DNA vs. The Book of Mormon



A new video in which several scientist joined with Molecular Biologist and Former Mormon Dr. Southerton and Mormon Anthropologist Thomas W. Murphy in a discussion of the problems DNA research poses for the Book of Mormon claims.


"The fact that DNA is inherited and that each individual is the product of his/her progenitors means that DNA can be used to not only create unique identifications, but also to identify members of the same family, the same clan or tribal group, or the same population." BYU Molecular Genealogy
