Camels In America - Evidence for Book of Mormon




 Camels In America-Evidence for Book of Mormon

News Week Headline Story Titled 

"What Lies Beneath" 
Supports Book of Mormon Claims

In this undated photo made available by the Florida Museum of Natural History, shows the lower jaw of Aguascalietia panamaensis, a new species of ancient camel described by University of Florida researchers online in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology. The fossil represents one of the oldest mammals from Panama. Scientists at the Florida Museum of Natural History on the University of Florida campus in Gainesville, Fla., are working with the Panama Canal Authority and researchers from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute on a National Science Foundation-funded project to recover fossils, including that of the camel, ancient marlins, turtles and horses, during construction to widen and improve the canal.

It is with glee I announce Scientific support for Book of Mormon Camels!

But when the Book of Mormon mentioned Camels in the America's, 19th, 20th and 21st century White theologians scoffed! Even today!  They feel sure now Joseph Smith was crazy for saying such things. But science proves Smith said right! 

As of April 25, 2014, News Week published a story supporting Book of Mormon claims of Camels in the Americas. Interesting to note, the Smithsonian Institute, working in Panama, has discovered camel bones in the Panama Canal. The Chinese have been widening the canal, making it ready for the ever larger super ships and container vessels to pass through to it's respective destination oceans. 

What makes this story funny and sad, is the white people of America, "Gentiles", to whom in part the Book of Mormon was given, have scoffed and laughed it to scorn. It's taken the ancient Asian connection, as mentioned by the Book of Ether in the Book of Mormon to once again bring life to the Book of Mormon story. The Chinese Government, in renovating the Panama Canal, have without intent, unveiled Book of Mormon evidences as mentioned by the Book of Mormon.

Native American DNA

Significant DNA evidences support Book of Mormon claims of a Middle Eastern people immigrating to ancient Meso America

 

The above anti Book of Mormon propaganda DVD created by Living Hope Ministries ( of Utah) in a nutshell purports that there is no
archaeological truth to the Book of Mormon. Having watched it, I laughed!

It only served to strengthen my faith, as they gave me nothing by which to disbelieve the Book of Mormon. Indeed, the DVD and it's creators only confirmed to me the truth of the Book of Mormon. But then, I've read my Books of Mormon. (yes I've several of them) I am an avid Book of Mormon student.


Temple of the Cross 


Does Native American DNA testing support the Book of Mormon? Surprisingly the answer is yes! But let's be practical about DNA... What does 100 generations of intermarriage, between Hebrews and other Native American DNA look like? And is there science to back the idea? For another matter, what did original full blood Hebrew DNA look like 2,400 years ago, when God commanded Israelites to flee Jerusalem shortly before it's destruction.

And are there modern evidence to back the idea that, "some" Native Americans are of Israelite origins?   



NEW YORK TIMES MAYAN SARCOPHAGUS LID

NEW YORK TIMES MAYAN SARCOPHOGUS LID

In 1952 Ruz Lhuillier was excavating the staircase of the Pyramid Temple when he found a sealed passageway that led to the burial crypt and sarcophagus of King Pakul. This was the first burial crypt found in Central America, let alone in a pyramid, and fueled a debate that the Incas were in some way connected to Egypt. The lid of the sarcophagus is the depiction of King Pakul.




The answers is yes, and yes again! But we need to do our homework, we each must come to our own conclusions. I'm reporting evidences of what critics and detractors say "does not exist". 

The link pertaining Anomalous Mitochondrial DNA Lineages in the Cherokee

A fantastic research read,DNA Consultants of Phoenix Arizona clinical findings soon makes evident many Native American ancestors, and even our white Caucasian ancestors from Europe, originally came from a well known area of the world called the Middle East. 

However do not be deceived!

Other words exist to describe Middle East. Words like the Near East, East Asia, and the real intellectual kicker, the little heard geographical term, Euro Asia. All just another way of saying as many as "1/3 of all Native Americans" came from the Israel Palestine area. (quoting National Geographic.) To read more:


What's so strange about Indians coming from Jerusalem? Caucasians, or white people or white people as we know them today, came from the Caucasus Mountains also known as Georgia (Europe). The same land once known as ancient Persia.

The first Persians were white.  So why not White Indians from Jerusalem? 

This U.S. Government web page documents possible findings that the first Native Americans were of Caucasian ancestory. 
 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9837837

I have compiled the news headlines, sources and links which substantiate the Book of Mormon and the Bible story combined. 

Key research words for study is Haplogroup X. Other Notables words are Haplogroup T. Both which come from Lebanon, or Egypt. Both Haplogroups, X and T can be found in many Native American Tribes. Other notable key words of reference are Native American Jew, Cherokee Jew and as many as you can imagine. The evidences are in, the Book of Mormon is legit, it has been proven by science.  But Science has been to busy to note the Book of Mormon said the same 180 years prior many of these discoveries.

What is lacking is man's will to admit to the Biblical and scientific proofs. All of which confirm Book of Mormon claims.

DNA Versus Book of Mormon? 
Fact or Fiction? 


It should also be noted the very same year the anti Book of Mormon DVD was published by Living Hope Ministries, DNA Versus the Book of Mormon in 2007, the American Journal of Human Genetics also in 2007, reported that there was indeed evidences Native Americans came from the Middle East.

Just goes to show, that where there is great truth, there are very erroneous and prejudiced people. 

I hope you enjoy the all these links to great Native American DNA info results. As time may permit me, I will add even more.

Nearly one-third of Native American genes come from west Eurasian people linked to the Middle East and Europe, rather than entirely from East Asians as previously thought, according to a newly sequenced genome.

 Origin and Diffusion of mtDNA Haplogroup X
 American Journal of Human Genetics


The results of this study point to the following conclusions. First, haplogroup X variation is completely captured by two ancient clades that display distinctive phylogeographic patterns—X1 is largely restricted to North and East Africa, whereas X2 is spread widely throughout West Eurasia. Second, it is apparent that the Native American haplogroup X mtDNAs derive from X2 by a unique combination of five mutations. Third, the few Altaian (Derenko et al. 2001) and Siberian haplogroup X lineages are not related to the Native American cluster, and they are more likely explained by recent gene flow from Europe or from West Asia. Fourth, the split between “African” X1 and “Eurasian” X2 subhaplogroups of X is phylogenetically as deep as that within the branches of haplogroup U that also differ profoundly in their phylogeography. Thus, subhaplogroup U6 is largely restricted to North Africa (as X1), whereas subhaplogroup U5 is widespread in West Eurasia (as X2). The phylogeographic patterns and the coalescence times that we obtained here suggest that the basic phylogenetic structures of the mtDNA haplogroups in West Eurasia and North Africa are as ancient as the beginning of the spread of anatomically modern humans in this region. Finally, phylogeography of the subclades of haplogroup X suggests that the Near East is the likely geographical source for the spread of subhaplogroup X2, and the associated population dispersal occurred around, or after, the LGM when the climate ameliorated. The presence of a daughter clade in northern Native Americans testifies to the range of this population expansion.

mtDNA haplogroup X: An ancient link between Europe/Western Asia and North America?

 

Abstract

On the basis of comprehensive RFLP analysis, it has been inferred that approximately 97% of Native American mtDNAs belong to one of four major founding mtDNA lineages, designated haplogroups "A"-"D." It has been proposed that a fifth mtDNA haplogroup (haplogroup X) represents a minor founding lineage in Native Americans. Unlike haplogroups A-D, haplogroup X is also found at low frequencies in modern European populations. To investigate the origins, diversity, and continental relationships of this haplogroup, we performed mtDNA high-resolution RFLP and complete control region (CR) sequence analysis on 22 putative Native American haplogroup X and 14 putative European haplogroup X mtDNAs. The results identified a consensus haplogroup X motif that characterizes our European and Native American samples. Among Native Americans, haplogroup X appears to be essentially restricted to northern Amerindian groups, including the Ojibwa, the Nuu-Chah-Nulth, the Sioux, and the Yakima, although we also observed this haplogroup in the Na-Dene-speaking Navajo. Median network analysis indicated that European and Native American haplogroup X mtDNAs, although distinct, nevertheless are distantly related to each other. Time estimates for the arrival of X in North America are 12,000-36,000 years ago, depending on the number of assumed founders, thus supporting the conclusion that the peoples harboring haplogroup X were among the original founders of Native American populations. To date, haplogroup X has not been unambiguously identified in Asia, raising the possibility that some Native American founders were of Caucasian ancestry.

Did King Solomon’s Navy Discover America?

Mystery Mountain, Los Lunas, New Mexico.  That’s where a fascinating find was discovered with the Hebrew inscription of the Ten Commandments.  What is amazing about this find, is that the ten commandments were written in a Hebrew script that is so ancient, it was last used around and up to the Babylonian expulsion.  This means it was probably written between 2,500-3,000 years ago!  How did this script, as well as the text of the ten commandments wind up in New Mexico, so many centuries ago?        “Over two thousand years before Columbus "discovered" America there were people of semitic origin in New Mexico worshipping the God of Israel.

DNA scientists claim that Cherokees are from the Middle East

 In his famous book, “The History of the America Indians” eighteenth century explorer and trader, John Adair stated that several hundred Cherokees, living in the North Carolina Mountains, spoke an ancient Jewish language that was nearly unintelligible to Jews from England and Holland. From this observation, Adair extrapolated a belief that all Native Americans were the descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.

 Native American Jews?
A Fulfillment of Prophecy?

In 1650, Rabbi Menashe Ben Israel, Chief Rabbi of Amsterdam recorded an incredible story in his book Mikveh Yisrael. He relates a conversation that he had with a Jewish Dutch explorer of the Americas.
The explorer related how he made contact with the Native Americans but after trying to communicate with them in every possible European language, he had no success. Being a Jew, as was his first mate, these two began to talk amongst themselves in Hebrew. To his utter amazement, upon hearing him speak Hebrew to his first mate, the Native American chief responded in kind and stated, “ShemaYisrael.”

Dear reader. To read text articals pertaining Book of Mormon archaeology, scroll half way down.

If the Book of Mormon truly is an ancient history of America, we can search the Book of Mormon, then search archaeology to discover if the Book of Mormon is accurate. 1 Thessalonian's 5:21 states" Prove all things; hold fast that which is good". Only a fool does not test his or her Christian belief to see if it withstands scrutiny and " tough well reasoned questioning". He or she who does not test or question everything in life, religion or career has missed the boat, and the very meaning of life. Which is to find the better way spiritually and temporally, holding fast to that which is good.

THE BIBLICAL CHRIST CARRYING A SHEPHERDS STAFF

THE BIBLICAL CHRIST CARRYING A SHEPHERDS STAFF
In the Book of Mormon, 3 Nephi testifies Christ came to America. Christ, in Gospel of Luke is asked a question by the Apostle Peter most people miss. Peter ask Christ who He was, Christ's reply was, who do YOU/THEY say that I am. Luke 9:20. Native Americans record a white god who walked among them. When asked who He was, His reply was to ask, WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM? In ( 1964 ) Pierre Honore wrote a book who's title speaks for it'self. In Quest of the Fair God Pierre Honore illustrates a white God among the Native America, who was named many different names where ever He went. Mr. Honore says, " The legend of a particular white God has survived to our day from all ancient civilizations of Central and South America. The Toltecs and Aztecs of Mexico called Him Quetzalcoatl, the Incas called Him Viracocha To the Maya he was called Kulkulcan who brought them all their laws, and also their script, and was worshiped like a God by the entire people. To the Chibchas, he was Bochica, the white mantle of light. To the Aymara of Peru he was Hyustus, and to this day they will tell you he was fair and had blue eyes. Everywhere in the Indian states of Central and South America the legend of the White God is known, and always ends in the same way. The White God left his people with a solemn promise that he would one day come back."

A Hebrew People In America?

Can there be Hebrews in America? What does the Bible say?



Matthew 15:24



But He ( Jesus ) answered them and said, I am not sent but unto the LOST SHEEP of the house of the house of Israel



Jesus told us He must minister to Israelites " other sheep I have not of this fold then also must I bring ", ( John 10:16 KJV ).



Ezekiel 34:6;11;12-13 declares:



6My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.



11For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.



12As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day** that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.



** ( in the day means during Christ earthly ministry 2000 years ago )



13And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.



For the Book of Mormon to be a valid history of an ancient people long dead, there must be Biblical evidence such a people exist. The words of Christ and Ezekiel confirm such a people are scattered world wide.
