comment Is the LDS's view of Trinity/Godhead considered monotheistic or polytheistic?
Drew, I think you should update the title to this question to reference the trinity specifically, since you could ask this same question with a different context. There are some LDS teachings which talk about becoming a God of your own world like Yahweh, and depending on your understanding of those teachings you could ask if LDS was monotheistic or not

@All btw this is all a discussion on logical positivism

Actually, I think we are on the same page, by saying 'God is not empirically observable' I mean exactly 'observability but not repeatability'.

So, if I am reading your answer correctly you are making an argument for proof by preponderance of evidence?

Interesting, I've not heard Sagan's Dragon, seems to be a form of The Parable of the Invisible Gardner made famous by UK philosopher Antony Flew

@MarcGravell you are absolutely correct in that statement, and the cosmological argument only argues for a 'cause' that exists independent from the universe, if you follow the logic you could make statements such as the cause must transcend space and time, a property shared by Yahweh, Allah, or Brahman for that matter.

I am not entirely sure what you mean in your 3rd point, by the way.

comment Sin and Animal Suffering before the fall?
So, even if you disagree with the premise, and you assume time between the creation and the fall was a very short period of time, say a month, what would certain animals have done for food? You can imagine the lion perhaps eating vegetables, but what about sharks, or t-rex? They are biologically engineered to eat meat, its hard to imagine predators being able to survive long without a kill, and even if they could, then why were they created (biologically) in such a way as to preform best under circumstances which God had not intended them to live?

For clarity, those being judged righteously would there after live on earth in their resurrected bodies, whereas the 144,000 remain in Heaven.

I think after that, they don't deviate entirely with most Christian eschatology. After the general resurrection comes the final judgement. newadvent.org/cathen/12792a.htm
