Nibley on How Time Vindicates the Book of Mormon

"Even if. every parallel [in the Book of Mormon] were the purest coincidence, we would still have to explain how the Prophet contrived to pack such a dense succession of happy accidents into the scriptures he gave us. Where the world has a perfect right to expect a great potpourri of the most outrageous nonsense, and in anticipation has indeed rushed to judgment with all manner of premature accusations, we discover whenever ancient texts turn up to offer the necessary checks and controls, that the man was astonishingly on target in his depiction of general situations, in the almost casual mention of peculiar oddities, in the strange proper names, and countless other unaccountable details.... As the evidence accumulates, it is not the Prophet but his critics who find themselves with a lot of explaining to do."
—The Prophetic Book of Mormon (1989), 325-26, quoted in Echoes and Evidences, of the Book of Mormon
