    The Kukulkan pyramid is a monument to a great bearded white god who came among his people for a time then promised he would return at the end of days. The description of this Kukulkan bears a remarkably familiar tone to Christ's alleged visit to the Nephite people.
    Mayan civilization is estimated to have arisen in 500 BC. Was this the ancient Nephite civilization which arrived in the Americas in approximately 590BC?

    You call it corn. Our people call it "maize".

    They did human sacrifice, didn't they? Catholics eat the body of Christ and drink his blood.
    Hmmmmmmmn! Better posthumously baptize them all, Truthspeaker.

    I think there is an explanation here. The book of Mormon claims both things have happened. It claims ancient Jews in 600BC fled from Jerusalem and brought with them Hebrew and Egyptian writing systems with them.
    It also claims Christ visited in 34 AD when he came to the temple, administered to the people and promised to return again.

    I doubt it. More likely, spanish conquistadors were busy fluffing up the story about their initial interaction with the natives while mormons are busy looking for anything that validates their beliefs. After all, if it WERE the case that jesus was a south american god who promised to return.. well.. I guess he pretty much left a bunch of natives hanging, eh?
