      Contact Us Broken   09/27/2016

      Users, It has come to our attention that the contact us feature on the site is broken.  Please do not use this feature to contact board admins.  Please go through normal channels.  If you are ignored there then assume your request was denied. Also if you try to email us that email address is pretty much ignored.  Also don't contact us to complain, ask for favors, donations, or any other thing that you may think would annoy us.  Nemesis

  1. Is it possible that some others may have made it though? Sure, no one else built a massive ark, stocked with supplies, but conceivably there could've been people with boats, perhaps even fishermen- that if, they gathered enough gear. maybe could've fished their way through the year. <shrug>
  2. Something I did not know until know: As I was reading up on the ancient accounts of Noah and the Ark for the other Noah's Ark thread in the News forum regarding the newly deciphered Mesopotamian clay tablet about Ark construction found here... http://www.mormondialogue.org/topic/62671-noahs-ark-new-details-on-mesopotamian-clay-tablet/ ...I came across the interesting tidbit that, according to Rabbinical literature, Noah illuminated the Ark with precious stones 'bright as the sun at noonday'. The parallel with the Jaredite account is obvious. It is mentioned in a general wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noah%27s_ark#Rabbinic_Judaism And following the footnotes led me here: So how likely could Joseph Smith have known this detail via his own research?
