"Is there evidence for the Book of Mormon?"

Millions have asked this question because the Book of Mormon is foundational to the Mormon faith - more accurately known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  To learn more click HERE.  Many have wondered what evidence has been found in its support, as the book asserts to be a record of ancient peoples that came by ship from the Old World region of Israel to the America's where they developed into large and highly advanced civilizations with written language, walled cities, extensive roads, metal working, agriculture and a multitude of other sophisticated capabilities. 

Some students of the Book of Mormon have speculated that the record is a history of the ancient peoples of Central or South America notwithstanding the fact that their record was recovered from a stone box in a hill near Palmyra, New York, USA and Church leaders have maintained for over 100 years that this was the location of that hill called "Cumorah." (see Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation article HERE)  Others have proposed the Great Lakes region of North America to be its lands. Robust new research, based on a multi-disciplinary approach, is now providing overwhelming evidence that this history is a record of Native American peoples who lived in what is today the Heartland of the United States on the continent of North America.  This research begs the question, "Did the Book of Mormon take place in America’s Heartland?

For those of the Mormon faith, the "Heartland" of what is now the United States of America has always been a special, even sacred, location; from the Garden of Eden (OT Genesis 2:15, OT Genesis 3:23-24PoGP Moses 6:17 ) and Adam-ondi-Ahman (see D&C 107:53, D&C 116:1) ; to the restoration of the gospel (see D&C Introduction, D&C 20:1, Joseph Smith - History)  and the building of the New Jerusalem (NT Revelation 21:2, BoM Ether 13:2-6, 3 Nephi 20:22, D&C 84:1-4, D&C 45:64-67, PoGP Moses 7:62) – the Heartland of North America has been the setting for sacred events throughout human history. 

New research based in part on 36 prophecies contained within the Book of Mormon (see VIDEO GALLERY # 1-10) and historically verified writings and statements of the Church's founding Prophet, Joseph Smith (see VIDEO GALLERY 11-15 and/or read article HERE), in combination with physical evidences from DNA/genetics (download entire DNA book HERE, or watch Dr. Donald Yates of DNA Testing Systems HERE), archaeology, anthropology, metallurgy, linguistics, horticulture, climate indicators, ocean currents and voyage routes, geography, astronomy, calendaring and symbology, point to the very real probability that the people and places of the Book of Mormon were primarily in the Mississippi and Ohio River valleys of what is today the United States of America.   

Secular evidence continues to mount that the Book of Mormon may have occurred in the Heartland of North America.   This new research is offering unprecedented evidence of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. Interestingly, much of this evidence is coming from non-Mormon secular sources, which is one of the many reasons why this research is so powerful and compelling.

In Defense of the Gospel and the Heartland Model
Mar. 12, 2014

For several years researchers involved with the Heartland Model Geography for the Book of Mormon, as it is officially recognized, have endured relentless criticism from individuals and organizations that have been actively promoting Mesoamerican geography theories for many years. They have done so in a concerted effort to discourage members of the Church from reviewing and learning more about this research for themselves, knowing that the vast majority of those who objectively review the research feel that this geography model "just makes more sense."  Unfortunately, their articles are often misleading, incorrect and/or uninformed about the Heartland Book of Mormon geography model, to often resorting to personal attacks against the character, commitment to Church leaders, or intelligence of Heartland proponents. For the purpose of clarifying and addressing these articles, we offer a few responses to our critics below.

We appreciate the time and effort taken by others to help us improve our research, but personal attacks are unwarranted, contentious and unChrist-like. Our goal in addressing a few of these critics is to demonstrate that the Heartland Model has the ability to answer many questions in defense of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon as never before. This is not to say that there are now answers to every question, rather we feel that it offers cogent, straight-forward answers to many previously unanswered or unanswerable questions. We strive to avoid contention by addressing their concerns indirectly, through our educational materials rather than directly refuting their claims. 

We hope you find the articles helpful in determining for yourself the strengths of differing thoughts and ideas regarding Book of Mormon geography. No matter "where" it happened, we testify "that" it happened...that it is a genuine ancient history of real people, places and things. Enjoy the journey!

Exploring The Book of Mormon In Americas Heartland
Mar. 10, 2014

Meldrum has created the first 200+ page heirloom quality photographic journey of discovery into the exciting new "Heartland Model" geography!  Its title is Exploring The Book of Mormon In America's Heartland - A Visual Journey of Discovery.

Over 300 stunningly beautiful and informational photographs combine with research, quotes, stories, artifacts, maps and scripture to make this the ultimate book on Book of Mormon evidences based on the Heartland Model. Enjoy some of the book pages by clicking on the PHOTO GALLERY page HERE.


Exploring the BoM in America's Heartland pages

From the Garden of Eden and Adam-ondi-Ahman to the restoration of the Gospel and the New Jerusalem —the “Heartland” of America is the setting of sacred and significant events throughout human history. This photographic book introduces the growing body of evidence that offers the very real probability of a North American setting for The Book of Mormon.

 

Ancient prophets wrote of a new nation that would occupy their lands in the latter days.  They prophesied to that nation, imploring the latter day citizens of that nation not to make the same mistakes that resulted in the destruction of their civilization.  To ensure that we could not mistake or misconstrue which nation it was that they were warning, the provided 36 scriptural prophecies and promises regarding that nation.  Those prophecies make it absolutely clear and unmistakeable that they were attempting to warn the nation they knew in vision would be the base for the Lord's latter-day Church.  They saw our day in vision and they knew that should this nation fail, it would severely impact the ability of the Church to carry out its mission of bring the gospel to the world.  The only nation that qualifies in every one of the 36 prophecies to be that latter day nation is the United States of America.  The land now occupied by this nation has always been the location of significant events throughout human history.  It is ancient as well as the latter-day “Promised Land.”  The Prophet Joseph Smith was completely consistent with these prophecies as indicated by his written and signed statements as well as his actions indicating his views on Book of Mormon geography.

 

Newly emerging scientific information strengthens the assertion that large agrarian societies once flourished in North America at precisely the times of the Jaredite and Nephite cultures. This research, conducted primarily by non-LDS scientists, is revealing a remarkable panorama of culture, achievement and destruction among these ancient peoples. 

 

The research here compiled spans the scope of archaeology, anthropology, architecture, fortifications, trade, religion, metallurgy, DNA, horticulture, transportation–by sea and by land, geographic topologies, building materials, astronomical alignments, mythology and much more."

 

This visually compelling new book has a suggested retail of $39.95. Compare with other books of similar quality at $45-$60.  To purchase, go to the BOOKSTORE or visit Deseret Book and Seagull Bookstores everywhere, or Costco stores in Utah, Idaho, and Arizona. Also available on Amazon.com and other retail book outlets online. 

Nephite Explorer Television Series on KJZZ-TV
Jul. 13, 2013

National Geographic investigative journalist Ryan Fisher has produced an incredible made-for-television series called Nephite Explorer, by following clues from scriptural prophecy to help unlock mysteries from the Bible, Book of Mormon and American History.  He has made some startling discoveries…some that may rewrite American history.  The 14 episode series begins in Jerusalem and the exodus of Lehi’s family at 600 BC.  He travels to several locations in Israel which may have been along Lehi’s route south past the Dead Sea to the Red Sea.  He uncovers ancient prophecies regarding promised lands with their associated covenants which connect the old world and the new.  As he progresses into the covenants and promises of the Lord on these promised lands he finds incredible evidence that the Founding Fathers and other leaders of the United States believed and understood that they were establishing a latter-day promised land.

Click the Nephite Logo below to take you to the Video Gallery and scroll down to clip #106. 

Nephite Explorer Overview

Ryan travels to Washington D.C., Philadelphia, New York and historic sites of early America to talk with the experts regarding these promises and covenants.  What he finds is truly remarkable…and largely ignored by modern history books.  He then launches into a full scale investigation into the ancient inhabitants of this country, those that lived here during Book of Mormon time frames.  He finds evidences of an incredibly sophisticated civilization that closely matches the Nephites described in the Book of Mormon and introduces his audience to them through their artifacts, artwork, culture and archaeology.  The parallels he finds are nothing short of astonishing as Ryan utilized advances in science, technology, archaeology and history to further our understanding of the true history of the “most correct book on earth.”  Don’t miss a single episode of this thought provoking series which includes many interviews with noted scholars and experts.

The Lost Civilizations of North America DVD
Aug. 18, 2010

 Glenn Beck & Lost Civillizations

For over three months we have anxiously awaited the re-release of this paradigm shattering documentary film.  With over a dozen mainstream archaeologists, anthropologists, museum directors, geneticists, historians, authors and Native Americans, The Lost Civilizations of North America is an incredibly compelling new film that finally answers the question of why most Americans (and most Mormons) have never heard about the tremendous, highly advanced civilizations that once existed anciently in the 'Heartland' of the North American continent and why information about their origins have been systematically erased from American history.

 

Take a moment to watch the video trailer and clips from this fundamentally important film to all those interested in learning about all the exciting new evidences for the Book of Mormon as a literal historical record of real people and places. Watch Wednesday's broadcast of Glenn Beck on FOX NEWS referencing this documentary film by clicking HERE.

 

This hour long film will forever change your view about the strength of the claims of the Book of Mormon relative to where it may have taken place.  Nowhere has this level of evidence been provided by mainstream, non-Mormon scholars from so many diverse fields of expertise as you will find within this extraordinarily well done film.  This is truly the 'must see' film of 2011 for every Book of Mormon believer and skeptic alike!  It has been said that Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon Church, believed that someday the 'Gentiles' would prove out the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon...could it be that today is that day?  Watch this film and see what you think!

Quote by Austin Farrar
The relationship between rational argument (evidence) and belief.

"Though argument does not create conviction, lack of it destroys belief.

What seems to be proved may not be embraced: but what no one shows the ability to defend is quickly abandoned.

Rational argument does not create belief, but it maintains a climate in which belief may flourish."
