according to the Book of Mormon
"according to the Book of Mormon..."
One interesting point that should be discussed with Mormons is the fact that the BOM contains some 27,000 words taken directly from the King James Version of the Bible. This in itself presents a rancid problem for the BOM. We are told that the BOM was written between 600 B.C. and A.D. 421. So how did 1611 Elizabethan English words get in the BOM? A question, I think, that is inescapably awkward for Mormon missionaries to deal with.
In fact there are many places in the BOM where whole verses are plagiarized word for word from the KJV. These are but a few of the many plagiarized verses that the BOM contains. The fact is, there is not a single shred of anything that could even come close to validating the BOM. First of all, the BOM talks of great wars in which hundreds and thousands were killed yet no one has found any evidence of these wars.
Also, what about all the BOM locations and structures? Where is the proof? For example: where is the "land of Moron, north of the great land of Desolation?" (Ether 7:5, 6; BOM). Where is the evidence for a "King Moron?" Has any BOM town or land, ever been found? The answer categorically is NO! Book of Mormon
