Science Proves Faith Wrong - Again

I remember hearing stories of Mormon families going on to Native American reservations and actually stealing children in the name of their religion. They believe that Native Americans were direct descendants from a lost tribe of Israel. It seems that a fundamental selling point for the Mormon religion has been proven wrong by DNA tests. Native Americans actually migrated from Asia. (I could have told you that!) This would seem to be a death rattle for the Mormons, but religions don’t necessarily rest on scientific evidence but on mystical experiences instead. Don’t take my word for it, read about it here.

I hadn't heard of this...interesting.

Many religious folks won't look at scientific evidence because it will crumble their faith. They just don't want to give it up or even consider that they might be wrong.

HA HA HA HA HA!!! Mormons "stealing children in the name of their religion" ??!!!!.... "Mormon religion proven wrong wrong by DNA tests" ???!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!! Wow, just WOW!!! I'm just wondering how somebody as stupid and irresponsible as you:

1)Was able to figure out how to use a blog in the first place.

2)Is allowed to do so by his equally stupid and irresponsible parents (you have the reasoning of a 12 year-old).

Even I (not a mormon myself) know that the DNA evidence used in those attacks against mormons is plain crap and EXTREMELY sloppy and unreliable science at best. It is in no way conclusive or even helpful it is so unreliable. Those of us that are real scientists want to just throw up every time one of you wanna-be's with an axe to grind against a particular group start talking science like you know something. As far as your "stealing babies" accusation. All I've got to say is LINK!! Your evidence is "stories" you remember hearing??? How incredibley irresponsible and stupid of you. You really need to do some REAL research before you go opening your mouth against other people and religions. This blog of yours is pathetic and a joke.

I have studied the Mormon Religion vigorously. i grew up in a mormon community, not being mormon, i was beaten, damned, and cursed upon by these "Saints". i have read the Book Of Mormon and The Doctrine and Covenant. and as far as stories of Mormon members stealing children in the name of thier religion, the stories ARE true. there are actually quite a few Records of this happening. And the DNA tests proving the Lamanites (Native Americans) did not exisit are actually EXTREMELY accurate, the Native Americans are actually relatives of a Mongolian race. The Book Of Mormon makes refrances also to Horses and wheeled Carts, Steel items, and the Seven-Day week, none of these exisited in the intire western hemisphere before the Pre-Columbian Era. so for all you whom claim this Author to be "irrisponsible" and be unintelligent in any way, perhaps you should have done your research as well. To get any "evidence" you might need to see that i am true, you can find simular coments in the documentary "Under the Banner of Heaven" by John Krakuer, and by searching through The New York Times.
