It reads like a testimony. It doesn't allow comments or questions. I just don't know how you could defend an alleged man of God that was either in jail or on the run. His lack of character ccontinues to nail him as a fraud.
Hmmm...hard to choose which of these is more comical, but one that sticks out to me is the section about Alma & Amulek proving that Jesus is separate from god--never mind this was decades before Jesus was supposedly even BORN, but these guys are all Christians and talking about 'Jesus Christ', by name; that's along the lines of the old forger's mistake of mentioning World War One by name in a document supposedly written in the 1920's, almost 20 years *before* World War Two....
Oh, and this guy has 4 points to debunk? What about the *rest* of the 80 pages in the CES letter??

I'm thinking you meant the first reference to say "World War Two?" :)
"In the midst of this confusion, Brittney and I prayed and considered the implications. For the first time in many years, we asked with uncertainty: was Joseph Smith really a prophet? Is this really Christ’s Church?"
That's how it starts pretty soon he will be on this message board.
Someday he will post on here and admit he was completely delusional. The authors, and how the BOM was constructed is of little importance to me, rather it is what it actually represents. And that is, of course, complete verifiable fiction.
"Ha! You described that steaming pile of scat as having chunks of carrots in it, when they could possibly be undigested kernels of corn. Therefore, you are lying about it being a steaming pile of scat!"
My eyes hurt from "eye rolling". He says: "We've got to provide resources to help". If TSCC were true, an all-powerful god doesn't need your "help". As for polygamy and Joseph Smith being as pure as the driven snow, he said: "A tender husband who is torn between a commandment from the Lord and a desire to cause his wife no pain." Hmmmm...First of all, polygamy was and still is illegal in the United States. I can't picture God winking at JS and telling him to go ahead and break the law. Oh wait! I forgot....God is a polygamist himself! I guess JS was considerate of Emma since he tried to sneak around, quietly behind her back. As for the accounts of the First Vision: "What would be really weird is if he robotically gave the exact same, seemingly rehearsed account every time he was asked." Yeah, that's called " telling the truth, and nothing but", sweetheart.
Haha...yup I'd guess he was really torn up while having Fanny in the barn three years before he came up with his Pete Jake and John story..I'm also certain he was torn up when Fanny turned up pregnant and he let Emma run her off...or when Emma took the broom to Eliza...girls girls girls...please no fighting...there's lots of me to go around...Id guess he was all torn up over the Lawrence sisters inheritance...poor joe so much torn up"...just struggling to keep Emma and gawd both happy and still keep both mitts full of cake
