Your approach to this argument is completely in the wrong direction.
Hold on. I think you're jumping the gun. All I said was, "I'm guessing that you are referring to Isaiah. Is that correct? Do you have any idea why Nephi quoted Isaiah?" I made one statement and asked two simple questions, and from this brief response, you have nailed my "approach to this argument"?
Its not up to me to discredit or disprove the book of mormon. Its up to you to convince yourself and others of the accuracies of this manuscript.
I'm already convinced of the truth of the Book of Mormon. As far as I'm concerned, everybody else's perspective on it is irrelevant.
I would like to comment on one statement you made, though...
In fact, biblical scholars have pinpointed a book in the OT that is very similar to the phrases used in the book of mormon.
Are you seriously telling me that it took Biblical scholars
to pinpoint the "book in the OT that is very similar to the phrases used in the Book of Mormon"?
I'm sorry, Saint George, but we're not talking rocket science here.
