  1. Matt 22 [11] And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: [12] And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. [ 13] Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. [14] For many are called, but few are chosen.

    So what happened to the rest of his body?

    Programming AI applications is outside my realm of expertise, but, apparently, you think you do know what you are talking about.

    I do not remember raising my hand in general conference sustaining you as a general authority, with the authority AND assignment to decide how to apply the scriptures to the operation of the church. Did I miss something? "Wherefore, I have appointed unto CV75, and this is CV75's business in the church of God*, to manage them and the concerns thereof, yea, the benefits thereof."

    If you had actually read the article, it mentioned possible application for AI

    Does a flower have ZERO nectar? Or does the bee realize there is too little left to take it all? Zero is a discrete number, not an analog state (very little). They did not test the latter concept.

    You cannot understand zero unless you know multiplication? Whatever...... I'm not going to argue with you.

    Thus, a concept of numbers including zero, not just "empty" as a static state. "Zero is a difficult concept to understand and a mathematical skill that doesn't come easily -- it takes children a few years to learn," Dyer said.

    Elsewhere I have suggested that matter -- atoms, dust -- has intelligence. Helaman 12 [7] O how great is the nothingness of the children of men; yea, even they are less than the dust of the earth. [8] For behold, the dust of the earth moveth hither and thither, to the dividing asunder, at the command of our great and everlasting God.

  11. I failed to see the word "doctrine" May I suggest that you look at this article regarding what constitutes doctrine from a First Presidency, 12 Apostles official, inspired, approved (but not canonized) source. https://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/approaching-mormon-doctrine This source DOES mention the word "doctrine" and basically says that every word that comes forth from an apostle is not considered doctrine but could simply be an opinion. It's clear we will just have to agree to disagree. I give you the last word.
  12. Nothing personal, but I really do not remember raising my hand to sustain you in General Conference.
  13. It indicates that the war was also waged in the "land northward", where Zelph lived. We do not have any of the records for the land northward and little is known about its history. Search for the Hill Cumorah
  14. "appeal to authority" , "everybody knows" logical fallacy. "When the prophet speaks, the thinking has been done" What is his source of this statement == a vision/revelation, the angel Moroni told him, he is the prophet and BOM geography is a doctrine of the church, OR was this just his assumption -- a personal opinion? Please document your answer from the Joseph Smith Papers. I hate to be the one to break to you, but BOM geography is an issue of fact, not doctrine.
