So, the author is Bird? or Bell? This sounds interesting. I've been there, felt
that it was significant and important...but I really don't know specifically
Can anyone tell me what (nf) means? On each of these book reviews, I see the
title, author, publisher, number of pages and (nf). No forward? (that's my best
guess) Not fun? Nothing fabulous?
>Bell taught seminary and institute for the LDS Church Educational System for
37 years and was manager of seminary curriculum.<Who is Bell?
I know that nobody wants to talk about this, but the site has astronomical
significance per Masonry, either accidental or otherwise. Does anyone know if
this book covers that?
Adam-ondi-Ahman was one of those nonsensical words JS invented. If one
seriously analyzes and divides the word into 3 segments, one can understand what
JS was thinking, as follows:JS took the word "Adam" and
the word "man" (which ironically mean the same thing) and then
sandwiched the word "Onidah" (taken from Alma 32:4 and 47:5) and then
transposed the "i" and the "d". Thus resulted a nonsensical
fabricated word and a pseudo-historical location, even though Onidah was an
actual hill in the land of Antionum in the BOM (present-day NW South America).
@SR71, (nf) stands for non-fiction.
Saying this is Non Fiction is beyond hilarious.
Hi Michigander. Hawaiian lyrics sound especially melodic because the Hawaiian
language relies heavily upon three vowel sounds. Limited vowel ranges are
characteristic of isolated languages, and the BOM populations were certainly
isolated, so thank you, you have given me another proof of the BOM! Today we
studied the Liahona. The Ancient Roman author Cicero described a mechanical
celestial calendar-and-more that was a "solid and compact globe,... a very
ancient invention." No one is sure of its practical use(s), but it is
possible that it helped the Ancients navigate on land and sea to find certain
distant locations, such as India, Timbuktu, Adam-ondi-Ahman, Missouri, or other
legendary places. Check it out on Wikipedia's Antikythera Mechanism entry. No
one thought that the Ancients had metal gears in Joseph's day. Maybe it was just
a lucky guess, or maybe... naw, you wouldn't want to pray about something so
or (nf) could stand for "no footnotes."
@ garybeac, thank you very much for the information on ancient computers. I am
very happy that I unknowingly gave you another proof of the BOM (which I also
believe in 100%), even though Adam-ondi-Ahman remains a fantasy location of JS's
imagination, ala Peter Pan and Never-Never Land.
Oldcougar.It's said to be where Christ will appear as he descends
from heaven out of the East during his 2nd coming and will be greeted by every
prophet that ever lived upon the earth and who will be gathered there together
from Adam and all the ancient prophets such as Noah and Moses... the Book of
Mormon prophets including Lehi, his son Nephi on down to Alma, Mormon and
Moroni. and the modern day dispensation of prophets as well from Joseph Smith
and Brigham Young to David O. Mckay, Spencer W. Kimball, Thomas S. Monson and
including the living prophet of that day. It's located on the west side of Hwy
13 and looks out over the Grand River just 6 miles North of Gallatin Missouri
which is noted for being the first place in the United States where Women were
first given the right to vote...largely do to the large populations of Saints
who lived there in Daviess County at the time. I spent part of my Childhood
growing up in the little town of Lock Springs and worked on my Uncles farm which
is only 7 miles south east as the crow flies on Hwy 6.
