It's a church. It's not a temple.
There is a huge difference between the two in the LDS religion.

Kelowna does not have a Mormon Temple.
The closest temple is in Vancouver.

In the LDS Church, temples are not only a House of the Lord, but are also where members of the church make covenants and perform sacred ordinances such as baptism for the dead, washing and anointing (or "initiatory" ordinances), the endowment, and eternal marriage sealings.

So, after all the postings made in the last 24 hours and the best argument has be reduced to whether it is a church or a temple?

Why would I hope and pray for more than that as rebuttal?

From this context comes the oldest complete literary work we have, the age of which we are certain, dating back at least 7,000 years. The Epic of Gilgamesh is a lengthy narrative of heroic mythology that incorporates many of the religious myths of Mesopotamia, and it is the earliest complete literary work that has survived.

Funny how I just came across this article.....This is what an archaeological site looks like.

How do you come up 7,000 years cliffy? This says 4,700 years ago? Again here you go with no evidence as usual...

All I got say is that you should keep all your sources you quote and back up your miss leading statements. You have never been right yet. I hope your followers know that?

A picture shows the archaeological site of Uruk, which is renowned for its walls that were first built 4,700 years ago by the Sumerian King Gilgamesh

Here cliffy is your Epic of Gilamesh...happy reading. :smt045

So what? It's a dig of some walls. What relevance does that have to do with the last 3 pages of comments? Way to change the subject......again.

I don't think anyone has made any points about anything in about 10 pages. Not sure what's so scandalous about the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Bible having the same story. I've read a lot of books that borrowed stories from previous books. Original sources are always best, but secondary sources are great too.

Little tired about talking about monkeys....and how magically they turned into people.

Not one site has been posted of an actual archeological site with pits, cities, caves, full of these ancient mystic monkey/people you speak of....

Oh, oh their hunters and gathers...maybe go look for bones around some berry bushes?

Would this God that is in The Epic of Gilgamesh possibly be the God of Adam and Eve?

Stories DO get better with the number of times they are told. I'll give you that one. I am anxiously awaiting the newest and next publication. I hear Harlequin is coming out with the Canadian edition. Something about a Newfie and giving him a fish and then selling him the boat, motor, and all the right fishing gear to feed himself for life chapter is a real cliffhanger.

So...you screw up and get it wrong, I correct you and give you the right answer...and this is all you have to say ?
You were wrong...there is NO TEMPLE in Kelowna. There is only ONE in all of BC, seven in Canada.
I am aware of what the temples are used for thanks...it is you that didn't know the difference.

They do not hold church services in their temples, in fact, they are not open on Sundays.

But, yeah, post more photos of missionaries because that helps prove your point for sure.
