Sic et Non once again provides a very solid, plausible and deft demonstration that the Book of Mormon is the most correct book on the face of the entire earth exactly like Joseph Smith said so. It's time for all of us to just go back to church and believe. What, you don't like that it is still not a direct link to the Book of Mormon or Jaredites? So what? It's in Mesoamerica! Man yous guys n gals are a wee tad fussy aintcha?!

The items brother Dan is putting forward can be applied as supportive of both these chains of thought...

The Mayans kept bees, bees are mentioned in the Book Of Mormon, therefore the Book of Mormon might be true.

Bees existed in upstate New York at the time Joseph Smith lived there, bees are mentioned in the Book of Mormon, therefore Joseph might have written the Book of Mormon.

Just more apologist garbage. Had to laugh that Dan said "this article isn’t about Jaredite times, but it’s getting fairly close." 200 AD is not "getting fairly close" to Jaredite times. And those bees did not come from the Old World. They have nothing to do with Jaredites or with any other fantasy people written in the pages of the Book of Mormon. This kind of nonsense from apologists could be avoided if they would follow the counsel of their own apostle Oaks-"research is not the answer".

Oh, its all good for the apologists. They aren't researching anymore, just finding loose ends and little tidbits of stuff to whet the appetite these days. Nothing major. It's now forbidden, and lo, obedience shall prevail! Look 200 A.D. is at least in the ball park........sort of........well, I mean, it's a lot closer than 1600 A.D., ya gotta give 'em THAT! :wink:

Maybe bees were really humming birds, a la horses and swords.

That's it! You have been inspired by the Spirit! That would help make a very GOOD title for a book on Mormon Apologetics. "Tapirs and Hummingbirds: Why the Book of Mormon is True."
