long ago ideas

“When we are tired, we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago." - Friedrich Nietzsche. Long ago, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery conquered false claims that the Book of Mormon was fiction or that it came through a stone in a hat. But these old claims have resurfaced in recent years. To conquer them again, we have to return to what Joseph and Oliver taught.

Hugh Nibley and no patience with M2C

While I'm fine with people believing and advocating whatever they want, that doesn't mean I feel obligated or compelled to agree with anyone else. 

When scholars present an alternative to the teachings of the prophets, I prefer to accept what the prophets have taught, particularly when their teachings are corroborated and vindicated by external evidence.

I think people should make their own informed decisions.

Here are 3 slides from a presentation I gave a few years ago.
