It commenced with the Methodists, but soon became general among all the sects in that region of country. In process of time my mind became somewhat partial to the Methodist sect, and I felt some desire to be united with them; but so great were the confusion and a strife among the different denominations, that it was impossible for a person young as I was, and so unacquainted with men and things, to come to any certain conclusion who was b right and who was wrong.

It commenced with the Methodists, but soon became general among all the sects in that region of country. In process of time my mind became somewhat partial to the Methodist sect, and I felt some desire to be united with them; but so great were the confusion and a strife among the different denominations, that it was impossible for a person young as I was, and so unacquainted with men and things, to come to any certain conclusion who was b right and who was wrong.

The Presbyterians were most decided against the Baptists and Methodists, and used all the powers of both reason and sophistry to prove their errors, or, at least, to make the people think they were in error. On the other hand, the Baptists and Methodists in their turn were equally zealous in endeavoring to establish their own tenets and disprove all others.

Who of all these parties are right; or, are they all wrong together? If any one of them be a right , which is it, and how shall I know it? It seemed to enter with great force into every feeling of my heart. I reflected on it again and again, knowing that if any person needed b wisdom from God, I did; for how to act I did not know, and unless I could get more wisdom than I then had, I would never know; for the teachers of religion of the different sects c understood the same passages of scripture so differently as to destroy all confidence in settling the question by an appeal to the Bible.

It was on the morning of a b beautiful , clear day, early in the spring of eighteen hundred and twenty. It was the first time in my life that I had made such an attempt, for amidst all my anxieties I had never as yet made the attempt to c pray d vocally. I had scarcely done so, when immediately I was a seized upon by some power which entirely overcame me, and had such an astonishing influence over me as to bind my tongue so that I could not speak.

Thick b darkness gathered around me, and it seemed to me for a time as if I were doomed to sudden destruction. When the light rested upon me I b saw two c Personages , whose brightness and d glory defy all description, e standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other— This is My f Beloved g Son.

Hear Him! No sooner, therefore, did I get possession of myself, so as to be able to speak, than I asked the Personages who stood above me in the light, which of all the sects was right for at this time it had never entered into my heart that all were wrong —and which I should join.

When I came to myself again, I found myself a lying on my back, looking up into heaven. When the light had departed, I had no strength; but soon recovering in some degree, I went home. And as I leaned up to the fireplace, b mother inquired what the matter was. Why the d opposition and persecution that arose against me, almost in my infancy? I was greatly surprised at his behavior; he treated my communication not only lightly, but with great contempt, saying it was all of the devil, that there were no such things as a visions or b revelations in these days; that all such things had ceased with the apostles, and that there would never be any more of them.

But strange or not, so it was, and it was often the cause of great sorrow to myself. I have thought since, that I felt much like Paul, when he made his defense before King Agrippa, and related the account of the vision he had when he saw a light, and heard a voice; but still there were but few who believed him; some said he was dishonest, others said he was b mad ; and he was ridiculed and reviled. But all this did not destroy the reality of his vision.

He had seen a vision, he knew he had, and all the c persecution under heaven could not make it otherwise; and though they should persecute him unto death, yet he knew, and would know to his latest breath, that he had both seen a light and heard a voice speaking unto him, and all the world could not make him think or believe otherwise. I had actually seen a light, and in the midst of that light I saw two a Personages , and they did in reality speak to me; and though I was b hated and c persecuted for saying that I had seen a vision, yet it was true; and while they were persecuting me, reviling me, and speaking all manner of evil against me d falsely for so saying, I was led to say in my heart: Why persecute me for telling the truth?

I have actually seen a vision; and who am I that I can withstand God, or why does the world think to make me deny what I have actually seen? For I had seen a vision; I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not e deny it, neither dared I do it; at least I knew that by so doing I would offend God, and come under condemnation.

I had found the testimony of James to be true—that a man who lacked wisdom might ask of God, and obtain, and not be b upbraided. In making this confession, no one need suppose me guilty of any great or malignant sins. A disposition to commit such was never in my nature. But I was guilty of d levity , and sometimes associated with jovial company, etc. But this will not seem very strange to any one who recollects my youth, and is acquainted with my native f cheery temperament.

It was a whiteness beyond anything earthly I had ever seen; nor do I believe that any earthly thing could be made to appear so exceedingly white and brilliant. His hands were naked, and his arms also, a little above the wrist; so, also, were his feet naked, as were his legs, a little above the ankles. His head and neck were also bare. I could discover that he had no other clothing on but this robe, as it was open, so that I could see into his bosom.

The room was exceedingly light, but not so very bright as immediately around his person. When I first looked upon him, I was c afraid ; but the d fear soon left me. He also said that the b fulness of the everlasting Gospel was contained in it, as delivered by the Savior to the ancient inhabitants;. He first quoted part of the a third chapter of Malachi ; and he quoted also the fourth or last chapter of the same prophecy, though with a little variation from the way it reads in our Bibles.

Instead of quoting the first verse as it reads in our books, he quoted it thus:. If it were not so, the whole earth would be utterly wasted at his coming. He quoted also the third chapter of Acts, twenty-second and twenty-third verses , precisely as they stand in our New Testament. He also said that this was not yet fulfilled, but was soon to be. And he further stated that the fulness of the b Gentiles was soon to come in. He quoted many other passages of scripture, and offered many explanations which c cannot be mentioned here.

While he was conversing with me about the plates, the vision was opened to my b mind that I could see the place where the plates were deposited, and that so clearly and distinctly that I knew the place again when I visited it. Having related these things, he again ascended as he had done before. This he forbade me, saying that I must have no other object in view in getting the plates but to glorify God, and must not be influenced by any other d motive than that of building his kingdom; otherwise I could not get them.

My father, who was laboring along with me, discovered something to be wrong with me, and told me to go home. I started with the intention of going to the house; but, in attempting to cross the fence out of the field where we were, my strength entirely failed me, and I b fell helpless on the ground, and for a time was quite unconscious of anything.

I looked up, and beheld the same messenger standing over my head, surrounded by light as before. He then again related unto me all that he had related to me the previous night, and commanded me to go to my a father and tell him of the vision and commandments which I had received.

He b replied to me that it was of God, and told me to go and do as commanded by the messenger. I left the field, and went to the place where the messenger had told me the plates were deposited; and owing to the distinctness of the vision which I had had concerning it, I knew the place the instant that I arrived there.

On the west side of this hill, not far from the top, under a stone of considerable size, lay the plates, deposited in a stone box. This stone was thick and rounding in the middle on the upper side, and thinner towards the edges, so that the middle part of it was visible above the ground, but the edge all around was covered with earth. I looked in, and there indeed did I behold the a plates , the b Urim and Thummim , and the breastplate, as stated by the messenger.

The box in which they lay was formed by laying stones together in some kind of cement. In the bottom of the box were laid two stones crossways of the box, and on these stones lay the plates and the other things with them. Sometimes we were at home, and sometimes abroad, and by continuous b labor were enabled to get a comfortable maintenance. He had heard something of a silver mine having been opened by the Spaniards in Harmony, Susquehanna county, State of Pennsylvania; and had, previous to my hiring to him, been digging, in order, if possible, to discover the mine.

After I went to live with him, he took me, with the rest of his hands, to dig for the silver mine, at which I continued to work for nearly a month, without success in our undertaking, and finally I prevailed with the old gentleman to cease digging after it. Hence arose the very prevalent story of my having been a money-digger.

Isaac Hale, of that place; it was there I first saw my wife his daughter , Emma Hale. On the 18th of January, , we were married, while I was yet employed in the service of Mr. I was, therefore, under the necessity of taking her elsewhere; so we went and were married at the house of Squire Tarbill, in South Bainbridge, Chenango county, New York.

Immediately after my marriage, I left Mr. On the twenty-second day of September, one thousand eight hundred and twenty-seven, having gone as usual at the end of another year to the place where they were deposited, the same heavenly messenger delivered them up to a me with this charge: that I should be b responsible for them; that if I should let them go carelessly, or through any c neglect of mine, I should be cut off; but that if I would use all my endeavors to d preserve them, until he, the messenger, should call for them, they should be protected.

For no sooner was it known that I had them, than the most strenuous exertions were used to a get them from me. Every stratagem that could be invented was resorted to for that purpose. The persecution became more bitter and severe than before, and multitudes were on the alert continually to get them from me if possible. But by the wisdom of God, they remained safe in my hands, until I had accomplished by them what was required at my hand.

When, according to arrangements, the messenger called for them, I delivered them up to him; and he has them in his charge until this b day , being the second day of May, one thousand eight hundred and thirty-eight.

If I were to relate a thousandth part of them, it would fill up volumes. The persecution, however, became so intolerable that I was under the necessity of leaving Manchester, and going with my wife to Susquehanna county, in the State of Pennsylvania. While preparing to start—being very poor, and the persecution so heavy upon us that there was no probability that we would ever be otherwise—in the midst of our afflictions we found a friend in a gentleman by the name of b Martin Harris , who came to us and gave me fifty dollars to assist us on our journey.

Harris was a resident of Palmyra township, Wayne county, in the State of New York, and a farmer of respectability. Martin Harris came to our place, got the characters which I had drawn off the plates, and started with them to the city of New York.

For what took place relative to him and the characters, I refer to his own account of the circumstances, as he related them to me after his return, which was as follows:. Professor Anthon stated that the translation was correct, more so than any he had before seen translated from the Egyptian. I then showed him those which were not yet translated, and he said that they were Egyptian, Chaldaic, Assyriac, and Arabic; and he said they were true characters.

He gave me a certificate, certifying to the people of Palmyra that they were true characters, and that the translation of such of them as had been translated was also correct. I took the certificate and put it into my pocket, and was just leaving the house, when Mr. Anthon called me back, and asked me how the young man found out that there were gold plates in the place where he found them. I answered that an angel of God had revealed it unto him. I informed him that part of the plates were b sealed , and that I was forbidden to bring them.

Mitchell, who sanctioned what Professor Anthon had said respecting both the characters and the translation. He stated to me that having been teaching school in the neighborhood where my father resided, and my father being one of those who sent to the school, he went to board for a season at his house, and while there the family related to him the circumstances of my having received the plates, and accordingly he had come to make inquiries of me.

Cowdery being the 7th of April I commenced to translate the Book of Mormon, and he began to a write for me. While we were thus employed, praying and calling upon the Lord, a messenger from heaven descended in a c cloud of light, and having laid his d hands upon us, he e ordained us, saying:. I a baptized him first, and afterwards he baptized me—after which I laid my hands upon his head and ordained him to the Aaronic Priesthood, and afterwards he laid his hands on me and ordained me to the same Priesthood—for so we were commanded.

It was on the fifteenth day of May, , that we were ordained under the hand of this messenger, and baptized. No sooner had I baptized Oliver Cowdery, than the Holy Ghost fell upon him, and he stood up and a prophesied many things which should shortly come to pass. And again, so soon as I had been baptized by him, I also had the spirit of prophecy, when, standing up, I prophesied concerning the rise of this Church, and many other things connected with the Church, and this generation of the children of men.

We were filled with the Holy Ghost, and rejoiced in the God of our salvation. In the meantime we were forced to keep secret the circumstances of having received the Priesthood and our having been baptized, owing to a spirit of persecution which had already manifested itself in the neighborhood. On reflecting further it was as easy to be seen that amid the great strife and noise concerning religion, none had authority from God to administer the ordinances of the Gospel.

Beyond ‘Good’ and ‘Evil

The 19th-century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche is known as a critic of Judeo-Christian morality and religions in general. One of the arguments he raised against the truthfulness of these doctrines is that they are based upon the concept of free will , which, in his opinion, does not exist. In The Gay Science , Nietzsche praises Arthur Schopenhauer 's "immortal doctrines of the intellectuality of intuition, the apriority of the law of causality, Following is, then, the short description of those views of the latter philosopher. In Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason Schopenhauer claimed to prove — in accordance with Kant and against Hume — that causality is present in the perceivable reality as its principle, i.

The player controls Jade and allies, solving puzzles, fighting enemies, and obtaining photographic evidence. Michel Ancel , creator of the Rayman series, envisioned the game as the first part of a trilogy. One of the main goals of the game is to create a meaningful story while giving players much freedom, though the game adopts a relatively linear structure. The game was received poorly when it was shown at E3 , and it prompted the developers to change some of the game's elements, including Jade's design. Ancel also attempted to streamline the game in order to make it more commercially appealing.

Стратмор придумал хитроумный ход, чтобы приспособить Попрыгунчика к нуждам агентства, но его схватили за руку. Несмотря ни на что, АН Б это стоило больших денег. Фонд электронных границ усилил свое влияние, доверие к Фонтейну в конгрессе резко упало, и, что еще хуже, агентство перестало быть анонимным. Внезапно домохозяйки штата Миннесота начали жаловаться компаниям Америка онлайн и Вундеркинд, что АНБ, возможно, читает их электронную почту, - хотя агентству, конечно, не было дела до рецептов приготовления сладкого картофеля.

Любое подозрение об изменении Цифровой крепости могло разрушить весь замысел коммандера. Только сейчас она поняла, почему он настаивал на том, чтобы ТРАНСТЕКСТ продолжал работать. Если Цифровой крепости суждено стать любимой игрушкой АНБ, Стратмор хотел убедиться, что взломать ее невозможно.

 Да? - Меган внезапно насторожилась. Беккер достал из кармана бумажник. - Конечно, я буду счастлив тебе заплатить.

 Иису… - Слова застряли у Бринкерхоффа в глотке.  - Ты думаешь, что в ТРАНСТЕКСТ проник вирус. Мидж вздохнула: - А что еще это может .
