    I was likewise struck by the constant appeal to feelings rather than
    judgement when they came by my door. Ironically, the appeal to
    feelings actually worked, as their arguments gave me a terrible
    feeling. Furthermore, skimming the Book of Mormon I found not only
    bad attempts at imitating KJV language and flagrant heresy but also
    scientific error. Upon landing in the New World, they purportedly
    found a bunch of useful Old World animals.
