The conflicts and contradictions brought to light by the preceding historical evidence demonstrate that the First Vision story, as presented by the Mormon church today, must be regarded as the invention of Joseph Smith's highly imaginative mind.

 Joseph Smith's various First Vision accounts
At first, he was severely tempted by the powers of darkness, which endeavored to overcome him; but he continued to seek for deliverance, until darkness gave way from his mind, and he was enabled to pray in feverency of the spirit, and in faith.
When it first came upon him, it produced a peculiar sensation throughout his whole system; and immediately, his mind was caught away, from the natural objects with which he was surrounded; and he was enwapped in a heavenly vision, and saw two glorious personages, who exactly resembled each other in their features or likeness.
Joseph Smith, Jr., to whom the angel of the Lord was sent first, was born in the town of Sharon, Windsor County, Vermont, on the 23rd of December, 1805.

Their vision for agriculture was to feed the village---everyone in the village---and to do so in a manner that disturbed nature as little as possible.
The second vision for agriculture was brought to this continent by the Puritans in the early 1600s.
Any vision for agriculture that fails to meet these "on the ground" objectives is not likely to be sufficiently compelling to enlist the support of urban and suburban citizens.

 First Vision
The First Vision of the Prophet Joseph Smith is the beginning point, the fountainhead, of the restoration of the gospel in this dispensation.
LDS teaching is, in the words of Stephen L. Richards (a former councilor in the First Presidency), "steeped in the verity of the First Vision." It undergirds the doctrine of an anthropomorphic God and theomorphic man, of the relationships of the persons of the Godhead, and of continual revelation.
It renews the witness of the Hebrew prophets that visions are not the least but the most reliable mortal access to the divine; that the majesty, glory, and power of God are "beyond description"; that the biblical record of face-to-face communion with God is more than a strained metaphor.

 First Vision - MormonWiki
The First Vision is the name given to the seminal event in the Restoration--the visitation of God, the Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ, to Joseph Smith in the Spring of 1820.
There are several reasons that the First Vision is so important in Mormonism, but one of the most important is that it impressed upon the Prophet Joseph Smith a new understanding of the nature of God and Jesus Christ.
Thanks to the First Vision, the knowledge of the true nature of God was once again restored on the earth.

 Joseph Smith's First Vision Accounts
It is true that we have little in writing from Joseph Smith before 1832, when he wrote his earliest account of the First Vision, and it is true that the main account we use of the 1820 First Vision was written in 1838.
A newly popular argument against Joseph Smith is that the chronology of the First Vision story given in the "official" 1838 account of that event is incorrect, suggesting that he fabricated the story long after the spring of 1820, when he said that the First Vision occurred.
If the revivals that led to the First Vision actually occurred in 1824-25, then Joseph's account of the coming of the Book of Mormon was also fabricated and altered in later years, for Joseph wrote that he was visited by the angel Moroni in September of 1823.

 Mormonism Research Ministry - Articles - Which First Vision Account Should We Believe?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
This story is referred to in the LDS Church as the "First Vision." It was this vision that ultimately led Joseph Smith to organize what is today known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
In reference to this vision he said "The Lord did not come with the armies of heaven...But He did send His angel to this same obscure person, Joseph Smith jun...and informed him that he should not join any of the religions of the day, for they were all wrong;..." (Journal of Discourses 2:171).
While this vision is given in the Messenger and Advocate as the first vision of Joseph Smith, this story was later revised and published as a second vision from the angel Moroni preparatory to giving Joseph Smith the golden plates.

 LDS Mormon Joseph Smith First Vision
It's interesting to note that this boy's first vision-type story was published just before Joseph Smith's secretary wrote the "official" first vision story with the Father and the Son.
His great love of knowledge led him to take hold of every opportunity to read the most useful books, and as he was a lover of the gospel, he made himself well acquainted with the sacred writings, and even at this early age, he had become well skilled in profane as well as sacred history.
Smith's first vision story wasn't published until five years later in 1842, but it was written just after this obituary in the summer of 1838.

It was first made public by a Mormon doctoral student Paul Cheesman, in 1965 and was published that same year by Jerald and Sandra Tanner as "Joseph Smith's Strange Account of the First Vision."
This is very similar to the visions that many other individuals of that period claimed to have had, in which Jesus appeared and gave them assurance of forgiveness.
The fluctuation and inconsistency of Joseph's age when the vision occurred, the disagreement over the number of personages, the variations of who appeared, the variously divergent messages they brought, and the question of whether an evil power was or was not present, are bewildering.

 A Discussion of the Various Accounts of the First Vision   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Although no published reports of the First Vision appeared during the 1820s and 1830s, the Prophet included descriptions of his sacred experience in the grove in all four accounts of the rise of the restored Church that he wrote or dictated during the ten-year span from 1832 to 1842.
In a brief reference to the First Vision in this same diary (which because of its brevity is not included as one of the four recitals emphasized in this article), Joseph apparently told a visitor in Kirtland on 14 November 1835 that "he received the first visitation of angels" when he was about fourteen.
