  • Most Inteligent People

    "Latter Day Saints are the most reasonable and the most inteligent of any people on the face of the whole earth."

    Name the man who stated this and you get 10 Zuchini (misspelled) Bread loafs.

    Notice the misspelling of intelligent above.

    Don't know, but Orson Pratt called them the most righteous on the whole earth.

      Oh. Willard Richards wrote that he heard Joseph Smith say it in December 1842.

        Bill the Cat,

        I owe you a Zuchini Bread Loaf. I have heard that Mormon's in order to sound more vogue have taken to calling their Zucchini - Italian Squash. So maybe I should say I owe you 10 Italian Squash Bread Loafs. It was also recorded in Joseph's Journals including the misspelling. So when you say you are the most intelligent folks in the land then perhaps having a proof reader to your spelling would come in handy. I am not saying spelling has anything to do with intelligence because I really don't believe it does to be honest.

        So what was interesting about the quote besides the kinda snarky spelling issue is why would Joseph think a certain people are so intelligent. I know I am speculating but what are the reasons for saying such a thing?

        1. He wanted to flatter them.
        2. God gifted momrons with superior intelligence.
        3. Becoming a mormon somehow makes you more intelligent.
        4. God made non-mormons stupider so that comparably mormons are more intelligent.
        5. Not being a mormon puts you on a path of stupidity so mormons would be comparably more intelligent.
        6. In order to become a mormon you had to be intelligent.

        Mmm am I missing possibilities here?
