    Great discussion. Near the end, the group talked about the myths about who the prophets would be that would resurrect in Jerusalem. Like most others, I heard the speculation that current apostles would be the ones. But this speculation comes right from BRM, and is sanctioned by the LDS student manual:

    “Elder Bruce R. McConkie identified the two prophets as “followers of that humble man Joseph Smith, through whom the Lord of Heaven restored the fulness of his everlasting gospel in this final dispensation of grace. No doubt they will be members of the Council of the Twelve or of the First Presidency of the Church.”
    I think John was right. If BRM truly believed this, I’m sure a bunch of others were secretly wondering if they would be the ones! Good luck, brethren.

    Very nice discussion.

    If I may, in addition to D&C 77, the whole doctrine of Adam/Eve and the literal Flood (all firmly established as official/literal doctrines) are also fully inconsistent with evolution. That is, if science ever discovers that humans are the product of a single breeding pair that lived 6,000 years ago, it would invalidate evolution.

    So when someone says the church has no official position on evolution, it’s simply not true. The church has official doctrines that, if true, would make evolution false. And that constitutes having an official position.

    What is the book about the biblical Book of Revelation that John referenced at about 15 minutes into the podcast?

    I’ll answer the 2 tribes that aren’t lost!

    Judah and Benjamin.

    Oh, and since most Mormons are from Ephraim, they form part of the Lost Tribes. That’s a go-to to blow a believer’s mind. The Church paints the “Lost 10” as an other that is to be gathered, not current members.
