The Genetics of The Book of Mormon

Orson Scott Card is one of my favorite authors. He started his career writing science fiction books like Ender's Game. Nowadays he writes a lot of LDS themed material.

I recently read an article of his on Mormon Times that discusses the Genetics of the Book of Mormon. It is aimed at those that think DNA and other scientific research proves the Book of Mormon false. His article is articulate and well worth the read. It can be found here.

Dan,
Thanks for the link on this. It looks like it'll be interesting!

By the way, I'm a little slow on this, but thanks for stopping by and commenting on my entry at LDSWritersBlogck!

Thanks for stopping by C. Lynn. The article made me think of possibilities that I hadn't considered before. I found it to be very illuminating.

I like OSC's blogs -- even if I don't agree with them, they're thought-provoking.

Hey, I'm setting up a virtual blog tour for a friend and wonder if you'd like to be a host. Would you pop me a note at tristi AT tristipinkston.com and I'll share details?

Since all of my family are not members of the church and are alwasy throwing little curve balls at me, this is a great link! Thanks for sharing it, Dan. I never would have found it on my own.

Hi Tristi,

I'm very excited about the virtual blog tour. I went to the website you sent me. The book sounds fantastic.

Hi Ali,

Always glad to help.
