The Tendency to Faith

The Tendency to Faith

James O. Mason, “The Tendency to Faith,” Ensign, Apr. 1974, 21

Geneticists believe that the variations produced by chromosomal division and recombination is a matter of chance. However, they speculate about the possibility, sometime in the future, of controlling the genetic makeup of the individual, in the hope of preventing inherited diseases. But can the genetic code, with its unlimited variability, be intelligently programmed by understanding an application of divine law so that chance is not the determining factor? And is it possible that variation is being intelligently controlled to relate to our premortal development so

Office Prank – Windows 3.11 (for Workgroups)

In the office I work in, if you are gone for more than a couple of days, you will have a joke played on you.  It can be anything from your computer systems missing, you LCD monitors replaced with huge CRT monitors.  Your office can be turned into a cardboard box.   Last year when I went on vacation, they did this to my cubical – Office Prank 2009. 

This year they got almost the entire IT team to help out.  This is an OLD DELL OpiPlex GX1, with a small hard drive and a extra small monitor.  They dug a …

I don’t look in her notebook unless she lets me, and when she does, I am amazed at some of the drawings, doodles, and thoughts that she has put to paper.

Then I was at Barnes and Noble …

Regrets….

There is a movie called Back to the Future that stars Michael J Fox as a character named Marty McFly.  Marty comes from a family of “Geeks” because of something his Dad (George McFly) did or did not do when he was in High School.   Marty gets that chance to go back in time with the help of Dr. Emmett Brown (played by Christopher Lloyd).  In the process he encourages his Dad to stand up to Biff Tannen (Thomas F.

Muskogee OK??

Why a trip to Muskogee OK?   I have been asked that a few times in the last week or so, so here is the answer.  I can only think of a few things in my life that I regret doing.  One of them happened almost three years ago.  I had a Vasectomy.   Aimee and I after having our first boy and fifth child had the procedure done.  It was a mistake.  After talking about it we both came to the conclusion that neither of us really felt good about it.  But both of us were relying on the other to …
