In Simon Southerton's "Losing a Lost Tribe", he dismantles the Mormon idea of a middle eastern origin for Native Americans. He mentions that there are five major lineages A,B,C,D,X. The X lineage is a mostly european lineage, and Mormons generally hoped that this lineage would tie to their beliefs of an Israelite migration to the Americas. No one outside of Mormon circles took that position seriously. This X lineage makes much more sense in the light of French flint tools showing up along American shores.

Sorry Mormons, your church still isn't true.
