This Saturday, a host of speakers and individual researchers will gather in Rexburg to offer their views on a variety of scientific subjects related to the Book of Mormon, archeology, and more.
The all-day event will take place at Madison Middle School from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. where Dean Sessions, Rod Meldrum, Russ Barlow, and Jacob Householder will speak to anyone interested in attending.
“Many people who have seen [the presentation] have just really been blown away about how this,” Meldrum said.
The ticketed event, presented by the group called Preparing a People, is titled Book of Mormon Evidence and A Universal Model of Science. Sessions said the research that led to the creation of this group began 30 years ago when he was a student at Brigham Young University.
Sessions became interested in physics first in high school. That continued through his education and professional life, eventually evolving into his fulltime pursuit.
“This is one of the fundamental, foundational points of our new science, to question everything with an open mind,” said Sessions.
That pattern of questioning has led Sessions and his counterparts to take interest in a variety of academic subjects.
One of those counterparts, Rod Meldrum, will present specifics on what he believes to be physical evidence for the setting and location of the Book of Mormon. This includes fossil dating, rock analysis and more results from private experiments.
Part of what Meldrum will speak about is taken from a general conference talk given by President Gordon B. Hinckley in which he said the Book of Mormon is as current as the daily news.
“I realized the reason why it’s more current than the daily news can only go up to what is happening up to this point, but the Book of Mormon actually looks into the future,” Meldrum recalled.
All private researchers, Meldrum and Sessions will speak with their colleagues Jacob Householder and Russ Barlow.
Ticket prices for the event vary, and there is an option to stream the event online through their website. For more information visit preparingapeople.com.
