How do you explain the millions of people with a different religion, contradictory to yours, who also think they "know." You have no more proof than they do. Your belief is based on the same sort of gut feeling they have. You all think all the others are wrong, but when asked why you are so sure none of you have an answer beyond screaming that you just know.

Doesn't it all seem a bit ignorant?

For what is too come...Great Day
It is better to light candles
than to curse the darkness.
It is better to plant seeds
than to accuse the earth.
The world needs all of our power
and love and energy,
and each of us has something that we can give.
The trick is to find it and use it,
to find it and give it away.
So there will always be more.
We can be lights for each other,
and through each other's illumination
we will see the way.
Each of us is a seed,
a silent promise,
and it is always spring."
Hope springs eternal in the human breast: Man never is, but always To be Blest.

It has never been verified that this ever happened. Every religion has stories of miracles accomplished by different gods. Why do you believe your particular religion's accounts of miracles, and disbelief the rest?

Which bible? There are several hundred different religions and interpretations of those religions.
"BIBLE study rules for public schools proposed" The topic is not the amount of religions, languages, interpretations. It says, "BIBLE". Even the different languages may only lose a little in translation but, we are an English speaking country, or supposed to be our semi-official language. I know of KJV and NIV of the Bible which is two. I'm sure there is other production companies but, the Holy Bible old and new testament are it.

What you know is your feelings, and opinion. If that makes something a fact then there is a whole lot of conflicting facts huh?
Notice how many times you said my? Religion or egomania, two sides of the same coin.

<quoted text>Right, it is true that Smith didn't seem to be as racist as the others, to his credit. But the book he wrote, The Book of Mormon, does literally say that God cursed the Lamanites with dark skin:

[quote]And [God] had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people, the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them. And thus saith the Lord God; I will cause that they shall be loathsome unto thy people, save they shall repent of their iniquities." (2 Nephi 5:21)[/quote]

This is part of their holy book, and if it is wrong then one can call the entire faith into question. Why would God put this in there if it wasn't accurate?

The LDS is led by a Prophet, chosen by Jesus himself. Brigham Young, who was most certainly an avid racist, was the Prophet of the church for 30 years and is in many ways far more responsible for their development than Smith.

So you have a church founded by a con man, then taken over by a racist. You have a holy book full of racist doctrine. You have a church that actively rejected blacks from holding the priesthood until the 1970s. Yet all of this is led by a man who was chosen by Jesus himself through revelation.

It is true that Mormons were singled out and persecuted by other types of Christians and to this day they hold a kind of shady character. But let's face it. When you you base your religion on these kinds of silly, hateful, stupid ideas you're going to get flack for it. I would never support the idea of hurting people for their beliefs but I do support the idea of calling them out on their dumb ideas.
Do you realize that Mormons weren't the first to believe this?
And we do not believe that Joseph "wrote" the BOM, we believe he translated it.

Now you have the RIGHT to your opinion! I DON'T belong to a CULT! The Bible says God's Word will CONFOUND the Non-believer! You know, I used to be where you are & thinking the way you think until JESUS knocked on my heart & I let Him in! You see, I know the things you say about me & Jesus ONLY come from SATAN!! Believe me, Satan is REAL also & is here ONLY to kill, steal, & destroy!! SATAN is also a Liar & the father of ALL LIES!

Yes you are a Cultist, every cultist ask always screams in denial of their cult being a cult and then claim other peoples cults are really cults but not their cult... No one knocked on your heart and you let him in.. Your Heart Pumps Blood to oxygenate the cells in your body... Basic anatomy would be a better read for you....

we feel what we do , and others feel as they do, guess it is how the road goes .. I feel my road is right although sometimes the way is very crooked, but we all have to find our own roads .. And I just pray each road chosen leads us each where we need to be in the end.. Great day ahead too all...
