DW just got her DNA results. Lots of neanderthal variants. Anyone know where we can get neanderthal names so she can do her temple work? What is that? The first token of the Arronic P-hood. Has it a name? It has. Will you give it to me? Ice Age Og the Cave Man!!!

Amazing how at the time it seems so important and critical. Now it's just BS and a total joke.

My mom recently passed away and we had a good send off at a funeral home. No bishop presiding etc., but since my mom was an active member her entire life the ward did the lunch. We appreciated it, but just wanted to say the ward bishop called and asked us to pay for the ham. My mom was active and paid tithes etc., her entire life and they ask us to pay for the ham - unbelievable. It's not t

Thanks for the information and references to consider. A complex system not easily understood, but looks like science is getting closer. Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith also suggests that when humans evolved a nerve based memory it lead to consciousness and the ability to compare experiences. Griffith also suggests the human condition (people are capable of great good and bad) is a r

No one knows what causes consciousness, so I'm not sure how we can be so sure it goes away when we die - nothing outside the body. I agree science points to the idea that when we die we are done - but until someone explains consciousness, I don't see how you can totally discount NDEs.

Try the Art of Dying by Dr Peter Fenwick. In the book he documents lots of accounts that can't all be coincidences. He also documents recurring events before death. I starting reading this when my mom got really ill and wanted to know how I could possibly help her. http://skeptiko.com/64-near-death-experience-research-dr-peter-fenwick/

Thanks for reading. Voices in the head was just my way to say we all have a good and evil side. For the science: https://www.humancondition.com/ "I have no doubt FREEDOM provides the holy grail of insight we have sought for the psychological rehabilitation of the human race.

Platos cave is one attempt to understand the human condition. The human condition means we as humans can be both good and loving and incredibly hateful etc.. Why do we have good and bad "voices" in our head? Here is a science explanation of the human condition. Humans evolved instincts to be good and help one another. After we evolved instincts to be good we developed a conscio

How about the oath of vengence that was in the old temple ceremony. "You and each of you do covenant and promise that you will pray and never cease to pray to Almighty God to avenge the blood of the prophets upon this nation, and that you will teach the same to your children and to your children's children unto the third and fourth generation.[2]"

A long time friend and recently called stake missionary came by today to "warn" me I better come back to church OR ELSE. The big message was Jesus is on the way and the cleansing could start soon. He started off the conversation asking me about my "happiness factor." I am guessing he asked this because the church likes to preach that happiness only comes through the chur

The same "mo-logic" applies to all kinds of stuff. Science and religion lead to different conclusions (earth 6000 yrs old or 4.5 billion). Well, we don't everything, but someday when we die we know it all. Another kind of opposite play is: we can burn up all the resources on earth and who cares about the future because Jesus is a comin and earth was made just for man.

Yes, it's called nature and it's much better, more powerful etc., than Jesus, zues, Muhammed etc. Nature lets us be part of it and understand it.

No one can be put in a box as suggested by the article. Sure you can generalize, but there are a million exceptions to every generalization. This kind of stuff also makes it easier to look down on others because they are in this or that box. What is the overall point of the article?

I watched a couple of these. No surprise LDS Inc needs to keep up with the issues. Looks like Kate Kelley is right. No women needed at these shows.

My wife was similar, but would listen simetimes, and over time she was out. We now enjoy a hike and wine on sunday. One thing that helped her was to see just how uncristian and hypocritical mormons can be. The gospel of love is the gospel of rules, gossip and ladder climbing. Try and hang in. It will happen, just wait for church members themselves to do stupid stuff then just sit back and let

If you think man is not the cause try this: go outside and look at all the plants in your area. The earth is covered with them. Plants take CO2 from the air and keep the CO2 in balance, but human burning of fossil fuels has overwhelmed the system and the concentation of CO2 has risen 33% in 50 years. As a result of the 33% rise in CO2 temperature has gone up. It takes real mental gymnastics to

1. It's the only true church, yet most people are not Mormon. If its so great and obviously right why don't people see it. Since I believed God loves everyone equally this bugged me a lot. 2. Science and religion - this lead to questioning not only the flood, Adam and Eve etc., but also Book of Mo, Book of Abe etc.. the dominoes fell hard with the CES letter 3. In church it always bugg

Each generation also believes the prophesies about the second comming. It's been at least 5 or 6 generations and still no Jesus. Looks like either Jesus doesn't give a ×#!$ about bible prophesy or the prophesy is bull !#$/.
