The word Mormon rhymes with Norman. Likewise, the word Mormal rhymes with normal. So at the heart of things, you've got "Morm" on one hand and "norm" on the other hand, meaning that, with a few minor adjustments, "Mormon" is really close to "normal" and normal is not weird. In fact, if you spell normal backwards, you get the name Lamron, which is so much like a name from the Book of Mormon that you almost can't believe that it's not in the Book of Mormon. Coincidence? I thinketh not. - 03/25/2010 - by Gorspel Dacktrin

Mormonism is not a system, but a surviving culture. It is junkyard of doctrinal fragments resulting from historically recorded wrong turns, head-on cultural collisions, and personal breakdowns that satisfy "institutional" needs. To make it a workable Faith, we have to fill in the blanks. We pick up the pieces here and there and try to salvage our relationships as best we can; we lie to ourselves; we haywire a few "historical" parts together, "normalizing" everything with unrelenting repetition, and call the result, a "testimony." - 09/28/2006 - Matt Berry at Recovery from Mormonism

"Mormons--a gaudy story by itself. Joseph Smith, son of an itinerant ginseng merchant and great-great-grandson of a Salem witch-hunter, dreams a Bollywood spectacular of lost tribes, golden plates, and sacred stones; dictates a 275,000-word book of revelation; ordains his own apostles in a fertility-worshiping mystery cult; and leaves behind 50 wives when he's defenestrated in 1844 by vigilantes in Carthage, Illinois.

How did Jeremiah get into the Brass Plates of Laban? Jeremiah was, in the eyes of Jerusalem's elite, a heretic and traitor of the worst stripe. He prophesied the destruction of Jerusalem and the victory of Babylon. So, how did the writings of such a man end up in the Brass Plates, alongside the works of such revered prophets as Moses and Isaiah? It's like finding a copy of The Unabomber Manifesto bound into a bible between Luke and John.
My solution: Laban was handed a tract by some well-meaning traitor. He thumbed through it for a moment, then handed it to Zoram with the instructions of "Burn this blasphemous filth." But the Lord made Zoram hear, "Transcribe this into our most holy Scriptures, that these truths may be treasured up unto the LORD." - 05/31/2000 - Bryce Anderson

By admitting that the Book of Mormon is essentially "true fiction," one may assert that any number of works, "religious" or not are from God. Then how would some determine the criteria for what is of God and what isn't?

The LDS Church abuses the word "testimony". In court, a testimony is giving what you know based on your observation. It is not a plant or a pet or something that "grows" and needs to be worked on. In fact, working on your testimony in a legal context could be perjury! If you view an accident, you testify on it based on your own personal account, not by reading other statements and weighing them against your own. Building a testimony sounds somewhat illegal to me. - 01/18/2000 - SwedenDC
An investigator - who seems to be very sympathetic to the Mormon message - commented that Joseph Smith was very likely a true prophet because true prophets have always been hated and persecuted, and Joseph Smith certainly was hated and persecuted. So...
- True prophets are persecuted;
- Joseph Smith was persecuted;
- Therefore Joseph Smith was a true prophet.
I suggested to him that we could also then reason as follows:
- Liars, scoundrels and con-men are persecuted;
- Joseph Smith was persecuted;
- Therefore Joseph Smith was a liar, scoundrel or con-man.
He didn't get it. I am going to suggest that he get baptized and start paying and obeying. - 01/17/2000 - Richard Packham

People who would believe an 18-year-old missionary (and the magical promises that the LDS Church makes) are probably not the people who would accept fact and historical evidence. Thus, an approach to fact, historical evidence, and logic would not reach these people.
On the other hand, an approach that relies on logic, fact, and history would affect someone who beleives that truth is more important than emotion. Such people are a small minority, with the much larger majority going toward emotion and quick, magical solutions that the church relies on. - 01/12/2000 - Don W

Last summer during a family reunion I was driving one car in a caravan of about 5 cars all stuffed with True Believing Mormon relatives. We were near Cedar city, Utah, and were all keeping in touch via CB radios. My dad (TBM but with a sense of humor), in another car told this joke, directed at me:
"Kelly, why do you always take 2 Mormons with you when you go fishing"? (If you have not heard this joke before, the punch line is: If you take only one, he will drink all of your beer.)
Though I'd previously heard the joke and knew the expected punchline, I was immediately inspired to exclaim over the radio, to 30 or so TBM ears:"So that you're garanteed that at least SOMETHING will take the Hook, Line, and Sinker"!
...Complete silence on the radio. - Kelly Anderson

The LDS are not in a position to engage in a factual debate. In the end they will always have to make some kind of subjective appeal. One such subjective appeal is to quote Joseph Smith in a repetitive fashion. Any factual objection to a quote is simply met with yet a different quote from Joseph Smith. And so forth. This is a fool-proof procedure since it requires no special training and there's no risk since there's no conceivable way one can fail at it providing one sticks to the procedure. - 07/15/1999 - Randy J
To "testify" was based on men in the Roman court swearing to a statement made by swearing on their testicles.

It's ironic to me that I have learned more about Church history through this website than I ever did in my 20 years of attending Gospel Doctrine classes. Don't feel bad, 95% of what I know about Mormon history has come in the last 3 years, after I stopped going to church. Now that I am hearing the full story I am absolutely fascinated. Why couldn't I have had you guys as my teachers! - 07/12/1999 - Randy J

Keeping in mind the "tons" of anti-materials (incl. print-media) then the Catholic Church, Communism, Faschism etc. ought to be "truer" than Mormonism! LDS even try to have the world monopoly on being pursued by the armies of satan. (James and this reply by Dan)Yes, I'd say killing six million jews makes judaism very high on the truth through persecution scale. - 07/10/1999 - anon
