Ok, this article about DNA and The Book of Mormon was front page LATimes today. A part of me is tempted to address this article and its relevance to the Mo church & culture.
But the other part of me is strongly resisting that urge. Instead I will tell you that I have a really bad cut on my middle toe that’s infected and oozy. I’ll spare you the picture and just let you imagine it. Not a pretty sight. When you’ve got so few toes to start with, even the tiniest cut on one of them hurts really bad.
And I’ll also tell you that I just ate a block of marinated tofu. Plain, cold, tofu. Yum. Yay for companies that make protein so palatable and digestible.
So by juxtaposing my comments about toesores and tofu I am in no way saying that the Lamanite DNA problem is anything like my sore toe–that will fester for awhile and eventually heal after I pour lots of apologetics (I mean hydrogen peroxide) on it. Nor am I saying that reading the Book of Mormon is much more palatable when it is processed into bite-size flavored curds.
