Professor Sod had an interview for three and one-half hours with President McKay here at the Church Offices.  At the end of this interview President McKay asked him, "What happened to the people who wrote the scrolls?"  Professor Sod was going to defer to the expert but he was the expert.  He said, "President McKay, they joined the Church."  And President McKay said, "I like that."

A Great quote by Dr. Erickson "When research starts on any given name in the Book of Mormon there is no telling where it will lead and just how much is imbedded in the names. Some are absolutely unique in the Book of Mormon, and to find them on clay tablets in Mesopotamia just blows the mind, but does wonders for the spirit! There is no way that these names and all the others could have been conjured up in less than thethree months the Book of Mormon was composed and have the most intimate details substantiated by discoveries of little clay tablets and other inscriptions throughout Turkey, Mesopotamia, Palestine, Egypt and other Middle and Near Eastern countries."
