Explain it, stem.
I just explained it. The issue here seems to be whether there is evidence for any of Joseph Smith' claims. DJ used the example of the 8 witnesses as a means to say it's not really evidence of any of Joseph Smith' claims. I say, Joseph Smith claimed to have had metallic plates that appeared ancient and had writings on them. The testimony of the 8 confirm that. DJ agrees that Joseph Smith probably had some sort of plates. Here, we can see, there is evidence of a claim by Joseph Smith.
Your "nuhuh" responses are inadequate. You rarely offer anything resembling an argument until we prod you to do so.
To be truthful I don't' think many are very serious here at all. They don't pose pertinent arguments, much like that Gadianton guy's post just demonstrated. I know your knee jerk reaction is to complain about my posts, but you don't seem to realize that my post was in response to an absurd post--that didn't pertain to anything I've been saying. I know he's your bud, so whatever.
So, are you registered at Mormon Voices perchance? Is this board an assignment you have taken on?
Do you work for the LDS Church?
I'm just asking, because it almost feels like you are a bad union employee punching the clock or a ward member grudgingly fulfilling an unwanted calling here. Such is the empty, repetitive, nature of most of your responses.
Yes, I often give out what I get in return. The empty, repetitive nature of many of the responses here.
Thanks for noticing, though. I wish I was a better.
