Possible arcaelogical evidence of the BOM?
Thought by some to be a carving of the "Tree of Life" told in Lehi's Dream...we may never know for sure. Even still, here is a testimonial of someone who saw such a carving in the Yucatan:
"I am a non-practicing member of the LDS church and am sceptical of things like this as well. However, I just returned from a trip in the Yucatan where we saw many ancient Mayan structures and this image of the Tree of Life was given to me from another ruin in central Mexico. Just to cast a little more light on this carving, it is much more than just a tree. There is a man kneeling to the left of it holding a ball next to a woman. Two men are facing away from the tree. A man on the right of the tree is knelt down writing in a book. A smaller man is kneeling next to him. There is a river in the background, and behind it a building. A man is walking up to the tree with material covering his face. Below him is a bar. There is also fruit on the tree. Perhaps you could explain these items as well as "just the tree."
The ball (fruit?)
Two men (Laman and Lemuel?)
building(great and spacious building?)
Covering his face (Sounds like he is ashamed, maybe?)
Bar(rod of iron, anyone?)
you get it...
