Oh yeah, science and science fiction go hand-in-hand. Duh. That's why it's called science fiction.

With the Bible you don't have to add the fiction. It's already there. It's just that it sucks. A movie based on the Bible would be a crapfest worse than Beverley Hills Chihuahua 3.

What you cite is propaganda. This story became the necessity due to the lack of evidence.

A number of series have been influence by mormons. I have to say I do find the syfy imagination of these writers entertaining.

This fusion of religion, science fiction, and fantasy is not unusual to Utahans. Brigham Young University alumni Orson Scott Card (Enderís Game) and Stephenie Meyer (Twilight Series), both practicing Mormons, include religious themes in their stories. Ender Wigginís father is Roman Catholic, and his mother is a Latter-day Saint, while Twilight begins with a biblical quote on its frontispiece,........

Card also has two other series, Homecoming Saga and Alvin Maker, the former placing the Book of Mormon figures in a science-future setting, and the latter retelling the life of Latter-day Saint prophet Joseph Smith in a frontier-fantasy setting.

Another Latter-day Saint, Glen A. Larson, regularly incorporated religious ideas into the first-run-version of Battlestar Galactica. This fusion has been institutionalized by BYUís yearly science fiction writing convention Life, The Universe, and Everything.

Second, I have felt this emotion towards what I believed. I was once very religious. The feeling I had did affect my body and mind. But does this feeling mean a god is real or does it just mean my belief was real? I think the latter is so.

No, actually that's not even anything remotely close to what I was inferring.

Maybe try reading it again, when your brain's working a little better?

I don't see how they can study "the Bible" 2 school anyhow. I suggest studying it 2 home. It would be much more effective that way anyhow.

Yes it would..because that's where the responsibility in teaching ethics, decency, respect of others, etc is SUPPOSED to start.

And to think, some parents would seemingly rather see their kids out acting like brainless thugs.

Go figure.

Yeah, but if I found Reagan I'd have to cut a deal with Jesus that would hamstring the nation intellectually for decades. I can't live with that kind of thing on my conscience. Plus I hate old westerns.

It makes sense that there are a bunch of Mormons writing fantasy. The Book of Mormon is Bible fan fiction, albeit terribly written.

Must all be the same religie. Odds are very much against 5 religies with the IQs of 3 finding the same topics thread at the same time.

Rational people realize they are all just movies, not reality.
Even the title, "The Greatest STORY Ever Told" should give you a clue to that.

So me pointing out your hypocrisy is hypocrisy?
Unlike you, I do not condemn judging the feelings one has in a spiritual state. I think it should be open for discussion. But I did want to point out that you did judge ones feelings and thus were clearly hypocritical.
Evidently you do not even know what hypocritical means.

The recent series, the bible was pretty good. I noted how it portrayed the religious leaders as the typical tyrannical dictators and politicians.
King David was not a good man. Why the bible would insist the messiah had to be in his blood line is beyond me. Monarchies.
And no, American government is not based upon these concepts.
