  7. 7. LETTERS & FEEDBACK The followers of Mormonism claim that the book of Mormon was written on golden plates be- tween 600 BC and 400 AD. They claim that Joseph Smith translated the golden plates into Eng- lish with the help of an angel in 1830 AD. However, this claim cannot possibly be true because entire chapters of the Book of Mormon were copied word for word out of the King James Bible. The King James Bible did not exist until 1611 AD, 1200 years after the golden plates were sup- posedly completed in 400 AD. Yet the King James Bible was published over 200 years before Joseph Smith supposedly translated the Book of Mormon. There is only one explanation. John Smith wrote the Book of Mormon and copied whole chapters from the King James Bible. Smith also quoted from the works of William Shakespeare, who died in 1616 AD. Q: Was Satan ever an angel?
