    Can Angels Eat?

    Unfortunately the physics for this assertion isn't quite settled. Don't get me wrong, I am a big proponent of causality. Still, reality continues to be a bit like gollum. https://cosmosmagazine.com/physics/causality-disappears-at-the-flick-of-a-switch

    Can Angels Eat?

    A related question: do resurrected bodies have vestigial body parts? While not one hair on my head will be lost, what about my coccyx?
  3. Denmark and others (Japan, etc.) are offering incentives. Caution, the public TV commercial below may offend some (I've removed the preview image). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrO3TfJc9Qw
  4. While I don't believe it, there are those that have speculated it could be the Holy Ghost.

    President Nelson in Bolivia

    I learned Cantonese on my mission. My senior year of undergraduate at BYU I took Spanish I just for the heck of it. Didn't go well. Partly because I was a lazy senior and partly because the two languages are so disparate. Fun fact, when learning a third language and one's mind is searching for a word it typically goes to the second language first (citation). Doesn't work that well for a Spanish-Cantonese combo. Being lazy didn't work very well either.

    The planets and the reckoning of time

    It is easy for us to adopt a contemporary way of thinking about Abraham's astronomy. It's probably not the right way to go and so the question may not be asking the right thing either. And I Saw the Stars – The Book of Abraham and Ancient Geocentric Astronomy

    Alcohol causes one in 20 deaths worldwide

    A bit of whimsy. Alcohol isn't just a human issue. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2018/10/04/drunk-birds-are-causing-havoc-in-a-minnesota-town-police-say-theyll-sober-up-soon/

    Women's Session

    Yes. Not even being the president of the church is a higher calling. No other success can compensate for failure in the home.

    No more MoTab

    Just because something happens “now” doesn't necessarily make it sudden. It may have taken the church membership (or the world) 170 years to be ready for the change.

    I was perplexed by the youtube channel and figured that https://www.youtube.com/user/TheTabernacleChoir was already taken so https://www.youtube.com/TheTabernacleChoiratTempleSquare had to be used instead. I would not be surprised if the Church offered to buy the youtube channel from the current owner.

    Alcohol causes one in 20 deaths worldwide

    I'm not advocating prohibition. I do think it a good idea in theory but am far from certain that our society would bear it. But the trope that prohibition did more harm than good is not entirely settled. You can find quite a few studies that argue either way. One thing that we do know pretty clearly is that prohibition was motivated at least in part by the fairly rampant abuse in families that was exacerbated by alcohol use. People didn't argue for it just for the heck of it. Certainly it wasn't voted for willy-nilly. After and during prohibition the sway of the demon of abuse on society was reduced and in that sense prohibition was a partial success.

    Mormon Women for Ethical Government

    You might find this website useful (if you don't know about it already): https://www.allsides.com/unbiased-balanced-news I quiet enjoyed and highly recommend this book: The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion

    To cast frivolous aspersions to another group because some dare have variant political opinions than one's own speaks to the very heart of what extreme partinsanship entails.
