Gospel Principles (2009): "There was no death."

The Church's basic doctrine manual, Gospel Principles, reaffirms that Adam's fall brought mortality and death into the world. The 2009 edition of Gospel Principles teaches:

"Jesus Christ created this world and everything in it" (p.23). "When Adam and Eve were placed in the Garden of Eden,... there was no death" (p.28). "Adam and Eve were married by God before there was any death in the world" (p.219). "Their part in our Father's plan was to bring mortality into the world" (p.27).

Originally written in 1978 for investigators and new members, the 2009 edition will be used for Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society second and third Sunday instruction during 2010 and 2011. The manual is also an approved resource for Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society first Sunday lessons.

No death of any kind for any living being before the fall? That is falsified by the scientific fossil, geologic and DNA record.
