I saw an old movie tonight titled: Inherit the Wind. Starring Spencer Tracy & Frederic March.
It dealt with the trial of a public school teacher who chose to teach the writings of Charles Darwin & Evolution.
The core message was: does man have the right to think for himself & to teach ideas that are contrary to the teachings of the bible?

That's as far as I want to go with it tonight. It seems to have a lot of application with some of the things we discuss on this site.
It is an excellent movie & I highly recommend it.

DS is attending a youth group at the local Methodist church. They have some really great activities.

Anyway last week they talked about some things that the bible got right that scientists are only now figuring out.

The examples seemed to me to be a pretty significant leap but there they were, being used to help prove that the bible was the word of God.

It reminded me that what we Mormons do with the BoM in trying to prove its truth is not unique. We are more similar than we are different.

Highlighting what past people got right while ignoring what they got wrong in order to bolster one's own attachment to the past is a timeless tradition.
