    Here.

    Or would you have to report that as associating with apostasy?

      BTW, the site is managed by LDS members and everything is written by LDS members. No... it is not an anti site.

        Thanks for this link.  I went and read a few pages.

        Please someone tell me why this picture does not deserve to be ridiculed?

        Joseph would put a stone in a hat, then burying his face in the hat he would proceed to dictate the Book of Mormon to the scribe.  Joseph claimed to see in the darkened hat the words he dictated. The gold plates were either always covered in a cloth, where no one including Joseph could even see them or they were not even in the room at the time Joseph was translating.  
        If "God" is so powerful that he can create all this magic an wizardry, why doesn't he simply cause a Holy Book to appear in my own hands at this very minute?   I would certainly become a believer, and so would everyone could  hold  a magically appearing book.  If "god" would be so kind as to just snap his fingers or wiggle his nose or whatever he did to create heaven and earth, this whole matter would be resolved in an instant.

        The ONLY reason any church exists is to concentrate power into its members and especially into its heirarchy.    This is what makes the magic necessary.  Without the magic, the Pope and the Temple would be unneeded.   No Power, No Glory.    

        I cannot believe that ANY god could allow these corrupt institutions to speak in HIS name, when a wave of his magic wand could give each of us our own miracle whenever we asked for it.

        Religion gives men the strength to do what should not be done.
