Overview of the genetic challenges to the Book of Mormon story[ edit ] The genetic challenge[ edit ] The understanding of Joseph Smith and of traditional Mormonism is that the Book of Mormon reveals that the American Indians are descendants of the Lamaniteswho descended from Lehi and are therefore a "remnant of the House of Israel.
Murphy and ex-Mormon plant geneticist Simon Southerton state that the substantial collection of Native American genetic markers now available are not consistent with any detectable presence of ancestors from the ancient Middle East. They have argued that this poses substantial evidence to contradict the account in the Book of Mormon.
Both Murphy and Southerton have published their views on this subject Southerton The arguments of both Murphy and Southerton were disputed by David G. Followup of genetic claims in the media[ edit ] Southerton's work was later used as a source for a article written by William Lobdell and published in the Los Angeles Timeswhich stated: It burrows into the historical foundations of the Book of Mormon, a year-old transcription that the church regards as literal and without error.
Columbus called you 'Indians,' thinking he had reached the East Indies.
The Lord calls you 'Lamanites,' a name which has a pleasant ring, for many of the grandest people ever to live upon the earth were so called. In a limited sense, the name signifies the descendants of Laman and Lemuel, sons of your first American parent, Lehi; but you undoubtedly possess also the blood of the other sons, Sam, Nephi, and Jacob.
You came from Jerusalem in its days of tribulation. You are of royal blood, a loved people of the Lord. In your veins flows the blood of prophets and statesmen".
And Lehi and his family became the ancestors of all of the Indian and Mestizo tribes in North and South and Central America and in the islands of the sea".

Nephites and Lamanites in the Book of Mormon[ edit ] According to the Book of Mormon, the terms "Nephites" and "Lamanites" actually lose their original significance pursuant to the visitation of Jesus Christ to the American continent after his resurrection ; his coming ushered in a period of peace in which the two conflicting nations merged into one, in which "[t]here were no robbers, nor murderers, neither were there Lamanites, nor any manner of -ites; but they were in one, the children of Christ, and heirs to the kingdom of God.
Later on in the narrative, as members of the unified nation fell away from the faith, the term "Lamanite" comes to signify wickedness rather than blood heritage, whereas "Nephite" came to signify a follower of Christ; both terms alluded to the previous nations' predominant moral tendencies.
Eventually, however, even the righteous "Nephites" grew proud and fell into wickedness more severe than that of those termed Lamanites.
The nation of the Lamanites is understood to have continued on beyond the close of the Book of Mormon. Response to the genetic challenge from Book of Mormon defenders[ edit ] Book of Mormon population models[ edit ] Defenders of the Book of Mormon have made arguments that center on the idea that the Book of Mormon peoples from the Middle East formed only a small contribution to the population of the Americas, and that their genetic heritage may have been diluted beyond what can now be detected.
This geographical and population model was formally published in an official LDS Church magazine, The Ensignin a two-part series published in September and October Advocates of the mound builder setting for the Book of Mormon maintain that native peoples of Central and South America are predominantly of Asiatic origin.
