There's No Such Thing as "Proof"

There is no current way to 'prove' the Book of Mormon is true, or Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. Why? Because it is a matter of faith. The Book of Mormon prophet, Moroni, wrote: "Lord, the Gentiles will mock at these things because of our weakness in writing; for Lord thou hast made us mighty in word by faith, but thou hast not made us mighty in writing; for thou hast made all this people that they could speak much, because of the Holy Ghost which thou hast given them."

The Lord responded to Moroni in this manner: "Fools mock, but they shall mourn; and my grace is sufficient for the meek, that they shall take no advantage of your weakness; and if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them."

Moroni was comforted and said: "O Lord, thy righteousness will be done, for I know that thou workest unto the children of men according to their faith." (Book of Mormon, Ether 12:23-29).

Professor Norman Golb of the Oriental Institute at University of Chicago puts it this way (in addressing uncertainties about the Dead Sea Scrolls and the people who lived at Qumran): "While writing my recent book (Who Wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls? ; Scribner, 1995) I learned anew, with every twist and turn of the investigation underlying it, how wrong it would be for me, or any other scholar involved in the subject, to claim that we now "know the truth" about the scrolls and their surrounding history. At the most, on the basis of the analysis of those scrolls discovered and analyzed to date, scholarship has only created certain hypotheses concerning them; and as logicians and historians of science have eloquently shown, hypotheses can never be proved with finality---they can, with finality, only be disproved."

Although there are no 'proofs', there are evidences that can enhance faith. This page, as it grows has the goal of showing many little evidences, that when piled together, make for a mountain of 'proof.' There are so many, that it can no longer be explained away as coincidence.
