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.

Some youtube videos

I was recently asked for a list of all my youtube interviews and videos. It's a good idea that I hadn't thought of compiling before. 

Usually people ask about the origin and setting of the Book of Mormon; i.e., the translation and Cumorah. I'm happy to participate in the pursuit of clarity, charity and understanding. 

You may notice that while a variety of people have had me on their shows, none of the M2C/SITH promoters have invited me. Instead of having me on to explain my views directly, they prefer to criticize from a distance and misrepresent me to their viewers. Which is what we've come to expect from the M2C/SITH crowd, sadly.

Nevertheless, there are many viewing options on youtube already. Until I have a chance to compile more of them, here are a few.


Webinar with ScriptureNotes from two days ago on Restoring Translation to the Restoration:


Mormon Book Reviews on Heartlanders, critics, etc.


Mormon Book Reviews on Jonathan Edwards.

Gospel Tangents on Lehi's crossing the Atlantic. This is one part of several that I've done with Gospel Tangents.


CWIC Media conversation about Cumorah. We also had a conversation about the translation.


Backyard Professor (Kerry Shirts) on Heartland geography.


Several years ago I uploaded some videos on the Moroni's America channel. They could stand some updating, but they're still useful.

Here's one on Scholars vs Prophets.
