In celebration of Pioneer Day in Utah (Pie and Beer Day for me), a celebration day that commemorates the Mormons arriving in the Salt Lake Valley, this program discussed Utah myths, legends and folklore. The stories are Mormon and Utah centric so it may or may not be interesting for others who read on this forum.

The Miracle Of The Crickets And Other Utah Legends
https://radiowest.kuer.org/post/miracle-crickets-and-other-utah-legends (https://radiowest.kuer.org/post/miracle-crickets-and-other-utah-legends)

There were several tales covered that I find particularly interesting. One idea that I hadn't heard bouncing around my Utah community is the story that Bigfoot is Cain, cursed to live and wander forever in a fallen state. Another idea that piqued my interest was the idea that some of the Mormon people went underground at some point in time and may someday re-emerge. The LDS Church has a vault built into granite mountain in one of our canyons here. I love to speculate about that place, what's in there, what's connected to it, etc. I know a guy who claims he worked there translating documents.

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Granite_Mountain_(Salt_Lake_County,_Utah)#:~:text=The%20Granite%20Mountain%20Records%20Vault,side%20of%20Little%20Cottonwood%20Canyon.)

That same guy also claims to have a copy of the Spalding manuscript which may predate Joseph Smith's Book of Mormon and the story is that Sidney Rigdon and Joseph Smith took (stole, plaigerized) that manuscript and tranformed it into the text that became the Book of Mormon. When I asked to see it, he was really surprised that I knew what it was and quickly changed the subject.

Quote
"In 1832, Orson Hyde visited Conneaut, Ohio, and preached from the Book of Mormon. Nehemiah King, a resident of Conneaut, who knew Spalding when he lived there, felt that the Mormon text resembled the story written by Spalding years before. In 1833, Spalding's brother John and seven other residents of Conneaut signed affidavits stating that Spalding had written a manuscript, portions of which were identical to the Book of Mormon. Spalding's widow told a similar story, and stated that "the names of Nephi and Lehi are yet fresh in my memory, as being the principal heroes of his tale." These statements were published in E. D. Howe's 1834 book Mormonism Unvailed.

Tower of London welcomes baby ravens for the first time in 30 years
http://www.whitewolfpack.com/2019/05/tower-of-london-welcomes-baby-ravens.html?fbclid=IwAR1caAZtII8k0Lj3vLYoXSkBgtmLIjZLAqgNLT1STE0N0I03aKLWw4dXXKw (http://www.whitewolfpack.com/2019/05/tower-of-london-welcomes-baby-ravens.html?fbclid=IwAR1caAZtII8k0Lj3vLYoXSkBgtmLIjZLAqgNLT1STE0N0I03aKLWw4dXXKw)

According to popular lore, the fates of both the Tower of London and the wider British kingdom are intrinsically linked with the presence of at least six ravens in the palatial, 1,000-year-old fortress. As a royal decree reportedly issued by 17th-century King Charles II warned, if the birds ever flee their London home, “the Tower itself will crumble to dust and a great harm will befall the kingdom.”

Huginn and Muninn, the newborn chicks’ parents, arrived at the Tower aviary toward the end of 2018 but were not expected to be settled in time for the 2019 mating season. Skaife, however, started to suspect the pair had successfully bred after spotting a huge nest that appeared suddenly overnight. On April 23, St. George’s Day, he saw the birds bringing food to the nest, and a few weeks later, he was finally able to approach and assess the scene for himself.

Huginn and Muninn were Odin's ravens, thought and memory. Are they saying the King/Queen of England fills the role of Odin? St. George killed the dragon. The new dragon or the new dragon slayer is being born in England?

Hey NRG. I was here on the last site. I made the Marvel Truths thread. You asked me the same question when I signed up. I don't have a great explanation. Orange is my favourite colour and it works well with blue, and it could mean sad or moldy. Thanks again for a great site and community!

Mediaeval Mythbusting Blog #2: The Problem of “Witchmarks”

(https://i2.wp.com/triskeleheritage.triskelepublishing.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/20170721_151021.jpg?resize=1024%2C768&ssl=1)

Some interesting parts:

"The phrase “witchmarks” is a releatively recent invention. Graffiti archaeologist, Matthew Champion, demonstrated at this year’s Vernacular Architecture Group winter conference that it may not be any older than the middle of the last decade and was specifically invented by journalists to act as an emotive word for use in attention-grabbing headlines."

"The inaccurate term refers to a loosely associated group of marks which are found in historic buildings which include M’s and double-V’s, pentagrams, knotwork, meshes, circular designs and burn marks. "

"Research by an increasing number of scholars, archaeologists and writers (sometimes all three in one!) has largely concluded that these marks were deliberately created by people across a wide period of time spanning the mediaeval, early modern and modern eras and that they may relate to the practice of averting evil or bad luck whilst also bringing good luck to the occupants of buildings (as well as other locations including trees and caves)."

It's a good time for extra protection.

The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche

"According to the wisdom of Buddha, we can actually use our lives to prepare for death. We do not have to wait for the painful death of someone close to us or the shock of terminal illness to force us to look at our lives. Nor are we condemned to go out empty-handed at death to meet the unknown. We can begin, here and now, to find meaning in our lives. We can make of every moment an opportunity to change and to prepare—wholeheartedly, precisely, and with peace of mind—for death and eternity.


“In the Buddhist approach, life and death are seen as one whole, where death is the beginning of another chapter of life. Death is the mirror in which the entire meaning of life is reflected.

"In this wonderful teaching, we find the whole of life and death presented together as a series of constantly changing transitional realities known as bardos. The word "bardo" is commonly used to denote the intermediate state between death and rebirth, but in reality bardos are occuring continuously throughout both life and death, and are junctures when the possibility of liberation, or enlightenment, is heightened.

The bardos are particularly powerful opportunities for liberation because there are, the teachings show us, certain moments that are much more powerful than others and much more charged with potential, when whatever you do has a crucial and far-reachig effect...The greatest and most charged of these moments, however, is the moment of death."

Has anyone seen Enter the Void (2009)? It tackles some of the books ideas through film. Thought it was worth mentioning.

Nice, no problem. Enter the Void is a personal favorite. I'll have to give that a read through.
