Drawing the Wrong Conclusion

The wrong conclusion: If you're going to fall from grace, it's better to do it first. Both the Lamanites and the Nephites fell, but it's the Nephites who were genocided out of existence when they fell last. The Lamanites are still around.

A marginally better conclusion: It is better to be the descendant of someone who fell from grace than to be the person who chooses to jump.

Another marginally better conclusion: The higher you are, the worse it hurts if you fall. Laman was never very high to begin with.

Include as corollaries that we are also judged based on how high we could have risen and that there's no way to safely climb down a little before you jump and you might start to get close to something that resembles accuracy.
