The moon is probably more likely to have some life than a random planet.
One theory is that the moon was formed after the earth was hit by a large object. If this happened while life was on earth, some could have been transferred.
Now, there are not too many(maybe none) Earth lifeforms that would survive and reproduce on the surface of the moon. Underground could be a different story...
You mean, they are contaminating our precious bodily fluids?
That explains a lot.
I would also be suspicious of the fact that there is no atmosphere, no vegetation, no oceans, and no Mickey D’s...
There might be cable TV, but I kinda doubt it.
The moon doesn't even have caddies up there and that's been proven.....
No cable internet? No way I'd live on the moon, I ain't going back to dial up.
I hear ya!
Wireless DSL here.
Not fiber optic speed, but way better than dialup.
Recently got done downloading 3,685 MB from work. It was spread out over about 3 days.
According to a survey done by LDS author R. Clayton Brough, 4 percent of the LDS population believes in the hollow earth theory and that it is a probable explanation for the location of the lost 10 tribes.
Well, you just roundly refuted the words of Oliver Huntington concerning the revelation by Joseph Smith. Now, how about this from BRIGHAM YOUNG?
from Brigham Young:
“I will tell you who the real fanatics are: they are they who adopt false principles and ideas as facts, and try to establish a superstructure upon, a false foundation. They are the fanatics; and however ardent and zealous they may be, they may reason or argue on false premises till doomsday, and the result will be false. If our
religion is of this character we want to know it; we would like to find a philosopher who can prove it to us. We are called ignorant; so we are: but what of it? Are not all ignorant? I rather think so. Who can tell us of the inhabitants of this little planet that shines of an evening,
called the moon?
When we view its face we may see what is termed “the
man in the moon,” and what some philosophers declare are the shadows of mountains. But these sayings are very vague, and amount to nothing; and when you inquire about the inhabitants of that sphere you find that the most learned are as ignorant in regard to them as the most ignorant of
their fellows. So it is with regard to the inhabitants of the sun. Do you think it is inhabited? I rather think it is. Do you think there is any life there? No question of it; it was not made in vain. It was made to give light to those who dwell upon it, and to other planets; and so
will this earth when it is celestialized.
Every planet in its first rude, organic state receives not the glory of God upon it, but is opaque; but when celestialized, every planet that God brings into
existence is a body of light, but not till then. Christ is the light of this planet.” - Journal of Discourses Vol. 13, p.271.
That's the plan. We are innoculating the uninformed.
contributed to prove Joseph Smith to be a Prophet.
As far back as 1837, I know that he said the moon was inhabited by men and women the same as this earth,
Who can tell us of the inhabitants of this little planet that shines of an evening, called the moon? When we view its face we may see what is termed "the man in the moon," and what some philosophers declare are the shadows of mountains. But these sayings are very vague, and amount to nothing; and when you inquire about the inhabitants of that sphere you find that the most learned are as ignorant in regard to them as the most ignorant of their fellows.

Christ is the light of this planet. - Journal of Discourses 13:271 (July 24, 1870)In my humble opinion, that prophesy was so good, it needed a little more highlighting.
And while we are on the general topic of Celestial Wisdom revealed by the god of Mormonism to LDS Prophet Brigham Young, who can forget these immortal classics:
Rock will decay; Gold and silver grow, same as hair
The elements of which this terra firma is composed, are every moment either composing or decomposing. They commence to organize or to compose, and continue to grow until they arrive at their zenith of perfection, and then they begin to decompose. When you find a rock that has arrived at its greatest perfection, you may know that the work of decaying has begun. Let the practical chemist make his observations upon a portion of the matter of which this earth is composed; and he will find, that just as quick as it is at its perfection, that very instant it begins to decompose. ... Gold and silver grow, and so does every other kind of metal, the same as the hair upon my head, or the wheat in the field; they do not grow as fast, but they are all the time composing or decomposing. - Journal of Discourses 1:219 (October 9, 1852)
Whites will never be allowed to marry blacks
Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the while man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so. - Journal of Discourses: vol.10 p. 110 (March 8, 1863)
You can see an annotated listing of several dozen more equally stupid prophetic utterances and insane teachings from the LDS Prophet (and Mormon university namesake) HERE.
A bible word search on "mock" will turn up some interesting results. It's something that's generally done by non-Christians no matter what the context. When Christians encountered beliefs that they didn't agree with or that were wrong, did they mock or did they teach?
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Now I don't except myself from this because I'm not perfect but it seems like threads like this would serve to illustrate one thing about Christians: That they love to belittle and mock others. I think everyone should examine themselves and look at their real motivations.
Ilky way ping....”To the MOON, Alice, to the MOON!”
They're all up there hopping around grooving to serial marriages and stuff.
I knew about mormonism before F.R. and had a solid informed opinion formed already but the things I’ve learned here reinforces it.
Please give us an example. Do you mean like this?
“Dear brothers and sisters,
It is with great dismay that I reveal to you the following discourses of Brigham Young and an article from a renowned Mormon publication. Do not make mirth at these strange and fantastical ideas. But I think this illustrates that although Mormons claim that other churches are lead by men who talk as men, and that Mormonism is lead by Prophets. These examples seem to prove that:
Mormonism is lead by men who claim to be Prophets yet speak as men!
Please, no merrymaking or mirth. This is a very serious issue. We need to be kind and loving in pointing out the fallacies of Mormonism.
In all seriousness,
Or do you propose it is more polite and Christian to simply shut up and not talk about it? Let poor unsuspecting people join the LDS because they are such "good" people? And then learn the truth and have to make a decision whether or not to stay or go. Oh and BTW P-Marlowe, greyfoxx39 and I, were all members once, and had to make the grueling decision to leave. It has ultimately been to our blessing.
You forgot to add this particular disclaimer to the sermons of Brigham Young you just posted.
I have never yet preached a sermon and sent it out to the children of men, that they may not call Scripture. Let me have the privilege of correcting a sermon, and it is as good Scripture as they deserve. The people have the oracles of God continually. (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, Volume 13, Page 95)
