The prevalence of a spirit of contention amongst a people is a certain sign of deadness with respect to the things of religion. When men's spirits are hot with contention, they are cold to religion. - Jonathan Edwards “The Book of Mormon does not supplant the Bible. It expands, extends, clarifies, and amplifies our knowledge of the Savior. Surely, this second witness should be cause for great rejoicing by all Christians.” - Joseph B. Wirthlin

Thoughts on education

Some relevant tweets involving education. The one referencing China, while a hyperbolic, resonates with my personal experience comparing my Chinese with my American college students.

As always, I don't care who said what. I'm interested in the merits of the observations per se. But no doubt my critics will focus on who said what and compete to see who can be the most deeply offended in their outrage theater.



One of the signs of intelligence is to be able to accept the facts without being offended.

"Strong communities talk to each other." -

Ours may become the first civilization destroyed, not by the power of our enemies, but by the ignorance of our teachers and the dangerous nonsense they are teaching our children. In an age of artificial intelligence, they are creating artificial stupidity.

Chinese third graders are learning multi-variable calculus. Our third graders are being taught that “men can have babies.” This will not end well.

"People who live far below their means enjoy a freedom that people busy upgrading their lifestyles can’t fathom." @naval

When you try to be all things to all people, you end up becoming nothing to everyone.
