The Kolob Theorem allows us to see more clearly the home we lived in before we were born and the home we will live in after we die. Hilton as simplistic, uneducated and irrelevant and placing labels such as natural theology to his ideas.
These creations are of finite number at any instant in time and consist of about billion stars, plus their associated planets presently exist in the Milky Way Galaxy. They may get some of the physics wrong, but that is OK because they are interested in telling a story and as an added benefit exploring important philosophical and cosmological concepts.
Never read the book, but interesting to think about. I theotem it 4 stars for entertainment value.
Quantumleap An explanation of the problem with “The Kolob Theorem”
The second thing I want to make clear is that my critique of the book does in no way touch on the validity of Church doctrines. Although I don’t argue with the point of contention that Quantumleap42 has with Dr. It is theoreem much a part of the material world as we and God are.
This is the case throughout the Genesis account.
The Kolob Theorem: A Mormon’s View of God’s Starry Universe
By kilob indications he used a similar process when translating the Book of Abraham. First, there are temporary ones, like the City of Enoch, or the earth in the Garden of Eden period it had the same time reckoning as God, years as a day. First, in Isaiah My comments were solely confined to the astronomy. Only the power pathway of Kolob is described, however. Just like you predict that Fred Theore theory has been superseded and the present theory will be superseded when science makes more progress with new discoveries.
Still, I am glad to have this starting point to consider my own views on the subject. There My husband was right – this book is fascinating. As Erich Robert Paul pointed out in his book on Mormon cosmology, Joseph Smith never attempted to reconcile the knowledge of astronomy from the Book of Abraham, or the three degrees of glory with any contemporary astronomical observations. I too felt it was over simplified in some respects. These are called black holes.
It helps us anticipate the reality of the glories of our future home. I’m a bit suspicious that all the scientific and most of the other sources in the bibliography were published before I was born. Bob, I just wanted to point out one thing.
For comments I don’t allow links to anti-Mormon sites. Can you point to it? One thing that I’ve heard before, and I can’t seem to make sense of is the idea of Jesus Christ only coming to our world, out of the countless worlds God has created.
His promise to His children is that if they will keep the commandments, they will learn how to become gods themselves. Hilton could improve his theory by doing the following: Recent scientific findings show evolution to be on very shaky ground, yet it is taught as fact in our schools.
This means that I am in no way intending my review to question any LDS doctrines. This book answered a lot of those questions, and was extremely though provoking. I believe this is the sort of enquiry our Father in a heaven encourages us to pursue within the clear perspective that the doctrines witnessed by the 15 Apostles of the Church are the ones we fundamentally live by – that Jesus is the Christ and the author of our salvation from the Fall through the Atonement and restoration of the fullness of the gospel and the Priesthood authority to administer the saving ordinances, all dependent on our faith, humility, obedience, love etc.
If this were something published 50 or 60 years ago it would have been more significant, but astronomy has progressed a lot since then.
