There was also this one that came after I asked for a link to more information regarding his Mito DNA claim:

No, I'm not getting into this thread-derailing argument again, primarily because you've yet to show me that you can actually think critically about the assumptions you're making about me and any one of my points.

Anything for you Jaxx! Blush Heart

Oh, you're one of the sensitive online atheists. I'll be gentle from now on.

No, I'm defending an accurate representation of it. I couldn't care less what happens beyond that.

99.999999% accuracy would still represent 100% crazy using my logic.

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

Fair enough. It is true that I could very well be making stuff up.

Secondly, unlike you, I don't pretend to know anything about his background.

I admit I'm making an assumption about his background, but it is not an uninformed one. If I am wrong about his exposure to the worldwide Church or to the level of calling he's held, he's welcome to correct me. As I said earlier, in his more measured comments, he did a respectable job of representing what an average Latter-day Saint might believe.

(15-01-2014 01:22 PM)Vosur Wrote:  It's perfectly possible that he has experienced a comparable level of exposure to the global LDS community (prior to his deconversion) for all you know.

It's possible, but I would hesitate to call it plausible, particularly with rather rookie mistakes like calling Kolob a planet that we all lived on in the preexistence. That's Book of Mormon musical-level mischaracterization.

Don't really care. Just care about making sure misrepresentations aren't proliferated.

No just shut up with your condescending attitude.

I presume that roughly translates to "Mormonism is a racist,unscientific,unsubstantiated bullshit ideology"

Dreams/Hallucinations/delusions are not evidence
Wishful thinking is not evidence
Disproved statements&Illogical conclusions are not evidence
Logical fallacies&Unsubstantiated claims are not evidence
Vague prophecies is not evidence
Data that requires a certain belief is not evidence

If that gets your emotional rocks off, presume away.
