Most Americans have no idea that advanced cities once dotted the ancient North American landscape (Ancient cities and burial mounds. Over 200,000 total count).

“Very very few of us were conscious of the immensity of a place Monks Mound, Cahokia, opposite Saint Louis, which is bigger in its footprint than the Great Pyramid of Giza. We didn’t know that”

“The knowledge embedded in these earthworks and encoded in the structure is anything but primitive. It’s remarkable.” (Maximum Northern Moonset, Maximum Northern Moonrise, Maximum Southern Moonrise, Maximum Southern Moonset, Minimum southern Moonset)

“What I’ve learned now is just how amazing they were in terms of their knowledge of the solar system and of mathematics.”

“Artifacts of iron were found, artifacts of hardened copper, stone tablets with writing, regular farmers just plowing their fields would really turn up literally bushel baskets of arrowheads, spear points etc. (Copper Hopewell axes taken from Russell Naples Mound #8 [Zelph Mound] Dated 250 A.D. + or – 100 years, State Archaeologist of Illinois, 1979-87). These things were common place. (Hopewell Civilization — 300 B.C. to 400 A.D.) Some people such as Caleb Atwater and Squire and Davis, they believed the artifacts they were finding that were on these mounds, cities and earthen structures, that this was representative of and advanced civilization.”

“The science of archeology was really in its infancy at that time. There were only a few people using what we would consider to be even remotely modern methods.”

According to the Journal of the Ohio Historical Society, “No subject received more attention, or stirred more controversy among archeologists in the nineteenth century, than the authenticity and presumed meaning of the engraved stone tablets that were periodically recovered from the mounds.” — Ohio History, volume 107, Scholarly Journal of the Ohio Historical Society.

“And there are various things fueling these. There were religious, political and social agendas.”

“The Doctrine of Manifest Destiny allowed the United States Government to classify the Native Americans as ‘Savages’ by their terminology. And by calling them ‘Savages’ that would allow them to push them aside and claim basically their lands as America expanded in the westward direction.”

“Politically it would have been impossible for them to have taken lands away from Indians or any indigenous peoples if they viewed the as having rights even close to what they had as American citizens.”

“Manifest Destiny, the idea that American First Nations had never achieved anything worth preserving, has resulted in the wanton destruction of thousands and thousands of earth constructions, mounds, embankments, figures and settlements.”

“Science (of the day) did tell them that there were certain races that were superior and some that were inferior.”

“We would say that’s bad science, where you want to discount information because it kind of doesn’t fit what you think you see. And what you see, is what people saw at the time were these ‘Savages’ who were in this pitiful state.”

In 1860 Newark Earthworks – David Wyrick (http://www.econ.ohio-state.edu/jhm/arch/decalog.html)
Found wooden coffin made of oak.
Inside a skeleton, also a box 8.10 inches in size cemented shut in Ohio.
Little black stone inside, a picture of a man carrying something. Writing looked like some kind of Hebrew. Rabbis said it was an old kind of block Hebrew rendition of The Ten Commandments.
At the time is was possibly a hoax.

In early 1900 in Israel they found the same kind of block Hebrew.

Another stone was found, the Batcreek Stone in the Smithsonian. It was published upside down and put in the basement.
Many years later, a scholar found it and read it as Phoenician, ancient Hebrew. (http://phoenicia.org/alphabet.html)

Stylometry Or Wordprints

If you like statistics, you’ll love digging into this. What are the odds….?

Stylometry (also called wordprints) is used to determine authorship to anonymous or disputed writings. It has legal, academic and literary uses. It has been used in the authorship of Shakespeare’s works, the Federalist Papers etc. and often used in court.

This technique was first used on the Book of Mormon in the late 1970’s and published in 1980 under the paper titled “Who Wrote the Book of Mormon?” Was it Oliver Cowdery, Joseph Smith, Jr. or Solomon Spaulding or none of the above? A nice statistical who done it.

It was ground breaking. It compellingly showed that the different authors listed in the Book of Mormon did not have the same word patterns and the patterns indicated Oliver Cowdery, Joseph Smith Jr. and Solomon Spaulding were not the authors. However, it was not able to withstand 100% critical analysis but much of the work held valid.

In 2002 John Hilton and associates at Berkley relied on a more sophisticated pattern method. Their work has passed peer review. Using their method they were also successful at identifying non Book of Mormon authorship.

Here are the basic results in a nut shell. The two books withing the Book of Mormon (Nephi and Alma, ancient American prophets) actually are written by different authors or one in a trillion chance of being the same.

The odds that Joseph Smith wrote Alma are 1 in 40,000. The odds that Joseph wrote Nephi are way over 1 in a quintillion (precisely less than 2.7 x 10-20 that goes like this, million, billion, trillion, quadrillion, quintillion).

The other potential authors tested were Oliver Cowdery or Solomon Spaulding.

Conclusion = Joseph Smith, Oliver Cowdery and Solomon Spaulding are not the authors of the two books tested within the Book of Mormon. This may provide evidence enough for you to conduct your own discovery.
Below is John Hilton himself. Below that is the link for even more information on the details

The Book of Mormon is True.
