Mormonism and Science

I found this article totally by chance and found it very satisfying. If we take Joseph Smith's statement:
One the grand fundamental principles of Mormonism is to receive truth; let it come from where it may... Have the Presbyterians any truth? Yes. Have the Baptists, Methodists, etc., any truth? Yes. They all have a little truth mixed with error. We should gather all the good and true principles in the world and treasure them up, or we shall not come out true "Mormons."
along with the contents of the follow article by Talmage, it is not a stretch to say that "true" mormonism is synonymous with science.
