How come there isn't any threads on Mormon History, like the Book of Abraham, Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith's life, or great intellectual discussions on so many great topics, etc., etc. in the don't miss hall of fame? I just don't get it. There have been some rather epic, interesting and informative threads about such topics. Why aren't they listed there?

Any suggestions people? Really, I've been checking for years and nothing has been added. Maybe some suggestions (again) will help.

Amen to that.

You'd think some of the more informative and scholarly threads would be showcased in a tab where they could be easily accessed. The search function on this board is practically useless. I have to use Google god to find anything of consequence on Mormon Discussions.

The Book of Abraham is most assuredly a thorn in the side of the church.

Just send Dr. Shades a note with your nomination. I got DarthJ's BoM-in-Italy thread added.

I nominate this thread "William Law VS Joseph Smith"

If you haven't read it yet then it is well worth the read.

My point wasn't to get any of my threads in the Hall of Fame, my goodness there are so many others that qualify. For example, I had started a thread on this before and there was a VERY GOOD list, but I can't find that thread now. Here are a few I mentioned that I recall,

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19831 (Don Bradley's Kinderhook Bomb with 25, 588 views ... is that some kind of record?)

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=14231&start=63 (Zub Zool Oan and Abraham 1:2b-3 with

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=30431 (Calling All Apologists on the Mattson Matter with 11,550 views)

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1194 (For Coggins-Sources about Fanny Alger affair with 11, 485 views)

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=35452 (Coming to Grips With Brigham and Race - Russell Stevenson with 9228 views)

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=34085 (GA's can't/won't heal the afflicted? with 10, 442 views)

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=40206 (Does Intelligence Necessitate God? with 9253 views)

I'm sure more could be added but these are all EPIC threads which I think qualify as "Hall of Fame". I just think that Hall of Fame could be expanded a bit and these threads are all well worth the read. I mean, my William Law thread is interesting, but it didn't get the INTEREST that all of of these did, which I think should be a big part of qualifying for Hall of Fame. Just saying.

Dr. C... what are the chances that Shades will read this thread? I think pretty high.

Grindael, I’m confident that Shades reads every thread.

Cam, I don’t understand your objection to this thread. It gives folks other than Grindael a chance to chime in with their suggestions.

I'm sure it wasn't your point, but I sent the thread to Shades PM box because I felt it was Hall of Fame worthy and he agreed with me. :biggrin:

I think if you send all of the above threads to him in his PM box then there's a good chance they will be added to the Hall of Fame and I'm looking forward to reading up on them and the thread that Mak suggested. Thanks for the recommended reading and don't be shocked if more of your posts end up in the Hall of Fame Grindael.

You know what? I don't see the 2nd Watson Letter thread in there. I think that one, which has been referenced quite a bit, ought to be included. I'll have to find it and nominate it. I think it's worthy of inclusion.

I've made a major update and re-work to the Hall of Fame post. Hopefully you'll enjoy the format more. I didn't have time to skim and evaluate all of the links in Goldenbrass's post above, so more entries may be forthcoming.

If anyone can supply me with links to parts III and higher of "A Novel in Seven Parts" by Bob Bobberson, then that will be helpful.

That was a great one Doc. (Watson Letter) And yes, I did message Shades :cool: It's always good to cover all your bases. Thank you, and from his quick response to the Watson Letter nomination, your suggestion seems to work very well. :wink:

I agree with Moksha. That whole thread (and other related 2nd Watson Letter comments here and there) really underscored just how dishonest and insular Mopologists like Mr. Peterson were. Lying through their teeth and then lying about lying was really an eye opener regarding just how hollow and self-serving their character is.
