Has Science EVER YEILDED to Mormonism???

It seems to me that Mormonism is on the run... like the bank of a large river during spring run off... Mormonism’s claims are eroding faster than they can shore up their doctrine. Of course they will never admit this... but have they even gotten one thing right? Anything?Let’s just look at a few examples:

Mormon Claim: Native American’s are descended from an Israelite linage

Science: DNA conclusively proves that Native American’s can trace their ancestry back across the Barring Straight to middle Mongolia.

Mormon Claim: Their was no death on this earth prior to 6,000 years ago, prior to “The Fall of Adam “our first father.

Science: There has been both life and death on the earth for millions of years. Man in his current state has existed for over 80,000 years.

Mormon Claim: The first man and woman (Adam and Eve) lived in what is currently the State of Missouri, USA in the Garden of Eden.

Science: Mankind evolved out of Africa... Through our own DNA, every member of mankind can trace his or her linage back to our common beginnings in southeastern Africa.

Mormon Claim: Polynesians emigrated westward from the American continent to the Islands of the Pacific. They too are descendants of Father Lehi.

Science: Polynesians emigrated eastward from micro-Asia, Linguistic, DNA, plant DNA migration, archeological evidence is overwhelming and undeniable.(except to Mormon faithful)

Mormon Claim: The Sun borrows its light from some mystery planet called Kolob.

Science: This is so ridiculous, it hardly needs comment...however let me just state that the Sun does not borrow any of its power from any other planet or source...and is self powered.

Mormon Claim: Our solar system revolves around the this central planet, Kolob

Science: Our universe is expanding but it does not revolve around any central planet.

Mormon Claim: Noah collected two of every species onto an Ark prior to a universal flood, which was also the baptism of the earth.

Science: There is no observable evidence supporting the concept of a universal flood, no evidence supporting the concept of a so-called human bottle neck created with the death of the entire human population 4,000 years ago, no evidence that all earthly animal life migrated from some central final landing area following a flood. And "NO" evidence that Noah strategically placed each species throughout the earth so that their uniqueness would confirm Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.

Mormon Claim: Dinosaurs are not native to this earth, but were merely used parts from some other world used by God in the creation of this earth.

Science: Again a ridiculous Mormon claim, the Scientific evidence is overwhelming that dinosaurs are not only native to this planet, but an essential element in the evolutionally chain that reaches back millions of years.

Mormon Claim: Horses were first introduced to the American continant in 2200 BC with the arrival of the Jaredites.

Science: An early ancestor of horses in the Americas were killed off my humans in about 12,000 BC. Horses were not again introduced into the Americas until the arrival of the Spanish in the 1500’s AD.(The same could be said about all other Book of Mormon claims regarding sheep, pigs, elephants, barley grapes, figs etc etc)

Mormon Claim: All living things exist in the same form in which they were created by God.All plant, animal and human life is unique unto itself and does not change. Man procreates man. Dogs procreate dogs; corn seeds grow corn etc.

Science: All life is subject to the same forces of natural selection, mutation, genetic drift. Life is always in a constant state of evolution and change. This process has been going on for billions of years.

Mormon Claim: The earth is 6,000 years old.

Science: The earth is billions and billions of years old. This is a confirmed fact.

Science is observable, testable and always subject to question. Mormonism is fixed, absolute and is not subject to any subjective test, skepticism or questioning.

So again I ask the question... Has Science EVER had to YIELD to Mormon Doctrine? Has the Steam Roller of Science ever had to Yeild to the Ant of Mormonism crossing the street and say oops we were wrong... and admit that you Mormon's... you got that right???

I like to look at artistic photos of people, especially at their smiling faces. If you have some free time go to for hispanic single and rate pictures of singles from your neighborhood. Adult Singles

Well done.

Mormonism has to reach into the magic bag of "faith", considering they don't have any allies in science or history. It's like being a Tolkienite and just "knowing" that Middle Earth, elves, dwarves and hobbits are right around the corner.

Great post.

That was great. I was raised Mormon and never heard of Kolab. Did you know Kolab backwards is...

Isn't the Earth estimated to be about 4.5 billion years old (give or take a week)? That seems less than "billions and billions." It's just a few billions, really. Although, I guess that "billions and billions" could mean as little as 4 billion (2 billions and 2 billions)

I'm not sure, but I heard one of the writers of Star Trek was Mormon, which would explain Balok.

I agree with most of what you said, but some of the "Mormonism" are purely member theories. For example, I've heard several theories on the Garden of Eden. One - when it was taken off of this earth it left a big hole, which is the Gulf of Mexico. There are others...

Wow! That's so weird! Being a TBM I myself haven't heard of half of these 'claims'. Where in the world did you find them?? So intersting... I feel like I've been lied to! HAHAHAHAHA!

well ya that is the GREAT thing about mormanism... they don't go off a general rule book say , such as the BIBLE. everything the so called teachers are talking about is their own take on the subject. it is not universal and there in lies the problem. uneducated people teaching untruths and false doctrine to those who are unfortunate to be in their class.and those unfortunate souls take what they hear at face falue and never question it because that is what the moron faith teaches blind faith.

But you are forgetting a very important fact...

FAITH always trumps SCIENCE. ALWAYS. If they disagree, then FAITH wins. period.

I appreciate what you've written, but YOU MUST CITE what you say. Since your voice is not authority standing alone, you must include citations for every bold statement you make.

You forgot to mention the magic underwear. Even former SF 49ers QB Steve Young grudgingly acknowledged he wore these on a 60 Minutes interview - he didn't really say much about it though - looked very uncomfortable when it was mentioned.
