  1. No support for this assumption. He probably was just telling himself. Interesting that Lois filed for divorce on July 5.
  2. Members of the Utah law enforcement community learned 17 years ago that he might be gay because they checked his computer over because of his daughter's abduction and found things that pointed to homosexual proclivities. Others learned about it through them from that time forward.
  3. So God set up a sexually asymmetric world, where men, on average, enjoy many advantages over women. Also, men, on average, are more selfish than women, so less interested in service than women. Because of some of the inevitable consequences of this real world asymmetry, some people reject God, for setting up and placing us in such an obviously biased world. What are the implications of those biological realities for the domain of church leadership?
  4. I knew of a GA in the 1980s who had a standard quad reduced and rebound for ease of use when traveling.
  5. I'd be interested to read Cowdery's account of the translation process. Can you supply some statements here?
  6. It looks like a Bickertonite Book of Mormon.
  7. 490 is now known to be inaccurate. The ESV, NIV, NRSV have it right at 77. Matthew 1:25a: HCSB has something similar but better by keeping know: but did not know her intimately until she gave birth to a son. Several newer versions keep know by itself. NIV goes with consummate marriage, NRSV with have marital relations.
  8. Not sure I follow you here. Isaiah I is pre-exilic, is it not?
  9. Here is some non–Latter-day Saint scholarship discussing evidence that Isaiah II has linguistic usage (the Qal Passive) that dates it with pre-exilic Isaiah I.
  10. And this 1984 BYU article looks like it's on the topic.
  11. See this thread for starters.
  12. Does Wayment have 70 × 7 or 77 times at Matt. 18:22? I hope the latter. How does Wayment translate Matt. 1:25a? An important and tricky one. I see that the NKJV has "kept her a virgin" in its notes (the literal Greek?), but kept the verb know: "did not know her". The JST additions are valuable, but besides that, most of the effort Wayment put in was probably already available in other prominent newer biblical versions.
  13. @clarkgoble, according to Skousen (1994:136-37), P was only 24 pages long in August 1829. Skousen (2001:33) concludes that Joseph and Martin probably numbered the 1828 dictation pages, because both O and P were numbered. Most of the 1830 preface is section 10 language, first set down in writing in April 1829. So Joseph wasn't coming up with brand new language for the preface in July or August 1829. He just needed to rework that earlier language, or perhaps the preface was a further revelation, an expansion of the earlier revelation.
  14. Where does Bradley suggest this? Simple calculations point to about 25 percent of the whole, not 50 percent.
  15. Maybe you didn't read pages 136 to 137 above. There Skousen plainly wrote in 1994 that the number 116 couldn't have come from the number of pages in P of the small plates section, because when 116 was first typeset for the preface in August 1829, P didn't even have 116 pages yet. The matching numbers are just a coincidence.
