Herk replied to Blue Skies's discussion Anyone Come Out and Then Go Back into Hiding?
"There actually has been research done on this. It's been a couple of years since I've read anything new about it so I don't have a link to hand, but I didn't make it up. It may not have been expressed exactly the way I worded it,…"

Herk replied to Michael Campbell's discussion Are Mormons going to kill us?
"The Mormons aren't going to kill us. For one thing, they're a minority. They are looked upon as insane by most Christians. They do not wish to call attention to themselves as a violent sect. And they are not growing at any appreciable…"

Herk replied to Blue Skies's discussion Anyone Come Out and Then Go Back into Hiding?
"Sorry I'm so late to the party. I'm wondering if anyone is addressing the actual problem. Human relationships are sometimes complicated, but also they sometimes have problems that are common. There's this thing called hormones.…"

Herk commented on Jennifer W's blog post Looking up at the stars....
"I've read a couple of Hancock's books, though it's been a long time ago. He's been trying to connect civilizations all over the world into a single source, and one of his rather strange conclusions was to do with Pharaohs flying…"

Herk commented on Jennifer W's blog post Looking up at the stars....
"To David Sensei - it sounds as if you're channeling Graham Hancock. He's a bit of a whack job, what with the Orion theory and so on. He leaps to fantastic conclusions based on little evidence. He has no formal training in archeology. His…"

Herk commented on Larry Huffman's blog post Mormons are Perfectly Content to be Dishonest With Themselves
"Some clarifications: It was not a mummy that Joe translated, it was a funeral scroll, and it's referred to as the Book of Abraham. There were also mummies in the traveling exhibition. Of course, it has nothing to do with Abraham, being only…"

Herk replied to JOEL FERNANDES's discussion Do you consider atheists as your brothers and sisters?
"When some priest wants me to call him, 'father,' I can only laugh. He's not my father. And the honorific is ludicrous. Here's a man who's celibate and who wants to be called by something he could, or should, never…"

Herk replied to Be Aware's discussion What is the Plan?
"I'm encouraged by all the good things that are happening, at least until I realize how much hate and vitriol people have for non-believers. They can tolerate those who believe in something else, but not believing is more than they can…"

Herk commented on Jennifer W's blog post Looking up at the stars....
""When we first started as a species" doesn't seem quite the right way to put it. We didn't start all that science and stuff until about 8,000 years ago. Even the famous Greek philosophers didn't begin to emote until around…"

Herk replied to Michael Campbell's discussion Are Mormons going to kill us?
"I've done a lot of studying about Mormon, since I live in the middle of Mormonland. Calling them happy may be a mistake. There is more prozac use in Utah than anywhere else in the country. (USA) I guess that might make them happy. But Morg…"

Herk replied to SkeptiKat's discussion Dating Sites
"Try OK Cupid. eharmony is known to be not too friendly to non-believers."

Herk replied to Ronin's discussion Angels and Aliens
"People didn't start talking about aliens until their knowledge of the cosmos grew to allow for it. Although thinking that alien encounters could have been interpreted as religious encounters, it appears to me to be simple equivocation. Like…"

Herk replied to Rooker's discussion Need help with Pascal's Wager and the concept of Hell
"Not only do you have to take into account that you may be theorizing about the wrong god, but that its wishes might be different than you think. Perhaps it does not want worship, and hates muling petitioners. Perhaps it is very powerful but does not…"

Herk replied to Adrian's discussion Atheists in Idaho?
"There used to be a group website of atheists in the area, but I think it died due to lack of interest. I know that at least one was from Pocatello. I'm in Blackfoot. There are atheists everywhere, but some aren't joiners."

Herk replied to Undo's discussion MORMONS
""Misspelling Morons" doesn't seem to me to be far from the truth. After all, the word was not unknown during Joe's time. I like to think that using "Mormon" and "Moroni" by adding a letter each was his little…"
