Van Hale called the show and had a debate over the Adam God Doctrine on air with Art. Van says that Brigham Young's perspective on Adam God (that Adam is our God and Father) was arrived at independent of Joseph Smith but this was not true as Art points out from quotes from the Journal of Wilford Woodruff and as described in quote by Joseph Smith below: "Daniel in his 7th chapter speaks of the Ancient of Days, he meant the oldest man, our Father Adam Michael who will call his children together and hold a council with them to prepare them for the coming of the Son of Man. He (Adam) is the father of the human family, and presides over the spirits of all men and all that have had keys must stand before him in the grand council. This may take place before some of us leave this stage of action. The Son of Man stands before him, and there is given him glory and dominion. Adam delivers up his stewardship to Christ, that which was delievered to him as holding the keys of the universe but retains his standing as head of the human family. (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith pg.157)
