A Message from the Gods

This is a message from Elohim, Yahweh, and Allah!

I got some video motion backgrounds and I used one of them along with Camtasia Studio 8 and PowerPoint 2013 to make some slides, run a slideshow and record this. Camtasia Studio 8 converted the edited files into an mp4 with a smart video player included.

The first slide does not show long enough to be read, so you may want to pause the playback about a second after it starts. The rest of the slides are easy to read.

This video is quite sarcastic, but it reflects how I really feel about religious fanatics and monotheism.

A higher resolution version of this can be found at

I did a Google search for this video and I got the results that are in this screen capture.

Nonsense that Christians Have Told to Me, Part 1

Although I have yet to read any of Zecharia Sitchin's books, I am familiar with some of the things that are contained in those books because they were mentioned in the TV series Ancient Aliens. You can view Zecharia Sitchin's Amazon Author's Page to get a summary of his life and books. When my budget allows me to I will buy and read his books.

People who have not watched the TV series Ancient Aliens or read Zecharia Sitchin's books tend to laugh at me and tell me that I don't know what I am talking about when it is they who don't know what I am talking about! I find this behavior quite annoying!

I have known since the 1970's that a book that tells the same stories as those found in Genesis was written about 1,000 years before Genesis, but I had trouble remembering the name of that book until I had heard it a few times. This book tells about an alien race known as the Anunnaki who lived in Sumer and their creation of a race of slaves that were called the Adamu (worker). This book is called the Epic of Gilgamesh and is basically an earlier, and more accurate, version of Genesis. People who read only the Bible don't know that this book exists or they tend to dismiss it as being uninspired writings because it was not approved by the unbaptized Roman Emperor Constantine when he convened the Council of Nicaea. It was the later Council of Trent that added the Old Testament to the Bible. Again, the Catholics left out any books that were not widely accepted by the early Christians or that contained "too much information". As far as I know, only the Anglican Church accepts The Book of Enoch as scripture.

I have a neighbor who reads only the King James version of the Bible and refuses to admit that it is the least accurate English translation of the Bible! He kept telling me that any mistakes in translating the Bible are none of my business and that I should just believe those mistakes anyways! That is absurd! Although I no longer have the list, the King James version of the Bible contradicts itself and history that was recorded elsewhere in over 600 different places! Newer translations of the Bible have corrected most of these contradictions. 

However, I have known Christians who were upset over these corrections because many of their false doctrines were based upon these translation errors! As new manuscripts are found in the Middle East and are translated into English newer versions of the Bible are published based upon these new discoveries. Generally speaking, the older a Bible manuscript is the more accurate it is considered to be. What very few Christians will admit is that we do not have anything that is in the original handwriting of any Old Testament prophet, patriarch or New Testament apostle! At best, we have third and fourth generation copies of these writings. When errors were made in copying a scroll by hand the errors were not discarded but were set aside. These scrolls that contained errors were later copied as if they were correct. Also, margin notes and foot notes would often be copied as if they were part of the text. These errors were perpetuated for centuries and are just now being corrected. Once again, some people refuse to admit that their beliefs were based upon copying and translation errors and attack those of us who try to teach them the truth!

I will write more about the religious nonsense that I despise in a later post.

What is the Holy Ghost?

I posted this some time ago on Facebook and now I am copying it here. When I get enough material I am going to turn this idea into a report or book that I will sell on Amazon. Here is the article

  1. A couple of days ago I was listening to a recording of a Google hangout. Lisa Garr was interviewing Mary Morrissey. Near the end of the interview, Mary was describing the Internet. She said that there were 7 billion people but one mind. There were 7 billion computers but one Internet. The Internet was everywhere and had the collected wisdom and knowledge of 6,000 years of human experience. It was all knowing and ever present. Does this sound like anyone that we know?

    Mary's description of the Internet is very close to how Christians describe the Holy Ghost! I have long believed that what George Lucas calls "the Force" is what Carl Jung called "the collective unconscious" equals what Brian Tracey calls "the super conscious mind". All of these are synonyms for The Holy Ghost. But, what if The Holy Ghost is not a spirit in the sense that the ghost of a dead person is? What if The Holy Ghost is a network of conscious beings from multiple inhabited worlds that has its own intelligence and thus is also a conscious being in and of itself?

    The Internet that I am using to write and post this is a network of computer networks. No one really owns the Internet, but some people do control access to it. You need some kind of electronic device to access the Internet, but with the correct equipment, there are very few places here on Earth where you can't get a connection. The Internet is everywhere! If you use a search engine correctly you can find an article on almost everything that you want to know. Someone with Internet access can appear all knowing!

    Ever since the days of Joseph Smith, the LDS church has stated that God the Father and his son, Jesus Christ, are two separate and distinct individuals. According to Joseph Smith, the Father and Son both appeared to him in a sacred grove of trees. The Father pointed to the Son and said, "This is my beloved son. Hear him!". Either Joseph was telling the truth or he was lying. Five million Mormons believe that he told the truth. That being the case there are two other possibilities, he either saw something divine or he was tricked. Anti-Mormons believe that Joseph Smith was tricked by the devil because they are still believing in that Holy Trinity nonsense! Joseph Smith's vision, if true, proves that the Father and the Son are both resurrected men with superhuman powers and physical bodies! Each of them can only be in one place at one time! However, the Holy Ghost can be everywhere at once because it is a network that is like our Internet!

    The Internet here on Earth uses electrons, microwaves and other energies that travel at, or just under, the speed of light. In the vacuum of space light travels at 186,282 miles per second! On a small planet like Earth that is incredibly fast! However, when you want to travel from one star to another, or send a message from one star to another one, that is slow! It takes four years for the light from Alpha Centauri to reach the Earth. That is too slow for any Internet connection to work! How do space aliens get around this problem? Enter quantum mechanics!

    I have no clue when or how quantum entanglement was discovered and will need to research this. However, Albert Einstein called it, "spooky action at a distance". Whenever a particle of ordinary matter is created a matching particle of antimatter is also created. No matter how far these two particles are separated, if something happens to one particle then the matching particle will instantly know about it. If electron A changes its spin then positron A will match that change instantly, even if it is 170,000 light years away! Quantum entanglement can make a galactic Internet work! An alien race, say the Klingons, can tap into this Internet and have the collected wisdom of thousands of inhabited worlds going back over millions of years! Throw in some photon torpedoes and phasers and you have a race of "gods" that is all knowing, all powerful and everywhere at once!

My New Book on

Here is a preview of my book that I just published on If you want to read the entire book, you can get it at:

Death, Resurrection and the Afterlife as Found in the Book of Mormon and Other Writings of Joseph Smith, Jr.

It is sold the understanding that the publisher is not engaged in rendering legal, accounting, or other professional services. If legal advice or other expert assistance is required, the services of a competent professional person should be sought.



In this paper I will attempt to explain, briefly, the teachings of Joseph Smith, Jr. concerning death, resurrection, and the afterlife. In order to stay within the intende4 length of the paper, I will deal primarily with the Book of Mormon (B of M). Where the B of M does not clearly cover a subject, I will refer to the other works generally attributed to Joseph Smith, Jr. or reputable commentaries thereon.

Before I begin explaining the doctrines, I will briefly describe each of the works generally attributed to Joseph Smith Jr. and there reported respective origins. First is the Book of Mormon (B of M). The title page, which Joseph Smith, Jr. translated from the plates themselves, best describes what it is.

The Book of Mormon

An Account Written by

The Hand of Mormon

Upon Plates

Taken from the Plates of Nephi

Wherefore, it is an abridgment of the record of the people of Nephi, and also of the Lamanites--Written to the Lamanites, who area remnant of the house of Israel; and also to Jew and Gentile——Written by way of commandment, and also by the spirit of prophecy and of revelation--Written and sealed up, and hid up unto the Lord, that they might not be destroyed—-To come forth by the gift and power of God unto the interpretation thereof——Sealed by the hand of Moroni and hid up unto the Lord, to come forth in due time by way of the Gentile——The interpretation thereof by the gift of God.

An Abridgment taken from the Book of Ether also, which is a record of the people of Jared, who were scattered at the time the Lord confounded the language of the people, when they were building a tower to get to heaven——Which is to show unto the remnant of the House of Israel what great things the Lord hath done for their fathers; and that they may know the covenants of the Lord, that they are not cast off forever——And also to the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that JESUS is the CHRIST, the ETERNAL GOD, manifesting himself unto all nations——And now, if there are faults they are the mistakes of men; wherefore, condemn not the things of God, that ye may be found spotless at the judgment—seat of Christ.


Next is the Doctrine and Covenants of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (D & C). The D&C contain revelations and official proclamations received by or put out by the presidents of the church. Most of these are by or through Joseph Smith, Jr. This book was first published under the title The Book of Commandments. The title was later changed by Joseph Smith Jr.

After Joseph Smith was martyred the church collected several of his writings and published them under the title The Pearl of Great Price (P of GP). The P of GP contains: The Book of Moses, which is Joseph Smith’s retranslation of the first six chapters of Genesis; The Book of Abraham, a translation of a papyrus scroll found with an Egyptian mummy; Joseph Smith- Matthew; Joseph Smith’s translation of Matthew— 23; and Joseph Smith—History an extract from History of the Church Volume I.

In addition, several of the sermons of Joseph Smith, Jr. were recorded by John A. Widstoe. These records were compiled by Joseph Fielding Smith and published under the title, Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith.

Of those listed above, four are canonized scripture and are called the Four Standard Works. They are: 1) the KJV Bible; 2) Book of Mormon; 3) D&C and; 4) Pearl of Great Price. The official doctrines of the Church are found in these works and any other proclamations of the First Presidency of the Church.

Plan of Salvation - The Seven Ages of Mankind


Bruce R. McConkie in his book The Millennial Messiah points out that we cannot correctly understand the teachings concerning death, resurrection and the afterlife unless we understand the entire plan of salvation. We cannot understand the entire plan of salvation unless we gain an eternal perspective on things. McConkie outlines the seven ages of man as follows: First is “Creation and Life as Spirits”. This is also called the premortal existence. This is when the great Elohim created the spirits of all who ever had, do now, and ever will dwell on this earth. This creation included the angels who were cast into outer darkness and the spirit “Son who is the Firstborn,” YHWH. 2

The Book of Abraham, Chapter 3, tells us of this ante mortal state, before the world was created. In it we find that God revealed to Abraham the eternal nature of spirits, pre—earth life, foreordination, the creation, the choosing of a Redeemer, and the second estate of man.

“NOW the Lord had shown unto me, Abraham, the intelligences that were organized before the world was; and among all these there were many of the noble and great ones; And God saw these souls that they were good, and he stood in the midst of them, and he said:

These I will make my rulers; for he stood among those that were spirits, and he saw that they were good; and he said unto me:

Abraham, thou art one of them; thou wast chosen before thou wast born. And there stood one among them that was like unto God, and he said unto those who were with him: We will go down, for there is space there, and we will take of these materials, and we will make an earth whereon these may dwell; And we will prove them herewith, to see if they will do all things whatsoever the Lord their God shall command them; And they who keep their first estate shall be added upon; and they who keep not their first estate shall not have glory in the same kingdom with those who keep their first estate; and they who keep their second estate shall have glory added upon their heads for ever and ever.

And the Lord said: Whom shall I send? And one answered like unto the Son of Man: Here am I, send me, And another answered and said: Here am I, send me. And the Lord said: I will send the first. And the second was angry, and ke not his first estate and, at that day, many followed after him.” 3

Second is the “Temporal Creation and Our Life as Mortals” This is when the physical earth is organized. This is when Michael the Archangel becomes Adam the premortal man. His wife Eve is created and placed in the garden with him to be a helper. They fall and become mortal beings, subject to both spiritual and physical death. 4

In the B of M, 2 Nephi 2:15-25, Nephi tells his sons the story of the creation, how Adam fell, why the fall was necessary, and what would have happened if the fall had not occurred.

 “And now, behold, if Adam had not transgressed he would not have fallen, but he would have remained in the Garden of Eden. And all things which were created must have remained in the same state in which they were after they were created; and they must have remained forever and had no end. And they would have had no children; wherefore they would have remained in a state of innocence, having no joy, for they knew no misery; doing no good, for they knew no sin. But behold, all things have been done in the wisdom of him who knoweth all things. Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.”5

Third is “Redemption and the Age of the Atoning One. This is the meridian of time. This is when Jesus the Christ is born. We were present when the earth was created, Adam fell, the flood of Noah, and again we are present to witness the miraculous birth of our redeemer. We see how he grows up, begins his ministry, is baptized by John in the Jordon River, teaches and works miracles, agonizes in the Garden of Gethsemane, & bleeds and dies for us on the cross. 6

The B of M tells us that Jesus the Christ was known to the Nephite prophets by that name before he was born, that this Jesus Christ is the same one who created the earth, and that he would save us from our sins. In Mosiah 3:8 we read, “And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and his mother shall be called Mary.”

Again in Mosiah we read:

“And because he said unto them that Christ was the God, the Father of all things, and said that he should take upon him the image of man, and it should be the image after which man was created in the beginning; or in other words, he said that man was created after the image of God, and that God should come down among the children of men, and take upon Him flesh and blood, and go forth upon the face of the earth.” 7

Funny True Stories

While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church,
our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made
his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his
playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial
should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton
batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of
the deceased.The minister's son was chosen to say the
appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his
version of what he thought his father always said: 'Glory be
unto the Faaather, and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole

A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was
fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly,
something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and
looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been
pressed in between the pages.'Mama, look what I found,' the
boy called out. 'What have you got there, dear?' With
astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 'I think
it's Adam's underwear!'

A Prophetic Dream

Back in 1978 I was a private in the US Army who lived in the barracks and ate in the mess hall. I had recently joined the LDS (Mormon) church and had a few dates with some of the young women in my ward (the Single Adults Ward). However, I didn't really "click" with anyone at that time. After having a dream about a mermaid I went to the latrine and then prayed to God to reveal to me in a dream whom I should marry. I had had an earlier dream that had left me with the impression that I would marry someone in Tampa and that I would have to wait for her. This time, shortly after falling asleep, I had the following dream.

I saw a photograph of a young woman with glasses and red hair. The glasses had a gold frame to them. I didn't recognize the girl but thought that she was pretty. I also saw a white wall and a white desktop or table top that the photograph was lying upon. I also saw some letters that reminded me of what people would write in a high school yearbook. On the table was a white, studded, vase that had a single long stem red rose in it. That is all of the dream that I can remember.

About a month after having this dream I went on leave from Fort Carson, Colorado to Tampa, Florida. While on my way to Tampa I had the feeling that something was going to happen. I was going to meet the woman that I would marry or maybe even get married. While in Tampa I asked a few girls for dates and they all declined. My sister felt sorry for me and fixed me up with a girl that she knew from her work. When Cathy told me that Shirley had red hair I told Cathy about my dream. Cathy said, "Wouldn't it be funny if you married her?" Well, a few months later I did marry Shirley and it wasn't funny at all!

I married Shirley in June of 1979 in the LDS chapel in Tampa. I spent a few days with her in Florida and then brought her back with me to Colorado Springs, Colorado. While unpacking her things I found a white, studded vase just like the one in my dream! I asked Shirley where she got the vase and she told me that her flowers that I sent to her when I proposed to her came in that vase! The thing is, when I bought the flowers (long stem red roses) I paid for a box, not a vase! The florist that delivered her flowers knew the family and gave me a free upgrade!

I was married to Shirley for almost 11 years but eventually divorced her due to incompatability. We fought way too much! What I still can't figure out is this, if Shirley is the one whom God wwanted me to marry why didn't the marriage work out in the long run? I asked for a wife and I got a wife. Now, when I pray for the perfect wife I don't even get a girlfriend! I have had ONE DATE in the past 11 years! I have spent four fifths of my life single! I'm still clueless about what is going on with the wife situation!

A real comment about this would be appreciated. Spam will just be deleted!

When Was Jesus Really Born?

Most Christians celebrate Christmas on December 25, which is near the Winter Solstace. The Mormon church beleives that Jesus was born in April and I have heard some other people say March. Even so, most Mormons celebrate Christmas in December and also follow most other Christian traditions. I also celebrate Christmas in December, but don't know when Jesus was really born. I'm inclined to go with March because that is what most Bible scholars beleive.
