    NHL Hockey

    I know you Americans don't much pay attention to hockey, despite having most of the teams and buying the Canadian talent:lol: But as Canadian I am a huge hockey fan, go Sens go (I pray for the day the Nordiques return)...loathe Colorado Today, on topic, I was chatting about hockey as we Canadians are poised to do:lol: and the topic of teams in desert cities came up, and I made the joke of "where's the next tea, gonna be, Salt Lake City? Would they be called... Salt Lake Mormons, Utah Mormons?" Everyone thought that sounded cool so I designed jersey's (home, away, alt) and will probably use my emulator to put them into nhl 96 strange where conversations when in a cornfield can go
  2. Do you believe in Creationism, or do you believe in Evolution. I believe in Evolution, though I think if there is a God, the moment our universe came into being was its doing, and everything perhaps that has transpired. Evolution, dinosaurs, the dawn of man...I always felt creationism sort of made God look less divine, seemed like a primative human's explenation for creation when the reality was so much grander and much more worthy of a divine power, at least I think so.

    I wonder...

    I wonder why other drinks don't come in the tall Arazona cans (Arazona is an iced tea though they do have a fruit punch-which I have right now-and it comes in these massively tall cans, I think Beer comes in cans this big too... wish like Mountain Dew came in them too).

    What do you think it means to be a man then? I'm generally curious.
  5. Very true, everyone I know is an athiest and wouldn't support such thinking.

    Not totally sure where to find that, so was responding to what was written in the thread. Don't feel its nessisary to read it to ponder gender roles and the values of different countries. Was there a video of this... is it on one of the LDS' sites...What's a Church Coordinating Council anyways?

    What if you don't live in America, Canada has different values then America, the UK has different values, France, Germany, etc... I agree with them in that I don't believe gender is predetermained in the pre-mortal existance if such a thing exists. While I think the other gender names sound a bit silly, it doesn't bother me at all. Why should there be a "gender distinction" I certainly don't follow what it means to be a man most of the time, I collect dolls and dislike most sports and have really always been this way. There was no drive for me to like go out hunting or play football. It was never pushed on me I was simply allowed to like what I wanted, and that's what I chose. What evidence to you have, you claim to have a lot of it...

    I get grouchy and stuff! Oh and if faith is " is not to have a perfect knowledge of things" why do so many religious folk say they know instead of believe.

  11. reading?! why start it off on the most boring foot lol I kid, though I do wonder if I would do any reading...I mean the people who write these books certainly don't envision people like me existing, or getting married. The crazy such as myself are seldom successful at it, but I'd read President Kimball's book anyway, wouldn't hurt.
  12. No I'm just saying I'd trust a person I knew a little more if I knew them. Someone could always poison me no matter how much they know me.
  13. I couldn't imagine any scenario where I could sleep in the same room as someone I didn't know really well and trust them not to murder me in my sleep

    Cross on the High Plains

    What does that even mean?!

    Cross on the High Plains

    I don't know if I see it that way, I know they think Christians are "simple minded and oppressive" (amongst many things) from my personal experience as one... Canadians seem to have less beef with them since there are so many more non believers (yours is like at 4% ours is at like 23% or something, don't quote me) Also something interesting to note about Canada and the US in terms of religious people, many will say they are Catholic or whatnot, but never actually go to church (my dad's side of the family is a good example, while they are all God believing people, none of them ever go to church apart from Weddings or Baptisms or the like). Growing up to me and people I knew, lot of the Christian things (church, bible study) were weird things you see on tv. No one you knew went to church, people from other countries went there, but no one you knew ever went. The Bible was a book with a few stories you'd heard and it had Jesus but no one ever read it. Even in Catholic school, no one ever went to church on their own, you went a few times with your class as some sort of sick joke field trip, but that was the only time I ever saw a church before I went as an adult per general curiosity. I certainly don't think the US has that sort of "meh" attitude about religion.

    It's hard to be LDS

    I mean was, some people just want to go to church and like go home, not get callings and all the other stuff LDS has that most churches don't have. But there is religion without culture and culture without religion.

    That won't really help since Canada does it differently then the US, so I felt it was simply easier to ask people who live in the US, vs reading some broad ideas on wikipedia or something. As I mentioned Canada isn't the sort of place to have giant crosses on public property (they might exist but I've never seen any and I'm pretty well traveled) example- it doesn't say "In God we trust" on our money (only reason I think God is in the national anthem is we probably have no idea what to replace it with that flows lol) but our anthem is weird since sometimes its sung half french-half english and I won't get into that.

    Divorce rate lower than we thought?

    Oh yes sometimes they are better then the article itself!

    I think some people just want a religion not a culture.
