Click to Listen: Episode 60: Helaman 14-16

For our 60th episode, we are joined by Philip Wells from SAB Books who is in the process of writing The Skeptic’s Annotated Book of Mormon.  And then we get back into Helaman where we learn about some incredible astronomical and meteorological phenomenon that supposedly occurred in the America’s during the birth and death of Jesus. Oh, and then zombies get referenced again, but once again we don’t really get any good zombie details.

“Drink” Count – 28

    I’m not sure which is the greatest miracle, that arrows could not hit Samuel the Lamanite, that he could jump off the city wall without getting hurt or killed, or that the offended Nephites would let him blather on for three straight chapters (and still trying most of that time to shoot him?) before finally sending the guards after him.

    Get episode, David. It’s practically Christmas in America (after 600 years)!


  4. Scott Gines Says:

    So at this point in the book, it certainly appears that Joseph is running into some severe writers block.

    Start noticing just how many times there will be a declaration of a year, and then “nothing happened”, then the next year, “nothing happened”, etc.

    I can only imagine Joseph, head in hat, speaking to Martin:

    “And in the forty and fifth year of the reign of the judges”….. really long pause why Joseph tries to think of something that happened. Nothing coming to mind. This is getting awkward now. Gotta say SOMETHING…. “nothing happened. And, behold, in the forty and sixth year…”
