Mormons May not be Awash in a Sea of Porn

April 17th, 2014 by The Junior Ganymede

A new analysis shows.

Whether this is because Mormon men aren’t lusty, red-blooded males, or because of the warning voice of the prophets, we leave to the reader to judge.

God is a Creator

April 17th, 2014 by Zen

imgres

 

While the Earth may have been created in 6 days, the Almighty certainly has not taken a vacation. By nature, He is a creator, and he continues to create, both gradual new life on earth and new bodies outside of this earth. Here we have an instability in the rings of Saturn, forming into a new moon. This one in particular, (informally known as ‘Peggy’) is not expected to grow much larger and may not be stable. But scientists think that the rest of the moons of Saturn formed in a similar way and that the ring system of Saturn used to be much more extensive.

Thus JPL

And in other planet related news, scientists working with the Kepler telescope have just announced discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the so-called Goldilocks Zone. This is the closest match made so far, out of the 1800+ planets discovered and it is a mere 500 light years away.

-thus Elder Rasband.

Dwarfs Standing in the Pits that Giants Dug

April 16th, 2014 by Adam G.

The logical and imaginative grammars of belief, which still informed the thinking of earlier generations of atheists and skeptics, are no longer there. In their place, there is now—where questions of the divine, the supernatural, or the religious are concerned—only a kind of habitual intellectual listlessness.

–from here.

Unbelief dwindles. Only it turns out the verb is transitive, not intransitive as we had supposed.

Some of the Things that Weigh You Down are Actually Anchors

April 15th, 2014 by Adam G.

Very few people that leave the good old folkways can keep from getting all mixed up in the mind. We can make raids and excursions into the wild, but it has to be from well kept strongholds.

-thus Robert Frost

The Costs of Discipleship

April 15th, 2014 by Adam G.

Elder Holland is pitching it strong and true.

The road leading to the promised land “flowing with milk and honey” of necessity runs by way of Mount Sinai, flowing with “thou shalts” and “thou shalt nots.”

The Land of Mañana is the Land of Mañana.

April 14th, 2014 by Man SL

The US is going southwest, inevitably. That’s not a prediction, its simply looking at current births and realizing that every 20-year old 20 years from now is being born now.

Revealed Belief

April 14th, 2014 by Adam G.

Revealed belief” is as powerful a notion as revealed preference is.

Not everyone who says “Lord, Lord” shall enter the kingdom of heaven.

Warning: do not apply the ‘revealed belief’ tool to our national political and cultural leadership if you have a history of heart trouble or depression.

Awake in the Night Land

April 14th, 2014 by Adam G.

The Last Redoubt

John C. Wright’s book Awake in the Night Land is out.

I can’t really express how good it is. This is a book that I will be rereading and thinking about for the rest of my life. It is a book that made my eyes shine when my wife walked into the room. It is touched with holiness. (more…)

Two Atonements

April 11th, 2014 by Adam G.

There are two atonements.
Christ becomes one with us (salvation).
Then we become one with Christ (exaltation).
