    He does have text in white that says "Of course this is all Mormon nonsense".
    Safka, you are NOT "unknown", you were loved by many, and you will not be forgotten. I will always remember you Puginator.

    Good eyesight, Cerebrum.

    I figured Darfius was not one to argue with Mormon theologians, since he loves to quote from them.

    I figured there was enough in the context to make it obvious that they were Mormon.

    Well, my eyesight is only good when wearing glasses, and even then not as good as it used to be. I'm more surprised they didn't see it in the quote since that highlights it a bit.

    I must be dumb as all get out. Could have sworn that citing 2 Nephi would have been a dead give-away.

    Not to mention the brass plates and the ten lost tribes fleeing to beyond the Caucasus Mountains (where they would become Caucasians).

    What evidence do you have that this chapter refers to the Babylonian exile? It's also a taunt drafted by God specifically to humiliate a certain individual. I know you preterists don't think understanding God's word is "particularly relevant" while you assign all manner of arbitrary "symbolism" to the text, but my point is that a carelessness with accurate interpretation is the source of your error.

    I was waiting for someone to suggest that the king in question was Sennacherib, but he was not destroyed on the mountains of Israel. So it can't be him.

    That he would be destroyed? It's a song of taunt, it's hyperbole...
    What is hyperbolic about stating the location of his destruction?

    The Pagan Priesthood of Rome. Keeping alive emperor worship, and worship of the Roman Gods.
    Is this something all preterists agree on or are you just making stuff up as you go along? What miracles did the "pagan priesthood of Rome" perform to fool the masses? When was the "pagan priesthood of Rome" captured alive and thrown into the lake of fire?

    I quoted Joseph Smith once as an expert on the occult, in fact. It was not a positive citation. I know this is asking a lot of a preterist, but try to have a little integrity.

    The only post in this thread so far that has lacked integrity is your first response in post #6. I'm not sure you understand the meaning of the term.
    I want something good to die for to make it beautiful to live.
