I think I just found my new sig line.

I hope you don't leave us completely, Blixa. Please stay in touch via email.

I'll PM you later.

Well thanks, though I went back and edited out "level" as I thought it read rather clumsy with it.

I'll probably write something about my thoughts in the next day or so and post it in the O/T forum.


I fixed it. LOL

LOL, no prob. Nehor has developed a cordial relationship with his duct tape, so my job has been easy lately.

Not to worry 10B, he didn't.

Is this a rebuttal? Are you suggesting that the Lamanites would not be a remnant of the House of Israel in this case?


No. It's a statement of canon. Please provide a reference for your earlier supposition.


I tried, you told me I was ignorant about war without explaining why. In addition, you have Mormon bragging about being a pure Nephite, the quick absorption of foreign elements (Zoramites picked up new religion very quickly), and the boast of enemies not having power over the Nephites when the Lamanites and Nephites were under one government (I.e. there was someone else out there).


Reference for your earlier supposition, please.

->
That the Lehite family quickly mingled genetically with pre-existing inhabitants and the Mulekites (a mutt breed themselves) and that genetically their descendants would be indistinguishable from earlier migrant groups.


Nehor. CFR, please.

No, he didn’t.


Paging Will. You out there? You ready to back this up? You've had a couple of days to research this...

No, you're not still waiting on me. I provided you with it before you even made the post from which I'm quoting. See:

That scripture talks about Missouri being on the border of the Lamanites. It depends on how thick the border between mesoamerica and Missouri is.
