    It is troublesome that May is interpreting the geography based on where he lives. He has failed to disclose to his viewers that his work can’t be true because there is no Sea West, west of Zarahemla (his Missouri).

    It is likewise troublesome that he places BoM lands outside of the United States (into Canada).

    May’s use of an uncorroborated letter in his presentations from J. Golden Jensen was challenged by the BMAF in January 2010. (bmaf.org/node/277)
