DNA doesn’t prove Book of Mormon historicity, either

The past several issues have established that DNA studies do not refute the historicity of the Book of Mormon. The flip side to this issue is the erroneous claim made by some Latter-day Saints that DNA studies prove the Book of Mormon.

Because the pro-DNA argument is closely tied to a specific geographical model, I’d like to reiterate that there is no official geography for Book of Mormon events. Eventually, I’ll discuss the various geography hypotheses and will offer the reasons why I believe that the Mesoamerican model fits best.

But for now it’s important to understand that believing Latter-day Saints can respectfully disagree as to where the events described in the Book of Mormon took place.
