While Mormons base their belief in the Book of Mormon on direct communication with God regarding the matter, it’s still fun to see archaeological evidence that supports the Book of Mormon, and a lack of such evidence is commonly used by anti-Mormons as proof that the Book of Mormon is false, and that Mormons are sneaky monkeys who shouldn’t be hired for your next archaeological expedition.
Here are a few links to various webpages containing information regarding archeology and the Book of Mormon:
Jeff Lindsay’s Book of Mormon evidences page.
FAIR’s extensive list of links on Book of Mormon archeology.
Even a light perusal of the above links will make any reasonable person wonder how somebody could make the claim “It can be stated definitely that there is no connection between the archeology of the New World and the subject matter of the Book of Mormon.” Although that quote was from someone in 1952 (when Meso-American archeology was in its infancy), so I guess you can excuse them. What is inexcusable is that somebody would quote somebody from that era as evidence of the alleged non-existence of archaeological evidence in our day, almost 60 years later.
