The Spencer Audio
“Spencer”, our international man of mystery, spoke for an hour and a half at the Unblog Family Reunion. He is the LDS version of “the most interesting man in the world” except he doesn’t drink Dos Equis. He once bumped into a tree….and it apologized for getting in his way. All kidding set aside, here is the link to that audio recording. http://unblogmysoul.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/02-10-spencer.mp3
UPDATE: Spencer’s people have intentionally removed the audio link and blocked access to it (presumably because we have blown it wide open). But as if that wasn’t intriguing enough you won’t believe what they did next. They performed a magic trick that would make even David Copperfield jealous. They made Spencer “disappear”. Yep…that’s right! Despite the fact that Spencer was THE star appearance at the 2012 Unblog Family Reunion they have not only removed the audio of his 90 minute appearance, but also edited out ANY mention of Spencer from all the audio recordings. When John introduces all the speakers who will be speaking that evening you don’t even hear Spencer mentioned. You hear an awkward break in the audio like someone has obviously spliced it out. And his name is not listed amongst all the speakers who spoke that night. That’s funny stuff! I can’t wait to see what their next maneuver is…maybe a threatening letter from their legal team…ha ha. You can see and hear for yourself exactly what we’re talking about here at their blog page: http://unblogmysoul.wordpress.com/unblog-family-reunion/
2nd UPDATE: It has recently come to our attention that Spencer was hidden behind privacy partitions to hide him from the audience’s view and prevent visual identification. This would explain the odd and cryptic joke at the beginning of his comments where he quips, “I feel like I’m in the hospital ICU.” The entire audience bust out laughing because they were there in person and could see the partitions which looked similar to the ones commonly used in hospital rooms and clinics. This partially explains the nagging mystery of how so many people were in attendance at this event and yet Spencer’s identity has not been publicly “outed” after all this time. He has one of the most unique and distinguishing voices I have ever heard and his speech mannerisms are unmistakable. It’s hard to believe that almost any one who attends his home ward would not know that he’s Spencer.
We strongly encourage you to listen to the entire session as we feel it brings to light some issues and dynamics that some may feel are disconcerting. For me personally, after having listened to the audio 2 times I have even greater concerns and reservations now than I did after reading the book. They are as follows:
At the 1:09:15 marker in the recording John slips up and calls him “Stan” and doesn’t correct himself which seems to suggest that Spencer’s real name is Stan.
There are several points in the recording where Spencer seems “stumped” as though he doesn’t know how to answer the questions despite the fact that its his own account as found in the book and certainly something you would expect he’s pondered a lot in his head if its a real personal experience he’s had in a vision. For example, John asks Spencer to describe the Second Coming and Spencer just pauses for a long time and doesn’t quite know what to say and then says “how do you describe something like that”?….HELLO!! you’re the one who claimed to have the vision….its in YOUR book! Spencer then just regurgitates what any primary child would and which is found in the scriptures. You needed a vision to tell us what’s already said in the scriptures? Hmm. The moment seems a little uncomfortable and awkward and then John comes to the rescue and lets him off the hook and changes the subject to another topic about the 144,000 but AGAIN, he seems stumped and asks John to please start it off at which point John refreshes his memory about what’s recorded in the book and then Spencer seems to be able to pick up from there but using the same generic descriptions about the 144,000 that can be found anywhere in the scriptures. Then at 1:12:52 John asks him to “tell us about bringing that city to the glorified earth…that’s a wonderful story” and Spencer is again totally stumped and says “I don’t know what to say John” and there’s another long, awkward pause and John again comes to the rescue and changes the subject again and reads another question from someone in the audience asking him to comment on the ten lost tribes and his answer is just as bizarre, non-descriptive and vague as all his other answers are and not even remotely matching up with the account he gave in the book. It’s as if he (Spencer) has to to be prompted and reminded or prodded a little to get the answer going…he seems uncomfortable and hesitant at times the way you see people act who have totally made up a fictitious story and are scared they’re not gonna be able to keep their story consistent and be exposed. John is constantly throughout the session having to prod, prompt, remind Spencer….eg; “remember in the book you said” or “you told about how…”…etc. Spencer can never go on his own steam and that really concerns me as far as his veracity and authenticity goes. Listening to him speak live in person I was not at all impressed with him. I’m even more suspicious now than I was after I read the book. It isn’t like this man doesn’t know how to express himself…He has three advanced degrees and has been paid to speak professionally at speaking engagements which we also learn from his book.
The more you listen to him you keep getting the feeling like something’s a little “off” about him. He sounds like a really awful preacher. He speaks in constant generics, vague terms and Mormon cliches.
When asked about the City of Enoch, he says “they come back”…REALLY?…tell us something we didn’t already know…that’s new? He never gives details. This guy is not operating on all 8 cylinders.
Oh…and then there’s the thing about the individual grapes the size of watermelons. Let me guess…this is “Land of the Giants” and we’re the little people or are they radioactive mutations? Personally I don’t want to try and plop a grape in my mouth that’s the size of a watermelon. Do you? If its the size of a watermelon then its not a grape anymore…its something else.
HUGE RED FLAG!!! At 1:28:15 he hedges himself big-time. His very final closing comments are that these were only HIS personal experiences and that “NONE OF IT HAS TO COME TO PASS” the way he has described it. That these events of the last days may very well happen differently…. “its the Lords work…He can do what he wants.” So apparently he doesn’t have much confidence in his own visions when he has to hedge himself so much with these disclaimers. Can you imagine Joseph Smith saying, “well Christ might come but he also might not return any time soon”….Conclusion…we need to ask ourselves if we are witnessing another Paul H. Dunn fiasco. I do not doubt for one minute that Spencer’s heart is anything but well meaning and pure in his motivations to uplift and inspire people to better their lives spiritually, but guess what, so was this also true with Paul H. Dunn when he inspired the youth with his mostly phony war stories that he portrayed as actual true accounts of his life. Just because someone’s motives are well meaning and pure doesn’t make their extraordinary and outlandish claims true.
