1497: Rod Meldrum’s Book of Mormon Heartland Model
October 27, 2021
Join John, Gerardo, and Australian geneticist Simon Southerton as we break down the “Heartland Model,” which proposes that the events described in the Book of Mormon took place primarily in the heartland of North America. The main proponent of this model, Rodney Meldrum, and his followers have been described as a “movement” that could transform the LDS Church.
Simon will explain how one of the main pieces of “evidence” that the FIRM enterprise promotes is built on a single questionable claim that Meldrum has been making for over 15 years, even after being corrected by several non-Mormon scientists, Simon himself, FairMormon, and LDS scholars at BYU, including Ugo Perego.
