If you don't know what an NPC is, the Dilbert cartoon below explains it.
NOTE: The cartoon has been slightly modified (7th panel) to explain how BOM
Staff Hires at BOM
Yesterday, we met the NPCs at BOM
They all give these NPC responses to the following questions. If you know any of them, ask, and you will see for yourself.

that teaches the prophets are wrong
NPC Answer: Mesoamerica (or Fantasyland, if they use the BYU/CES fantasy maps).
Q2: Where is the hill Cumorah?
NPC Answer: Somewhere in Southern Mexico.
Q3: Haven't the prophets consistently taught that Cumorah is in New York?
NPC Answer: You're not supposed to know that.
Q4: I repeat, haven't the prophets consistently taught that Cumorah is in New York?
NPC Answer: Yes, but they were merely expressing their opinions, and they were wrong because our scholars have said so. The prophets don't have PhDs in Mesoamerican/Mayan studies.
Q5: Do you believe the scholars instead of the prophets?
NPC Answer: Of course. Don't you?
As always, I emphasize that on a personal level I really like everyone who is affiliated with Book of Mormon
But I can't ignore the destructive impact of their ongoing repudiation of the consistent, persistent teachings of the prophets about the New York Cumorah.
