comment Do non-Catholic traditions ever have family altars?
The question has now been updated with firm examples proving that Catholics do indeed have altars in their homes--or at least they claim they do! If your point is that they are using the term 'altar' incorrectly, that could be mentioned as a comment to the question, but this in no way answers the question.

@svidgen: Many Catholics (especially in Latin America) also have shrines in their homes, dedicated to a specific saint. I'm not sure if this is the same thing you're talking about when you say "prayer nook." See an example here. Calling it an altar may be inaccurate, but not surprising, considering the practice of placing candles, flowers, etc on the shrines in honor to the saint it honors.

comment Does the Bible say if animals in Eden were carnivorous, or when animals on Earth became carnivorous?
@Andrew: This answer isn't saying that no other Christians care; simply that no other Christian doctrines care (in an official sense). I'm not a YEC and I care (although mainly because I think it's one reason YEC views are wrong--not particularly because it's an important theological issue on its own).

My specific suggestion is: Clarify what you mean. Specify whether you are asking if Canon states this explicitly, or whether an answer that it can be inferred is sufficient.

I was trying to offer such suggestions.

As my comments have made clear, it's not yes/no. It's "it depends." That's why I asked for your clarification... but you've chosen not to clarify. Second, I didn't say it was a truth question--I said it was too broad.

Then your question is "too broad," IMO.

Are you asking if any canon says, explicitly, when animals became carnivorous? Or does the YEC view that the Bible implicitly states when animals became carnivorous count?

You still haven't answered my question.

If what is the case? I presented three possibilities... which question are you asking?

This depends on whom you ask. It does not directly say so, but young-earth creation advocates would say that it clearly implies the answer. Therefore, if you're asking whether the Bible (canon) says directly, this is answerable (and the answer is 'no'). If you're asking whether any doctrines provide an answer, then the answer is 'Yes.' If you're asking which is true, then the question is off-topic.

comment Was the virgin conception of Jesus known to the people at the time?
@FMShyanguya: an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit" (Matt 1:20) -- I'm pretty sure Joseph knew what was going on. The point is--the immaculate conception was no secret to Joseph.

I think it's clear that Joseph new, since he considered divorcing her in secret to spare her dignity.

comment According to LDS doctrine, what is the source of God's power?
@DavidStratton: I wound suggest deleting all existing answers, too, as these recent edits change the natureof the question drastically. Anyone who wishes to modify their answer to match the LDS perspective can easily undelete it again.
