    You refer to the strong tradition of lying the Church engaged in to obscure the whole polygamy fiasco. Lying became firmly entrenched in the culture. I think the idea that the women who testified in the Temple Lot case could have been lying about their relationship to Joseph Smith (at the behest of Brigham Young whose word was law) needs to be given greater consideration. It is unpopular among historians to wonder of Joseph Smith did, indeed, have 33 plus wives or practice plural marriage the way it is generally portrayed, but I think the evidence that his participation in the practice could have been fabricated or at least greatly exaggerated by subsequent church leaders is compelling.

    I would like to see an episode on these theories.

    Is there a link to Mythrin’s posts about obscure mormon beliefs and his research finding the sources of those beliefs from church leadership? I’d love to see those.

    I was excited to hear at the beginning of the podcast that donations to the podcast are tax deductible, but I cannot see any documentation of this on the website. Can you please post information about how to make a tax deductible donation?

    Enjoyed this very much. One small nit to pick: Jane Austen was writing her novels 1790-1817, nearly a century before the time period dealt with here.

    Excuse me while I go pick my jaw up off the floor. So much for polygamy being a distant part of our past.

    This episode blew my mind with the conspiracy part. In about 1985 I worked for a week doing masonry on an LDS chapel. The one we all worked for was a polygamous. I don’t know too much about him, but I didn’t think too much about it until this episode.

    My Mother was married to a man and they had 11 kids. His family was part of a polygamous group. My Mom always stayed TBM and put her foot down when her husband tried to be polygamous. Eventually she left him after 18 years. If you’re interested in her story let me know. I’m not sure I could get her to talk about it. I think it might be good. She’s 84 years old and is a great woman. I’ve pieced a lot of this together from my siblings.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas. I might also like to mention that video games have been ever before evolving. Modern tools and innovations have served create genuine and fun games. These types of entertainment video games were not that sensible when the concept was being attempted. Just like other forms of technologies, video games also have had to develop as a result of many ages. This is testimony for the fast growth and development of video games.

    Can I just say what a relief to find somebody that truly understands what they’re discussing on the internet. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people have to look at this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular because you definitely have the gift.

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you should publish more about this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but typically people don’t speak about these topics. To the next! Cheers.

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or
    vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics
    as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!
