The Book of Mormon-Plagiarism

June 7, 2009 at 8:43 pm (Mormonism)

The topic of plagiarism in the Book of Mormon is a common defense against the divinity of Joseph Smith. There’s the Spalding–Rigdon theory that says the Book of Mormon was plagiarized from Manuscript Story. After some digging, I came upon the Skeptic’s Annotated Bible site which highlights all the suspected plagiarized verses that were plagiarized from the Bible itself (King James Version). Mormon apologetics have their own theory on the subject (here too). I do have to say that this is not something the Mormons like to discuss about.
