The only caveat I would add is that Rational people don't "Except" evolution as to me that that to the religious folks sounds like their mindset of "Belief"... Just Except the bible or some other text as the Word of God and we will all be Believers... I think rational people Understand the concept of Evolution and question it on an ongoing basis changing that understanding as new evidence is presented and verified.. Even the Scientific community falls prey to Excepting a view at times and allow it to become dogma then refuse to even consider new evidence or question old dogmatic views.. It many cases what is claimed as science is just as Belief based as any religion....

I understand that you have strong feelings about this, but having long held beliefs is not the same as knowing something.

How do you account for the mountain of evidence in support of evolution? What do you make of the fossil record? A hoax by the devil maybe? Or maybe it's a trap made by your bi-polar old testament god to fool us non-believers...

Not true on the "Humans are the Only Animals that kill for fun"... Many animals chase, catch and kill other animals just to leave them when they stop flopping around... Mainly Cats and Dogs both wild and domestic... Dolphins have been seen to play with fish for long periods and then kill them and let them fall to the bottom and go find a new one to play with till it's dead...
Had a cat once...
Kept teasing the dogs on the other side of the fence...
I opened the gate one day, to the cats surprise...
The dog played with it ALL day!
I think I feel more for animals stuck in cages...

So, he said that at times "scientists" can behave as stupidly as the religious. And you see this as reaffirming?

Maybe I'm wrong but I think you missed his point.

Is that what inspired you to become one?

I do feel a certain amount of pity toward those who shackle their minds to Their Great Cons - but only a certain amount since they also hold the keys to their own cells, and it is only a Book or a talk show host who tells them they have to sit in the dark.

(1) It's not actual "amusement", more like wonderment!
.
(2) You're "Pretty sure" it is, but you are not tottaly
sure? That's good!
.
(3) No "Nanner nanner nanner" Nothing!
Refer to #2 If you do not know what I know... You are
the ignorant one!
.
(4) Yer right, Long held beliefs are not
'Knowing' something, but the fact that God saved me... Is!
You were not there...
You do not know, hence Ignorant of the truth!
.
(5) "mountain of evidence in support of evolution"
"fossil record"?
Even you should know... yer fossil record just proves
"Something died" Period...
That is the biggest part of your "mountain of evidence",
and it only Proves the Flood that you deny!
.
(6) "A hoax by the devil maybe..."
No!
Just the lies of how we got here, and the chink in your armor
to believe (Yes, Believe) them!
You weigh the Good, and Evil, and I hope you do...
What lies would an evil being tell you...
to get you to not believe in God???
I'll bet I've said pretty much the same things, as you...
Then He showed up, and proved me wrong!
I truly hope you find out what I know!

I did not miss the point, and by virtue, his back handed insult
to religious persons!
Even though, what he said is true for a lot of people!

I understand that you do not know the tricks of satan...
I do think people that chant to a piece of rice paper
in a nice custom box... people that wear custom underwear,
and want to fly to kolob... people that call priests 'Father',
play "Hide the pedophile, and elect a pope as Jesus'
personage on earth... people that worship cows, and
seventyfive other creatures...
are just Whacko!
I know this!
But... in ALL they do... they are closer to the truth
than people that believe that there is no God!
God is real... their just not looking in the right
place, but they are looking!
I hope you look past your nose, as I think it's too far
up Dawkins butt to see anything else!

<quoted text>Is this book written by an LDS apologist, or an actual historian? I love a good biography, but I have no interest in being proselytized to. I've learned far too much about the way these types of religions work to trust that anything they write internally can be objective.

If it is written by a non biased source I'd consider actually reading it. But if the author has a story to sell me about his Prophet I'm really not interested.
There is no unbiased source on any subject. Haha
He is a member of the church but isn't afraid to present the good and bad and let you make up your own mind.

<quoted text>I specifically said no one takes the Book of Abraham seriously, I didn't say no one takes Mormonism seriously.

I am aware of the hate and persecution early Mormons faced. People can be really stupid in groups when they do not understand other groups. And when your group claims that their leader was visited by an angel, translated a lost gospel, and are to inherit their own planets you gotta expect that people will look at you funny. Throw in magic underoos and things get real dicey.

I don't agree with persecution. I do agree with discourse. Free speech is the poison of blind faith.

I've studied the LDS, casually. I know about a bunch of your beliefs and I do find them silly. I also find Baptist, Catholic, and Jewish traditions silly as well.

To be totally honest I don't find your faith any more or less weird than I do the casual local Baptist. I do find it strange when people seek out and join religions. Usually people are trying to get out, not in. But sometimes it goes the other way.

There are some interesting things about LDS, though. I mean, the most obvious religion you can compare it to is Scientology. Both are recent, both founded by people of dubious character, and both have strange science fiction-based ideas. Smith was more of a Bible fan, so he tried to make his story sound Biblical. Hubbard was an actual science fiction writer so he made his stuff sound more "sciencey".

Both religions are very insular, discouraging criticism. Both require donations from their adherents. Not just asking for, but requiring. And both are very hard to leave. I've listened to or read a lot of interviews with former Mormons who say that getting your name removed from that 13 million roster is harder than getting a cable guy to give you a solid window time for when he's going to show up at your house.

Question: Does the 13 million include all the dead people you baptize into your faith?
Be aware that the undergarments only purpose is to remind you of covenants made with God. That's the protection they offer, keeping you from sinning (adultery, etc). We don't believe they are magic. And we aren't the only religion that does this. There are many, outside of the Christian faith. The cloth that Jews wear with the tassels is similar. There are religions in India that do it as well.

Tithing isn't a new concept either. Abraham tithed. The book of Malachi teaches that it isn't a suggestion. He said that you rob God of what is His if you don't tithe.(Old Testament)

Oh and it isn't that hard to have your name removed from records. I have assisted people with this. It takes 10 minutes.
