Re: Book of Abraham, Part 3 Podcast

And seriously, I am not being coy here. I don't know what Brian is thinking other than what he has explicitly stated. To my knowledge, Bill Reel doesn't have any inside scoop on this either. At any rate, the emergency warning audio did not cover anything we were talking about behind the scenes. Bill...

Re: Book of Abraham, Part 3 Podcast

I think Brian is keeping his cards close to his vest at this point. He seems to have felt duty bound to come out and disavow his apologetic position on the Book of Abraham from 2010 in response to quotes from his writings from that time being used in the recent Dan Vogel videos. Brian went even furt...

Bill Reel v. Apologist Jim Bennett

Okay, I think this is seriously a big deal. Mormon apologist Jim Bennett agreed to go on Bill Reel's podcast. They had six sit-down interviews, each of them around 2-hours long. They were each able to express their views in a collegial and respectful manner without interruption or derogation. They p...

Re: Book of Abraham, Part 3 Podcast

Sorry about the confusion regarding the emergency broadcast message. Bill added a lot of audio clips like this one after the recording was complete. Most are more self-explanatory than this one. I think it was meant to indicate we were going to be talking about something secretive and potentially ex...

Re: "There is No Integrity Left in the Church"

I agree that I will not make use of any audio, video recording, or transmission of the entire meeting or the disciplinary council. I can see a possible weakness that it does not say "entire meeting or any portion thereof." Is that the loophole? Either way, if Bill did make a recording and if he rel...

Re: August, 1836

I think the least that can be said is that Joseph Smith did not leave treasure digging behind him after the church was organized in 1830. Nor did he leave behind his theology of the importance of seer stones, which over time became characterized as a Urim and Thummum. As late as 1843, Joseph Smith w...
