So, we hear, they say - that Joseph Smith was a money digger, that he was a con, or a confidence trickster.
I mean, I can totally understand the viewpoint that Joseph Smith was a seedy guy and people stopped liking him.
I personally really have witnessed some kind of real magic in LDS mormonism. There is a reality to the church.
I still maintain my view that if the LDS church really is the one true church, then we're all doomed -
But it's very strange how Joseph Smith could be considered fraudulent for his history of folk magic --- yet I can see from my own perspective, I have my own witness of the reality of LDS miracles.
It makes me seem like I'm supporting something seedy, but no - I'm serious, I really have witnessed what appeared to be some kind of magic.
It makes no sense whatsoever, but it's something to think about.
And I still think we're all doomed anyway if the LDS church really is the truth. (Joseph Smith is called a confidence act, but even if he is true, I have not a lot of confidence in it)
