Ep 480 – Seven Deadly Heresies: The Smackdown, Part 3

Smackdown

Posted April 29th, 2018

Have you ever thought that getting married/sealed in the temple guarantees your salvation?  WRONG!  What about the thought that baptisms for the dead give sinners a second chance at redemption?  WRONG AGAIN!  Don’t get complacent!  Don’t start thinking you are doing just fine!!  Don’t ever ever ever ever think that you don’t need the CHURCH or the BIG AND IMPORTANT leaders (ever)!  Listen in as Glenn, John, Randy, Bob, and special guest Mike Tannehill smack down the 3rd and 4th most deadly of heresies as outlined with absolute certainty by an infallible apostle of Jesus Christ.  (Irony?  Hyperbole? Facetiousness?  Where???)

Ep 435 – The Religion of Science? – Part 1

Panel Discussion

Posted January 16th, 2018

What does it mean to be open-minded vs. closed-minded?  We experienced some kind of “open vs. closed” clash of ideologies when we challenged and deconstructed the dogmas of Mormonism, right?  So what do we do with that now?  And what about the accusations that some of us simply substituted the cultural dogmas of Mormonism for the cultural dogmas of Science?

Listen in as Randy totally keeps his cool (eh hem…) while joining Glenn, John, Lindsay, and Matt in a discussion of Rupert Sheldrake’s 2012 “Banned Ted Talk” about the 10 dogmas of a Scientific Materialist Worldview.  And don’t miss the special easter egg parody about the press conference announcing the new LDS Prophet at the end.

Ep 401 – Weird Nutty Mormon History

Lightmindedness

Posted September 17th, 2017

How many Mormon Priesthood leaders does it take to rob a train? Which LDS prophet was poisoned a few days after attending a Bohemian Club in San Fransisco? Kenneth Lines has found a lot of nutty things in Mormon History. Just nutty, I tell ya. And he talks about a lot of them with Glenn, Bob, and John Hamer. And the nuttiest part is that you get to listen.
