  1. Tacenda, it must be exhausting to be surrounded by this irrationality. May I ask why you just haven’t unfollowed or even blocked posts from these negative family members? Or stay off FB completely? If you have to read it to stay in touch with family, may I suggesting as soon as you see it relates to Covid or politics and not family, choose the “hide this post” option if it bothers you. You can choose one day a week or even one day a month to catch up on the latest criticisms if you believe you need to be aware of them, but reading day in and day out is going to create a sense of you being surrounded by negativity. Instead, focus on the positive stuff that goes on with your family….and if your family isn’t positive, find some friends or an interest that is positive and fun and refreshing and focus on that as much as you can to stay upbeat.
  2. The 50% death rate of those given Remdesivir in the clinical study was due to the 50% death rate of Ebola. Iow, the drug most likely didn’t kill them, Ebola did. If the drug killed them, the death rate would be more than 50%. Only one participant likely died from side effects due to Remdesivir out of a likely 125 infected patients. They didn’t have a noninfected control group, but I assume death from Ebola is different from death from Remdesivir’s side effects so they could tell what the cause of death was. https://www.nih.gov/news-events/nih-research-matters/two-drugs-reduce-risk-death-ebola Added: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7151266/ If he continues to claim that Remdesivir kills 50% of its Ebola patients after you point out that Ebola kills 50% of those infected, you should ask for the clinical trials that show this to be true.
  3. Do you have any hope that if you present him or others with studies they will be believed as factual? Or do you just want information for your own comfort because you feel alone in your beliefs? Remdesivir was pulled because it wasn’t as effective as two other drugs, not because it was killing people. https://www.biopharmadive.com/news/coronavirus-remdesivir-gilead-antiviral-drug-covid-19/573261/ Are the same people in your family now trashing this drug also antivaccine or calling for permission to use ivermectin? Iirc, in the past Fauci and others were panned for not quickly allowing Remdesivir to be widely used originally and instead insisting the proper clinical trials be performed.

  5. I know members that are in to studying end times. They are great people, wonderful members who go the extra mile in many ways. I think it more not that they are completely devoid of discernment, etc, but that at times like the rest of us they let wishful thinking take the place of confirmation of the Spirit. They want to know more and this stuff can give a sense of security that they are informed, something comforting in an ambiguous world. Once a taste for it is developed, then it can move into an obsession for a variety of reasons, some good as in wanting to be prepared and some not good like pride in knowing more than others. One might even describe it as an emotional addiction at times (those who spend thousands of dollars on weekly sessions with favorite guru reading their energies, etc).
  6. My brain fog is a great analogy Imo for the spiritual and knowledge veil that we experience at birth and throughout mortality, imo. I cannot access memory or initiate certain rational abilities during these times, sometimes to a point it feels like there is instantly a wall in my mind that I suddenly slammed into. My brain fog does not change my nature, it simply limits access to some of my abilities. I don’t see Christ having access to certain divine abilities when we do not unless through the Spirit (example: healing) as changing his nature any more than when we receive the gift of the Holy Ghost or when we are in better tune to the Spirit our nature changes.
  7. Some interpret it as another world in the same universe. They, if I understand them correctly, see the Father as having created many worlds in the universe, but not the Universe itself. And that we will create worlds in this universe as well. Some interpret coeternal as in both directions, having existed forever in some form. I am one.
  8. I would also describe it as Christ having access to his divinity during his mortal existence while the rest of us do not, at least not without the Spirit.
  9. Gospel Principles is an official source, though it may not go into much depth. I think that and GospelTopics are the best starting places, no need to stop there of course.
  10. BYU won….interesting to read about it from the AZ POV: https://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/college/asu/2021/09/18/live-updates-4-key-players-out-no-21-asu-plays-no-23-byu/8407177002/ GG visits the board quite a bit and gives out rep points, but she says she is fine and just rather busy right now, so we aren’t seeing her posts as usual.
  11. He must have some attraction one to one as his writing isn’t that great either. I would say he might be a good listener, but it seems unlikely. But according to Melanie Gibb iirc, there were women hovering around him at presentations…but maybe she was just trying to justify her own interest, she kept saying she was more just an observer and someone who wanted to keep an open mind, but documents and other stuff show her as more accepting as she went along with LVD’s schemes up to lying to police.
  12. Interesting comment. I wonder if it is accurate. Maybe will check. Added: looks like it is true (I am assuming the hospital did its homework): https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/workforce/prove-it-hospital-asks-unvaccinated-employees-claiming-religious-exemption.html
  13. Harry Clark, you really need to stop relying on sources without doing additional research. I found most of the above within a minute of trying. Your credibility is suffering greatly due to your lack of double checking claims. Having said that, I do agree that we need better, more precise data. Clark:
