Mithryn was a faithful member of the church for 33 years, serving as Elder’s Quorum President twice, serving an honorable mission, and raised by an amateur apologist. Spending time with his father often required long discussions of Mesoamerica, seer stones, or how fast angels can travel compared to the Starship Enterprise.
Via one thing and another, he happened to live in wards with prominent church members such as Hugh Nibley, the Edgeleys, and others of some note.
All this is to say that in his 30th year, he finally resolved to come to conclusions about some of the more relevant questions about the church, and 3 1/2 years of deep diving research later, he decided that something was wrong.
He began to post on Reddit, a forum, under a name or two giving faith-promoting posts and simply posting the history. What happened next was quite a surprise. The faithful subreddits (lds.reddit.com) were unaware of much of what he posted and called him “Antimormon” and “angry.” The exmormons not only knew much of it, but were able to discuss it openly and honestly.
Shortly thereafter he was made a moderator of exmormon.reddit.com, where he strives for intellectual honesty and accurate history while lending a sympathetic ear.
His wife still believes and they discuss religion rarely while trying to get along.
