*The item below has been updated with new graphics for the disc face and entrapment.  It is still available in its original format.* 

DNA Evidence for Book of Mormon Geography is the result of research conducted over the course of three years in scientific journals, books, and the scriptures.  The author, Rod Meldrum, began the research because of work being done with colleagues on a natural sciences textbook project.  One of the focus areas of that project was worldwide population movements and genetic drift. 

After encountering anti-Mormon banners at LDS Church General Conference in 2003 claiming that there was DNA evidence that "proves the Book of Mormon False", he was confident that the issue would soon be answered by the LDS scholarly community.  While the issue was certainly being addressed, and he accepted the answers as a posibility, the answers being provided did not satisfy one critical aspect.  The Book of Mormon unambiguously states that in the latter-days, there would be a 'remnant' of the House of Israel found on the Promised Land.  There were still no answers that agreed with the scriptural passages and the DNA evidence being unveiled.  He felt that as a scientific researcher, with access to several world-class research libraries and scientific search engines, he should begin research on the subject.

This research lead to some rather unexpected DNA findings that then lead to questioning the origin of  the theories surrounding the geographical locations of the Book of Mormon.

The format of the DVD is one of a presentation given before a live audience for a special 'scholarly fireside'.  The entire 4-hour presentation has been divided into 18 sections that follow the scriptural premise of beginning from a firm foundation and then moving 'line upon line' in a natural progression of discovery. 

Viewers will be taken through literally hundreds of exciting concepts that all combine from multiple disciplines to form an astoundingly compelling case for the wisdom and knowledge of The Prophet Joseph Smith, the truthfulness of Book of Mormon, and the validity and majesty of the restored gospel of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  This robust evidence comes from correlation and verification through DNA, prophetic, scriptural, historical, climatological, archaeological, social and cultural evidences.  Each section provides another piece in the puzzle until it becomes quite clear.


The live presentation has now been seen by tens of thousands of individuals from coast to coast and around the country.  Attendees have been surveyed both before and after the presentation and their resulting comments have been overwhelmingly positive.  It is hoped that this DVD will strengthen the resolve of each viewer to study more diligently the words of the Book of Mormon itself, as well as help put the 'tools' in the hands of parents, teachers, and leaders to address and combat the false information surrounding the DNA controversy.


There is a tremendous interest in this subject at this point in time, and you will find this presentation highly informative, well researched and thoroughly documented.  You will be excited to read again, with a fresh new perspective, the Book of Mormon.  


The entire presentation has been divided into 18 sections accessible by menus rather than the continuous format used for the beta version.  Individual sections include: 1. DNA evidence, 2. Geography, 3. Joseph Smith, 4. Promised Land, 5. Prophesies and Promises, 6. Tents, Temples & Teepees, 7. Weather and Climate, 8. Migratory Beasts, 9. Chronological Evidence, 10. Nephite Defenses, 11. Nephite Structures, 12. Mound Builders, 13. Culture, 14. Artifacts, 15. Maps, 16. Travels, 17. Conclusions and Results, 18. Contact Information. 

The total length of DNA Evidence for Book of Mormon Geography DVD presentation is approximately 4 hours.  It is complete with ISBN (bar code) numbers and is professionally retail shrink wrapped with updated graphics and an instructional insert.
