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.

M2C circular reasoning-no-wise #245

Everything we read from the M2C citation cartel consists of circular reasoning driven by confirmation bias. This is understandable because these intellectuals suffer from severe cognitive dissonance and the only way they can cope psychologically is to develop these bizarre, irrational arguments for M2C.

If someone has an example of an M2C argument that is not confirmation bias, I'd like to see it ASAP. Send it to lostzarahemla@gmail.com.

We love the people who promote M2C as brothers and sisters. But that's all the more reason for us to encourage them to change course and embrace the prophets instead of repudiating them.

Book of Mormon Central America is the most prolific purveyor of M2C nonsense lately. People send me links of the things they post on Facebook, which typically consist of another no-wise from the past.

From time to time I comment on the no-wise. I don't have time to address most of them, but sometimes I hear enough comments that I feel there's a need.

Here's a recent example:
