This fact is, perhaps, the greatest embarrassment of all times to Seventh-day Adventists. Bacchiocchi's book, From Saturday to Sunday, Dr. Bacchiocchi concedes AD as the latest date for the universal abandonment of Sabbath-keeping by Christians.
In an attempt to explain away this thorny fact, FairMormon suggests that God Himself may have revealed the errors to Joseph. This bizarre explanation, which would surely be unpalatable to the average Chapel Mormon, is contradicted by common sense as well as by the notion that the Book of Mormon is the most correct book on earth.
FairMormon attempts to rationalize this fact by claiming that not all Native American Indians descended from Lehi. And FairMormon cannot simply argue that Joseph Smith misunderstood the connection.
Joseph Smith claimed to have been taught about the origins of Native Americans by the angel Moroni — an ancient American inhabitant himself. FairMormon likewise confirms or otherwise ignores key anachronisms in the Book of Mormon, such as the existence of steel, wheat, horses, and many more items.
Given the current state of archaeological understanding, experts would absolutely expect to find these items, had they actually existed. Indeed, no respectable non-Mormon institution including the National Geographic and Smithsonian institutions or scholar that has considered the historicity of the Book of Mormon deems it a historical record.
Although FairMormon contends that certain items previously thought to have been anachronisms have since been found, FairMormon has not provided credible evidence and sources to support its extraordinary and amazing claims.
FairMormon tries to obfuscate the issue by noting that some place names were also included in the Bible and that other place names were not included in the Book of Mormon at all.
The point is that there are a striking number of names in the Book of Mormon, that appear to match the names of places surrounding Palmyra during the time at which the Book of Mormon was produced.
Finally, FairMormon fails to refute the claim that the original version of the Book of Mormon and even the current version, to a lesser extent teaches the doctrine of Trinitarianism. FairMormon implicitly concedes that Joseph Smith and the early saints were Trinitarian.
There is no contemporary evidence refuting this point, and there is ample evidence confirming it. If one assumes that FairMormon's undisputed silence is acceptance of the facts, FairMormon agrees with Breakdown can be found here. Matthew Roper in a FairMormon Blog on June 17,writes about a criticism repeated many times over the years about the mention of steel in the Book of Mormon.
Who but as ignorant a person as Rigdon would have perpetuated all these blunders. Jeremy's Response Elder Christofferson creates the following strawman: The problem lies in the fact that no ancient American steel tools or weapons or traces or evidence of them or their manufacture have ever been found.
Elder Christofferson is using a strawman by sidestepping the actual argument that no steel has ever been found in ancient America and refuting a weaker argument that steel was not capable of being manufactured at the time of Lehi. The Book of Mormon describes vast battles, with military forces dwarfing those of the Roman Empire the Roman military maxed out aroundsoldiers involving the heavy use of metallurgy.
Contrary to the accounts in the Book of Mormon, not a single steel sword, helmet, armor, chariot, spear, etc. There is zero evidence for the argument Elder Christofferson failed to address.
No steel has ever been found in ancient America. That steel was manufactured in the seventh century BC in the Middle East has no bearing on whether steel was manufactured or used on a massive scale in ancient America, as depicted in the Book of Mormon.
The notion that the absence of evidence is evidence of absence is not just a rule of thumb — it is a law of Probability Theory. You know that there are no steel artifacts in that area.
Here is an analogy to further illustrate this point: And here's an even more obvious analogy: Someone claims that they keep an elephant in their garage. A perfectly normal and visible large gray elephant. You go to look and you cannot see any elephant.Sabbathgate By Kerry Wynne.
