I feel a lot of remorse for Simon's mother and his late father,along with his beautiful sisters. He has also tainted his brother,s beleifs with these foolish comments. I also feel remorse for Jane and her special family.

I only pray that Simon will pour out his soul to his Heavenly Father and ask Him to show him the correct and trueb path, so that can alter his beliefs to that what is true, so he may be exalted along with all of his loved ones, especially with his Mum and Dad, (who I never had the pleasure to meet), throughout the eternities.

It is good

He has his right to his own opinion about DNA. I am not in the least bit surprised. There is new evidence showing up all the time.


Thank you Graham for reaffirming my choice to get out because of so much compartmentalization within. This coupled with the church's actions for getting rid of those that speak the truth regarding not only inconsistencies but flat out falsehood instead grasping at events from 5 years prior.

It seems that only in the church can one not be the best fork lift operator or scientist if one commits a "sin." Sorry folks, a good fork lift operator is still a good fork lift operator even if he commits adultery just as a good scientist is a good scientist if he commits adultery. The facts are the facts regardless. The D.N.A. doesn't hold up.

Odd, isn't it, that regarding Mormons history and specifically D.N.A., scientists don't hold F.A.R.M.S. as credible? Oh wait, it isn't odd at all.


It is sad to hear of such social injustice in the world today. It is reminicent of the inquisitions of the middle ages. The church should encourage the search for truth, and the progress in science, and not punish members who pursue it.
