It doesn’t take long for someone researching Mormonism online to come across websites run by Christians making all sorts of claims to discredit the Book of Mormon. A popular claim is that the Book of Mormon is not true because it mentions such animals as horses and elephants, which is unsupported by concrete archaeological evidence.
I find it odd that Christians would make such claim. Consider Isa. 34:7
>the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.
So if these Christians can (presumably) support the biblical idea of unicorns ?¢‚Ç¨‚Äù despite the lack of archaeological evidence of their existence ?¢‚Ç¨‚Äù how can they reject a similar claim of actual (if not anachronistic) animals by the Book of Mormon?
