  1. I'm curious as to how this works. How is "Mountain West Mormon Pioneers" a genetic thing? Can anyone weigh in? There must be some kind of (incomplete) DNA database of descendants of prominent early Mormon Pioneer families: Especially the polygamist men who had many offspring. I would imagine descendants of Orson Pratt, Heber Kimball, Brigham Young etc. would be fairly easy to identify and classify as descendants of “Mountain west Mormon pioneers“.
  2. That isn’t what they based the date on. That information is what caused them to look closer. The bones were radiocarbon dated and showed that the horse died sometime after the 1680s. Analysis of the teeth indicated that the horse ate local plants and drank local water. The healed injuries suggested the horse was kept alive and cared for (by humans) and they guess the purpose may have been to breed her.
  3. It’s so much more practical ( and modest) on a windy day.
  4. My prediction: The translation of the entire Pocatello 3rd Ward.
  5. His reasoning is mystifying to me. Do I stop labeling myself as a grandma because I’m not only a grandma? Stop calling myself an anthropologist because that doesn’t define everything that I am? A sister, a mother, an LDS woman? It’s a weird argument.
  6. My thought: Once this became her livelihood, she risks too much to admit she was wrong.
  7. It sounds vaguely familiar to me. I remember being taught st some point that free agency should not be confused with free will. There was some complex explanation. I never paid much attention to it because I always tend to go with the simplest interpretation or the one that makes the most sense to me.
  8. Extreme mental illness or fraud? Both? I don’t understand how she still has a following.
  9. Most gay people I know don’t want to be straight.
  10. I’ve heard that too. I imagine in President Kimball’s situation though, he probably heard a lot of personal stories from people he counseled who blamed their unhappiness on sexual incompatibility.
  11. I’m convinced that it is biological (although there also seems to be a social benefit to kids these days to experiment with homosexuality and it often leads to their confusion). But I agree with you that same-sex attraction likely originates from hormones in utero and not through genetics or epigenetics.
  12. Okay I'll play. Abraham 1 says nothing about Sub Saharan Africans. It implies that Egyptians (a group of North Africans/Mediterranean people) descended from Canaan. Egyptians aren't banned from the priesthood are they? Moses 7 says nothing about Sub Saharan Africans. Enoch said that the people of the land of Canaan (Middle East) had a blackness come upon them as a result of the heat. Genesis 9 says that Canaan was cursed to be a servant (nothing about Sub Saharan Africa or priesthood or anything specific about the type or duration of the servitude) Genesis 10 says nothing a
  13. For me it’s the only thing that works. I tend to be a hog and it’s really easy for me to eat mindlessly if I’m not careful so I input everything that goes in my mouth to my app. The exception is free foods. I looked up weight watchers list of foods that you don’t have to keep track of and use those if I’m hungry. Like green beans for example. I don’t worry about the calories from those type of foods. I think the starvation mode you mentioned really only kicks in if you drastically reduce your calories to an unhealthy level. For me, 1200 to 1300 cal is really perfect for slowish weight loss
  14. I used to be in great shape but the lockdown last year was very hard on me emotionally and DH and I both got a little lazy and way too “bodacious”. We’re both on track now. We put our fitbits back on and are restricting our calories. He likes to do low carb but I get bored with that so I just set my intake to 1200 or 1300 cal a day. I take my dad and my dog for a walk twice a day and now I’ve added a third faster, longer walk by myself about mid day and this way it’s easy to get my 10,000 steps. I always try to get outside even if the weather is lousy. It just makes me feel better all around.
