Articles For Latter-Day Saints (Of Course Anyone Is Welcome To Read Them)!!!
This website is focused on the issue of whether we humans were created by the theory of evolution or by God.
But this article has a different focus. It is mainly about the issues in the evolution debate which affect Latter-Day Saints (i.e. LDS). So the things I say and the articles I link to in this article are primarily relevant to LDS doctrines.
So let's start at the beginning, the massive meeting where Chirst was chosen to be the Savior of the World, namely the Grand Council!!! YOU WERE THERE and you voted for Christ or you would not have a physical body - ever!!!
So here is the article on the Grand Council!!!
And it is logical to look at an article about why the theory of evolution targets (i.e. mocks) a belief in Adam and Eve:
From here on we will be looking at doctrines relevant to a belief in God verse a belief in the theory of evolution.
Article: The First Book To Describe the Theory of Evolution Was NOT Written By Darwin
Most people think that Darwin wrote the first book to describe the theory of evolution. Actually, the Book of Mormon (first published in 1830) described the theory of evolution, including natural selection, about 29 years before Darwin's first book on evolution was published in 1859!!!
The Book of Mormon actually has several sets of versus which discuss the theory of evolution and in all cases the Book of Mormon is not at all supportive of those who teach the theory of evolution.
Article: Where Did God Come From?
So if many Christian churches, including the Mormon/LDS church, claim that God created all species, it is perfectly fair to ask: Where did God come from?
While no one knows the full answer to this question, this article will dig into the subject based on what we have been told by the prophets, both ancient and modern.
Article: Prophetic Book of Mormon Warnings
This short article goes into more detail about two people who have a "run in" with each other!!! One was a prophet and the other was called the "anti-Christ". Guess who wins.
Article: The War In Heaven Comes to Earth (Bible and LDS)
Before Adam and Eve were put on this earth there was a war in heaven between the forces of Christ and the forces of Lucifer, who would later become "the devil."
This article goes into detail about the war in heaven that determined who would be born on this planet and who would remain a spirit!!
Article: About The Sophistication Of 3 Nephi 29:7-9 In The Book Of Mormon
If I were to ask any scholar in the LDS church, whether in Provo, Utah or Salt Lake City, this question: "How many different levels of heaven and hell are there?" every one of them would give the same answer - four:
Well, that is the wrong answer!!! The correct anser is five!!! Here are the five:
Here is an article on this website which explains who might fit into the category of Like Unto The Son Od Perdition:
Article: Why The Confusion About Evolution?
The intentional deceptions of evolutionists, by the use of clever terminology, are why there is such a wide diversity of opinions about evolution among LDS scientists. Very few members of the church understand the sophistication of the deceptions of the scientific establishment.
While these discussions are also in the Patterns of Intelligence book, if you want a quick lesson in understanding the deceptive definitions used by the scientific establishment, this article is for you.
Statement: The 1909 Official Statement of the First Presidency of the LDS Church
The 1909 statement of the First Presidency on the theory of evolution remains the official document of the church on the theory of evolution. This statement in 1909 was reprinted in the 2002 Ensign. It remains not only the official doctrine of the church, but the best description of the origin of man outside of the scriptures!! It is highly, highly recommended to the reader to study this document very carefully!!! It is unlike anything else you can read on the subject of evolution!!
Here is a link to this magnificent article:
Here is a 14 page article with my comments about the 1909 and 1910 statements of the First Presidency. My comments focus of the relationship between the statements of the First Presidency and what scientists knew between 1909 and 1953:

Many attempts to lead the youth of the church astray are made by those who appear to be harmless or even friendly. This talk by Elder Neil L. Anderson, of the Quorum of the Twelve, is a warning to the youth of the church about those with "smiling eyes" who are not who they claim to be.

Even though the LDS Church officially rejects the theory of evolution (see the 1909 Statement, linked to above, and the Book of Mormon, Alma chapter 30, among many other documents), no book or article which is involved in scientific debates or which discusses the scientific issues of the theory of evolution, even if it strongly supports official church doctrine, is endorsed by the LDS church unless it is part of an official church publication.
The gospel deals with eternal and unchanging truths but all of the fields of science constantly change as new discoveries are made. Thus, the church does not establish any scientific claim as being absolute.
As a result, the books and articles written by R. Webster Kehr represent the opinions of the author and are too scientific to be published or endorsed by the LDS church.
