DNA and the Book of Mormon
- "The Hebrew origin of those races in our book is so unequivocally stated and so emphasized that if the said American races could be proven beyond doubt to be of other than Hebrew origin, the claims of The Book of Mormon would be shattered." (B.H. Roberts [LDS], New Witness for God, Vol. 3, p. 40)
- "While the work of the BYU scholars is confined mostly to intellectual circles, some church members who have always identified themselves with Mormon teachings on the people known as Lamanites are suffering crises. 'It's very difficult. It is almost traumatizing,' said Jose Aloayza, a Midvale, Utah, attorney and Peruvian native who likened facing this new reality to staring into a spiritual abyss. 'It's that serious, that real. I'm almost here feeling I need an apology. Our prophets should have known better. That's the feeling I get.' " ("DNA Results Challenge Core Mormon Beliefs," Local News, Seattle Times, Aug. 14, 2004). 
- "As human DNA is passed from parents to offspring, most of it is recombined and mutated, giving rise to all of those characteristics that make each person unique. Some componenets of our genetic inheritance, however, remain relatively stable over the course of generations. Occasional mutations in those components are easily identified and accumulate in a particular order and at a particular rate so that, compared across a broad spectrum of DNA samples, they act as a kind of time line. These 'genetic markers' never disappear but are passed on to each generation. Over eons, different populations accumulate their own distinctive set of markets." -National Geographic Society, Pamphlet on "The Genographic Project"
