The perpetuation of lies is exhausting.

In his latest tripe for the undiscerning, Gardner has succeeded in once more “ever speaking and never being able to get to the point.” In case readers are not aware, Gardner frequently scours the internet to ascertain thoughts on topics he has chosen to defend or attack, who then regurgitates what he finds into never ending  pages of self-indulgent, mental gymnastics … Read more BRANT CAN’T

The errors are enormous: Two Cumorahs?   This issue has been dealt with by Latter-day Saint writers; it is unfortunate that Wilson is unwilling or unable to come to grips with the reality of current Latter-day Saint thought on the subject, relying instead on old discredited anti-Mormon arguments. Actually, the Limited Geography Model does not … Read more HAMBLIN


According to Book of Mormon Geography expert Duane R. Aston, Phd, the Two Cumorah theory began with Sidney Sperry: It was not until the 1960’s that it became clear that the Hill Cumorah of wesern New York was simply too far from central America to fit in with the idea that Jaredites and Nephites had … Read more SPERRY DELIRIUM
