And it gives us the sense that we are not alone on this journey. Currently it is 1 AM on a Friday morning, September 15th, I was trying to fall asleep but I couldn’t. 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.

Oaks, Quorum of the 12 Apostles. Critics’ Arguments Latter-day Saints are repeatedly encouraged to rely on a witness of the spirit i. Holy Ghost to personally authenticate the truthfulness of the origins and content of the Book of Mormon. Given constant encouragement from general and local leaders of reliance on supernatural manifestations a testimony over testable claims, it is not surprising that many faithful Latter-Day Saints seem unfazed by empirical evidence or the lack of it contradicting Book of Mormon claims, whether the research is conducted by Mormon or non-Mormon archaeologists and historians.

Of even greater concern is that many faithful LDS members, by virtue of the admonition of their leaders mentioned above , are not even aware of the perplexing problems contained in the Book of Mormon text. As a result, they are usually unable to effectively dialogue with critics without resorting to faith-based claims in a testimony which carry no authoritative weight for the many dedicated experts in the fields of archaeology, history, linguistics, genetics, etc.

This page details some problems that arise by accepting the Church-sanctioned teachings of the origin and content of the BOM as well as responses to those problems from the LDS Church, apologists and devout members.

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

This book, a record of the biblical prophet and patriarch Abraham, recounts how Abraham sought the blessings of the priesthood, rejected the idolatry of his father, covenanted with Jehovah, married Sarai, moved to Canaan and Egypt, and received knowledge about the Creation. The book of Abraham was first published in and was canonized as part of the Pearl of Great Price in The book originated with Egyptian papyri that Joseph Smith translated beginning in Many people saw the papyri, but no eyewitness account of the translation survives, making it impossible to reconstruct the process.

The relationship between those fragments and the text we have today is largely a matter of conjecture. Read More… We do know some things about the translation process. The word translation typically assumes an expert knowledge of multiple languages. Joseph Smith claimed no expertise in any language. The Lord did not require Joseph Smith to have knowledge of Egyptian. By the gift and power of God, Joseph received knowledge about the life and teachings of Abraham. On many particulars, the book of Abraham is consistent with historical knowledge about the ancient world.

But even this evidence of ancient origins, substantial though it may be, cannot prove the truthfulness of the book of Abraham any more than archaeological evidence can prove the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt or the Resurrection of the Son of God. According to the book of Abraham, the covenant began before the foundation of the earth and was passed down through Adam, Noah, and other prophets. Life did not begin at birth, as is commonly believed.

Early days[ edit ] Brigham Young University’s origin can be traced back to when a man named Warren Dusenberry started a Provo school in Cluff Hall, a prominent adobe building in the northeast corner of East and North. Warren Dusenberry served as interim principal of the school for several months until April when Brigham Young’s choice for principal arrived—a German immigrant named Karl Maeser.

In about four years after my father’s arrival in Palmyra, he moved with his family into Manchester in the same county of Ontario Some time in the second year after our removal to Manchester, there was in the place where we lived an unusual excitement on the subject of religion.

It commenced with the Methodists, but soon became general among all the sects in that region of the country. Indeed, the whole district of the country seemed affected by it, and great multitudes united themselves to the different religious parties, which created no small stir and division amongst the people, some crying, ‘Lo, here! In the midst of this war of words and tumult of opinions, I often said to myself:

Those who have received this award in past years have stood here to express their gratitude to BYU, but I feel especially blessed in receiving this award as a non-Mormon. This university has insisted on valuing me regardless of my religious minority status.

I think this is a sort of minor miracle. I have long desired to actively interface the sacred and the secular—the sacredness of my faith and the secularity of my discipline of psychology—but there are few places that permit this work. BYU, however, has not only welcomed this type of scholarship but also encouraged and facilitated it. For this reason, I have never had to compartmentalize my Christianity away from my discipline; I have been able to integrate the two—which has been an incredible blessing to me!

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.
