Is it true that some Jewish groups acyually think that the American Indians and Australian aboriginal people are descendants of the lost tribes of Israel?
From what I understand, the Mormons believe that the native Americans are descendents of the Lost Tribes of Israel. Apparently their darker skin is God’s punishment for their wickedness.
A couple of years ago scientists did some kinds of tests and concluded that there was no way Native Americans could be related to the Jewish people. The Mormons were all up in arms. Once again, millions of people were happy to sacrifice truth at the altar of irrationality, dogma and tradition.
