Of course it's real. Dr. Scratch has informants. Dr. Peterson is toast. And, William-boy is a pony tailed ex-acid head that will get no where in the new institution.

Time to take out the trash and get a fresh new look for Mormonism, ready for the upcoming election in November.

Funny. No really... is it real?

DCP's Time/Life picture review alone could have caused this, the John Dehlin fiasco likely being the nail in the coffin.

What could they possibly say? If one of the mooks tried to bring it up, s/he would be instantly banned. And I don't know how Prof. P. could possibly spin this to make it seem cheery to that crowd.

Mike:

As far as I can tell, it's real. You can read the message for yourself: either that is the writing of Daniel C. Peterson, or somebody is a remarkably gifted forger--and not only that, but the person has an intimate knowledge (apparently) of all kinds of goings-on-behind-the-scenes at the Maxwell Institute.

FARMS started as an independent foundation. Nothing is stopping Peterson from using his connections to organize a new foundation that can do what it likes.

I still have some questions. For one: What is DCP talking about when he says that Jack Welch was "ostracized" from the MI? I know that Welch founded FARMS, but why would the MI administrators have any reason to "ostracize" him? Will Bagley once characterized Welch as "extremely belligerent," though he's mostly been very low key. Perhaps he is, as I once speculated, much more of a force for hostility amongs the Mopologists?

Out of 18 recipients of the emails, that leaves a very small group to pick the leak/mole out of. I'll bet Will could sniff them out.

If this was fake, how long would it take for DCP to respond to it at MD&D?

You think too much like I do. That is exactly what I was thinking.

Well, if he's really in Isreal... maybe quite a while?

Of course the "leaker" need not be one of the 18 -- just a
petulant nephew who has access to Uncle Peter Priesthood's
laptop -- or a faceless Vatican butler...

Not necessarily. I'm assuming that DCP CC'ed that many people because he's looking to stage a counter-attack. It could be simply that one of his "allies" shared the text with the "mole." Plus, DCP himself says that the Maxwell Institute "leaks like a sieve." I think the simple fact is that he's made too many enemies over the years, and now there is a cadre of people in power who have had enough of his antics--so much so that they are willing to "leak" information like this.

Perhaps long enough for the news to disrupt the Mormon Stories conference, which is being held this week. Timing suspicious?

That seems to me to be a real possibility. He does seem to attract negative attention.

To what end? Is the Mormon Stories conference a real attention grabber? I mean, other than the apologists throwing a hissy fit over it, what is the big deal in your view?

Not trying to be hostile, I guess I just don't see the connection.

I hardly notice Mormon Stories outside of the podcast.

Is it disrupting? Do you think that was the intent? Maybe it's just unintentional collateral damage?

Poor Bradford, GA's breathing down his neck on the one side and paid subscribers wanting their due. And yet the age old Dollar Auction and when to cut your losses seems more likely
