While not accepting the supernatural, Symes argues that the Book of Mormon is the best attested, or has the greatest evidences attached to it, of all Bibles (sacred books) in the world. He refers to Joseph Smith’s account of the first vision and of the gold plates, as well as the testimonies of the Three and Eight Witnesses.
