Book of Mormon Foundation (BOMF) https://www.bomf.org/ started from the apostate The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (RLDS) now calling itself The Community of Christ (CofC) with the “Restoration Branches” which split off of CofC. Here: https://www.bomf.org/bmf-history.html On its site is the Queztal Codex: https://www.bomf.org/quetzal-codex.html , with sporadic publications (sporadic as in dates of publication). Notice the bottom two links to short articles mentioning “Mesoamerica” and complaining about the “Heartland Model” and “Rod Meldrum.” In the one page article “Book of Mormon Geography Remains a Hot Topic,” Louise Edward Hills is mentioned as the FIRST to place the setting solely in Mesoamerica, quoting John L. Sorenson : Hills is mentioned in more of these Queztal Codex articles. Here is Louise Edward Hills book for your perusal: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=wu.89058377359;view=1up;seq=5 Here is Oliver Cowdery writing in Letter VII that the final battles of the Jaredites and Nephites occurred at the Hill Cumorah in New York: https://www.josephsmithpapers.org/paper-summary/history-1834-1836/90 Ha ha ha! Book of Mormon Central, The Interpreter Foundation, BMAF, and the now defunct F.A.R.M.S. etc. all started by LDS Members, plagiarized a FRAUD of a geography theory from the RLDS Church. And gullible members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, bought it. That’s why images like this with Maya imagery exist in Church buildings, and sadly in Temples. Inspired by a fraud.
Visit JosephSmithPapers.org and in the search box enter “Cumorah”. It will return 16 results for “Cumorah” and the 16 links to articles from Church History. But none of the 16 results will include the two instances Cumorah is mentioned in Letter VII. These two links, two pages next to each other: https://www.josephsmithpapers.org/paper-summary/history-1834-1836/90 https://www.josephsmithpapers.org/paper-summary/history-1834-1836/91 Oliver Cowdery wrote in the first: “on the fact, that here, between these hills, the entire power and national strength of both the Jaredites and Nephites were destroyed. By turning to the 529th and 530thpages of the book of Mormonyou will read Mormon’s account of the last great struggle of his people, as they were encamped round this hill Cumorah.” In the second he wrote: “He, however, by divine appointment, abridged from those records, in his own style and language, a short account of the more important and prominent items, from the days of Lehi to his own time, after which he deposited, as he says, on the 529th page, all the records in this same hill, Cumorah and after gave his small record to his son Moroni, who, as appears from the same, finished, after witnessing the extinction of his people as a nation. Why are these two pages left out of the search result, you may wonder? Why are they hidden? These two statements directly conflict with the Mesoamerica Geography Theory for The Book of Mormon which originated with RLDS Scholars and is now being promoted today by Scholars who are members of the LDS Church or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This Mesoamerica theory claims there are two Hills of Cumorah, the original one being in Central America where the final battles took place and where the Prophet Mormon buried the many records. Now you know why the two statements above by Oliver Cowdery conflict with this plagiarized Two-Hill Cumorah Mesoamerica Geography Theory. So what influence is JosephSmithPapers receiving which would leave out these two search results? A computer error in the search is unlikely. Search features have long been available in many software products, such as MS Excel, Word, and so forth. Notice the influence by BookofMormonCentral (BMC) on JosephSmithPapers. BMC promotes the Mesoamerica Geography theory. BMC recently published what they call a “KnoWhy” stating we should disbelieve Oliver Cowdrey in Letter VII. It’s FAKE NEWS so I won’t link to it. (It should be called a KnowLie.) But I will link to Jack Welch’s bio at BMC. Jack Welch the founder of FARMS and recently in 2015 the founder of BMC. Notice Jack Welch’s influence over JosephSmithPapers: https://bookofmormoncentral.org/content/donation-instructions 2007 - Present Consulting Editor, Joseph Smith Papers Project 2015 - Co-Founded Book of Mormon Central Now you know one the main sources of this FAKE Mesoamerica Two-Hill Cumorah Geography Theory and its influence on Church History.
