I encourage people to attend their conference, or watch it over the Internet, so you can see for yourselves that I'm not making anything up regarding their teachings. You might find it a bit pricey--a one-day pass is $30.95 without lunch, or $42.95 with lunch, but for "S&I" it is only $10 for both days because they desperately want to maintain Mesomania as long as possible, and the best way to do that is through S&I.
Look at their agenda, on this page: https://www.fairmormon.org/conference/august-2017
I predict that they will teach the following:
1. The Church approves of Darwinian evolution
2. The best way to understand the Book of Mormon is by using an abstract map that puts Cumorah into a mythical video-game setting.
3. Cumorah cannot be in New York.
4. Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery were ignorant speculators who misled the Church about Cumorah being in New York.
5. Mesoamerican history is basically Book of Mormon history because of all the correspondences between Mesoamerica and what the text would have said had Joseph translated it correctly.
At the end of the conference, I'll review these predictions. Hopefully, my predictions will have turned out wrong.
But I doubt it.
In this preparation post, I'll point out why you should never refer people to FairMormon when they encounter anti-Mormon propaganda.
In this case, FairMormon responds to questions posed by "The Interactive Bible."
Here's the link.
FairMormon purports do to "fact checking" that results in this typical conclusion:
Think about that in the context of FairMormon's overall editorial approach. Then read their response to questions about Cumorah on this web page and see for yourselves how they carefully avoid the most important parts of Letter VII and related material in their futile effort to preserve their Mesoamerican and two-Cumorahs theory.
FairMormon goes so far as to quote from one part of Letter VII to support the idea that Oliver supported a hemispheric model, without even mentioning what Oliver said about Cumorah!
In my view, the anti-Mormon writers are far more honest in their questions than FairMormon is with its answers.
