If the Isthmus of Tehuantepec — Sorenson's "narrow neck" of land — at miles across is "narrow," how can the 90 miles from the "narrow neck" to Sorenson's Cumorah fit the Book of Mormon description of "an exceeding great distance"? And so this is a king-size kind of problem, it seems to me, for so-called Book of Mormon archeology. The word "cimiter" is considered an anachronism since the word was never used by the Hebrews from which the Book of Mormon peoples came or any other civilization prior to AD [] and because metal swords are not found in the Americas in the Book of Mormon timeframe. Stone toolsparticularly projectile points and scrapersare the primary evidence of the earliest well known human activity in the Americas.

First, it shows that Upper Paleolithic Siberians came from a cosmopolitan population of early modern humans that spread out of Africa to Europe and Central and South Asia. Nehru and Gandhi both worked for liberation Months were counted in the days between phase cycles of the moon.
