A parody of the debate thus far:
J: Show me evidence for the Book of Mormon!
H: I think we first need to discuss questions of presuppositions, methodology and epistemology in order to understand what would constitute evidence and how it can be interpreted properly.
J: No! Show me evidence for the Book of Mormon! Now!
H: Well, there’s lots of evidence and analysis presented in books and articles by LDS scholars. Like Sorenson’s Mormon’s Codex. Will you read them?
J: No! All Mormon “scholars” are cranks and hacks! I refuse to read anything they have to say! Show me evidence for the Book of Mormon! Now!
H: Well, I’m a Mormon scholars; if you won’t read books or articles from Mormon scholars why should I think you’d accept what I have to say?
H: Well, I pointed to evidence in Sorenson’s Mormon’s Codex.
J: That book is by a Mormon. I want evidence, not pseudo-scientific crap!
H: Alright, you asked for examples of Nephite pottery; Before we can deal with that issue, we need to try to understand what pottery can and can’t tell us about the past.
J: No! You’ve shown me no evidence! I’ve won!
