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.

No-wise from Book of Mormon Central (America)

Some readers contact me about the so-called "kno-whys" published by Book of Mormon Central (America) and republished by the rest of the M2C citation cartel. Some of these are well done. Others are pure M2C confirmation bias.

I call the latter "No-wise" because I think it is is inexcusable to characterize the teachings of the prophets as false opinions of men.

From time to time I comment on these "no-wise" on another blog. For example, see this one:


I keep hoping three things for Book of Mormon Central:

1. That they will stop repudiating the prophets about Cumorah; and
2. That they will recognize and respect the beliefs of those members of the Church who both (i) love the Book of Mormon and (ii) still believe what the prophets have taught about Cumorah; and
3. That they will continue doing good research on Book of Mormon topics that supports, instead of opposes, the teachings of the prophets.
