Re: Does 'proof' sway your belief either way?

I think the more coherent evidence you have the stronger your position is. If you have little to no evidence then you are operating on faith. Which is OK just don't expect others to accept what you choose to believe

Re: Have you stopped attending the temple and wearing garments, but still go?

No garments no temple recommend for about 5 years. Cant say I really miss them either. It was weird at first after wearing them for over 30 years but that did not last long. I go to church with my wife at times, but really do not believe any of it. Sort of like the social aspect of the church however.

Re: Denying Your Faith

It would be hard for me to deny something I do not have. I would have to answer I can neither confirm or deny.

Re: Poll: What was your shelf-breaker?

How about when I took two steps back and looked at it with a little common sense it all fell apart rather quickly. It takes a significant amount of effort to maintain belief but is relatively easy to see the inconsistencies.

Re: GA Salaries Article -- Comments

Where in most of us our salary must cover all our living expenses I am not sure that is the some for church leaders. I doubt they pay for medical care like we do. Imagine being in your 70's or 82's and never having to worry about paying for prescriptions or world class medical care. All your travel ...

Re: Why Mormons voted for Trump

I voted for Trump not out of fear but I figured he was the most likely candidate in the last 50 years that would actually do what he said he would. Now that may throw fear into some people but for me I want the US to not pander to special interest groups. I want the border to be controlled. I want b...

Re: The nasty end of atheism

Why do we always put labels on people and then try and associate bad behavior to that label. Some people are just idiots, regardless of their belief. It is more like their atheism or religion is an out growth of them not the cause of their idiocy.

Re: "Mingling with Gods, he can plan for his brethren"

Don't think it means anything. Just some words someone put in a song that sounded good at the time.

Re: Members talking about ex members

I just don't think the average TBM type can comprehend that someone really believes the church is false. It has to be sin or laziness of some kind. It just does not enter their mind that the church is wrong it must be the individual. If you have that viewpoint your brain has to develop reasons for p...

Re: Interesting podcast with Gregory Prince

Their approach works for a whole lot of people - far more than would be represented at a site like this, since most people here are here because their approach doesn't work exactly for us, even it their approach helps many people here as evidence that more people are walking individual paths than i...
