As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Rexburg, Idaho, BYU Student Studies Mormon History and Leaves Cult

    This story is repeated with variations multiple times on the Internet. So many have decided to NO LONGER be willfully deceived by Mormon revisionism. For the "TBMs" truth comes as a shock. They will react by doubling down on their total commitment to official Mormonism, or they will possibly simply compartmentalize new information critical to the cult, putting it on the back burner in some dark recess of their minds. "I'll deal with it later." But others, as this story explains, hate the fact that they were lied to, and so they dig and dig until they find out the whole truth about "mother cult," who has robbed them of so much:

    The former missionary and BYU studient in Idaho tells us what he did:

    Very good article. I understood exactly what he said about feeling like if he stayed in mormonism and at BYU Rexburg it would be injurious to his health. It eventually felt like I was poisoning myself to stay in it any longer. He was wise to get out when he did, at a young age.
    ~ There is life after mormonism, and it's good! Just stay close to Christ.
    ~ You can't follow Christ and false prophets at the same time.
    ~ "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

      I agree. BYU can cause a non-Mormon a lot of turmoil mentally. I once read a book by a Christian gal whose parents sent her to that college, and the colossal challenge she had not folding to Mormon pressure to become a Mormon. Parents who do such things need to wise up.

        My best friend was non LDS and could have attended any college he wanted to. He wanted a serious education, not a party school. He did research on the major universities and chose byu. His non-LDS parents supported his decision. (His dad was a MLB- level baseball player who chose instead to become a chemistry teacher in California)

        My friend loved byu and ended up loving the LDS students who were his peers and who welcomed him. He joined the church and remains glad he did, 40 years later.
