DNA Knocks Down
The Book of Mormon.
Mormons (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints), headquartered in Salt Lake City believe with all their hearts that the Book of Mormon is an accurate history of the American continent.
They absolutely believe that their prophet, Joseph Smith, received this history on gold plates from the Angel Moroni and was given Gods help to translate the plates into the Book of Mormon.
They absolutely believe and teach that the Native American Indians are decendents from Israelites who travelled to the New World on a ship. They absolutely believe the Native American Indians are from Hebrew ancestors.
The Book of Mormon contains the story of an Israelite, Lehi, who arrived on the American Continent, travelling here from Israel. He was reportedly a Hebrew Prophet out of the tribe of Manasseh. Mormons believe he became the ancestor of the Nephite and Lamanite races. (A complete Concordance of the Book of Mormon p. 414).
The Book of Mormon describes these two brothers as follows. First Nephi: And now, behold, it came to pass that the people of Nephi did wax strong, and did multiply exceedingly fast, and became an exceedingly fair and delightsome people. (2 Nehpi 5:21 Book of Mormon) Allegedly, the Nephites were fair-skinned people.
The Lamanites did not do as well, but fell under the curse of God. ...God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them...and because of their cursing which was upon them they did become an idle people, full of mischief and subtlety... (2 Nehpi 5:21-24. Book of Mormon)
Did we mention how blatantly racist the Book of Mormon is? People of mixed blood were denied entry to the Mormon Temple until recent times. It is only in the last few decades that people of color can participate fully. However, changing the rules does not change the Book of Mormon! If it were really of God it would not make these statements to begin with, for the Bible teaches ...God is not one to show partiality, but in every nation the man who fears Him and does what is right, is welcome to Him. (Acts 10:34,35).
According to 3 Nephi, chapter 11 in the Book of Mormon, the resurrected Christ appeared in the Americas. The footnote sets this date at A.D. 34. A long period of peace allegedly occurred after this appearance.
However, dissention arose, which resulted in a bloody war between the Lamanites and the Nephites. The dark-skinned Lamanites killed every single light-skinned Nephite, (some 230,000) except for one, Moroni.
He reportedly wrote down the history of events in the Book of Mormon on gold plates and hid the plates. Essentially, then, the Book of Mormon was a record written for the surviving Lamanites, the ancestors of the American Indians.
This whole scenerio supposedly took place on the Hill Cummorah in New York State. We visited the Mormon Visitors Center there and asked them to produce one item from this great war. One would think there would be a button, a coin, a remnant of a weapon...anything!! Nope. Nothing. Just artists concepts in pictures.
The gold plates were never seen by anyone but Joseph, and when pushed, he claimed they were conveniently stolen! Candidly stated, there is not one piece of physical evidence for the plates or for this great war. Still, we were assured at the Mormon Visitors Center that the Book of Mormon was a literal and factual history of events in that area! Wow! That kind of unsubstantiated thinking takes a lot of faith!
Still, the Mormon Church has many learned and professional people in its ranks. Among them are several molecular anthropoligists, biologists, and professors.
These are not ignorant persons easily duped, but well-educated professionals and scholars.
The molecular biologists work with DNA. They know that DNA can prove conclusively the origins of persons. There are chromosone markers that remain intact throughout hundreds of generations, from both the Fathers and the Mothers genes. This DNA evidence is conclusive.
We have all heard of recent court cases where prisoners, in jail for years, were released when DNA testing became prevalent in the late 1980s. All were cleared by DNA evidence, which proved conclusively that they were not the ones committing the crime. Conversely, DNA closes the case on the guilty ones. They can have all the alibis they want, but if they left DNA at the crime scene, even in minute, microscopic amounts, they are convicted. It is that accurate and conclusive.
Several Mormon molecular biologists, anxious to prove the authenticity of the Book of Mormon, were sure that the DNA taken from North American Indians would prove they had decended from the Israelites, as they all believed.
Big shock! After more than a decade of careful and extensive testing, all scholars, Mormons and others knew the incontestable truth--Native American Indians decended from Northeast Asia, primarily from Siberia and Mongolia. This confirmed a long-held theory that there was a land bridge between Asia and Alaska, over which these tribes once crossed. and migrated South.
Other evidence confirmed the DNA findings. There are still facial and bodily similarities between the Northeastern Asians and the Native American Indians. They share similarities in language, customs, and artifacts.
DNA tests done on the most ancient skeletons in North America confirm these findings. Interestingly, after 1492 when Columbus came, there are traces of European and African DNA in the modern American Native Indians, both in South America and North America. This constitues a tiny 0.6% of all tested, To this day 99.4% of all the DNA present in the modern Native Indians is still a match to the Asian races.
Now to the flip side. Does any DNA from American Native Indians match any DNA from the Hebrews, or modern Israelites? The answer is NO, NONE. Clearly the Hebrews or Israelites are NOT the decendents of the North American Indians. The book of Mormon is false in its entirety. The foundation is gone.
Since the history in the Book of Mormon has been proven false, then somebody is lying! That liar is clearly Joseph Smith, who fabricated the whole story. Did an angel (Moroni) really appear to him? If he did, we can know it must have been an angel of light from Satan, which the Bible warns us about. The story this angel gave, we now know, is false!
So, the house of cards upon which Mormonism is based has come tumbling down! That means Jesus never appeared in the Americas, and the Mormon people have been duped and deceived for over a century!
The new video we are offering, called DNA vs. The Book of Mormon is the finest witnessing tool you can have for the Mormons. It features Mormons throughout, scholars, molecular anthropoligists, biologists, genetic experts, many of whom share their former deep faith in Mormonism, now gone due to DNA evidence which cannot be denied.
There is a telling interview with the Mormon President Gordon B. Hinckley, who is visibly on the defensive and in denial. However, the facts dont lie!
Be sure and get a copy of this documentary video to keep at home for the next visit of the Mormon missionaries, and put one in your Church library. This truly could bring about the demise of the Mormon Church! Help us get the word out! Pray for the Mormons to come free.
A video every Mormon should see. $20.00 US plus $2.50 post $ 30.00 Can plus $3.50 post.
