Names, Faces, and Hints of What’s Coming

The bios and abstracts for the rapidly approaching 9 November Interpreter Foundation conference on Mormonism and science are now available online:


This is going to be a very good conference.

A very nice day in every regard (some of it confidential)
"Ending Tax Exemptions Means Ending Churches"

    There is such a need to have insights from Latter-day Saints who know science and the gospel, I hope this conference will be recorded and made widely available. I could have really benefitted from it when I was a junior high school student trying to reconcile what I was learning about physics, cosmology, geology, paleontology and biology with what I was learning at church and in seminary, in a ward where people who understood science were few and far between. Our youth should not have to wait until they enter BYU or an Institute to find out these insights.

    No, I’m afraid that was not me. It sounds like something Hugh Nibley might have said. If he did, I think I can see what he might have been getting at. In a literal sense, though, I think it would be an exaggeration.

    • Scott W. Clark

      You might be referring to what he said about Abraham’s sons by Keturah. I don’t have the cite with me but it was something about them and Western civilization. But that’s as far as my memory goes.

        This is responding of course to the post up above not Dan’s.
