No writings have ever been discovered on
metal Plates. That proves Joseph ‛s story
about the Gold Plates is false !
 
  Mr. Prosecutor, I had no idea there were
engraved metal Plates until I saw them
for myself in 1824. During my lifetime, I
never knew of any other metal Plates that had been discovered.
 
  Your Honor, the Defense would like to present this map, which shows where ancient metal Plates have been discovered around the world since Joseph Smith ‛s time. They date from 2,000 B.C. to 800 A.D. Many additional metal and clay Plates have been uncovered in the Americas, Europe, the Far East, and Korea ( many of which were preserved in stone boxes ).1 A noteworthy fact is that the earliest of these Plates wasn ‛t discovered until 1854, ten years after Joseph Smith ‛s death.  
     
  Guess I ‘ll have
to try another
approach.
