Hi again, we've been here before. Its really not that difficult to reconcile. JS-H 1:34 makes far more sense if you place the BOM events in Asia. eg, the Book of Mormon is an account of the former inhabitants of the American continent and the source from whence they sprang ... Asia. All the pre-Columbian inhabitants of America sprang from Asia, not from Jerusalem. Repeat, the former inhabitants of the American continent sprang from Asia. JS 1:34 is difficult to reconcile with an American setting.
Theories placing the BOM events anywhere other than Asia are also impossible to reconcile with the fact that open ocean voyages in vessels large enough to carry groups as large as the Jaredites, Mulekites and Lehites from the Middle East to the Americas weren't possible until 1492. Southeast Asia is the only location that fits the material culture of the Book of Mormon. Its the only place that had elephants, cattle, pigs, horses, silk, chariots, iron swords, scimiters in the right time. Happy to provide you with evidence of all the above again. But maybe we should compare to your evidence of these things in the Americas. The Americas had none of these in 600 BC. That's difficult to reconcile without speculation.
For example, its far easier to produce evidence of elephants being useful to man in southeast asia in 2300 BC then it is to provide evidence of elephants being useful to man in 2300 bc in the Americas. Same goes for cattle, pigs, horses, silk, chariots, iron swords, scimiters. So please, evidence based reasoning, not ad hoc speculation about hairy forest mammoths, domesticated tapirs and pineapple fiber silk. Please. The Book of Mormon works without all this stretching. No need to make it more difficult than it has to be.
