Very informative article. I appreciate you sharing it with us. After reading about the British judge's summons of President Monson because of a lawsuit by a disaffected member, I'm reminded by this article that it is difficult to always be able to tie religion and science together. Although after years of contemplation, I find that almost all science fits in very nicely with my concept of the teachings of the Church. Thanks once again for an informative article.

I think the flaw in the genetic DNA testing is that they compared the many samples of Native American DNA with that of only one Jew. The Book of Esra (9:2) in the Bible says that the Jews heavily intermarried with the people of the land after they returned from the Babylonian Captivity. The people of the land included Arameans, Canaanites, Philistines, Arabs, Esauites, etc. Because of that I believe the Jewish DNA of today is no longer pure. I think a scientific, scholarly comparison of the many samples which they took from the Native Americans, should be compared with peoples from around the world to see where they find a match. Since I have traced the Israelites throughout the world through language comparisons, their DNA could be found almost anywhere. However, the language comparisons which contain the highest amounts of Hebrew are in the northern European languages, such as in the Scandinavian languages, English, Icelandic, German, Dutch, etc. Let's make the DNA comparisons between American Indians and the native northern Anglo-Saxon peoples for a higher chance of getting a match.
