Abstract

This article argues that, although there is little definite evidence or data with which to clearly identify Book of Mormon geographical sites, continued earnest, honest, and scholarly studies should not be discouraged. “All such studies are legitimate,” but dogmatic conclusions made without actual verifiable data “must at the best be held as intelligent conjectures.”
