Re: We aren't the only ones with scripture challenges

Yes, I'm school we have long talked about it I'm high school in the 1990s. Mostly because I grew up near the city that perpetuated that myth"Hollywood". Yes, it's mostly a culture myth. I'm fact the evidence suggest that there we're Hebrew slave owners on the out skirts of Egypt for further demystif...

Re: Hi

I am currently focusing on my upcoming kid on not about being me or what I want but what they want. I would like well placed moral values of course. But I am using and implementing a newer parent theory called "self determination theory-patenting". It seems like the one I most would have loved to gr...

Re: Does Mormonism Allow for Free Agency?

“Do you believe in the existence of God?” For many, an immediate “yes” would be considered the right answer. But what does an answer of “yes” constitute? Is it the love for their God? Is it faith? Or yet, is it fear? Erich Fromm states, “(Religion) is not as an act of faith but in order to escape a...

Re: A Touching Video: May We Understand "Differences" Better

The word "elective" being in there is a good point, Ray. I'm assuming it's there for the case of a child born with attributes of both genders in which a choice has to be made (usually by the parents early on). Nevertheless, I could see that an understanding leader might have a more open interpretat...

Re: New essay on lds.org: The Book of Abraham

Tempt me to the dark side of the force will you? :( Sigh... #1) They focus on the BoA text as it relates to the recovered fragments but completely ignore the misinterpretations of the vignettes. That's nowhere to be found in the essay. #2) I felt the small section dedicated to the KEP didn't go int...

Re: Staying as atheist/agnostic

Critical thinking became so much more powerful and influential in my ideas about the nature of the universe than any warm fuzzie ever could. One can be Buddhist AND Mormon, or pretty much anything else for that matter. Likewise, a very good argument could be made that Joseph Smith was a mystic, and...

Re: Does Mormonism Allow for Free Agency?

I am not a Federalist, because I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever in religion, in philosophy, in politics, or in anything else where I was capable of thinking for myself. Such an addiction is the last degradation of a free and moral agent. If...

Re: Giving a talk on SSM, Marriage, and Inclusion: Suggestio

I don't know if this will add to the discussion or not. But I feel like I should point out that we may say that we can still be kind to those with whom we disagree, but it's going to take a lot more than just saying "we love you" to convince them. Don't be surprised if gays and lesbians don't belie...

Re: Do you think I did the logical thing

Please rephrase the answer in the form of a question. "What is the liquid that increases base desires and significantly decreases critical think skills?! Thank you Alex trebek! ;) on a more serious note. A subsequent group of researchers found that drinking increases levels of norepinephrine, the ne...
