Panel Discussion

Posted October 17th, 2018

What happens when a Street Epistemologist sits down to atheist-convert two Mormon Missionaries who have sat down to Mormon-convert him?  It’s a wild wacky panel discussion full of laughs and groans and cognitive distortions of all shapes and sizes.  Enjoy.

Ep 525 – Culture vs. Doctrine

Smackdown

Posted October 4th, 2018

What is the difference between Mormon culture and “the gospel?”  You don’t have to be anti-mormon-crusader-extraordinaire Jeremy Goff or privately censured General Authority Ronald E. Poelman to see there is a distinction between the culture and the gospel.  Unless of course you remove the biasing blinders from your eyes and finally see that there really is no distinction at all.  Listen in as Glenn smacks down another goofy video from Jeremy Goff and revisits the Elder Poelman 1984 kerfuffle. This episode will change the way you eat green jello!

Ep 524 – Believing Parents

Panel Discussion

Posted September 30th, 2018

How do you relate to believing parents when it is clear that you no longer believe in many things that are most important to them?  Would you give your believing father a priesthood blessing even after resigning from the Mormon church?  Matt and his wife Kristin talk to Tom about the difficulty of connecting and communicating with our believing parents and share a recent example of a challenging but incredibly rewarding act of love.  Matt’s “So Many Later’s” Spotify Playslist.
