  1. The Demise of Scouting

    Our past Home Teacher brought his Laural aged daughter 3 or 4 times when his partner ended up having to work late at the last minute. We enjoyed having her along and she enjoyed our new puppy (when our puppy was new)
  2. To me the Zelph story is proof that Joseph had a good sense of humor.
  3. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    That sentence is very poorly stated. The 12 year old deacon's quorum president does NOT hold the same keys as the Prophet, the 12 year old deacon's quorum president holds the keys he needs to preside over his quorum. I know what you meant but some of our non-LDS friends may not.
  4. Your article does not say its a myth.
  5. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    When was Donald W Parry made Prophet? Also from LDS.org: Not every statement made by a Church leader, past or present, necessarily constitutes doctrine. A single statement made by a single leader on a single occasion often represents a personal, though well-considered, opinion, but is not meant to be officially binding for the whole Church. https://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/approaching-mormon-doctrine
  6. What about the 2004 Red Sox? that wasn't big enough?
  7. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    Yes but not with a felt board (my wife teaches primary)
  8. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    A tsunami caused by a large meteor or comet strike (or even a large enough earthquake) could affect the coastal areas of all continents. A large enough ice shelf breaking off of Antarctica would do it also.
  9. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    Yes, its wrong. if you sail on a cruise ship, once you're out of sight of land, it appears there is no land. Now add that fact to the fact that Noah had never see that the Earth is a globe and never had satellites or weather radar and keep in mind that this account was written much much later from oral accounts. Its obvious something happened, too many cultures have a flood myth, but there is zero geological or zoological evidence of a worldwide flood that wiped everything and everybody out. I don't turn my brain off when I walk into Church.
  10. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    You cannot use something as proof of itself. You're not LDS are you?
  11. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    Y'all probably don't want to hear my thoughts about the Book of Abraham and the Book of Moses.
  12. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    Read my above answer on scriptural inerrancy.
  13. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    Funny as we don't believe in scriptural inerrancy or that God doesn't let mankind make mistakes or corrupt the Bible. Thats a Protestant Evangelical belief NOT an LDS belief
  14. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    I don't believe it as given -- ie a world-wide flood that killed everyone. or that Noah saved a pair of every animal on the planet. I believe there was a large but localized flood, or perhaps a tsunami that flooded a large region. You could explain the 40 days of rain and the flood by a meteor or comet strike in the ocean throwing up enormous amounts of water in the air which would have to come down as rain along with a tsunami sweeping the ark out to sea. To a primitive people without modern satellite and weather radar, I'm sure it appeared like the entire world was under water.
  15. Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    From everything I have read on him: To me, Ron White is a con man, he's made a lot of money "finding Noah's Ark" over the last 30 years without ever going up the mountain.
