Today my supervisor & a bunch of us were at lunch talking about the late-nite radio show COAST TO COAST A.M. Then he asked us if we knew whatever became of one of the shows guests called Glenn Kimball. We all knew who he meant, but we didn't know anything recent. One woman said she heard he died in 2010. An older guy said Kimball had gone into seclusion in ill health somewhere in southern Illinois. We checked the Internet & nothing on his whereabouts. One website showed that he died in 2010, according to his "daughter." But another 2011 website said Kimball left the USA in disgrace over being found not to be college degreed or a true scholar. Has anyone out there heard about this Kimball guy?

Glenn Kimball is supposedly deceased (2010). I've listened to "Coast to Coast" on late night radio for over 20 years and Kimball was a guest many times. That radio show had his biography posted on its website & Kimball claimed to be a PhD and scholar, but many doubted it.

As I recall, one of the hosts of "Coast to Coast" years ago questioned Kimball's claim as an expert in early Christianity. Kimball had a BA in communications, but his claim for a PhD was unverified in the National Directory of Higher Education Degrees. He never divulged what academic discipline his alleged PhD was for. And his claim to be an instructor or professor at Southern Illinois University was also unverifiable when the school's personnel department was queried and replied that he never taught there. One problem was that he advocated the use of fabricated ancient texts that even the leading Catholic scholars knew were bogus texts. It was in 2003 that some legitimate scholars posted an expose on the Internet of Glenn Kimball's bogus credentials and ignorance of scholarly research protocols. However, he was indeed a degreed journalist, but not a legitimate scholar of ancient history. This is all old news.

I'm a fan & listener of Coast to Coast radio. And I recall Glenn Kimball's interviews on the show going back several years. I taped some of his shows on Christ & the New Testament years ago. Some of his claims seemed pretty wild and far-fetched. Then the ancient writings he referred to turned out to be fake or fabrications when I took the time to research them. And he kept referring to them in later shows on Coast to Coast as though they were legitimate ancient texts! Man, what a character! Why wouldl he spread all that fake information? Is he really dead now?

Glenn Kimball is dead?? Over the past 15 or so years, I've listened to Kimball as a guest of "Coast to Coast" radio show with disbelief in his professionalism.

As a professional historian, I have serious doubts about Mr. Kimball's professional credentials and his research methodology. Even Dr. Robert Ghost Wolf exposes Kimball's activities & the truth about his alleged academic career and non-existent advanced degrees on Dr. Ghost Wolf's website: www.robertghostwolf.com/kimball.htm So you can read the results for yourself of an investigation into Glenn Kimball's background by other professional colleagues of Dr. Ghost Wolf.

I am distressed as to why George Noory, host of "Coast to Coast AM" radio show continues to replay past recorded shows of Mr. Kimball who conveys misinformation and unscholarly practices during his interviews. If Mr. Kimball (notice I do not call him Doctor Kimball!) is truly deceased, Mr. Noory should retire those interviews from public airings.

Glenn Kimball the pseudo-scholar is dead. Today I checked on the website of Dr. Robert Ghost Wolf about the investigation into Kimball's background too. I learned that Kimball was not employed at Southern Illinois University as a teacher/instructor/educator/pr ofessor and did not achieve the PhD as claimed. The college he founded, Kimball College, is not an accredited educational institution. Was he a fraud or just a delusional New Age opportunist?

What an incredible load of nonsensical BS. To be so arrogant as to assume because one doesn't have a PhD one cannot produce credible research, I find nauseatingly arrogant.
I have worked with PhD scholars who literally did not know how to use a wrench.
However, Astronomy is filled with amateurs and have produced excellent results and discoveries.
Has anyone of you academia snobs made as much of an impact as this man? I doubt it somehow.
Universities are filled with wannabes and shouldabeens. If Glenn managed to get people to think about this subject, then praise the Lord....

As an addendum to the above post,I have just read again a couple of sentences from Glenn's book "Hidden stories of the childhood of Jesus" and he puts the point far more succinctly than I ever could.

"They (the academics)have their own faithless hidden agendas which have all but taken the miracle out of the most miraculous event in history"

Well said Glenn.

I'm sad to just find out Mr. Kimball has passed away. His claim to phd. Is irrelevant to me, what was important was his ability to bring attention to a subject that has been marred by secrecy, hidden agendas and flat out deliberate failure of dissemination of the truth...
Truth can stand on its own two feet, who needs the blessing of academias highly educated derrilicts to make sence of the truth for me.... I can do that all by myself...
I love all his books and audios.... so what that he lied about a phd, he was a Historian that actually made a difference in an area that could careless about bringing the truth to those who need it...
I quote Brian Tracy in saying, "50 niche specific books on a subject is the equivalent to a phd" , minus all the b.s. prerequisits.... that can be accomplished in a single year @ an 1 hour a day. Listening to audio tapes in your car.... phd's & mba's like to belabor the grandiosity of what it is that they accomplished so as to exclude the effort of those that may even dare to think they could achieve a similar result.

Glenn is my older brother, he dies of sorocis of the liver in 2011 in Phoenix, Arizona. He left behind a spouse, two sons, two daughters and several grandchildren. Glenn was a troubled soul with a huge heart, a quick wit, terrific sense of humor and a deep love for his family. I'll miss his stories, his brotherly advice and being astonished when I would stumble onto his voice on the radio.

I totally agree ! I have run into many PhD's that have the paper and degree but are terribly inept at doing anything with simple hands on & common sense.
My husband & I attended several presentations and talked with Glenn personally many times. He was well educated in his realm. He knew his stuff ! He traveled, communicated with many, and had hands on with these transcripts. There were several BYU fans and members of FARMS who were offended by his blunt truths. Glenn was very knowledgeable, easy to talk to and kind heart ed. He will be missed.

You are right, this is the same angle used by evolutionists. If you aren't secularly educated, you can't speak against secular beliefs. If you are secularly educated but don't believe what the secular educational system teaches, you still can't speak against it. I work with the same PHD types. They are often only smart in one area, and are just as biased as any one else.

However, after listening to Kimball I realized two things. He did indeed put a lot of faith on bogus texts, and was very biased against the Bible. He spent a good chunk of time trying to discredit the Bible. Then I heard him admit on air he had 'visitors' with the most appealing blue eyes he'd ever seen show up one day to encourage him to finish his book no one knew he was writing. Hmmm....

Mormons did tend to like Kimball more because he appealed to the Book of Mormo, so it wasn't really about facts, but rather the idea he appealed to their belief system. Mormonism also encourages truth by INSPIRATION rather than truth by VERIFICATION, so it's a double wammy against actual facts.

Glenn's dissertation was so entailed, no one could judge it or reply to it. He has always been a very deep thinking person since he was a little boy. He graduated from Southern Illinois University and taught a undergraduate class when there wasn't a professor available to teach. He spent a couple of years trying to get his dissertation approved and no one was capable or even could address his subject. He finally left and went to work to support his wife and 3 kids at the time.
He died a few years ago from the liver damage he acquired while on a LDS Mission in Bolivia. He contracted Hepatitis C which was what killed him. He left behind hundreds of CD's he used in Kimball College and they still exist today. He wrote for the History and Discovery Channels... and his best sellers were "Hidden Stories of the Childhood of Christ" and "Politics Around the Crucifixion."
He is now noted as one of the most brilliant historians to ever existed... but he had to die to be appreciated. He was a most humble and sweet father, grandfather, husband and father. His mother is still alive and stayed by his side along with his sweet wife Rosa until he passed.
He left behind his work and should he be alive today, there would be plenty more doors opened to facts about ancient history. And just this week, the news said the parchment about Jesus's wife was authenticated. He wrote about that in his book.
Those who demean his abilities are ignorant and thoughtless and don't really know what an amazing historian we lost.... they should try to do the same work he did if they think they can.... sad people out there.

I worked for/with Glenn's father over 45 years ago and thought he was a very interesting man. Glenn definitely got me thinking on many intriguing questions and subjects. I wish I could have spent more one on one time with him.

Kimball family,
I have Glenn's books and a few of his CD's, the website for the College is gone and I have searched to find where I can purchase more of Glenn's works. It is sad to lose access to his life works. If these are available, please let me know who to contact.
Regards, John

Dear Lynda,
I have always been a huge fan of Glenn Kimball and love his work. He truly was one of the best historians in modern times, and he deserves much respect. I don't pay any attention to ignorant fools who speak in an offensive manner about Glenn. They don't even deserve any attention at all. I've collected countless of radio interviews Glenn did, and even purchased some of his audios from his Kimball College website. I would love to get the entire collection, but this website is no longer active. I really hope that Chase Kimball will make these available to people again.
