Whenever a Mormon tries to answer serious and thoughtful questions about the legitimacy of Mormon doctrine and teachings...by citing Mormon scriptures that assert that it's all from God...it reminds me of a 10-year-old box of corn flakes that has the words "Fresh!" and "Delicious!" printed right there on the box in big, bold, brightly colored letters.
"Oooh! Yuck! These corn flakes taste like stale, moldy cardboard or something. Totally inedible!"
"But, but...you must be wrong! The corn flakes are fresh and delicious! They have always been fresh and delicious and always will be fresh and delicious!"
"No way. The flakes taste horrible. How can you say that they are fresh and delicious??"
"Look, stupid. Look right here on the box. It says "Fresh!" and it says "Delicious!" What's wrong with you? Don't you know how to read? Now, shut up and eat your fresh and delicious corn flakes! Whiner..."
