To be clear, the story of Hagoth has nothing to do with whether the Book of Mormon is historical or not, since there is absolutely no way to judge it historically. That literally is impossible. If the book is historically accurate, so is the story of Hagoth; if the book isn't historically accurate, neither is the story of Hagoth. There simply is no way whatsoever to analyze or judge it apart from the overall issue of the book in which it is recorded. Furthermore, I personally don't see any particular "moral of the story" that makes it compelling to me.

Thus, frankly, I couldn't care less about that story. It literally is meaningless to me.

The Book of Mormon itself is pretty vague on Hagoth.
