Over on the "Oklahoma" thread, Allan "The Dales weren't trying to prove the Book of Mormon true" Wyatt has dropped in to confront Gemli. He, Kiwi, Mr. Migdley, and a bunch of others keep repeating themselves to Gemli, that he needs to learn something about LDS faith before he can criticize it. Do these folks realize that Gemli didn't swoop in to criticize the "LDS faith", but to criticize the blog proprietor's theistic propaganda memes, most if not all, recycled from non-LDS sources and having nothing to do with Mormonism specifically? Do Mormons even know who Alvin Plantinga is or would they even care?
But man, they won't let this go. Gemli just has to learn about LDS beliefs, for some reason.
Mr. Midgley wrote:But how would gemli know what "every believer" thinks gemli needs to know, since he essentially knows nothing about the faith of any Christian believer? gemli spouts rubbish about something he knows next to nothing about. We have been trying to educate him but he refuses to learn a thing. Still, we keep trying, since doing this is part of our faith.

Mr. Midgley wrote:gemli is now desperate, and has stooped to sarcasm. Poor gemli.
He's really biting his tongue over there. Did he misunderstand DCP's behind-the-scenes crackdown on his bad behavior? He can trash Gemli all he wants since Gemli isn't part of this board. Funny though, since unbeknownst to Gemli, he really is on lock-down, and since he can't insult, now he's all, "just look at you stoop to sarcasm like this. what a shame."
There's a .01% chance Gemli will read this, but if so, Gemli, don't fall for it. Don't let them teach you anything about Mormonism. Over here, many of us were Mormons for much of our lives, served missions, went to BYU and all that, but they don't think even *we* know anything about Mormonism. I suppose I'm idly curious, should you show interest in their "faith", what would they teach you? Do they themselves, actually have any firm beliefs that they'd put on record online?
