Does science make errors?

Of course it does, during research – it’s part of the vetting process, and essential. The Book of Mormon mentions the following items: Bull, Calf, Ass, Cattle, Cow, Sheep, Domestic Goat, Elephant, Horse, Silk, Bellows, Brass, Iron, Steel, Wheat, Barley, Chariots, Scimitars, and Metallurgy. Science has verified that NONE of these things existed in the Western Hemisphere from 600 B.C. to 421 A.D. Chocolate, Lima beans, Squash, Potatoes, Tomatoes, and Manioc DID exist, yet there is no mention of them. Is it possible that we will eventually unearth a buried example of a Bellows? Given its purpose, it is unlikely, but let’s just say “yes” for the moment. For the Book of Mormon to be inerrant in this matter, science would need to be wrong about the other 18 items listed above too.

That is not possible.

Your chances at winning the lottery are far better than your odds that science could be wrong about these things.
