I know, but the point is rather simple. Age doesn't dissolve truth.

Going back to the above, I hope we wont write them off because they have established a body of work that is not just rhetoric, but can be read, reviewed and if need be recreated to be be proven or disproven. I dont think religious scripture can beheld to those standards.

When I read this statement, It sounded good. Then I thought: At one point the 'truth' was that if you sailed a ship far enough in a direction, you would simply fall off of it. I would imagine as time passed, that 'truth' was infact disproven (or dissolved) and replaced with an even 'truthier' truth. Just a thought...

I think it can. It's experiential in nature.

No matter how commonly accepted something is, if it is wrong it is not ever truthful.

I'm surprised to see such a dualistic statement from you, Martian.

Really? I've never been big into populism. The Catholic Church held mass in Latin for a reason.

They can be sealed to as many wives they want. So yes they still do practice polygamy just not physically. They have to pay 10% of their income in tithing to the Mormon corporation within the past year to attend. The ceremony is intended to seal them to their wife/ wives so they may become gods over their very own planet. These ads of them being "Christian" or normal are false. You guys have no idea the bullet we dodged by not having a Mormon president.
