The "dark triad" of three personality traits: Sometimes called "dark personality.
There are literally hundreds of thousands of witnesses to these amazing phenomena. Should they be believed as well? The famous Lochness Monster photo taken in by a surgeon was believed to be genuine by many people due to the credibility of the witness.
There are many witnesses that claimed to have seen the Loch Ness Monster.
The famous Bigfoot video referred to as the Patterson video was believed by many people to be genuine as well. One of the main reasons was the credibility of one of the witnesses. He seemed very sincere in his statements and had a very good upstanding reputation as an honest man.
He now thinks he was carefully led down a ravine where someone had been waiting in an ape suit to purposely trick him. The best witness of course is someone that really believes he saw the event.
The Book of Mormon witnesses may have been deceived as well and were not lying as far as they were concerned. Many fantastic stories that have had numerous witnesses have been proved to be hoaxes yet many people still hold steadfast to their unbelievable claims. It just proves that there are many, many people that have said, and will say, they are witnesses to very improbable events.
We wonder how many of us would actually believe the Book of Mormon witnesses if they lived today instead of the 19th century. Would you honestly believe a group of people that all told the story of some fantastic event if they lived when you did? Comparing the BOM and Spalding witnesses.
Not all witnesses are the same.
We can compare the witnesses for the Book of Mormon to the witnesses of Manuscript Found. The statement of the 3 witnesses for the Book of Mormon was a single statement signed by all three men. This has the appearance of fraud.

One way to crosscheck memory accuracy is to seek corroborating evidence regarding the witnesses themselves — their reputations, attention to detail, memory skills, biases, and trustworthiness. Many were leading citizens of the community.
Artemus Cunningham was owed money by Spalding. Yet another, Aaron Wright, was a Justice of the Peace who investigated the mounds of Conneaut and described finding bones in the mounds that disintegrated when he dug them up.
These were credible people, with no known conflicts of interest. These people had no connection to Mormonism either before or after their statements were published.
Hurlbut went to Conneaut to collect statements because of previous allegations. Nehemiah King, a respected citizen of Conneaut, said they were reading from the book of his deceased friend Solomon.
Later, Hurlbut traveled hundreds of miles searching for the Spalding manuscript. This indicates that he thought the Spalding manuscript was authentic. Statements opposing the Conneaut witness statements were made at least a decade after the Conneaut witnesses gave their statements.
This is important because the Conneaut witness statements were not attacked at the time their evidence was published. These people lived only 40 miles from Kirtland. Eber Howe traveled to Conneaut to interview the witnesses and confirm the facts before he printed their statements.
