Book Of Mormon Archaeology in General Discussions Posted March 17, 2015 After careful prayer and study, I have come to the conclusion that we will never know the locations of the Book of Mormon. Oh, there will be discoveries like on the Arabian Peninsula...where intelligent minds will disagree of its significance, but we will never uncover the exact location. And that is exactly how it is supposed to be. We should NEVER find it. I know this sounds strange to anyone who knows me and my arguments in the past. But, as I studied and prayed, I came upon this thought: We can walk the streets of Jerusalem, but doing so does not PROVE the Bible. However, if we EVER uncovered an ancient sign that said, "Welcome to the Town of Zerehemla" that fact, in and of itself, would PROVE...definitively, the Book of Mormon. And then, there would be perfect knowledge and no need for faith. And without Faith, there is no hope. No refining. No progression. So, despite my vociferous arguments as a Non-Mormon, I admit my error as an LDS re-investigator. If it served God's purpose for us to know...we would. However, it better serves His purpose that we walk by faith, not by perfect knowledge.My own searchng and prayer has led me to believe their is sufficient evidence of the BoM in the America's. That said, I do not need to prove where exactly the lands were or were not to validate my testimony in the book or in the church or in Joseph Smith. I have read through the BoM many times and each time I gain new insights and hidden treasures of knowledge that validate one thing and one thing only- that the Nephites, Lamanites, and Jaredites were real ancient people and that they did in fact communicate with God and his son Jesus Christ.
