Journal of Discourses 8:196; “In the beginning, after this earth was prepared for man, the Lord commenced his work upon what is now called the American continent, where the Garden of Eden was made. In the days of Noah, in the days of the floating of the ark, he took the people to another part of the earth: the earth was divided, and there he set up his kingdom.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, October 7, 1860
Mark 1:14; “Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”
The Garden of Eden was probably on the Euphrates. Genesis 2:10-14 names four rivers; Pison, Gihon, Hiddelekel and the Euphrates. None of those four rivers are in Independence, MO or America for that matter!
