...curiosity will increase geometrically...????

What does that mean? Increase by squares? angles? circles? triangles?

I think the word is "exponentially".

I think "Binders full of Women" created more curiosity.

The evolution of the 1830's Mormon message to present-day theology has caused more curiosity than an LDS candidacy.
That would only be topped by a Mormon sitting down and answering legit questions about their claims and prophecies.

Binders full of archelogical proof would be far more fascinating.


I cringe at articles like this.

A lot of these comments make me smile. I for one hope that Romney wins and the opportunity is given to the members of the church to "step up to the plate." I know that the church members will handle the extra attention with ease.

I don't quite understand how people who claim to be biblical scholars can say that the LDS church's beliefs are unfounded in scripture and science. Kind of like someone parting the red sea and walking on dry ground. If you have faith that God can do all, then I don't see how our beliefs are "unscientific" or "unhistorical."

I'll take Romney's record on truth telling any day over the campaigner in chief. Benghazi anyone? The lies and coverup are some of the worst in the history of our country.

It is more than likely that little if anything will change if Mr Romney is elected. All politicians talk a good game, but when it comes to push and shove, it's Congress that inevitably makes the changes, if they decide to make any at all. The last 4 years is a testament to what Congressional apathy can accomplish...very, very little.

I only hope that whomever gets elected can apply whatever pressure is needed in whatever circles he can to get the United States back in business. As it is, unless something is done, we're facing 4 more years of a do-nothing Congress, and everyone blaming the President, just because it is an easy thing to do than placing the blame where it lies.

Well, actually it lies with all of US. We allow these shenanigans to go on in Washington year after year, because most are too lazy to get involved in the day-to-day running of our nation. And politicians have grown accustomed to being special...and they're not. They're simply citizens just like us. And we should always remind them of that fact.
