Clovis Evidence Debunked

Posted by skiutah on Friday, February 27, 2009

LDS Alert: Don’t be deceived by scientists claiming that humans were killing animals in Colorado 13,000 years ago: Ancient American Clovis Butchers

LDS prophets have taught that the human race is only 6,000 years old. Here is one of many inspired quotes from the brethren on this topic: “We have evidence beyond dispute that Adam was driven out of the Garden of Eden about 6,000 years ago, or perhaps a short time less.” Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, p. 79

We also know from Mormon prophets that animals had no blood before Adam fell, making it impossible to kill earthly horses and camels 13,000 years ago: “There was no blood in his body and he could have remained there forever. This is true of all the other creations. This statement may not be very pleasing to our evolutionists, but it is true.” Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, p.75

If these archeologists had claimed American mustangs were being butchered 2,500 years ago, then that would be correct, because the Book of Mormon teaches that horses existed in America at that time: “there were beasts in the forests of every kind, both the cow and the ox, and the ass and the horse.” 1 Ne. 18:25

Or perhaps there were a few chapters accidentally left out of the Book of Mormon, like 1st Clovis and 2nd Clovis?

Fast and pray that this guy (see below link) will be called as a General Authority to help clarify these doctrines:

    Yes, this evidence creates a state of cognitive dissonance.

    Advanced humans in North American 13,000 years ago…… Yet the LDS prophets teach us that humanity only originated in Missouri 6,000 years ago, left America on a boat and landed in the middle east, and the came back via a boat at 600 B.C., American Indians were Lamanites, now are not. Inspired?

    Pfft – the Clovis are soooo last decade. 😉 Tool making humans in North America go back further than that………..

    Fossilised poo from oldest American people found

    The fossilised excrement has been dated at 14,300-years-old
    A trace of the oldest people to inhabit America has been discovered in a deposit of fossilised excrement.

    An analysis of the dung, deposited more than 14,000 years ago, will change our picture of the first Americans and mean the history books will have to be rewritten.

    A decade ago, most archaeologists bestowed this distinction upon the so-called Clovis people, named after the fluted projectile blades they left behind, beginning about 13,000 years ago. But since the late 1990s, evidence for an earlier peopling of the Americas has steadily accumulated.

    Now the oldest evidence has come from DNA extracted from dried human excrement recovered from Oregon’s Paisley Caves – dating to 14,300 years ago, some 1,200 years before Clovis culture – and the study provides apparent genetic ties to Siberia or Asia, according to an international team of 13 scientists.

    Transport yourself 170 years back in time. Imagine yourself having a conversation with Joseph Smith:

    Joseph Smith: “American Indians are descendants of Jews from Israel. Indians are Lamanites”

    You: “DNA evidence proves all American Indians are of Asian descent.”

    Joseph Smith: “Missouri is the Garden of Eden, humanity sprang from this place 6000 years ago.”

    You: “The Americas were populated by people from Asia who migrated at least 15,000 years ago from Asia. We have human dung that proves it.”

    Joseph Smith: “You’re excommunicated.”

    P Pratt “A Voice of Warning”

    My son just purchased this book; I had a free couple of hours and read it this afternoon.

    Without a doubt it claims the B of M clears up the mystery of the ancestry of the American Indians, tells of the origins of the buried cities being found in central and south America in the late 1700’s, how the landscape of America was formed and changed at the time of Christ’s crucifixion the separation of the continents at the time of the flood etc.

    I particularly liked the following quotes

    “Now, reader, let me ask, can anyone tell, whether the Indians of America are of Israel, unless by revelation from God?”

    Speaking again of the B of M

    “It reveals the origin of the American Indians”

    The book was originally published in 1854 never would have guessed this thing called DNA would come to be, guess God didn’t see fit to reveal that little trap to his Mormon Prophets! 🙂

    How do we know a Lamanite when we see one? They’re not the American Indians, so who and where are they? Is the Gieco Caveman a Lamanite?
