I have a memory of a memory that I used to have. Maybe someday I'll "tell all" (it's not abuse of any sort) and I'll generally share in a private setting (it's part of what makes me an oddity). But for right now I'm going to be very vague.

This "thing" happened to me when I was a kid. For years it "just was" - and I found out as an adult that my parents had a similar experience and that my youngest sister did also. About a year ago I spent an "all nighter" talking about it, remembering and (basically) reliving it.

After that night, I no longer own the memory.

It's a weird thing; I can remember remembering. But I can't remember the experience. And I want to know why.

There's this other "thing" about me. I am "anosmic" - I have no sense of smell. Zero - I had a gas leak in my basement and didn't know. But I can remember what certain things smell like.
I even had an MRI to rule out a brain tumor

That's sort of what this is like - I know what I should be remembering, but I don't remember.

Last week I started seeing a psychologist who uses hypnotherapy and I had my third session today. This is going to be an interesting trip through my brain.

Are Mormons Christians? Here is part of a debate between Al Mohler Jr. (SBC) and Scott Card (LDS).

Lots of Mormon information.

"The Lost Book of Abraham". The entire documentary is on Youtube!

This award-winning documentary film investigates the story behind a volume of Mormon scripture called the Book of Abraham. The story is that Mormon founder Joseph Smith translated it from an ancient Egyptian papyrus scroll he purchased from an antiquities dealer in 1835. The Lost Book of Abraham visits prominent Egyptologists and other scholars – both Mormon and non-Mormon – to learn the truth behind this fascinating episode in Mormon history.
