    Such methods of divination were rather common at the time. The same with the seeing stones. After all, we are talking about early 1800's america. hardly a bastion of rationalism.

    That may have worked back in the days of it's founding but is just too incredible to believe in now.
    I never said it was believable now. I cited it as an example of a religion trying to incorporate modern scientific concepts. The obvious one from Mormonism is the use of planetary objects

    It's the Atheistic theory in a nutshell, and it puts in perspective their obnoxious and repetitive bashing of Christianity in relation to science, as if the two have to be diametrically opposed, which they are not.

    For anyone interested in properly understanding the early Christian movement, please look into the Gnostic gospels, the dead sea scrolls, and the host of "alternative" Christian literature that was deemed "illegitimate" by the Romans at the Council of Nicaea three centuries after the supposed life of Jesus.

    If you consider the Bible as it is currently constituted to be the "infallible word of God", consider that it only came to be so because fallible humans with political motivations threw out much of the other (often quite popular) scripture and forced the citizenry to burn these alternative writings on Jesus.

    It is entirely possible the "real" Jesus was quite different from the "approved" Jesus we were allowed to read about.
