SCRIPTURE: “Q. What are we to understand by the book which John saw, which was sealed on the back with seven seals? A. We are to understand that it contains the revealed will, mysteries, and the works of God; the hidden things of his economy concerning this earth during the seven thousand years of its continuance, or its temporal existence.” -D&C 77:6. [source]
QUOTE: “We can hardly be justified in trying to harmonize the days of creation with the extended periods of millions of years according to the reckoning of the so-called scientists.” -Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, Volume 1, p. 80, 1954 edition. [source]
COMMENTARY: The only thing worse than a so-called scientist is a so-called prophet. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
