    You had me until you say science has discredited the flood and so forth. No it surely has not.

    I am a very strong member of the church. I love normal things such as starwars as an example. I’m a human too. Those who see this video and it turns their faith away, I’m very sorry for what you are missing out on. Back then the lord said paligamy was ok (at the time) becuase most men had died so their family could live on the prineer trips. There wern’t enough men to women, so he said it was ok. Now it’s not because there are enough of each gender. Also a very common saying is that humans aren’t perfect. These prohets are human. They can mess up. That says nothing about if the church is true or not.
    People will find what their looking for, so If you are looking to make the church of jesus christ of latter day saints look bad, then you will find stuff on it.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true and only true church upon the face of the Earth

    The first 5 “points” including the DNA assumptions, are off the mark.

  5. Isaac Silva on April 16, 2020 at 5:33 pm

    I know this church is true!!!

  6. Sam Wilcox on April 16, 2020 at 5:34 pm

    God makes the rules for his church, not man. God clearly said through his prophets that those of African decent have black skin because they were not as righteous in the preexistence. I know this view is not popular with society today, but its the truth, and who are we to question god. Today the church has received revelation that all men are equal, so the curse has been lifted.

  7. Jack The Oreo Man on April 16, 2020 at 5:36 pm

    1:58 back then it was Normal to be a polygamist and now days polygamy is no longer part of the Mormon church

  8. Jamail Ellis on April 16, 2020 at 5:38 pm

    I am 14 and a mormon by my mom forcing me. We are basically shackled to the church because they pay our rent and give us food. I don’t believe in what there saying and was baptized in a catholic church as an infant and I wish there was a way out for me. My mom is clearly getting brainwashed and my stomach is turning thinking about the fact that until I’m 18 (4 years time) I am forced to talk to, put up with, and devote my life to dead-eyed, fake smiling, Charles Manson cousin, creepy two face people.

  9. Melody Veylupek on April 16, 2020 at 5:39 pm

    That is a hoax!!

  10. Professor Statisyahu on April 16, 2020 at 5:40 pm

    This doesn’t prove anything. Brigham Young is a hero and he started a University!

  11. SABATA MAPETLA on April 16, 2020 at 5:41 pm

    So scientists prooved there was no flood, great, just great

  12. colin mccarthy on April 16, 2020 at 5:43 pm

    I am a Roman Catholic and we do not have
    the problems in the Catholic Church.I ask
    all Mormons to come Catholic’s.

  13. rationalguy on April 16, 2020 at 5:45 pm

    I left it. It’s got a lot of problems. They use guilt and shame as mind-control tools, and they’re very good at it. Do your research before falling for their stuff.

  14. Michael B on April 16, 2020 at 5:46 pm

    The Book of Mormon is the tangible evidence of latter day revelation, "a man can get closer to God by reading the Book of Mormon. It testifies of Christ more than any other book.

  15. Spoof Creations Comics on April 16, 2020 at 5:47 pm

    I am an active mormon. This hurts really bad.Stop doing this.

  16. James Nutt on April 16, 2020 at 5:48 pm

    The bang is a theory

  17. Sodapopinski on April 16, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    although i am not going to take any of this as fact, being a questioning Mormon… it concerns me. i would like decent well researched arguments AGAINST these claims, but members just testify of their faith in the church instead of logical counter arguments against these facts. It’s all so confusing, and i feel like i’m being emotionally pulled in different directions

  18. Moe Disappointed on April 16, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    When you don’t know what your talking about and u get all off the web

  19. Rangatiratūmeke on April 16, 2020 at 5:50 pm

    I remember telling one of those young Morman elders that Joseph Smith was a convicted fraudster. The young elder claimed it is all lies. It hope he brings himself to just look for himself.

  20. Marchitect on April 16, 2020 at 5:50 pm

    I’ve already been through most of these topics on my own. None of them sway my testimony. It’s too bad this video isn’t a portion as strong at persuading me as feeling the Spirit bring me joy and hope for becoming a better person everyday. 🙂

  21. Brynn H on April 16, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    Okay, this is just plain offensive. Why would anyone ever make videos about other religions on how wrong they are? Have you ever even been to their church? You can’t talk crap about other people’s religions like that. You don’t even know what it truly is like to be a part of that church. Be a decent person please and respect religion.

  22. Will Bean on April 16, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon in around 60-70 days…. there is no way someone of his socioeconomic status, education and age could have written a book of that caliber, length, and detail in that time period. Especially with only ONE draft with relatively minor corrections by Joseph smith. There was one draft. Prove that wrong.

  23. Alyanna Caitlin Villanueva on April 16, 2020 at 5:52 pm

    Hey I don’t know if this true but we all Mormons are quite and humble if others don’t like us we pray for them but why you guys treating us unfairly you should thank Joseph Smith.. You know why because he brings back the true church of christ. Hope you all understand.. God bless you and your family and friends 😌

  24. C. Woody on April 16, 2020 at 5:54 pm

    I’m a member and I know what is true and the things in this video are wicked and much of these are merely theories

  25. Gerber Aparicio on April 16, 2020 at 5:56 pm

    What a liars !!!!!! I can believe this people claim to be Christians and said such big lies !!!! WOW

  26. xavier andres vera bueno on April 16, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    Are you trying to lie to lie the people?
    Im a member of this church and i know its true.
    Bc i asked god nobody told me what i should do.
    I received my answer from god.
    And im so glad to know that we have tha true church in the world…
    I think you’re confused and you are trying to say or reveal what you think its true.
    But you are wrong.
    I hope you can find the truth and love.
    Love you

    Another title might be: Guess which of these 50 logical sounding critiques have validity and which one’s have been around for more than 50 years despite being disproven time and time again. One of the "facts" portrayed in this video was actually disproven back in the 1830’s but somehow this myth of a critique keeps enduring. I would recommend researching and cutting out several points that have been disproven as they undercut the video and make it weaker as a whole.

    Nice work on the editing, narration, and use of images. If, I was grading the video essay I’d score it a solid B+ to A- in the creation of the film, but C to D- in the research category. Some of your points are well thought out and researched and some are simply repeated from sources that have long been disproven.

  28. Eric Husayn on April 16, 2020 at 6:01 pm

    Can’t wait til they come to my door next time.

  29. ardyn lenin ramirez madriz on April 16, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    The 50 issues to this is nothing to do with the Church of JesusChrist of Latter-Day Saints, ERRORS ARE ALL TO JOSEPH SMITH Please human race understand once it for all The church was not founded by man , Joseph Smith was USED to restore the churchbecuse he had the common sense to know that no church on the earth has no Gods Authority at all if he did something not right that is his doing but not church in this earth can say we great terstimony or fear ask god ask him about the book of mormon ask him if he is not the one who governs the church so you can go ahead and talk ill about joseph smith I dont care on that , But I do care to that no churc h not even the catholic church can say its the kingdom of god on earth and if you ask god in the name of jesusrchrist the hpoly ghost will let you know and I will repeat Joseph Smith is not the pilar of my Faith and Ia m so glad I am not in church that was founded by men

  30. James Nutt on April 16, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    I’m not Mormon my best friend was and her family was kind and caring to me. So you believe in the Big Bang theory? I am Christian my entire life have been cared for by my Lord Savior Jesus Christ, to many miracles in my family.

  31. Uhhh Ray on April 16, 2020 at 6:04 pm

    Honestly I can’t say for sure as a member that I know the Joseph Smith stuff is true but believing that there is at least a greater being there to support you and that death isn’t the end gives me hope and a purpose for this life. It has helped me through a lot of hard times. So no, I can’t say for sure that Joseph Smith’s history is true but the overall doctrine that the church teaches has helped me to at least be a better person and that’s all that really matters to me. If I strive to live to my best potential then that’s up to God to judge, and as long as I do that, believing in this history doesn’t really matter.

  32. joe pipisitoface on April 16, 2020 at 6:04 pm

    but atheism is miserable & hopeless.

  33. Daniel Brown on April 16, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    Did anyone else who grow up mormon hate when they would show you an arch and say the BOM is the keystone that holds it all together? I didn’t like this analogy because all the stones would make the arch fall if removed. It’s the same with real life. I have studied the book of mormon thoroughly and agree that it is a masterpiece of literature. BUT I’m not going to jump to conclusions that everything else is justified in the church and god is a man who lives on kolob.

  34. Cole Coffman on April 16, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    I cannot stress this enough…MORMONS ARE Not CHRISTIANS WE DO NOT CLAIM THEM

  35. Haumana Tukuafu on April 16, 2020 at 6:14 pm

    To "the Mormon informant," you’re wrong with many of your 50 claims. First of all, as Americans we do know that there were Elephants (mammoths), horses, camels, including wild cattle (which were discovered, frozen in arctic tundra) during the Holocene period in the Americas.
    So you’re definitely wrong there. You’re wrong a lot in here.

  36. Scott Jessen on April 16, 2020 at 6:15 pm

    Guess we will all find out someday!

  37. Sam Wilcox on April 16, 2020 at 6:16 pm

    Joseph Smith never had sex with his plural wives! You people need to learn the difference between sealing for time and eternity. Those who think Joseph married all these women because he wanted to have sex with them need to reevaluate their own morals. Just because you are obsessed with sex doesn’t mean brother Joseph felt that way. He was only following gods commandments.He was a righteous man who loved god and his dear wife Emma. He didnt even want to practice plural marriage but the lord commanded it of him.

  38. Luis Ventura on April 16, 2020 at 6:18 pm

    BYU needs to change their name

  39. Myron Woodruff on April 16, 2020 at 6:19 pm

    I am a mormon. Dont believe everything you see on the web. God bless.

  40. Ginger Bee Studios on April 16, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    Did you even do any research because there are so many things that you said that contradicted eachother. I’m not even going to bother with this. It’s just proof that there are so many rumors that people are just assuming they are factual. This is despicable and disrespectful in every way.

  41. k p on April 16, 2020 at 6:22 pm

    Ya those darn kind , giving , caring, generous lds members are way out there….how many videos has the church made to refute your videos?
    Howmany videos have they made to refute other churches? 0
    Daddy issues for sure?

  42. Cole Coffman on April 16, 2020 at 6:22 pm

    You have a couple of things wrong bout Christianity

  43. The Way on April 16, 2020 at 6:22 pm

    Science has proven there was a world wide flood… smh

  44. SuperLocoloco69 on April 16, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    100 issues with your mind.

  45. Lawz Mainz on April 16, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    please anybody here can go and find out what happen to those who criticised or mobbed Joseph Smith and the church then you will believe the Lord Jesus Christ prophets

  46. Wayne Kinne on April 16, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    The same can be said for the New and Old Testaments, nothing of them can be proven. They say the world is flat, they say the earth is only 6000 years old, a woman turned into salt, a boy killed a giant, Moses parted the Red Sea, a snake talked, Christ raised himself from the dead, I could go on forever. All that really matters is what God wants for us to believe, our time should be spent building up faith in God, not destroying it. Satin worship is real, how much time is spent exposing it? Child molestation is real, wouldn’t our time be better spent fighting it than a Church that feeds the poor after a hurricane in Louisiana? Can you name a perfect religion? Spend your time serving our Savior Jesus Christ, not tearing others down.

  47. Jason Wharton on April 16, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    Bunch of non-sense.

  48. Vickie C on April 16, 2020 at 6:27 pm

    You know I absolutely do not believe in Mormonism, but take note the person making this video is an obviously an atheist.

    It is really very sad that you get your joy out of spreading lies and falsehoods about the Lord,s church, the only church that has the fullness of the gospel. For anyone who reads this, I would like to tell you that a!most all of the "information" in this article is of the blackest falsehoods. The person or persons who created this this is lying to you and this is all of the devil! . Read in the Book of Mormon towards the back of the book Moroni chapter 10 verses 3 -5 and prove the Lord, and take him at His word. People may lie to you but the Lord never will. O repent he repent he why will he did?
