The Inhabitants of the Moon & Sun

The Inhabitants of the Moon & Sun

The Inhabitants of the Moon & Sun


Quotes

[1] Joseph Smith, Jr.
"The inhabitants of the moon are more of a uniform size than the inhabitants of the earth, being about 6 feet in height.  They dress very much like the Quaker style and are quite general in the style or the one fashion of dress.  They live to be very old; coming generally, near a thousand years."

[2] Brigham Young
"So it is with regard to the inhabitants of the sun.  Do you think it is inhabited?  I rather think it is.  Do you think there is any life there?  No question of it; it was not made in vain.  It was made to give light to those who dwell upon it, and to other planets' and so will this earth when it is celestialized."
