Infants on Thrones – Bill Reel & Glenn IOT EP 518

Glenn sits down with fellow sorta-Mormon podcaster Bill Reel to talk about podcasting, the reasons why he eventually left the church, and what he now thinks about Life, the Universe, and God

DISCLAIMER: Glenn titled the episode “Bill Reel: Why I left the Mormon Church and what I now think about God”.  It should be noted that I (Bill Reel) didn’t create that title and while I am not bothered by it, it also is not my personal framing for what happened.

  1. Oh Bill, you’re so much better than these guys. You didn’t have to lower yourself to do this

    • Don, I haven’t listened to much of IoT, and so I initially thought it would be irreverent and disrespectful. I was actually very impressed with this discussion. I loved it.

    • What’s wrong with IOT? They cuss more? Been out of the church longer? They are just a group and intelligent people sharing thought provoking ideas with some humor now and then, same as Mormon Discussions

  2. What would have happened if Joseph Smith lived on?
    Would he had imploded or gone on to achieving more power?

    I think if JS had it his way he would have included Polygamy (polyandry) for women as well. Too bad (or good) that Emma would have none of it.

  3. Its interesting to me how we live in the classical physics (CF) arena, measuring everything from that perspective, including the question about “God”.

    Now,…I have mixed feelings about “God” because from the current religious perspective that fights with CF, problems happen. But its interesting that both religion and CF folks stack the deck against things they can’t explain–especially when it threatens the world view they hold.

    Glenn and Bill…there are TENS OF THOUSANDS OF NEAR DEATH SURVIVORS who all say something exists outside of the CF and fundamental religionist perspectives. Why is it so easy to discount those perspectives?

    I’m not picking on the pod-cast — it was interesting; but I am just perplexed why, before formulating opinions on things like the existence of “a god” (or perhaps creator of our reality), all the data isn’t consulted.

    CF and fundamental religionist set themselves up as the ONLY two viable options allowed, when in reality there are other possibilities (and if you ask me, some pretty compelling evidence as well).

    Just my $0.02

  5. Love this interview, Bill, so revealing as to your and others’ journeys seeking truth which does indeed set us free. I love your choice of Infants on Thrones to interview you here, a name which typifies the spoiled/entitled child nature which leaders naturally adopt to maintain control of all dumb enough to give in to their threats, noise, tantrumning and demands. By their fruits…

  6. I’ve heard of healing stories, but never saw it. I know of Mormons who “commanded” someone to live, who died. Mormon apostles and prophets work ZERO miracles.

    Doctor Dahesh of Lebanon was a true Prophet, and he worked supernatural miracles DAILY, with eye-witnesses writing of what happened. Google “Doctor Dahesh” and read.

  7. “I will only believe in God, if God is pro-gay and pro-Feminist and pro-Democrat”.

    • I will only believe if men who claim to be prophets but who seemingly have zero access to God magic or even seem to be accurate in their views holding up over time tell me to believe something.
