Perhaps John Grigg can help me here: years ago I heard that early
Mormons were strictly creationist. One of the first prophet/leaders,
(B. Young?) saw in vision the *exact stones* that Adam used to
sacrifice lambs to his god, these being located in Illinois? Upon
closer examination, Adam's altar stones were found to contain...
fossils. [doooooh!]

Since that day, the Mormon leadership has been conspicuously
silent on the topic. John, true or false? spike
