The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has been around for almost two centuries. It has ebbed and fluctuated in such a predictably adaptive manner throughout it's relatively short life in the religious realm. This Church has a very sordid past, which it does a very good job of teaching for itself, whether the history is slanted or not, is yours to decide. Join me on a journey through the history of the LDS Church through the eyes of the people that were actually there. We will learn about the founding members, where the practices came from, where the Book of Mormon (Mormon Bible) came from, and most importantly, we will examine Joseph Smith in every aspect possibly available to us today.

On this episode, we start out by looking at the actual events surrounding Hiram Page's revelation about the location of Zion. Joe has to rein everybody back in, and put out fires just to keep some semblance of control. We are introduced to our three newest characters in the timeline: Parley P. Pratt, Orson Pratt, and Ziba Peterson.

On this episode, we take a break from the usual historical analysis in order to have a very enlightening discussion with Author David Fitzgerald. He's one of the leading Jesus mythicist authors with his book, "Nailed: Ten Christian Myths that Show Jesus Never Existed", and has catapulted himself into armchair Mormon historian status with, "The Complete Heretics Guide to Western Religion: Book 1 The Mormons". We start off discussing Jesus Mythicism, but move quickly into everything Mormon history. It's tough to express just how much fun this discussion was, and I look forward to many more in the future. Check out David's books by following the links, or googling David Fitzgerald.
