If we forget history we are bound to repeat it.<quoted text>
BY was just a man speaking his thoughts, but it certainly isn't and wasn't the doctrine of the Mormon faith.
If you want to do harm to the Mormon Church why not find something they are doing wrong today? That way we won't have to rely on "he said, she said" stuff from 180 years ago that no one can accurately verify since no one is alive that was there.
Joseph Smith taught Garden of Eden is in Missouri? Joseph Smith teach anything else that may have been his own thoughts and not in the book of Mormon that I need to know about?

We do not know exactly where the original site of the Garden of Eden is. While not an important or foundational doctrine, Joseph Smith established a settlement in Daviess County, Missouri, and taught that the Garden of Eden was somewhere in that area.
