    Wow.... all the junk that's been posted by supposed Christians and people who are either Atheists or other groups. I've been Mormon my whole life and the whole load of junk that people claim we believe, and the misinformation. I would suggest that you read the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price. If you can't handle the Bible then it's possible that these might help clarify things or it might turn you off completely. Jack Mormons are people who don't really follow the beliefs or are inactive. It's more of an insult in the Mormon community than a complement. Mormons are Christians. We believe in Jesus Christ, despite all other Christians claiming that we don't. Mormons better than Christians. I don't believe that at all. I've meet some really good people of other Christian denominations. Some of them on here though treat the whole concept of Mormon like it's a dirty word and drag it through the mud as much as they can. We believe in the God of Abraham, Issac, Jacob. This is the God who covenanted with all these patriarchs of the Bible. Again we believe in Jesus Christ. We don't believe in the Trinity, we believe in a Godhead, that is made up of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit or Ghost. They work together as one, as one in purpose. I don't expect Atheists to understand the Mormon/LDS faith. In fact, people like Desiree who are Atheists and of the worse case, can't stand Mormons and are pretty darn vile. But Atheists come in all stocks and stores. And not all are the same. If anything else, Mormons/LDS don't believe that Atheists are going to Hell. I have never been to South Africa so can't help in anything with a South African context.

    Well, in Fort Worth, it was founded as a Fort in 1849 and the railroad came to town in 1876. Dallas was founded in 1841 and incorporated as a city in 1856. Railroad came to town in 1871.

    San Antonio is, of course the site of the Battle of the Alamo (1836).

    The State of Texas was settled by the Spanish in the 1500's, but really there wasn't much going on except the fight for Texas Independance, the US/Mexican War, and Indian fights, and gradual growth, till after the turn of the 20th century (1900's)
