His teachings are the central reason for this sacred Book. Within the Book of Mormon itself evidences are provided which attest to its truthfulness. This includes some of the animals mentioned as well as plants, materials raw and manufactured , culture s , words used and more. The degree of consistency concerning all these topics in our view overwhelmingly indicates that Joseph Smith could not have written the Book of Mormon of his own knowledge. Even the most informed experts of his day would not have known much about the archaeological or other scientific details given in this Book. At age 22, when Joseph Smith Jr. For example some of the plant and animal names were a mystery. Most LDS scholars, recently reporting on the subject, believe that the lands occupied by Book of Mormon peoples were within what is now known as Mesoamerica.

Bountiful and Nahom in the Arabian Peninsula While faith will always be required in our mortal journey, for those interested in moving forward on faith’s rocky path, there are occasional dazzling lights along the way to help us see our way around or over the obstacles we face. Some of the brightest lights giving intellectual support to the Book of Mormon come from the Old World, particularly the Arabian Peninsula, where dramatic finds have added new levels of credibility to the account in First Nephi.
Glaring weaknesses have suddenly become strengths, including the impossibility of finding a “continually running” river 1 Nephi 2: Some of the most important resources on this topic were just published in I especially recommend Warren P. Aston, Lehi and Sariah in Arabia:
Tucked in the Wasatch Mountains, Provo Canyon is known for its abundance of rock climbing, hiking, and biking trails.

History[ edit ] The law of superposition was first proposed in the late 17th century by the Danish scientist Nicolas Steno. Archaeological considerations[ edit ] Superposition in archaeology and especially in stratification use during excavation is slightly different as the processes involved in laying down archaeological strata are somewhat different from geological processes. Man-made intrusions and activity in the archaeological record need not form chronologically from top to bottom or be deformed from the horizontal as natural strata are by equivalent processes.
Some archaeological strata often termed as contexts or layers are created by undercutting previous strata. An example would be that the silt back-fill of an underground drain would form some time after the ground immediately above it. Other examples of non vertical superposition would be modifications to standing structures such as the creation of new doors and windows in a wall.
Superposition in archaeology requires a degree of interpretation to correctly identify chronological sequences and in this sense superposition in archaeology is more dynamic and multi-dimensional.
The Experience of Love and the Limitations of Psychological Explanation
Reynolds wrestles with the church’s stance on same-sex relationships in a new documentary, also called Believer. Interview Highlights On how he began to question the Mormon Church’s stance on same-sex relationships When I was 18, I applied to go to BYU like my six brothers ahead of me — I have eight boys and one girl in my family. All of them went on Mormon missions, all of them went to BYU, and I was the first one in my family who was really on the brink of not getting into BYU.
My grades weren’t quite as good as my brothers’ so I did a lot of after school and I got in by the skin of my teeth. Then, one week before I was supposed to go, I met with a bishop and told him I had sex with my girlfriend of four years, and got kicked out of BYU — and that was a trigger point in my life.

Under current policy, the university investigates students who report sexual assault for violations of the school’s strict honor code , which bans premarital sex, same-sex dating, alcohol consumption and being in the bedroom of someone of the opposite sex, among other things. This means a student who reports a sexual assault could end up being placed on probation, suspended or expelled if BYU finds them to have been in violation of the honor code. The issue came to light after a campus rape awareness event held last week.
The allegations that she violated the honor code stem directly from the police report in her case. Barney told The Huffington Post that she reported an assault to police in late September A month later, she says, she received an email from the university’s Honor Code Office informing her that she needed to set up a meeting with them. The HCO put an academic hold on Barney, meaning that she can’t register for future classes until she participates in a review of the allegations against her.
For now, though, Barney is unable to do that.

I’ve felt a recent urgency to type this up. I’ve had the same feeling the last couple nights to do so. Each night, the feeling has returned more intensely but I just pushed it away. I have now chosen not to ignore that feeling. My original hope was to post this in a month or so with a video.
That has actually been my plan all Summer. However, it looks like plans have changed. So please bear with me and my late night writing.

Islam and Western Culture Navigating Terra Incognita. by Allen W. Palmer, PhD, professor of communications, BYU, and Abdullahi A. Gallab, PhD, professor of .
From the Christian crusades of the Middle Ages to the fatwa on Salman Rushdie at the close of the millennium, the predominately Christian societies of Western Europe and North America have been suspicious and fearful of Muslims. Conversely, Muslim adherents of Islam find much in Western social values and practices antithetical to their tradition. The arena of conflict between these communities is changing rapidly, primarily due to the technological innovations of the information age and the confrontation of cultures.
No longer are geographical boundaries adequate to separate these cultures. At the same time, Muslims of the diaspora are creating religious and cultural enclaves using Arabsat and the Internet, as well as traditional channels. Yet, recent Islamic migrants to Western nations face the dilemma of finding their authentic voice in popular Western culture, balanced against their fears of cultural assimilation and loss of identity.
They seek to know how is it possible to move toward the center of Western culture without compromising deeply-held religious beliefs and traditions. Navigating the cultural conflicts between Islam and the West is not a trivial challenge given sharply contrasting worldviews; the two domains of knowledge are poorly matched.
Islam offers a totalized worldview encompassing all spheres of community intercourse: The West isolates the spheres of knowledge and action and enshrines the individual. The clash that arises from conflicting worldviews leaves emotional and psychological scars. The Islamic world consists of diverse ethnic, cultural, and geographic populations, and faces the challenge of uniting diverse national cultures.
