Do the Mormons ever watch anything like Apocalypto or study the Mayan history at all?

Seems they should have used an etch a sketch because there are so many revisions and obvioius missteps.

Most likely the same color of the sky in the temple and visitor's center.

I say it should be black.

finny how Mormons'(including the head Mo' himself) have just latched onto...and are trying to take over, another civilization's culture saying that these people are descendants of "The Evil Ones'"...

Talk about a group who know nothing of history, nor are they encouraged to learn about history independently....

Ever wonder why the Masonic symbols are so much like Mormon symbols? Since the Masons were around centuries before Joseph Smith was even born and both he and Brigham Young were both Masons .... seems to me the LDS Church just steals what it likes and uses it as its own.

Where did the Masons get them from. Did they steal them from Solomon's Temple?

I Come to believe that This So called "Jesus" Character to be a vampire, One reason I believe this to be true is because an average human couldn't withstand those beatings and for that long without being a vampire.

It is provable but not in the way you are thinking. You can know things without a scientist or archeaologist proving it to you.

Stuff mentioned in the Bible has been dug up and proven to be true. However, NOT ONE item has ever been found to prove that the people mentioned in book of mormon has ever been found. not one tiny shred. How can that many people live and not leave a trace? They can not! Unless, they were all vaporized.
