  1. You sure about that? I’m certain there were some very fine universities available that could have really expanded their first century understandings of the world, drawing upon the best available expertise. It could have been a wonderful opportunity versus the small effect and opportunity cost of following around a lowly carpenter’s son.
  2. Was there today. It was horrible.
  3. I don’t believe he meant that at all. If we pretended, for a moment, that he was speaking to the women and presumably said to them not to be the reason their husbands didn’t keep the law of chastity, we’d recognize how preposterous that is. Him suggesting that to the men would be equally preposterous.
  4. This doesn’t appear to be produced by the church.
  5. A kid in my ward opened his call and it stated he’d be called as an apostle, and that him and his companion would be called for a period of 6 days, with their mission being split between Jerusalem and the spirit world. He reports to the MTC next week.
  6. Do you have any specifics in mind? The role of the two is very different, as are the goals.
  7. I read that more to mean if The Book of Mormon wasn’t what it claims to be. So if there never was a group of people leaving Jerusalem, there were never Nephites or Lamanites, a resurrected Christ never actually appeared to an ancient civilization, there never was a Moroni who would later be claimed as the angel who helped bring forth the record, and there were never any plates that many people testified of. I do find that view rather problematic to still believing in any kind of truth claims about the church.
  8. And you considered Bob Bennett anonymizing himself with something like “Deep Throat”?

    I think this place has gotten way more tolerant of political discussion. Should have seen it 12-13 years ago, where any potential whiff of a possibility that a breath of political mention could come up got a thread locked. Never really understood that because it’s not like religion, life, and politics can all be neatly compartmentalized.
  10. If the account of the brother of Jared is to be believed. Ether 3:16 Behold, this body, which ye now behold, is the body of my spirit; and man have I created after the body of my spirit; and even as I appear unto thee to be in the spirit will I appear unto my people in the flesh.
  11. I don’t believe that all men are so concrete or elementary in their understanding of God and His commandments. I can’t speak to the proportions, or to anyone’s experiences, nor does it answer the question of what a single windowed woman is to do in those circumstances, but the question is predicated on the belief that all men do or should have that rigid (poor) of an understanding of the gospel, which I believe may not be uncommon but is not universal.
  12. I think it’s a unique enough case that it’d be worth contacting someone in Salt Lake about and being persistent. If you don’t mind me asking, what were the circumstances?
  13. I find this fairly interesting. Not necessarily the rendition, but the fact that this temple was announced three months ago and now there’s already a rendition and they will start construction this year. With the exception of the 10,700 square foot design, has there ever been a temple announced with such a quick rendering and construction plan? Within the past 20 years, you’re waiting at least two years for a rendering, and typically more.
