DNA does not just disprove a"previously common Mormon belief." DNA disproves the very basis of the Book of Mormon and the Mormon faith. The Book of Mormon says that Jews came to the New World in 586 BC-broke into two groups that fought against each other and the evil group was victorious. These Jewish survivors became the Native Americans. So, according to the Book of Mormon, Indians are descendants of Jewish settlers. However, extensive studies has proved conclusively that Native Americans have NO Jewish DNA (some of these studies are by Mormon scientists). If Indians have no Jewish DNA then the Book of Mormon is based on total inaccuracies and if the Book of Mormon is totally incorrect, then the Mormon faith is completely false.
