I mean golden plates lost tribes Nephites battling Lamanites Orrin Hatch Well yes I guess one look at Tom Cruise jumping up and down on Oprah's couch suggests that Scientology has a lot to answer for as well For that matter I've never understood how a burning bush speaks to someone Why a burning bush? Why not say a burning acacia tree? But if mainstream Mormonism is a little on the far out side then fundamentalist Morm

First of all I didn't finish reading this book It was intriguing in the beginning to learn about the Fundamentalist Mormons and the interestingly odd things they believe and practice It was also interesting to contemplate the power of faith Faith in something or someone regardless of what or whom they are can make people do unbelievable things This is trueI can see how Krakauer would have been frustrated when access to historical documents and interviews with prominent LDS leaders weren't granted to him In order to tell all sides of a story you must be able to research all sides I think in the past 5 10 years the LDS church has been forthcoming and open with their history and archives thanks largely to the prophet Gordon B Hinckley So perhaps if Krakauer were to have written this book now he would not encounter these same road blocks Some people may feel that if some aspects of the churches history we
