Swedenborgism? That flaky cult? So he’s like a Proto-Mormon. I bet they get along.

So he’s like a Proto-Mormon.

He reminds me of Smith, and in fact a faithful Mormon scholar, Craig Miller has wrote a lengthy paper titled "Did Swedenborg Influence Mormon Doctrine?." Miller lists 19 unique similarities between Swendenborg's fantasy of a "Celestial Kingdom" and that of Joseph Smith's imagination. http://craigwmiller.tripod.com/interest.htm#Unique%20Similarities

And you'd be right!

Let's see if any MORMONs want to come out to play...
