I was just reading a rebuttal of Grant Palmer’s “Sexual Allegations against Joseph Smith and the Beginnings of Polygamy in Nauvoo” by Brian C. Hales and Gregory L. Smith.

In it, they critiqued Grant Palmer's methodology with the following charges:

1. Factual inaccuracies.
2. Quoting historical sources without establishing the credibility of the documents.
3. Ignoring contradictory evidence.
4. Ignoring the most recent scholarship.

Can these charges also be applied to apologetic works? Are there any examples of this ever happening?

I actually replied on that article and they deleted it. Not at first, they posted it, replied to it then deleted both posts and would not let me comment again.

See this thread... viewtopic.php?f=1&t=35963
