Is There Really No Archaeological Evidence for the Book of Mormon?

I have been told by critics of the Book of Mormon that there is no archaeological evidence for the Book of Mormon.

The Book of Mormon says that a group of people came to the Americas at the time of the Tower of Babel, from Mesopotamia.

Proto-Sumerian heiroglyphics have been found in Bolivia and translated. They are found on what has been called, The
Pokotia Monolith
(also known as the Monolith of Pokotia or Pokotia Monument)

    There is plenty of archeological evidence of all kinds of things that has not been uncovered yet. That something has or has not been revealed is not conclusive of anything.

    Sumerian writing was done on clay tablets with carver styli. and looked like patterns of elongated triangles.
    This image is proto-mayan.

    You do understand what "Proto-" means, don't you?
  • Cat Dave Sa... 2012/09/30 19:05:49
    Yes. the form that came before. But proto forms still resemble the developed writing style. Like proto-chinese which still uses distinct characters but in pairs instead of conjoined, and still reads from top to bottom. I'm not uneducated.

    So Hieroglyphics and Hieratic script look alike to you?

    You haven't given me an example of Proto-Sumerian writing, so I was giving you a comparative example you should be familiar with.

    No. you didn't. You just claimed it would look like Sumerian writing.
  • Cat Dave Sa... 2012/10/01 01:40:14
    It doesn't look anything like that tablet in the photo.
    Now go away.
    You want to believe, I can see that.
    No LDS people ever gave me reason to be angry, so I'm trying to play nice. Don't start something here.

    In the "World Almanac and Book of Facts 2010" it says, "The Sumerians used clay tablets with pictographs to keep records after 4000 bce. A cuneiform (wedge-shaped) script evolved by 3000 bce as a full syllabic alphabet."

    Which means that Proto-Sumerian and Cuneiform look different even though they were used by the same civilization, just as Egyptians used hieroglyphics and heiratic script.

    Answer something Jesus is in the Elohim, as well as God the Father,and God the Holy Spirit. satan(Jesus's"brother.") Isn't mentioned. You went to a baptist church. You weren't taught very well or you didn't listen. Satan filled your heart with half truths,and you can't tell what is truth? You think you are spiritually discerned? Don't spread your theology. You condemn people's soul to Hell. if you haven't recieved The Gift of Salvation? You will join them. Because you have not believed in The only Begotten Son of God. Not telling people about the grace of The Lord Jesus, that He died to forgive us of our sins, we should ask Him to come live in our hearts to be our Lord, and Savior. To make us children of God. Will not bode well if you miss and they miss Heaven too. All the spiritual training I mean. It won't amount to anything if you've never trusted yourself?

    I was taught very well in the Baptist church. Unfortunately, I was taught some things that were not true, some not even in the Bible - though the claim is that they only believe the Bible.

    Satan is mentioned in Job, which is likely our oldest scripture, since he lived about the time of Abraham.

    I condemn no one to hell, and you do not understand what hell is, in most cases, in the Bible. Hell is Sheol or Hades, most of the time, and that is where the spirits of all the dead go when their body dies. Gehenna is the place where the wicked go. Paradise, or Abraham's bosom is where the righteous go. In hell, we await the resurrection of our physical bodies.

    If you will study and understand the use of the word "saved" in the Bible, it is almost always used in the future tense or the continuous sense of in the process of becoming saved. I have that assurance that Christ is able and will save me.

    How can you tell me that I have not believed in Jesus Christ, the only Begotten Son of God? I know that I have and that He lives and is my Lord and Savior.

    You have not been taught very well what I believe.

    You are following a religion that doesn't acknowledge Jesus is the only way. They don't believe Him to be The only Begotten Son of God. They believe Jesus and satan are brothers.

    The Book of Mormon is subtitled, "Another Testament of Jesus Christ". Of course we teach that Jesus is the only way.

    (Book of Mormon | Mosiah 3:17)

    "And moreover, I say unto you, that there shall be no other name given nor any other way nor means whereby salvation can come unto the children of men, only in and through the name of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent."

    (Book of Mormon | Alma 38:9)

    "And now, my son, I have told you this that ye may learn wisdom, that ye may learn of me that there is no other way or means whereby man can be saved, only in and through Christ. Behold, he is the life and the light of the world. Behold, he is the word of truth and righteousness."

    (Book of Mormon | Jacob 4:11)

    Wherefore, beloved brethren, be reconciled unto him through the atonement of Christ, his Only Begotten Son, and ye may obtain a resurrection, according to the power of the resurrection which is in Christ, and be presented as the first-fruits of Christ unto God, having faith, and obtained a good hope of glory in him before he manifesteth himself in the flesh."

    By only-begotten, it is meant that Christ is the only one begotten of God in the flesh. While we are all God's spirit children, only He was begotten in the flesh by God the Father.

    Why don't we remember that we were in Heaven? Jesus does. Or were we on the earth? Why did Jesus have to die if we are all God's children anyway? The people who died before Jesus came to earth to die on the cross what happened to them? Your book conflicts with the Bible. John1:1-3

    I was born a spirit child long before I came here to gain a physical body. I did not lose my place in God's family. He loves all His children obedient or not - but there are consequences for disobedience.

    Like I said before Jesus doesn't have amnesia. But we do. He knows who He was from the begining. We have don't any recollection. Funny.

    But He had to progress as any mortal would. He learned His identity from His mother and Father. This is also how we learn our identities.

    He was God from the begining. We are not. You can't equate Him to us or vice versa. How dare you say you are God. That's the only way to be like Him.

    We are God's children. Children, if they survive and follow what their parents teach them, grow up to by like their parent.

    John 10:34-38:
    Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, "I said, Ye are gods?" (Psalm 82:6) If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

    If Christ had the Father in Him and we have Christ in us, then are we not the same, except for this mortal body?

    We start out by being God's creation. Then when we ask Christ to live in our hearts, We become God's children. Heirs and joint heirs through the finished work of Christ on the cross. Get a real Bible. listen ttb.org, lwf.org. Get some foundation before you spout. You know just enough to make you dangerous to Christ and His teaching. Put the cult book down, it's warping you and everyone that sees your posts.

    Fact you always be your parents son. Even if you are disowned by them, you have their DNA. Since we weren't born to parents as "God's spirit children." Where does the Bible say we are God's Spirit child?

    Genesis 2:7, "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath (spirit) of life; and man became a living soul."

    Hebrews 12:9, "Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?"

    Acts 17:28-29, "For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also His offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device."

    Jesus did not sin. Jesus was the Father's firstborn. The Firstborn inherits a double portion (look it up).

    When Lucifer rebelled in heaven, before we came here to gain physical bodies. For those of us with physical bodies, it was in the Garden of Eden.
