Revelations from God

Posted by coventryrm on Monday, June 22, 2009

Those to whom his word was revealed were always alone in some remote place, like Moses. There wasn’t anyone else around when Mohammed got the word, either. Mormon Joseph Smith and Christian Scientist, Mary Baker Eddy, had exclusive audiences with God.  We have to trust them as reporters – you know how reporters are. They’ll do anything for a story.  — Andy Rooney, Sincerely, Andy Rooney

The Word of Wisdom

Posted by skiutah on Saturday, June 20, 2009

An old member of the LDS church once told me that he could remember when it was okay for Mormons to drink coffee. He was born in the early 1900s, and said drinking coffee and tea weren’t sins back in those days.

Brigham Young taught “If a person is weary, worn out, cast down, fainting, or dying, a brandy sling, a little wine, or a cup of tea is good to revive them. Do not throw these things away, and say they must never be used; they are good to be used with judgment, prudence, and discretion. Ask our Bishops if they drink tea every day, and in most cases they will tell you they do if they can get it.” JD 12:403

Brigham Young also advised tobacco chewers “Many of the brethren chew tobacco, and I have advised them to be modest about it. Do not take out a whole plug of tobacco in meeting before the eyes of the congregation, and cut off a long slice and put it in your mouth…” JD 8:362

Saving Yourself from Religion

Posted by skiutah on Thursday, June 18, 2009

Here’s an article where psychologists demonstrate that humans have an innate ability to believe in false ideas regardless of factual evidence that demonstrates a concept is false: Illusion of validity

Have you ever wondered why some people accept as truth things that seem unbelievable? Some strange beliefs jump to mind:

Friday the 13th is unlucky
American Indians are Book of Mormon Lamanites
Tooth Fairy
Jesus was Quetzalcoatl
Racism was okay before 1978
Satan owns the waterways
Alice Cooper and Snoop Dog are Mormons
Book of Abraham
Santa Claus
Polyandry and polygamy
Pro Wrestling
Obama Birther Conspiracy
Journal of Discourses
Where are the Three Nephites?
