I have often heard critics of the Book of Mormon make a big stink over the word “adieu” in the Book of Mormon. Was a huge error found in the Book of Mormon or are a lot of people making a mountain out of, well, thin air.
This is one of my favorite all-time verses for a multitude of reasons but I was thinking about it a lot today and thought I put some of these ideas together.
I often find myself pondering the order and organization in the cosmos and in the microscopic world. Some see coincidence, some see a divine hand; here is just another person’s perspective.
So I just recently came across a video proporting to contain audio of a slowed down track of crickets chirping. The result is quite phenomenal but you have to hear it for yourself.
It has occurred to me over the years that there is something significant about white cloth and its use in religious practices and metaphors.
This is probably one of the coolest things that I have seen online, it’s an interactive 5000 megapixel image of the entire night sky! With the 360 degree version you can look around the visible galaxy and see out into the universe, it’s a very humbling experience to say the least and a great reminder of the amazing wonder above our heads that we are oblivious to most of the time.
A simple quote from the prophet Joseph Smith that emphasizes in a unique way the divine origins of our Constitution.
Sometimes I have to laugh at people when they avoid Coca Cola like the plague because of “caffeine” and it’s “addictive qualities” and then chug liters of diet, caffeine free soda. As for me, I’ll stick to water.
Conflicting views exist about when Jesus appeared to his New World disciples. Did he appear directly after his ascension to the Father?

Some interesting words on the concept of time and how it affects us.
Well, it’s not technically a horoscope, but if anyone is curious about the future of any greedy, secret groups seeking to destroy any kind of government that grants liberty to the people, then here is a look at some history that they will and are repeating.
The plot seems to thicken more and more, it’s very exciting to watch it all unfold.
This phrase occurs only in the Book of Mormon but it has always drawn my interest as to what it could mean. I’ve studied it for quite a while and would like to share a little of what I have found thus far.
The plot thickens in the story of these lead plates. Are they real? Are they fakes? More evidence on both sides of the argument.
A group of 70 or so “books”, each with between five and 15 lead leaves bound by lead rings, was apparently discovered in a remote arid valley in northern Jordan somewhere between 2005 and 2007 – but are they real or a well-crafted hoax?
The word “meek” as used in scripture seems to have a lot of importance placed on it, yet in modern society I am used to hearing the word meek used in conjunction with “weak”. So where is the disconnect?
Third times the charm, three strikes and you’re out, three-part harmony…three is all around us, it gives us a frame of reference and is connected to the holy and divine as it represents stability and completeness. Read about some of the most intriguing characteristics of the number three.
Matthew B. Brown wrote an article on TempleStudy comparing the general ideas behind ancient Israelite and Latter-day Saint ceremonial temple clothing. It’s a short but informative read.
What do the seven simple notes that make up the diatonic scale happen to do with the universe? Well, take a look and see for yourself, you’ll probably be as astounded as I was to learn the connection.
Two is probably one of the most amazing numbers when you consider all that it is connected to. This number is connected to some of the most important doctrines and principles like creation, opposition, witnesses and more!
This will be the first in a series of posts exploring basic archetypal symbols and their meaning within a doctrinal context. This first post will focus on the number one and some of it’s many meanings.
