long ago ideas

“When we are tired, we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago." - Friedrich Nietzsche. Long ago, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery conquered false claims that the Book of Mormon was fiction or that it came through a stone in a hat. But these old claims have resurfaced in recent years. To conquer them again, we have to return to what Joseph and Oliver taught.

Earthquake in North Carolina

Yesterday there was an earthquake in North Carolina that surprised a lot of people.


It reminded me that a lot of people don't realize that the Midwestern United States has significant earthquake potential.

The area of eastern Tennessee, which I think is the land of Nephi, and the Mississippi River valley where the Ohio River converges are both earthquake zones. This encompasses the areas I consider to be the land of Zarahemla and the land Bountiful.

Speaking of earthquakes, the other day I visited the construction zone on Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

They are reinforcing the temple for better earthquake protection.

If you're in Salt Lake, it's worth a visit.
