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.

Flaws in M2C from the outset
Last week I did an interview with The Last Dispensation channel about M2C that is now on YouTube:
We discussed several topics, including the FAITH model, why people can look at the exact same evidence and reach different conclusions, and the origin of contention.
43:30 in my view I'm fine with people believing whatever they want. I just think people should have access to all the facts and all the different interpretations or multiple working hypotheses and so I am perfectly fine with someone in my family or my ward or down the street completely disagreeing with me about everything. That doesn't bother me at all. What I'm interested in is understanding why they think the thing that they do because I feel like understanding other people is more important than trying to convince them of something.
