Last week's program dealt with Book of Mormon archaeology. (It's available here.) I don't have time for a detailed review, and so far as I know there is no transcript to engage with, but I'll make a few comments.
From what I heard, Martin is very well educated about the Mesoamerican theory. Undoubtedly he has read a lot and discussed the issues at length. However, he appears to have relied on material from FARMS/Maxwell Institute, Interpreter, FAIRMORMON, BMAF, and the rest.
I hope some day he considers the other perspective that I've written about on this blog.
In the program, Martin made numerous statements about North American archaeology that seem to be based on John Sorenson's list of problems with North America, which was one of my first blog entries. The archaeology of North America is so well known and established that I've reached the conclusion that FARMS/Maxwell Institute, Interpreter, FAIRMORMON and the rest are either refusing to learn about it or are obfuscating for their readers/listeners.
Martin is not to blame for the things he said on the program; his sources are.
Must be in the Sorenson translation.
As do all believers in the Book of Mormon.
