“I don’t really know how my friends that are Mormon archaeologists cope with this non-evidence, the fact that the evidence really hasn’t shown up — how they make the jump from the data to faith or from faith back to the data, because the data and the faith are two different worlds. There’s simply no way to bring them together.”
—Michael Coe, Professor of Anthropology emeritus, Yale University

When describing how the accounts of the different anti-Christs in the Book of Mormon all have similar stories, Roberts writes: “So nearly alike that one mind is the author of them, and that a young and undeveloped, but piously inclined mind. The evidence I sorrowfully submit, points to Joseph Smith as their creator.”
—B.H. Roberts, “Studies of the Book of Mormon”
