Reliance on revelation made Joseph and the other visionaries appear marginal, but like marginal people before them, the prohets aimed a question at the heart of their culture: if believers in the Bible dismissed revelation in the present, could they defend revelation in the past?

Recently, the founders of DOGE-inspired memecoin Shiba Inu Coin sent Vitalik Buterin half of all existing SHIB (presumably in an attempt to convince other traders that the Ethereum cofounder is fan). After Buterin donated more than $1 billion worth to India for Covid relief, he “burned” the majority of his remaining SHIB, removing them from circulation. Via a message on Ethereum blockchain, he warned other developers: “PLEASE DO NOT GIVE ME COINS OR POWER IN YOUR PROJECT WITHOUT MY CONSENT!”

The world is a hive of bible-making... In the Book of Mormon reading, the Bible becomes not the book of books, but the mother scripture for a brood of bibles. Divine revelation cannot be confined; it is delivered wherever people will listen. The Book of Mormon not only prepares the way for itself by ridiculing those who think the Bible sufficient; it warns readers against restricting God in the present. Revelation may break forth anywhere and anytime.
