DNA Evidence Supporting the Book of Mormon

There is no DNA evidence supporting the Book of Mormon.


The Book of Mormon teaches that the people of the Americas are descendants from Lamanites, who originally crossed the oceans from Jerusalem, sometime near 600 B.C.


No DNA research has been found to substantiate this claim.  In fact, DNA and linguistic studies indicate the America's were populated by people from Australia, Mongolia, & Siberia.  Pectroglyphs indicate some Chinese origins.  More here.  Another study identified nearly identical Native Amerian matching DNA in 31,000 year old Siberian skeletons. 

Native American people are not Lamanites.

Some saints belive the Book of Mormon took place in the "Heartland of America."
Dr. Ugo Perego, primary author of the Book of Mormon and DNA Studies gospel topics essay, says there is no genetic evidence the Book of Mormon took place in the heartland of the US. 


In 2006 the LDS Church changed the introduction to the Book of Mormon from "...the Lamanites, and they were the principal ancestors of the American Indians." to "...are among the ancestors of the American Indians."
