The Artful Dodger of Mormon Apologetics

New RFM podcast just went up yesterday. https://mormondiscussionpodcast.org/2019/06/radio-free-mormon-069-dcp-artful-dodger/ It deals with Daniel C. Peterson's statement that there has been "no suppression" of the First Vision accounts. Amazingly, I just found out that after my podcast went up, Dani...

Re: Bruce Porter, Apologist Fireside

These hieroglyphics were apparently the original endowment and thus was so profoundly sacred that the church and the high level apologists don't bring it up. My mother-in-law excitedly showed it to me. I think I disappointed her when I asked if any non-church Egyptologists had examined it and provi...

Re: RFM Mormon Apologetic Lecture Series

It is amazing what a certain degree of emotional detachment from a subject can do for having an even-handed and pleasant discussion.

Re: RFM Mormon Apologetic Lecture Series

Consiglieri, my first exposure to you was when I heard you doing the apologist thing on a podcast, but I can't remember what podcast. It was when I was still trying really hard to believe, so I enjoyed your bullseyes. I suspect that if I had heard it a couple of years later I might have thought of ...

RFM Mormon Apologetic Lecture Series

Hi All! Just wanted to let you know I am posting a series of 12 lectures I gave in Institute back in 1989, exactly 30-years ago! I have two of the lectures up at RFM under the title, "Radio Free Mormon--Defender of the Faith." Here is episode one: https://mormondiscussionpodcast.org/2019/05/radio-fr...

Re: Nice Chat with SCMC Member Today

Hi, Kellan Hatch here, Sandy Willow Creek 7th Ward. I'd like to ask you SCMC guys who are monitoring sites like this how long it takes before you start getting that OH SH!T! feeling in the pit of your stomach as you learn more about real church history and the origins of doctrines. I'm also very cu...

Re: Nice Chat with SCMC Member Today

The new podcast is up regarding the SCMC!

https://mormondiscussionpodcast.org/201 ... -the-lord/

I decided to call it, "Spying for the Lord."

Weird Alma was kind enough to let me use one of his songs to close with.

It is dynamite!

Nice Chat with SCMC Member Today

I had a nice telephone chat with a member of the Strengthening Church Members Committee this morning. The funny thing is he didn't call me. I called him. Here is how it came about. Early this morning I was contacted by Bill Reel advising me that there is a teenager (about 18) who listens to the podc...

Re: New RFM podcast on Nelson's LGBT flip-flop is really good stuff

So glad you liked it.

The stars really came into alignment for this podcast.

I think it may be the best podcast I've ever done.

(Which may or may not be saying something depending on your point of view.)

Re: The Pharisee Phenomenon--New RFM Podcast

Thanks for the feedback, everyone! There really is something about bringing all these examples and audio clips together under one heading, isn't there? Busily working on part 3, which is going to be the last episode; not doing a part 4! It will be around 80-minutes long, but I am cramming in the fin...

Re: Bill Reel v. Apologist Jim Bennett

My impression is that Bennett is doing what all apologists do, but in a different way. He is creating a church that is completely different from how the LDS church represents itself. He then says he believes this creation of his is true. The problem is that the church he believes is true has nothing...

Re: "Research is Not the Answer"

For some reason, I incorrectly titled this "Faith is Not the Answer."

The quote is, "Research is Not the Answer."

Corrected.
