  1. Are you sure? False equivalence is a logical fallacy in which an equivalence is drawn between two subjects based on flawed or false reasoning. This fallacy is categorized as a fallacy of inconsistency. Colloquially, a false equivalence is often called "comparing apples and oranges."
  2. Just more garbage and corruption. Glad I cut cable a few years ago and didn’t replace it with subscriptions.
  3. Not as much Freedom to kill their unborn child? Yeah, I can live with that.
  4. I believe in NDEs. I do have a couple of caveats when reading them. My belief that one is true and not made up is in direct contrast to the level of detail and the length of any given experience. In other words, the longer it is and the more details that it has, the greater chance that it was made up. Sadly all LDS authors of NDEs have a greater likelihood of fabricating them than other authors (ex, Julie Rowe, Spencer, Chad Daybell, Sara Menet, Betty Ede …).
  5. Great news:!!I just received the following email: “Change in Temple SchedulingDraper Utah TempleMembers who want to attend the Draper Utah Temple to perform proxy ordinances now have the option to either schedule an appointment or attend without an appointment, where space is available.As priority will be given to members with appointments, those who attend without an appointment may be asked to wait for an opportunity to participate. As it has always been, appointments will still be necessary for all members who come to receive their own ordinances (endowment and sealing).You are encouraged to attend the temple as often as your circumstances allow.How to Reserve an AppointmentYou can reserve an appointment on ChurchofJesusChrist.org, in the Member Tools app, or by calling the temple. Also, you may now schedule multiple appointments for any ordinance in any temple.”
  6. As an FYI, my perspective it that of a former temple ordinance worker and weekly attender. Sadly the appointment process continues to be an impediment to temple attendance. Walk-ins are not allowed in my area of UT even if there is room in the session. To book an appointment, it is 2 months out which is just unworkable for me. if The Church wishes to increase temple attendance, remove the appointment process immediately. If not enough workers is the issue, make the work schedules more flexible (ex a bi-weekly option vs weekly only). Sheesh people in The Church LOVE their rules.
  7. This is a great question and I wish that I had a clear answer for you. Unfortunately there is nothing in canonical scripture that directly identifies what / who it represents. Since the answer that I have come to involves inferences and a + b = c kind of thought process, it’s probably not of value to anyone else. What do you think about the “fruit” of that tree?
  8. I haven’t read his work so thanks for the tip. I’ll give it a look. From my own studies, there is no doubt that that is exactly what Job is and intended to be studied as such.

  10. So glad to see that more and more people look deeper into the message and “get it”…ever notice the similarity / parallel to the Book of Job? How he starts in an idyllic state? How Satan is allowed to tempt him? How trials and temptations beset him in a fallen existence? How he lives up to covenants and is faithful? How he is promised special blessings? After which he is blessed immeasurably? (wink, wink)
  11. When you come to the realization that the story of The Garden and Adam and Eve are more allegorical than historical, your questions will be answered.
  12. A source for this might be helpful. The admitted anecdotal evidence that I have is just the opposite.
