The Book of Mormon (Part 8)

Finally!!! The Book of Mormon has finally said something that makes sense!

The Anti-Christ is an atheist, and everything he says makes total sense. And why is it that when he demands proof of god, god provides it to him, but he won't provide it to me? Lucky, Corahor.

This leads me to wonder what was going on in America when this was written? Robert Ingersoll, perhaps? That will require checking later.

So, now tell me... What do I have to do to get god to prove himself to me?

This chapter is also terribly anti-science. I mean really, the order of the universe proves there is a god? How many times does science have to disprove this (all the mechanisms to achieve order from chaos) before this finally sinks in?

Oh, right... Dumb question.

EDIT: No, it wasn't Robert Ingersoll, the dates don't match up. Smith died in 1844 and Ingersoll wasn't born until 1833. But, it seems there was a freethinker movement in Germany since around 1815, which came to the US in 1848, so perhaps he was reacting to that.
