I must admit, before my trip to New Zealand over the holidays I had never heard of the Mormon Maori prophecies. I knew that there are many Polynesian church members. I was aware that the most popular religion in the island of Molokai (the spiritual center of Hawaii) is Mormonism, and that there are many Samoan and Tongan church members. As for the Maori, I knew that they were Pacific Islanders. I knew the men danced the haka and the women danced with poi balls. I knew that they once practiced cannibalism (practice makes perfect!) and were considered fierce by early European seafarers who visited the islands. I knew that one of their greetings (touching foreheads and sharing a breath) is similar to the Eskimos (rubbing noses).
Happy iPhone Launch Day, everyone! Hopefully it’s a day of jubilation and good tidings of great joy from Cupertino. Maybe Apple will add video-recording abilities, and perhaps a compass function, along with the cool iPhone 3.0 software.
Or course, this is not the forum for that kind of speculation—this is the forum for a different kind of speculation: Is the iPhone foretold of in the scriptures?
