Archaic Mormons

Post by moksha » Mon Mar 15, 2021 6:27 am

Three features of Mormonism I remember reading on apologetic LDS internet sites:

1. The Adamites were our ancestors and they all were part of the Mormon faith. They originated in the Garden of Eden and were kicked out when they gained sentience, to then live at Adam-ondi-Ahman on the North American Continent, which later became Daviess County, Missouri. The Archaic Mormons of that dispensation were not yet ready for the penultimate Mormon doctrine of polygamy, so such info was not included in the fruit of knowledge. Even if it had been, Adam had yet to meet his eventual in-laws.

2. Apart from the first Archaic Mormons was a second group that had evolved on the plains of the Serengeti in Africa. This group would later spread out to other parts of the globe. Latter-day Saints would name this group pre-Adamites, although the pre-Adamites descendants would give them the name Homo Sapiens.

3. At some point in the story, the Archaic Mormons met and intermingled with the Homo Sapiens. The tellers of the story on those LDS internet sites were a bit fuzzy on precise meeting details. Perhaps the Adamite descendants traveled across the Bering Sea bridge and made their way to Israel.

This has some plausibility, does it not? :)
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

Ah. Adam and Eve were among the ancestors of the people on Earth when kicked out of the garden. It all makes sense now.

What happened to the Adamic group and the Homo Sapiens group during the great flood that covered the entire earth and only 8 people survived, including at least one gay person who pointed out the rainbow to the other 7 people?

While most of the world was trying to figure out how Native Americans got here from the Old World, Mormons were concerned with how the rest of the world got there from Missouri. Topsy Turvey.

How did his wife, Egyptus, feel about their arrangement? Maybe it was not as confusing as having a Greek name in a world where everyone spoke Adamic.

Since they both were filthy degenerates, according to scripture, maybe it was an open relationship. It really must have been, given all the incest that would be necessary to repopulate the entire world from just eight people.

What if by that time instead of an open relationship, the eight Adamites were polygamating to raise righteous seed? The much larger group of Homo Sapiens was doing its neolithic thing.
