    Still not overly pleased with over convergent northern New Jersey border, or the western border of Virginia for that matter which appears to be identical to the arbitrary boreder of Pennsylvania

    I like how the font (which is just supposed to be hand-written of course) kind of looks vaporwave

    What if the Nephites and Lamanites Were Not only Real, but also Survived to the Age of Exploration?

    Oh no doubt, but that's rather a different phenomenon to the Melungeons or any thing of the sort. It would be like using the Basque DNA in the Mountain West to infer secret communities of Basque exiles were all over the place, when in reality they were just ethnic communities within the Spanish...

    While obviously I'd need to know more to say definitevely, I don't like the overly convergent NJ Triangle.

    What if the Nephites and Lamanites Were Not only Real, but also Survived to the Age of Exploration?

    So if I'm understanding you're argument correctly (and I'm still not entirely sure that I am, I feel like your writing is slightly obscuarantistically) your argument is that the failure of Spanish Colonies along the Atlantic Seaboard resulted in the colonists, including some Sephardic Jews, to...

    What if the Nephites and Lamanites Were Not only Real, but also Survived to the Age of Exploration?

    The notion that "OTL I think the association of Jews with Native Americans came from the South Carolina Spanish fort settlements at the beginning of the colonial era." This is an interesting claim, I'm not sure exactly what you mean by it and would like to hear more. Why did the assosciation...

    Medieval America Mark III

    Here There Be Monsters: The Giant Gila Monster In the courts of the East, many tales are told of great dragons. There are the lake monsters, prime among them the dread Champy, and horrors like the Ogopogo are taken as a simple fact of life in the ten thousand lakes of the Old Northwest and...

    What if the Nephites and Lamanites Were Not only Real, but also Survived to the Age of Exploration?

    Considering what we're told in the Book of Mormon, and what the assumptions of Smith would have been while writing it, for the sake of this thread I think we have to opt for something like the early documentary hypothesis - that is to say, the Bible is a more or less unified document and Judaism...

    What if the Nephites and Lamanites Were Not only Real, but also Survived to the Age of Exploration?

    Even if we accept that absolutely no animals were brought and there were no active efforts by the Hebrews to domesticate local animals (which in either case seems pretty arbitrary and silly to me), this is a very narrow view. A large self sustaining population of Hebrews has the potential for...

    What if the Nephites and Lamanites Were Not only Real, but also Survived to the Age of Exploration?

    It's impossible to have an historically accurate Book of Mormon without livestock, they were mentioned extensively and taken for granted. There are three ways that Mormon apologists generally get around this - one, and most obvious, the Israelites brought their livestock with them, but they went...

    Bithynia and Thrace as Cradles of Civilization

    I suppose it's possible but doesn't seem particuarly likely - the region doesn't really have the fertile river valleys that Egypt or Mesopotamia had, but then neither did Mycenae. Being so close to the steppe is also probably a disadvantage, one that possibly brought about the end of one or...

    What if the Nephites and Lamanites Were Not only Real, but also Survived to the Age of Exploration?

    It's simply untenable to have the Nephite and Lamanite states so large from a rag-tag band of settlers in 600 BC, and its not necessarially implied by the text either. The only viable thing is a limited geography model that localizes these states and most of their histories to smaller locals -...

    Medieval America Mark III

    Actually, doing a little cursory research, it seems like you're more in the right - my impression was that the original Minoan religious symbol was the single-path labyrinth, which was later reinterpreted by the Greeks to be a confusing maze, but it seems like the single-path depiction of the...
