Heaven Is Right Here

The single most interesting I've learned about the world from the Mormons:
"Latter-day Saints know, through modern revelation, that the Garden of Eden was on the North American continent and that Adam and Eve began their conquest of the earth in the upper part of what is now the state of Missouri. It seems very probable that the children of our first earthly parents moved down along the fertile, pleasant lands of the Mississippi valley."

From Mormon Apostle John A. Widtsoe's Evidences and Reconciliations, Salt Lake City: Bookcraft 1960, p. 127 (found at Utah Lighthouse Ministry)
Yeah. That's right. Missouri.

I have always thought there was something special about the people from northern Missouri.
