This week I read from TW Doane's chapter entitled 'Baptism,' and this leads to infant mortality rates from circumcision in both modern and ancient times, as well as finally explaining what The Book of Mormon (and other religious texts) mean by the phrase "baptism by fire." Suffice it to say, that baptism pre-dates Christianity, and even Judaism by a good number of years. Its not even a ritual unique to the Mid-East or Asia, but was found in the Americas and other nations long before the Christians showed up. Professor Fuzznuts also makes numerous appearances in the episode as he begs me for attention.
