Exciting new research on the Book of Mormon!!!

Yes, I've just completed some original research on the writing system used on the golden plates. My conclusion? It really is (in a sense) "Reformed Egyptian" just as Joseph Smith claimed. See the story on Main Street Plaza here: Why Reformed Egyptian?

And this fortnight's Carnival of the Godless is (coincidentally enough) the "Peer Reviewed Journal" edition!!! :D

Hey Chanson - are you aware that there's an extremely long spam comment on your entry titled I Now Live In Switzerland.? Might wanna check it out.

Hi CL! I think this needs to be investigated. As a fellow former Mormon, I have a mild interest in the religion. I'm 35 years removed, but still have a few Mormon friends from back in the day.

Hey John!!!

That's cool!!! I didn't realize you were an exmo -- I'll have to add your blog to Outer Blogness!!!

Actually, Outer Blogness is really exploding in size. I'm going to have to do something with it like Mojoey did with the grand atheist blogroll. That's my goal for this week. :D

When I was 3 years old (1956) my mom decided I needed to be going to church. She bought in to what the missionaries told her one day. From then until 1972 I was raised in the church. I was a VERY slow learner, but once I started thinking for myself at about 16 it was only a matter of time...

Once I could see what a bunch of BS the whole LDS thing was, it was a short step to see the same about all the others.
