This is our last conversation with David Rosenvall. In our last few episodes we’ve tried to poke holes in David’s theory of the Baja Theory of the Book of Mormon. In this episode, we’ll talk about strengths of the theory.
I think one of the other things that makes Baja a little unique is this concept of being isolated. The text over and over seems to imply that they were alone. They didn’t have encounters with other people. They were always the kings. They were always fighting with their brothers. When they found the Mulekites they were so excited that they put it in their record. When they found evidence of another culture that had been wiped out, they put it in their record. So you have to have some location that seems very isolated. How do you isolate a group of people for that long that they don’t talk about anyone else? In a peninsula like Baja, even today is isolated from mainland Mexico, even with all we have, so it’s a great place for isolation. It’s a semi-arid, isolated environments are probably two of the strongest strengths that we have.
We’ll talk about the narrow neck of land.
There’s only one place you can actually see mainland Mexico from Baja. It’s in the area just a little bit north of halfway down here at a place called Bajia De Los Angeles where you can actually see across here. Everywhere else you can’t actually see, which is interesting because the text talks about, in this very location, the text says where the sea divides the land. We assume they could see it, so here it’s about 40 miles. Everywhere else it gets up into 60, 70, 80 miles. The only place they could have seen mainland Mexico is right where it was described, right where the narrow neck, the line of defense. We actually look at that geographically that their one location, and the only on Baja where you have a place that you can across, it’s kind of exciting.
You might want to watch this episode on YouTube. We will zoom in on his map as he talks about different geographical features of the Baja Peninsula that he thinks correlate with the Book of Mormon. (Don’t forget to check out our previous post on DNA.) I hope you check out our conversation….
