    Of the two you specifically mention, I'm admittedly biased in favor of Ancient Near Eastern Studies insofar as there are numerous crossovers between that and reconstructing the sociohistorical and...

    I'm not so sure how well that theory of yours will hold up given the fact your interlocutor, indeed most of the regular posters on this forum, are well aware of my agnostic/secular views and that I...

    Thanks for the feedback... and virtual rep, courtesy of the computer nanny's control over the doling out of actual rep, is cool, too! :)



    Perhaps, but, as you already anticipate, probably not...

    "I spake openly to the world; I ever [posted] in the [threads], and [on] the [forum], wither the [Mormons] always resort; and in secret have I said nothing." (John 18.20 EHV)

    Kind regards,...

    Thanks NRA-Jeff and mathonihah for your interest in the thread and recommendations. I've never seriously thought of getting involved in and/or publishing in this area. I do not mean to be flippant...

    If it is economically feasible and you are passionate about a particular area of learning, I would highly recommend it... though with reservations on your use of the word "need" (people can and do...

    Viewing in threaded mode, you've responded to my post, but the content of yours bears no relation to anything I've stated in this thread (or anywhere on this forum, for that matter). For the record,...

    Thanks... and as a starving student -- well, close enough -- I'd sure be appreciated of any remuneration. Cash, checks, money orders, PayPal, major credit cards (except for Amex) are all good... oh,...

    I'll take that as 'no' and 'no'...:(

    Yes... the narratives involving a pregnant and mistreated Hagar (Genesis 16) and, later, the banished Hagar and the infant Ishmael (Genesis 21) are particularly illustrative in this respect.

  12. A Critical Response to "And it came to pass" in the Book of Mormon

    A couple of weeks ago, one of our LDS friends posted an argument here concerning occurrences of the phrase "And it came to pass" in the Book of Mormon. It was suggested that critics who might...

    Is it safe to assume that when the reverse occurs -- a woman's husband to whom she has been sealed for eternity dies and she remarries -- that this union cannot involve an eternal sealing, otherwise...

    Presumably because the OP contained reference to it as "sacred" and it is a practice that quite a few of us here on this board are critical of because it produces -- as practiced by LDS historically...

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I'm still struggling with your choice of the word 'sacred', though I suppose it can carry the connotation of simply distinguishing between things that are 'religious'...

    I admit to finding the above assertion puzzling. In what way is polygamy "sacred" for contemporary LDS? Its practice, indeed even arguing for its practice, is grounds for excommunication...

    Welcome back... haven't seen you posting in quite some time. Hope you're doing well. Would you like to pick up on our discussion from the second week of July (linked here)? Were you able to get hold...

    As I just pointed out in a post yesterday here, I read comparatively few of the posts here... and yet, even I have noticed that you spend an inordinate amount of time on the topic of women wearing...

    Thanks... you, too.

    I missed this the first time you posted it... I suppose because I was busy reading your posts to me here (posted fourteen minutes earlier) and here (posted six minutes later). The timing was, at the...

    You're welcome and agreed with respect to the bottom line, at least what I've included in the quote box above. :)

    Close enough. :) The name of Israel's god is יהוה, known as the Tetragrammaton. Its pronunciation is unknown due to superstitious avoidance of speaking it, but is typically vocalized Yahweh in modern...

    No, it doesn't. אלהים (elohim) is simply the Hebrew words for "gods"... often used as a plural of majesty to designate a single god, typically (given the focus of the Hebrew Bible) the god of Israel,...

    We obviously have different ideas about how circumstances, which are a combination of external and internal factors and thus unique to each individual, relate to the possible range of one's...

    Perspective, of course, is always anchored in a particular set of circumstances... and if you knew mine, you'd know why I responded as I did. What I find somewhat humorous about your interjection...
