  1. The Book of Mormon is dependent on a non-fictional Christ; if Christ is fictional, so are the BoM stories of his second appearance in the New World. But Christ's mortal existence is not much questioned, right? A better analogy might be, "[like saying] Yes, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and my Lord and Savior, even though I reject the idea that he ever actually rose from the dead; that's just inspired fiction."
  2. What does mean? There's nothing in the Book of Mormon that, to me, comes across as complex. What criteria or standard are you using? That one dinky Faulkner passage I pasted is more complex than anything I've ever read in the Book of Mormon. I don't get it.
  3. Right. Compare the complexity of this: And thus did the thirty and eighth year pass away, and also the thirty and ninth, and forty and first, and the forty and second, yea, even until forty and nine years had passed away, and also the fifty and first, and the fifty and second; yea, and even until fifty and nine years had passed away. with something as simple as this: “In a strange room you must empty yourself for sleep.

  4. when you click "abominable" above, it takes you to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. pointing this out as a courtesy :)
  5. A "state of awful blindness" makes no sense. You're blind or you're not. A "state of awful wickedness" is also nonsensical; how would a state of wickedness be anything but awful? A "state of awful woundedness" is the most logical. You can have mild wounds, ugly wounds, awful wounds, etc. However, as a gentile, I'm actually flattered that there's so much interest in correctly describing our state under the teachings of that abominable church. Personally, I vote for "wickedness"
  6. Sort of strange thing to lie about, don’t you think? He reads the Book of Mormon, sees an exaggerated use of a phrase, then makes up a lie about seeing the same overuse from another book? What possible motivation do you think he had?
