Humor: Evolutionary Dynamics Among 19th and 20th Century Homo Sapiens: A Mormon Example

A Mormon Example This session not only explores the “E” word and the fear of its usage among Mormons; it also combines wide-ranging irrefutable demonstrations of the observable incidents of Mormon evolution through explorations of physical culture (72 hour kits, swimsuits, horns, and luggage), Mormon social history (the bickering of my own neurotic family), and twenty years of Mormon archival research (in the cartoons published in Sunstone). The presenter then charts the evolution of individual things Mormon as a mirror of the decline and fall of the human race.
