Sol sounds like quite an inventive fellow for his day - he imagines the elect dying and waking up god of a new planet to populate and rule (supernaturally, I trust).


Or was he really the angel Moroni working under cover?


Anyway, whoever's responsible for the pseudo-KJV dump should be taken out and - dealt with severely.

all the religious stuff can be attributed to Smith and his followers

The book of mormon is as much doo doo as the bible.


My complaint on this occasion is addressed to the style.  It reflects so badly on the author as to deprive the writings of credibility before the show even starts.





You are aware of the old controversy and allegations that the Book of Mormon started out as a Novel by one of Smith's New York neighbors and  that he dressed it up in pseudo-Biblical style?




I never heard that one before.

I haven't heard of two Jefferson bibles. 


The one I have has no witches or resurrection.  At a quick glance, it's the same as the text given here (links towards the foot of the linked page).


If you can point out any witches or resurrections, I'll have learnt something.



I too am aware of only one Thomas Jefferson bible, there may have been some drafts before he settled on one version.

On further thought, I'd be altogether astonished if Jefferson included a resurrection in any finished version of his reworking.


As I understand his purpose, magic is wholly antithetical to it.

I have a question... is everybody else seeing almost everything in italics?

Have you got anything I can sink my teeth into?

I was just going to ask the same thing.


Yes, the front-page is all italicized, but the threads appear coorectly.

Ditto to above.

Jesus had two dads, and he turned out alright.~ Andy Gussert

“Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions…for safety on the streets…for child care, for social welfare…for rape crisis centers, women’s refuges, reforms in the law.

If someone says, “Oh, I’m not a feminist,” I ask, “Why, what’s your problem?”

 It's very annoying. I don't like how it looks.
