M2Cers are typically paranoid about any direct comparisons between M2C and the Heartland models of Book of Mormon geography. They have reason to be.
Direct comparisons expose their basic belief that the prophets were wrong about the New York Cumorah. Comparisons also expose the way they manipulate the text to find "correspondences" to Mayan culture that every actual Mayan expert knows are illusory, if not delusional.
Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course. People can believe whatever they want.
But of all the M2Cers, the ones who run MormonDialog are among the most paranoid of all.
People have been sending me links to this page:
(I'll post some choice excerpts below because the moderators there have a habit of deleting posts they don't like.)
The M2Cers apparently think that anyone who posts about Heartland on their site must be me in disguise, using another name(s).
And yet, I haven't posted anything there in years, either in my name or another name.
What the M2Cers don't realize is that Latter-day Saints around the world are discovering the logical and factual fallacies that underly the Mesoamerican/two-Cumorahs theory. They're speaking up on social media.
Only an M2Cer would think this is threatening. Heartlanders are happy for people to explore multiple working hypotheses and make informed decisions, but that approach is anathema to M2Cers.
M2Cers need to get ready. They should start by re-examining the premises behind M2C itself.

Even their "Senior Admin" is anonymous, which makes sense because of his paranoia.
