  1. Would it be safe to say that by mid March next year we will be seeing the pi variant ? Around here we have discovered an extra reason to wear a mask. The smoke from the forest fires. It makes for a very orange moon.
  2. Sad to see the name of J Reuben Clark attached to this.... ahh... I'll refrain !
  3. In SLC there may be a company that will provide a half dozen Samoan gentlemen for just such occasions. 😎
  4. John 11: 35 Jesus wept . Says a great deal in such a small space.
  5. Welcome to the world of GPS . 😁 10 Times GPS Failed With Terrible Consequences - Listverse
  6. This outlines what I said and at the end says something about what Fair Dinkum said. Is Most Published Research Wrong? - YouTube
  7. If one has left faith in Christ behind , then one swings on the pendulum to empirical evidence and towards scientism. Scientists become one's prophets and one, in my opinion, has built beliefs on shifting sands. Review the " beliefs " of science over the last 200 years and you will see massive adjustments. But, you say, science is self correcting .Sometimes yes, but more often than not it has to be dragged kicking and screaming towards new ideas. Lets take the recent finding of soft tissue in dinosaur bones. The scientific community dog piled on the discoverers with vitriol. Can't be that soft tissue would survive for 65 million years. They fought it because it implied that the bones were considerably younger than ' everyone ' knew. Only after many more examples were found did the scientific folks admit it was true that there was soft tissue. Guess what conclusion they stuck with. Yup, soft tissue CAN survive 65 million years. Sure Fred, if you say so. We don't want to admit it but scientists are fallible humans too. They are subject to temptations like greed, professional jealousy, fudging the data etc.
  8. Assertions do not necessarily equate to truth. That sword cuts both ways.
  9. tell me what you see. This canyon, 100s of km long and under 1000+m of ocean was , of course, carved by seasonal rains over millions of years. Either that , or there was a lot of water runoff very quickly. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&thid=AMMS_354984e8f0df1338d1b3c90ff2eb7711&mediaurl=http%3a%2f%2fupload.wikimedia.org%2fwikipedia%2fcommons%2f7%2f7d%2fHudson_Canyon.jpg&exph=335&expw=300&q=Hudson+River+canyon+under+ocean&FORM=IRPRST&selectedIndex=0&stid=4c6f391e-0c06-4be2-fd06-46ae98f24fa4&cbn=EntityAnswer&idpp=overlayview&ajaxhist=0&ajaxserp=0
  10. As a member who is currently getting a pension from a union that invested my money into a mutual fund which likely had stocks in Amazon. my hypocrisy is showing. 50 shades of grey indeed.
  11. As a Stake building specialist/PFR I will say that the cleaning agents we use are Hydrogen peroxide based . They come in 2 strengths, one for general purpose cleaning and the other ( twice the concentration ) only for toilets. As I have said before, our building is a designated emergency shelter. The gov't inspectors come by twice a year. They have told me personally that our cleaning agents are the top of the line ones and are recommended .
  12. I don't know why the Church invests in hotels anyway. The big money is in international banking. Apart from that ' usury ' thingy , there is no principle bending problem. Drinking alcohol may not be a sin but its abuse leads to sin. I wonder how many " mutual funds" owned by pensions include Amazon stock . Divest ye heathens !!
  13. 1. Black and white thinking, seeing the bath water. 2. discouragement about unable to live up to demands , real or not. 3. OK I'll take the hit, the Nephite disease.
  14. Whatever floats your dingy !
