SCRIPTURE: “By the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.” –Moroni 10:5. [source]

COMMENTARY: Maybe in the old days when you didn’t have a reliable way to test things, you would have to use your intuition to try to figure things out. But now we are living in the future, and we can actually know a lot of things with a great deal of certainty, thanks to the scientific method. When you get sick, you might still pray, but you also go to the doctor. That’s because you trust science more than religion for your health. I think it’s a good idea to trust science more than religion for answers to other questions, too. Sure, pray if you want, but more certain answers will come through science than through the warm fuzzies of the Holy Ghost. Unlike your god, science doesn’t work in mysterious way. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
