Re: Impressive new evidence for the Book of Abraham

In Facsimile 2, we all know that Fig. 7 represents God sitting upon his throne, which depicts God with an erect penis. Now, a non-Mormon scholar is arguing that "YHWH’s penis plays a predominant role throughout the Old Testament". https://www.joeledmundanderson.com/francesca-stavrakopoulous-god-an-...

Re: Eclipse

canpakes, I am uncertain, who is this Dan? the Daniel Peterson we know is spelled on not en. As I have Peterson's in my family I notice that little detail. I am puzzled even more by the O'Reilly reference. I suppose you mean the fellow who used to be on fox. I have not fallowed fox or him in the ye...

Re: Eclipse

I feel this way about potentially missing a 49er Super Bowl Championship, should one happen after I'm gone. Silly Dan. He’ll be able to make his own world, and outfit it with as many precisely-sized moons as he desires to ensure as many eclipse-viewing opportunities as he’d like. (for extra fun, pl...

Re: Traveling Back in Time

Religious nuts: You don't get any credit for making crap up and then using your BS as an authority for stupid legislation. Go ahead and prove that "life begins at conception" demonstrating how dead sperm and a dead egg suddenly come to life when merged. I'd like to know how dead sperm can swim. I'd...

Re: Doubt & Questioning a Contradiction to Faith?

I go back and forth on this. On the one hand, I think all religions can benefit from a moderating trend. Catholics aren’t burning heretics anymore. Muslims, by and large, aren’t massacring infidels. Mormons should some day stop excommunicating doubters and critics. But DCP often pushes back on this...

Re: Mormons arguing that “Mormon” is as derogatory as the N-word

I'm adding this to the pile of monstrous behaviors exhibited by Brigham Young. He may have accomplished things, but in my opinion, he was not 'decent,' relatively or otherwise. Just imagine, what different outcomes would his accomplishments have had, had he actually been a more decent human being? ...

Re: Doubt & Questioning a Contradiction to Faith?

This AI sounds like a well oiled assemblage of common observations gleaned from a large bunch of sources. I may not really want to know how many opinions were reviewed to mulch into this one summary. I realize a very large part of any humans’ statements about subjects of interest are like that. Howe...

Re: Brigham Young doesn’t deserve his online criticism

I agree with Dan. Why isn’t anyone talking about Brigham’s love of the arts? “If I were placed on a cannibal island and given a task of civilizing its people,” Brigham is said to have remarked, “I should straightway build a theatre.” How about Brigham’s love of magical baking? I suppose you are rea...

Re: Eclipse

I am glad people enjoyed seeing the eclipse yesterday. I live far enough to the northwest that only about a third of the sun got covered. I got out my eclipse glasses to check as it went along and checked a bit of the tv coverage of people seeing totality. It brought back memories which I enjoyed. I...

Re: Elder Holland may not be Secondly Anointed?

I think criticism is a good thing. Don't get me wrong. That said, the amount of unanswered criticism that occurs here practically invalidates the whole board. Some people just dismiss this place because it contains almost nothing but criticism. Some of the criticism here goes too far. I also think ...
