Is it safe to rub magnets on Mormons?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Sure. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) are human just like anyone else, and it isn't extremely harmful to rub a magnet over human skin. If you have iron rich blood or a pacemaker and are exposed to extremely strong magnets for long periods of time, it can cause problems, but just rubbing a normal refrigerator magnet on your skin wont do anything.

Do Mormons like magnets?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Mormons, like people of any other belief system, may have varying opinions on magnets. Magnets are an everyday object used in many applications, so it is likely that Mormons have no particular stance on them as a group.

What is the correlation between Mormons and Magnets?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It began from a South Park episode, and some have attributed it to an Insane Clown Posse song...but the reason is that Magnetism, along with many other scientific laws is not explained by religion. Most Mormons would reply that there is magnetism because "god" had made it so, not the scientific answer - either a moving electric field or spin of quantum particles. This latter process causes materials to become inherantly magnetic (like a bar magnet) when a large majority of particles (particularly electrons) have the same spin, which results in a north-south pole configuration.

What was the Mormon Trail and how was it different from the other trails?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Mormon Trail was a route taken by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the 1840s and 1850s to escape persecution and seek religious freedom in the Western United States. It was different from other trails like the Oregon Trail because it was primarily used by a single religious group with a specific destination in mind, and the Mormons faced unique challenges such as hostility from other settlers and limited resources along the way.

How many morman churches in the United states?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) reported 14,018 congregationsin the United States as of January 2015. 152 new Mormon congregations were formed in the United States during the year 2014. The number of congregations, however, is not the number of church buildings, because in large cities or areas with a high Mormon population (much of the western US), most Mormon church buildings are shared by 2, 3 and sometimes even 4 congregations of 100-400 members each. Additionally, some small congregations do not yet have a church building and meet in homes or rented buildings.

Which states contain present day chiefly Mormon areas?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Many states in the western United States have areas with high concentrations of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church).
-The state most well known for it's Mormon population is Utah, a state mostly settled by Mormon pioneers and home to the international headquarters of the Church. Approximately half of all Utahans are practicing Mormons, with many more (perhaps 30% or so) non-practicing or former Mormons. There are 17 Mormon Temples and 5,000 congregations in Utah.
-Idaho, specifically southeastern Idaho and the suburbs of Boise (cities of Meridian, Nampa, etc) in western Idaho, have high Mormon populations. Southeastern Idaho is home to a church-owned university, and there are 5 Temples and 1,100 congregations in Idaho.
-Arizona, specifically northern Arizona and the suburbs of Phoenix (cities of Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, etc). Arizona has 6 Temples and 836 congregations.(Together, Idaho, Utah, and Arizona make up what is sometimes called the "Mormon Curtain", a high concentration of Mormons stretching from the old Mormon colonies in northern Mexico to the old Mormon colonies in southern Canada.)
- Washington, specifically the tri-cities area (Kennewick, Richland, Pasco in the southeastern portion of the state). Washington has 3 Temples and 545 congregations.
-California has a fair amount of Mormons as well, with 7 temples, 1,355 congregations, and more missions than any other state (19).
-There are pockets with high Mormon concentrations in many other states, including Oregon, Wyoming, Missouri, Texas, New York, and Florida.

What percentage of Boise city is Mormon?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) does not release membership statistics for areas smaller than a state. One reason is because these numbers are constantly changing as people move or convert. The reported number of baptized Mormons in the entire state of Idaho in January 2013 was 422,345.

If you need membership information for the city of Boise or the Boise metro area, you will have to contact a Mormon leader in the area (a Bishop or Stake President) and he can get you in contact with someone who will have that information. Most likely this will be the Area Seventy or a Mission President.

What is the percentage of lds members that attend UVU?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is difficult to provide an exact percentage of LDS members that attend Utah Valley University as specific data on religious affiliation is not typically tracked by universities. However, given UVU's location in Utah and the predominant LDS population in the state, it is likely that a significant portion of the student body identifies as LDS.
