Must disabuse these of the delusion that they are in possession of reality.  Denial of the Holy Ghost and the administrations thereof, which are real as per the testimony of myself and the prophets of Israel and the Only Begotten, is unpardonable, saith the Lord.  These even deny the spirit in man, which Elizabeth Kubler Ross proved in 1969 to the true seeker of truth.  One of the greatest intelligences ever, Brigham Young said, as recorded in the Journal of Wilford Woodruff:


September 17, 1854: ...Brother Pratt also thought that Adam was made of the dust of the earth; could not believe that Adam was our God or the Father of Jesus Christ. President Young said that He was, that He came from another world and made this, brought Eve with him... And if we were faithful, we should become Gods as He was. He told Brother Pratt to lay aside his philosophical reasoning, and get revelation from God to govern him and enlighten his mind more, and it would be a great blessing to lay aside his books and go into the canyons as some of the rest of us were doing and it would be better for him. He said his philosophy injured him in a measure. Many good things were said by President Young—that we should grow up in revelation so that principle would govern every act of our lives. He had never found any difficulty in leading this people since Joseph’s death.
"True religion deals with spiritual things. We do not come to a knowledge of God and his laws through intellectuality, or by research, or by reason. In the realm of intellectual attainment I have a doctor’s degree...Joseph Smith said that a man could learn more about the things of God by looking into heaven for five minutes than by reading all the books ever written upon the subject of religion."
