    I have a replica of the printed 1830 (first edition) Book of Mormon; it has 590 pages. The translation of the Gold Plates (through the gift and power of God) took Joseph Smith, Jr. three years. Why so long? Persecution, lost 116 pages, but mostly persecution. Rant all you want, anti-Mormons, it ain’t gonna stop someone, both regular Mormon and someone investigating The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, from having a personal testimony. Anyway, I’d like to hear how long it would take Mr. Patterson to manually copy the Book of Mormon.

    Back in the olden days, everything had to be hand written. And not just the typical writing, but really fancy stuff. Then that Guttenberg guy came along and changed everything..

    Indeed. Such an exercise probably would make you quite knowledgeable on Scripture, and make you think of the printing press as the greatest invention ever.

    One too many ’m’s’ in Mormon.

    Since natural gas is colorless and odorless, the additive methyl mercaptan or ethyl mercaptan is added to make it easy to detect a gas leak. This is a colorless, flammable gas with an extremely strong and repulsive smell. I don’t believe “long distance gas pipelines” have any “additives” placed in the line until it is at the point of sale to the local utility company or to a high volume customer. The long distance pipeline companies gathering, transmission and storage systems are additive free. If the buzzards are used for leak detection, it must be in another country where stringent safety regulations are not in place.

    Vultures love me because I use frangible ammo. Jesus loves me because thats the way he is. Dr says its not my heart but chronic chondritis and turmeric makes it go away.

    If the philosophy holds that anyone who believes a doctrine that I myself do not believe is an idiot, then I should consider a great number of people to be idiots

    I have been to a number of different churches with varying doctrines and dogmas and have yet to find one where everything preached rings true to me
    There is nothing wrong with holding to your own personal beliefs, but to deride the beliefs of another for being different is wrong

    If everyone were required to practice what they preached, there would be a whole lot less preaching going on

    Don’t forget the mine canaries, which were suspended from the ceiling of the mine in cages to detect poisonous substances in the air; if the canary died, everyone got out.

    And if Mr. Patterson was paying attention, it’s probably the last time he opened that book. Half the atheists I know started their journey by studying the “Truth” of their holy books.

    Reading that book was a huge waste of time- even a bigger waste of ink and paper copying it! His time is apparently worthless.

    “not fiction”

    Supposedly, the King James bible is a condensed version, with many books left out.

    No one else saw the plates. Though supposedly when he was a boy he stumbled across them then an angel appeared telling him to bury them again and forget till it was time.

    Considering how often the Bible is published, it seems like a ridiculous waste of time to hand copy it.

    and here we have the religious trolls today. Base your life on GOLD plates found in the woods. I don’t think so. I read your book and it is full of obvious holes. I found some plates of Platinum from God with the truth but was told not to reveal what is said till i am told or I will perish.
