The Interpreter Foundation’s first birthday is today! (Here’s a brief report.)

 

Happy Birthday to Us!

 

Today is the first birthday of The Interpreter Foundation.  One year ago today, our very first article went online and the launch of Interpreter: A Journal of Mormon Scripture was publicly announced at the conclusion of the 2012 FAIR conference.  (The decision to establish a new online journal had been reached slightly more than a week before.)

 

Interpreter has now now published a total of fifty-six (56) articles or reviews over the course of fifty-three (53) consecutive Fridays, without a single break.  Thus far, these have produced five complete volumes.  A sixth volume is underway.

 

The Interpreter Foundation has also posted thirty-seven “scripture roundtables,” and more — including at least two special-themed roundtables — are coming very shortly.  Additionally, the Foundation offers postings of news, a blog, videos, podcasts, audio formats, and multiple subscription modes, including (but far and away not limited to) print.

 

The Interpreter Foundation has already co-sponsored a symposium on temples (the proceedings of which will eventually be published), several books are in process, and, on Saturday, 9 November, it will host a significant symposium on “Science and Mormonism: Cosmos, Earth, and Man.”  (Seating will be limited at that symposium, and tickets — though free — will be required, so we strongly encourage early registration.)

    I offer my congratulations.

    Congratz! … and the great Mormon apostasy continues to build steam. Your efforts, Dan, have had an enormous effect on membership retention. To applaud your efforts, let’s take a look at the last 12 months:

    Effects of Danny’s and Billy’s insane ramblings:

    1. Romney presidency lost

    2. Mormon Membership numbers continue to decline at a near exponential rate

    3. Embarrassing articles in major newspapers about Mormons.

    Effects of Kore Kosmou’s insane ramblings

    1. Romney presidency lost

    2. Mormon Membership numbers continue to decline at a near exponential rate

    3. Embarrassing articles in major newspapers about Mormons.

    Well, I guess you can call that a tie .. right?

    Like I’ve said many times before: I’m better than you in every way and I’m winning this war. /hugs and /kisses

      Just a note of clarification for those who may be puzzled by the post above: “Kore Kosmou” and “Lance Peters” are among the pseudonyms used by this particular poster, some of whose comments I’ve been obliged to delete because this is a family-friendly blog.

        Dan, I already knew you were an evil overlord, and stuff, but I still would have thought it a bit much to expect for you and your minions to restore sanity to the electorate, reverse the moral collapse of Western civilization, and put to silence a corrupt and sensationalist press in just a single year. I would have guessed it would take at least two or three, minimum. I’m impressed too see how much faith some folks have in you.

      Lance,

      I am not known as a good judge of character but I can tell by your post that you are a compassionate and charitable person without any mental health issues. It is a pleasure to meet you.

      Bob
