Examining the claims of Jonathan Neville and the Heartland movement

When I became a man, I put away childish things

Jonathan Neville is back from The Book of Mormon “Evidence” Conference. At this conference-slash-money-making cash grab, Neville reports:
There were serious topics and discussions, all in a spirit of love and kindness and optimism.
Among the “loving”, “kind”, and “optimistic” things that came out of this conference was this loving, kind, and optimistic logo Neville invented to make fun of “M2C* intellectuals”:

Neville’s juvenile jab at those who disagree with him reminds me of something the apostle Paul once told the saints in Corinth:
Brothers and sisters, do not be children in your thinking; rather, be infants in evil, but in thinking be adults.
(1 Corinthians 14:20 NRSV)
—Peter Pan

* “M2C” is Jonathan Neville’s acronym for the theory that the Book of Mormon took place in Mesoamerica and that the hill Cumorah in the Book of Mormon is not the same hill in New York where Joseph Smith received the plates of Mormon.
