Joseph Smith Jr. Glass Looker and Coin Digger

The Biography of Joseph Smith Jr. - Ep. 1 The Glass Looker

This is the biographical series about Joseph Smith Jr. the founder and prophet of the Mormon faith. The first episode called "The Glass Looker" covers the early childhood of Joseph Smith as well as his treasure hunting days where he would claim to use scrying techniques with seer stones. Also it explains how Joseph Smith claimed to have recovered the Urim Thummim consisting of a breast plate, stones in silver bowls, and golden plates, although none of these objects have ever been seen and his claims are completely unsubstantiated to this very day.

I didn't know what an Urim Thummim was so I looked it up hoping it would be related to Uma Thurman.

In the Hebrew Bible, the Urim and the Thummim are elements of the hoshen, the breastplate worn by the High Priest attached to the ephod

I suggest everyone looks for these next time they get their ephods out of the cupboard. I haven't got a clue what an ephod is, so I looked it up.

let me know when it gets to the part where an angels tells him to bang his maid and the wives of his followers.
