I thought we might as well get organized first, before we proceed to look into the Nahom find: A. The relevant portions of Nephi chapter 2 2 And it came to pass that the Lord commanded my father, even in a dream, that he should take his family and depart into the wilderness. 3 And it came to pass th...

Sargon, what I would like to do is explore the appropriateness of comments such as these: The only real anti-mormon apology for this coincidence is just that, that it is a big coincidence... ....EVERYONE in his day knew that that was simply false. However after more exploration has been done all of ...

Could you ask again? Unless it is on the same topic, do you think it better we wait until others react to my post and we can finish this discussion?

Mormon 6:6 And it came to pass that when we had gathered in all our people in one to the land of Cumorah, behold I, Mormon, began to be old; and knowing it to be the last struggle of my people, and having been commanded of the Lord that I should not suffer the records which had been handed down by ...

Your confusion is that you do not understand the nature of LDS thought. I still don't think that there is confusion or misunderstanding over here...what you claim is no diiferent than what I have seen frequently before. I have seen it often enough to conclude that it is the favored strategy of Morm...

The fact of the matter is that the BoM does not paint an accurate picture of any of the N American civilizations....for if such was really the case we would be able to say where the events in the BoM must have taken place (b/c we could match the civilization described in the BoM with the known and ...

Dude, You may consider turning the tables and asking why a just and Holy God would ever allow anyone into heaven. That is the real mystery. Hell is an easy one to answer. God sends people there because we deserve it. Actually, your "mystery" is an easy one to answer too. God allows people into heav...

Let's start with the easiest things first. Ya know those maps that are sometimes illustated in those Mormon books? Isn't it pretty interesting how those maps don't match up to any land, at all, located on the Planet Earth? According to the poster this is the easiest one. I find it the easiest to si...

...But we still don't need religion as a basis for morality. Eh, Nietzsche? What say you? Turgy, do you think arranged marriages are necessarily immoral?...do you think arranged marriages for the purposes of selective breeding are necessarily immoral?

I don't draw a line; I accept it as it's written. I accept it as written too...tell me, do you spiritualize "death"? If so, do you do so b/c that's the way the text makes sense to you? Do you spiritualize everything else or have you drawn a line? You earlier mentioned that Satan could make a snake ...

.... although I wonder why you have to declare half of the story to be allegorical. don't know about the measurement of half...but, its the way it makes sense to me. Also, I suspect that you interpret part of it in a non-literal fashion and so I would wonder why you draw the line where you do. :wink:
