Over at Mormon Scholars Testify . . .

Though I don't deserve to be there by any means, MormonScholarsTestify.com includes a contribution from yours truly. If you've followed my thoughts in the past, you can imagine that it was difficult selecting just a few areas to discuss when there's so much I want to say on many issues. I hope my choices were OK, but I left so much out. Naturally, any statement of faith will seem bizarre to those not interested in understanding why others believe, but I hope there might be some useful food for thought for some people.

More importantly, I hope you'll read some of the statements from the real scholars over there. You'll see a surprising diversity of thought and experience converging toward some common affirmations. Really an intriguing site, even if they did lower the bar once.

You're too modest, Jeff. Thanks for contributing to a great site.

Why do most of the scholars look old?

Great to see you there, Jeff. So glad to see the Mormon Scholars site, and to see it continue to grow.

I guess study makes you age, Mitch. The more people read, think, and write, the older we get - every time! Totally bizarre - can't figure out why. Theories welcome.

Does that mean Dick Clark never read a book past eight grade?

Jeff, I admire your intellectual capacity. You are not only a respectable Engineer, but you've built a sound understanding of many issues relevant to the faith experience. You're also smart enough to know your limitations and bring in the experts where needed. You have my respect as a scholar and I was rapt to see you on Mormon Scholars testify.
