Stoddard, Meridian Magazine October 6, Although the LDS church has painted a picture of Joseph Smith as an uneducated farm boy, he was home schooled quite extensively in "reading, writing, and the ground rules of arithmetic," as his mother put it. According to Joseph's mother, even from an early age, it is apparent that Joseph was not a typical boy, but possessed some qualities and mannerisms that seemed beyond his years. Some Mormons know about Joseph's terrible operation on his leg at age seven.

What if the witnesses' story happened now instead of years ago? We wonder how many of us would actually believe the Book of Mormon witnesses if they lived today instead of the 19th century. Would you honestly believe a group of people that all told the story of some fantastic event if they lived when you did?
Frankly it's easy to believe strange things as long as they happened a long time ago - the further back, the stranger e. But that doesn't mean it actually happened just because it was years ago and not today.
