Geoffrey Biddulph over at Millennial Star discusses the recent “news” story at the LA Times on DNA and the Book of Mormon. It’s an old story, years old, retold with the finest anti-Mormon blinders firmly in place – but somehow it merits front page attention. Never mind all the real news going on – stories like the national security disaster of turning over six major US ports to an Arab company. The fact that some anti-Mormons have an old argument against the Book of Mormon is the headline that Americans need to see.
What I especially appreciated about Geoff’s post was his find of a great post on the DNA issue at Right Side Redux, a blog by Justin Hart that I had not seen before. Justin’s post includes a listing of numerous LDS articles on the DNA issue (including mine) that might have helped the LA Times get some accurate information about what the Book of Mormon really teaches and how the DNA evidence affects (or does not affect) the Church.
Thanks Geoff and Justin!
