#4 Smith Running with 100 pounds of Golden PlatesMyth Summary: Joseph Smith received revelation through his seer stone that someone was going to steal the Golden Plates. He took them from this hiding place and carried them three miles through the forest while fighting off men hiding there.
Why it is wrong: This is another unsubstantiated story based only on the testimony of Joseph Smith. Gold plates would weigh somewhere between 50 and 200 pounds. Joseph walked with a limp. Running three miles like that would be impossible. It is also strange that in the path through the woods that Joseph chose, he would happen upon three men hiding there in the unlikely chance that he would run by.
