I was a huge Nibley fan as a Freshman at BYU, although I read my last Nibley book on ...

Re: Latest Numbers from the Interpreter Foundation

That’s right. I remember Nibley claimed he once met Hitler coming out (or going in) of a bathroom in Germany. Alright, I'll play. As an undergrad student (early 1990s) I met Hugh Nibley, in his office, entirely by accident, in the Harold B. Lee library. You see, I had gotten turned around after goi...

It may ultimately be that the secret to knowing the truth of Nelson’s flight that day is hidden from all lazy learners and lax disciples.

Re: How Do Near-Death Experiences Help the Mopologists?

Wow. So talking about NDEs as a sacred manifestation is just like talking about visions or the temple or the second anointing? That sure puts things in a new light.

Re: Fact Checking Nelson's "Doors Of Death" light aircraft near death experience

By the way, I looked up that one accident on Nov. 12, 1976, in Brigham City -- the same day that Nelson flew to St. George to offer an invocation.

2 days later, the Box Elder News in Brigham City featured this front page spread (Sunday, Nov. 14 1976):

Re: Nelson’s “don’t rehearse with other unbelievers” talk

Cinepro, the way he constructed the sentence you're right that lazy learner isn't necessarily all those who leave. And oddly, if we're hyper literal, it might not even be the majority or a large number, as he says "LL &LD...struggle to muster even a particle of faith". Dean, RMN said "Lazy learners...

Re: Fact Checking Nelson's "Doors Of Death" light aircraft near death experience

We searched our files and did not locate any aviation incidents reported in the state of Utah during November 1976. For future reference regarding aviation accident investigations, Huh. - Doc Right. The distinction is important. Their public database has all accidents, but not incidents. The incide...

Re: Nelson’s “don’t rehearse with other unbelievers” talk

Are you sure you're not affirming the consequent? Assuming those who "struggle to muster even a particle of faith" = "exMos", then he's saying "some lazy learners = those who have no faith/exMos". But it does not logically follow that "all of those those who have no faith/exMos = lazy learners." Hi...
