    There are two separate arguments contained in this faulty statement. First, is the presentist viewpoint, and the second is the conclusion of engaging in human sacrifices. Neither account provides any information regarding human sacrifices. That is an inference the respondent provides within the context of comparing the two accounts. Therefore, there is no need to address this. What will be addressed is the first part of the response to determine whether or not the comparison of the two accounts are reflective of the same event and person of that event.

    In Pedro de Cieza de Leon's account, we read:

    Things being in this state, the sun, shining very brightly, came forth from the island of Titicaca, in the great lake of the Collao, at which every one rejoiced
    Having read the original native American story (if that is what it was), I can state quite confidently that Christ was not crucified during Noah's time - a necessary condition for the story in the book of Mormon to have a connection with the native American story (if that is what it was).

    But, to paraphrase an old expression, "if you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with horsie poo". And lots of it!

    Yup. Just present what you think is your strongest piece of evidence (or two). We can go from there.

    Maybe we can get to the burning in the bosom.

    Or the non-existent gold plates.
    Or the kinderhook scandal.
    Or the Bank fraud.

    If "Christ in ancient Americas" is his best defense of Mormonism.....
