Re: Collateral Damage

I used to find it easier to believe Satan existed than God, a local warlord, capo di capo, working through divide and rule and preventing humans being happy through one means... Not much different from many of the human thugs who run parts of this world.

Re: Finding Eternal Truths in Classic Literature: A Conversation with Author S. Michael Wilcox

We say we beleive there are virtuous, praiseworthy, lovely, good things outside of our religion and that we seek after them. We also are told to seek wisdom and learning out of the best books. I think of Les Miserables, for example. SO much eternal truth I wish we understood better, collectively. I...

And now I wonder... would I want a more open canon? I bet the first thing that would go into a newly open canon would be the proclamation.
Well it is still theoretically open. At least one section - OD2 (1978) was added in living memory.

Re: My Best & Worst List

My take: Good: * Eternal families: this is a really good defence against bereavement. * Personal revelation, open canon * i like the range of speakers at church (although to be fair this is found elsewhere) * Priesthood is spread across the membership (but women...) Neutral: * Living prophet... This...

It doesn't say what category it's under? If he opens up his Parental Controls, he should see specifics as to what field is being blocked, and will probably be able to overwrite it. He can't open up his parental controls... That's the thing. He's got a bit of deafness and high functioning autism, te...

Re: Forum is filtered

My friend is pretty computer illiterate. I've told him to lose the netnanny and get a proper firewall instead (my laptop got a Trojan through his WiFi)... The netnanny is highly annoying - it filters Facebook and Twitter (which I partly understand), but also Memory Alpha (the Star Trek wiki) and cer...

Re: BoM Geography Theories (GT)

On my latest reading of the BoM, I had a thought about this. It indicates that after wandering around the desert near Jerusalem for a while, the whole group heads more or less due east for eight years.

Re: Church to allow baptisms, blessings for children of LGBT parents, updates handbook regarding 'apostasy'

I believe it was the church's biggest misfire since they finally got rid of the priesthood ban.
