  1. Why on earth would I want anyone to tell me how to think? That's completely foreign to me.
  2. Riiiiggghhhttt...it's all in my head when former fellow ward members look right at me in the grocery store and reverse course to avoid interacting with me. These threads wherein believers declare to former-believers what's "really" happening to them are such a joy.
  3. I was stating that you seemed to be implying it. Never mind. I'm really not interested in debating.
  4. There are many, many jokes to be made here...so many jokes...so many jokes that would get me banned.
  5. You didn't...you seemed to be tangentially criticizing your local leadership for not celebrating those who served in the military in a similar fashion to missionaries.
  6. I grew up in South Scottsdale/North Tempe and I recall seeing military service plaques next to our mission plaques. IMO, there are plenty of things in church culture, policy, doctrine, and practice to criticize, but I'm not sure this is one of them.
  7. @Amulek Good grief, man, is that data assembled in a 30 year-old copy of Lotus 1-2-3?!
  8. You are definitely willing to expand your faith more broadly than I was. Perhaps that helps explain why you're still in and I'm out.
  9. Well, I get the faith-based belief in your examples, especially since such things don't leave behind an evidentiary record other than testimony of witnesses (which is a pretty consistent element of faith-based assertions). When the scientific evidence world-wide is clearly against the Biblical narrative, that seems (to me) to be a completely different situation altogether. Even as a believer my beliefs had shifted to a more local flood idea than a world-wide one.
  10. Even though science has pretty much shot down the notion of a global flood?
  11. Wait...does that mean you are a Noah's Ark literalist?
  12. A copy of the ruling: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/21062391-huntsman-ruling
  13. Pretty much. They're the only ones who can actually hear the Holy Ghost...or something.
  14. Yeah...won't take long over there to get a pretty good feel for it. This thread alone should do it: https://www.ldsfreedomforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=62167
  15. I said "they are at risk," then I provided you information on licensing boards. I didn't say anyone had been brought before a board for it, yet. @Chumfilled in that blank.
  16. You want me to show you proof for something that could happen? Are you serious?
  17. You are reading things into my posts that simply aren't there. I'm not "set off" nor am I using any invective. I asked you a very straightforward question. You have dodged at every opportunity. And there's the confirmation bias I spoke of. You appear to be willing to accept any evidence which supports your favored conclusion, but you dismiss evidence which does not. That is the very reason I asked my very first question. Are you really asking me to pull disciplinary rules for 50 state medical boards? State medical boards are responsible for the oversight and discipline - https://journalofethics.ama-assn.org/article/role-state-medical-boards/2005-04 What you are talking about is off-label use of a prescription drug. It is not illegal, but it does have its risks. One of those risks, especially regarding use of a controversial treatment, is that the doctor will get hauled in front of a medical board to answer questions about their decision to prescribe the medicine for an off-label use. I've had to read through medical board investigations in connection with my job. I'm not just making things up. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a football game to watch.
  18. To their state medical licensing boards. If there are doctors prescribing it for Covid, despite the FDA's warning, they are at risk of losing their licenses.
  19. The number is derived from blood donations. There will be bias in the sample preventing generalization to the population.
  20. And they would need to defend that decision. The data simply do not exist to support that decision, at this point.
  21. Oh, my...do you know what a meta-analysis is? A meta-analysis combines the results of a number of other research papers into a single analysis for additional statistical review. The link you are providing is the very meta-analysis that was retracted. It was found to include improper data and was methodologically unsound. Your original anti-Nehor post that included those links had quotes criticizing another study for methodological problems and tried to make the case that @The Nehor had both been "lied to" and that there was significant evidence supporting the effectiveness in a proper (by implication) study. Based on that post, I asked you what experience you have with statistical sampling and research methodologies. I asked that question because I suspected you were cherry picking articles that supported the conclusions you wanted to be true without really understanding what was being said. So far, you've done nothing to relieve me of my suspicion.
  22. Because a medical doctor has an ethical obligation to not prescribe it if it is going to be misused. There is no approval, whatsoever, by the FDA for using Invermectin as a treatment for COVID-19. Not emergency approval, and certainly not full approval. https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/why-you-should-not-use-ivermectin-treat-or-prevent-covid-19
  23. Yes, I did. I also asked you a question to which your only response was to ask me questions, along with your links to data that have been repudiated and withdrawn. You would know that, had you actually read the links I provided to you.
