Tzohar of Noah's Ark and the Jaredite Barge Stones and route?


Recommended Posts

1. The Tzohar in Noah's Ark was similar not identical to the shining stones Jehovah lit for the Jaredites.

2. Some scholars of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints suggest the Jaredite journey went from the Tower of Babel, Iran to the coast in Northern China.

Questions:

- If the Tzohar and Jaredite barge stones were similar, was Noah also around China at the time of the rain, perhaps from Mt. Tan or Huangshan?

- I'm not persuaded of the Asiatic route of the Jaredites. You? Is it possible they went in any other direction other than North and other than East? POssibly south through Arabia?

The common belief among the LDS community is that the Jaredites crossed Asia and embarked from China.  The Encyclopedia of Mormonism summarizes the most commonly cited Jaredite model, the one formulated by Dr. Hugh W. Nibley.  

The Jaredites carried on the warring ways of the steppes of Asia "upon this north country" (Ether 1, 3- 6). Issuing forth from the well-known dispersion center of the great migrations in western Asia, they accepted all volunteers in a mass migration (Ether 1:41-42). Moving across central Asia they crossed shallow seas in barges (Ether 2:5-6). Such great inland seas were left over from the last ice age (CWHN 5:183-85, 194-96). Reaching the "great sea" (possibly the Pacific), they built ships with covered decks and peaked ends, "after the manner of Noah's ark" (Ether 6:7), closely resembling the prehistoric "magur boats" of Mesopotamia.[ii]

J. M. Sjodahl summarizes the popular version first formulated by Elder George Reynolds:

According to this theory, which Mr. Reynolds characterizes as a supposition, merely, the Jaredites went in a northerly direction from the Valley of Nimrod as far as the Caspian Sea, which they crossed; then, turning eastward, they journeyed along the Central Asia plateau; thence to the Pacific seaboard, most probably on the coast of China. Elder Reynolds does not state this as a proven fact. What is actually revealed is that their journey was a long one; beyond the limits of the inhabited world at that time.[iii]

Since you are banned, I'm not sure you will ever be able to reply, and from what I can see, I am not sure of all your points, but the Jaredites' first voyage was through the Mediterranean Sea to the Iberian Peninsula where the barges were built for the trip across the Atlantic. The Atlantic tends to have storms for about half the year through the equator where they would be taking off from Iberia, so for this type of voyage, they needed to be very seaworthy. Nibley was just wrong.

nuclearfuels isn't banned. That's just part of the avatar. As for where the Jardedites went, I wasn't there at that time so I can't make a definitive statement. I will suggest that the Brother of Jared got the idea of the shining stones from his knowledge of Noah's stone.
