You have lost me big time on the Genesis question. I can't see any room for cohabitation between the science of evolution and " the God created the world in 6 days". From what you are saying, the Mormons believe that both options are possible, but we just don;t know? So basically, Noah's Ark is still a believable story for you (i.e. the mormon church)? To get back on the response from yesterday about the posthumous baptism issue, while I appreciate the Mormons generosity and willingness to have everyone joining them in "heaven", I still find it totally disrespectful and reprehensible, particularly for people of different faith (christian, Jewish or buddhist for instance) who have strong views about their dead and the life after death. Finally, while I agree with you that most if not all religions have their own rather unsavory stories with regard to race relations, I guess we can agree that mormonism may have been the slowest and perhaps the last one of the major organized religions to come to terms with their "shortcomings", (in lack of a better word..) on that matter.
