One of the standard chestnuts used by critics is that the Book of Mormon cannot be true because it talks of coins in Alma 11, and everyone knows that there have never been any coins discovered from the civilizations purportedly described in the book.
As part of our stated mission to defend the Church, its doctrines, leaders and practices, we at FAIR recognize the power of the “bloggernacle” and it’s utility in discussing difficult and controversial topics. For that reason, FAIR has chosen to use this medium as a way of discussing topics relevant to Mormon Apologetics.
Some of you might inquire, “What exactly is apologetics and what do you feel you need to apologize for”? The answer to this last question is “Nothing.”
“What” you ask? “But you are apologists! It is in your name, the Foundation for Apologetic Information and Research!”
