The ONLY thing good about this book is that it isn’t very long. I only managed to get through the first 9 pages before I gave up.
The Kolob Theorem : A Mormon’s View of God’s Starry Universe
There are millions of other stars within the Celestial zone. I just stumbled across this post, and while my knowledge is much more limited than most who seem to frequent, I found this beautiful: It is by the light of Christ that we comprehend these laws.
When we have that desire to be like Enoch, Abraham, Moses, or even Joseph Smith, and live the will of the FATHER, those truths will begin to unravel before our eyes and will see the truths that are hidden from the world and the church [due to the spiritual immaturity].
Posted July 29, And when man fell…the earth fell into space, and took upon its abode in this planetary system, and the sun became our light… This is the kolkb the earth came from, and when it is glorified it will return again unto the presence of the Father.
Galileo won this fight. He makes it clear this is just theordm own speculation.
Posted July 31, Dear Anonymous, In the animated film Prince of Egypt there is a scene where Moses lifts his theoerm over the Red Sea and then dramatically slams it down into the water. Some would simply respond, “But it’s a miracle and God can do whatever He wants!
Hilton includes a quote from a famous astronomer, Fred Hoyle, to back up part of his theorem.
The Kolob Theorem: A Mormon’s View of God’s Starry Universe
I did this because I am both qualified and competent to make this judgement if this were a legal trial then I would be what is called an expert witness.
The scriptures are replete with evidence of God having “endless,” unnumbered creations, this book keeps god under control by postulating garb It is books like this that make members of other churches think Mormons are weirdos.
I hadn’t put much thought into where God resides and worlds moving from their earthly realm. So in his attempt to make the latest and greatest astronomical observations into something “faith promoting”, Dr. I think it is one of the wonderful insights of LDS theology that God has a physical body, and he lives on a physical world.
Wow, did this book blow my mind. These places appear more real; they are made of matter, some of very fine matter, and exist in time and space.
Ergo, no such planet or star named Kolob. The concept of a theorem is fundamentally deductive, in contrast to the notion of a scientific theory, which is empirical.
“The Kolob Theorem” – LDS Freedom Forum
In approaching this subject we must remember that a humble approach is more important that anything else. We have parts of what would be facsimiles 1 and 2 theore we don’t know how much those were part of the translation or if they were used more as a basis for an inspired “translation” we would call it more of a revelatory experience. Where does God live?
The main trust of natural theology is to verify one’s religion using arguments from the prevailing scientific theories and observations of the day. The spiritual light spectrum encompasses all the gospel principles. I haven’t reread Kolob Theorem or the notes I made when I first read it, so I will not comment on its scientific content at this point.
There My husband was right – this book is fascinating. I think it’s tenuous to equate the laws of physics with scriptural accounts to confirm or deny if they really happened. I have a skeptical confidence in either the “truth” or reliability of any of the three categories of lifes, religion, science or politics to provide truth to live by.
The book and the theory really are an interesting perspective.
The problem is that the portrayal of the parting of the Red Sea in the Prince of Egypt not only defies physics but also is not in agreement with what is found in scripture. I too felt it was over simplified in some respects. I was quite shocked to see such when I began reading it for the last couple of days. This book would be much improved if it could address alternative scriptural interpretations. My point is that I deliberately did not address doctrinal questions in my post, so it should not be taken as a commentary on the LDS doctrines mentioned in the book.
This would explain how Fathers creations multiply. Hilton was trying to do.
