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.
Bookmarked for later. Knowing this story, it still amazes me that people fell for it, and they still believe it today.
