If You Have An Hour To Kill

Post by Minimalist »

There is a collection of "artifacts" found in Michigan in the late 19th century which has a bit of a cult following ( doesn't everything, these days?) and which is given a fair hearing in this video...before being demolished by modern science.

I had heard of this, and essentially regarded it as one more Mormon scam along the lines of the Las Lunas Stone. Still, the depth of the investigation of this was quite interesting.

Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Thanks min! I enjoyed the video. It is very well balanced & fair, examining the evidence without bias.
