Unlike most religious texts that are approached metaphorically, the Book of Mormon claims to be an historical history of the Americas, which is a verifiable claim The linguistic, anachronistic, biological, sociological, and archaeological evidence against this being a legitimate history of the Americas is monumentally staggering Pick a random field of study, and that field has numerous evidences illustrating the impossibility of this being historically accurate Even BYU s own archaeology depa Unlike most religious texts that are approached metaphorically, the Book of Mormon claims to be an historical history of the Americas, which is a verifiable claim The linguistic, anachronistic, biological, sociological, and archaeological evidence against this being a legitimate history of the Americas is monumentally staggering Pick a random field of study, and that field has numerous evidences illustrating the impossibility of this being historically accurate Even BYU s own archaeology department shut down their research into its historical accuracy in the seventies, because they didn t find anything after decades of field research Setting all of that aside, the text is derivative to the point of containing translation text errors and phrases unique to the contemporary books it borrowed chunks from mainly 1 View of the Hebrews 1825 Or the Tribes of Israel in America 2 The Late War Between the United States

My Mom gave me the Book of Mormon as a gift to me when I was still a student at Seattle University I reading it off and on for the next week or so and determined that it was an obscure history book with weird names, place names and events and in fact could even have been written by a science fiction writer especially after reading about the role of the Liahona a current day device that must have been a GPS of some sort powered by mental focus It also sounded so much like the King James Ver My Mom gave me the Book of Mormon as a gift to me when I was still a student at Seattle University I reading it off and on for the next week or so and determined that it was an obscure history book with weird names, place names and events and in fact could even have been written by a science fiction writer especially after reading about the role of the Liahona a current day device that must have been a GPS of some sort powered by mental focus It also sounded so much like the King James Version of the Bible in places that I couldn t help but think the auth
Somehow I m not surprised Orson Scott Card and Stephanie Meyer don t recognize an uninspired sequel when they see one That s my one sentence review And it came to pass that we had a talk with the neighborhood Mormons today, and they bestowed upon us the Book of Mormon And it came to pass that we are slowly making our way through it, checking to make sure we haven t too hastily judged it And it came to pass that, so far, god seems like every bit as cruel of a dictator as he ever did in Somehow I m not surprised Orson Scott Card and Stephanie Meyer don t recognize an uninspired sequel when they see one That s my one sentence review And it came to pass that we had a talk with the neighborhood Mormons today, and they bestowed upon us the Book of Mormon And it came to pass that we are slowly making our way through it, checking to make

The review process for this book has become a farce Mormons give the book 5 stars because they believe in this junk Non Mormons give it 1 star because they recognize it for the fiction that it is And so it goes.
