So, you have nothing. Here I was getting all excited.

I find this sentence particularly important:

Quote:
The Epi-Olmec culture represented a gradual transformation of, rather than a sharp break with, the Olmec culture.

Ok, type in the URL "http://www.google.com" - type in the keyword 'epi-olmec culture'. Wow - 10 pages+ of results. Here is the first one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epi-Olmec_culture
Quote:
The Epi-Olmec culture was a cultural area in the central region of the present-day Mexican state of Veracruz, concentrated in the Papaloapan River basin, a culture that existed during the Late Formative period, from roughly 300 BCE to roughly 250 CE.[1] Epi-Olmec was a successor culture to the Olmec, hence the prefix "epi-" or "post-". Although Epi-Olmec did not attain the far-reaching achievements of that earlier culture, it did realize, with its sophisticated calendrics and writing system, a level of cultural complexity unknown to the Olmecs.[2]
You can't be serious that you couldn't find that.


Nothing in these screams "Nephite" to me. What about it says "Nephite" to you?

That is one way to look it it. Another may be that Nephites found the remains of Olmec/Jaredites and repurposed the remains of their civilization for their uses.

Nope, and they still haven't dealt with the population problems and the text itself.

They had the priesthood (aka power of God). God can do things like heal the sick, cause plenty of rain to fall, etc. Those little miracle things that the BofM mentions from time-to-time.

What a bunch of crap..

We're that true the migrating Mormons would not have suffered the death and losses crossing the plains.

Uhhh hello? The pioneers who died were sent to earth simply TO DIE on their trek to Zion.
Elohim hand picked em in the preexistence.

How else would LDS Inc brainwash the youth with their modern day death marches?

Speaking of LDS Youth Treks, do the Jewish send their children to Summer Concentration Camp to firm up their faith?

I bet those starving thirsty children in Africa wish God would stop ignoring them...
