Did They Really Say That?!?

"Does the earth conceive? It does, and it brings forth. If it did not, why do you go and put your wheat into the ground? Does it not conceive it? But it does not conceive except you put it there. It conceives and brings forth, and you and I live, both for food and for clothing, silks and satins. What! Satin grow? Yes. What produces it? The silkworm produces it. Does the silkworm produce except it conceives? No, it eats of the mulberry tree. Where does the mulberry tree come from? It comes from the earth. Where did the earth come from? From its parent earths."
-Heber C. Kimball (Journal of Discourses V.6 Pg 36)

Heber Kimball was one of the original twelve LDS apostles, and was first counselor to Brigham Young in the First Presidency from 1847 until he died in 1868.  So he was a well-recognized leader in the LDS church.

I shouldn’t have to comment on his teaching other that to say it is obviously false.
