I am interested in having a discussion regarding the archaeological evidence for the Book of Mormon's claims. First, I am curious what some might already know or think they know regarding this. I am a believer in the LDS church and the BOM. Most claim that there is not a shred of archaeological evidence for Reformed Egyptian and the Book of Mormon. Have you studied these claims yourself? What makes you so sure? I used to believe such because I read antimormon books that said that and they would never just downright lie would they? Looking in the face of the Ten Commandments written in Hebrew and some Greek dating back to B.C. in Central America I'm pretty surprised. Seeing Papyrus Amherst 63 discovered in the 1950's proving that Reformed Hebrew DOES exist 100 years after Joseph Smith could have had a clue I'm impressed. Seeing in Mayan archaeology a contraption fashioned for rolling foil-like sheets of gold for writing I'm stunned- this was even before Joseph Smith could have known about it. Finding swords (macahuitls) as well as other metallurgy among the Aztecs fits it well. As well as an artifact discovered in Arizona that was presumably Cherokee, but was later found to be in Hebrew. The history of native americans being at war with each other's tribes... the Central american civilizations... it fits the Book of Mormon. I'm curious what others thoughts on these are. Of course, if you've rejected the Book of Mormon, you HAVE looked into all this right? It might be another testament of God's revelation, and so if you have rejected it, you have already worked out refutations of these evidences of course. Because antimormon authors didn't know they existed so you can't count on their expertise. I would recommned checking into it. To reject the prophets of God offhand and their message without checking it first is dangerous.
