Question: Is the place in the Arabian desert called "Lehi's cave" evidence for the Book of Mormon?

Comparison of what is known about the cave and what is said in the Book of Mormon does not make it likely that this site has anything to do with the Book of Mormon

I've heard about a place in the Arabian desert called "Lehi's cave." Does this provide evidence for the Book of Mormon?

Comparison of what is known about the cave and what is said in the Book of Mormon does not make it likely that this site has anything to do with the Book of Mormon: The limited coincidences that can be found between the site and Nephi's account do not justify the tourist myth of 'Lehi's cave.'"
