The Book of Mormon tells of a vision story about tree of life. Izapa Stela 5 resembles the story, as it contains the depiction of a tree and some human characters found on a large stone in the mesoamericana region of Izapa, Mexico. LDS’s finally found some concrete evidence giving validity to the book of mormon and prior to any unbiased research or confirmation the news spread like wildfire through the church. Firesides and research papers breathed a collective sigh of relief and wonder as the church now had its medal of proof for validation in the religious world. Aha! Told you we’d find proof!!Happy members! Happy happy members. Uh, not so fast. While one Mormon scholar translated the glyph and even the corresponding characters to match the book of mormon and names of the characters on a 2000 year old relic, other top, independent researchers were inconclusive about the meaning of the stone. But like most un-news, the correction never made the rounds like the initial report. To this day, since the first translation in 1941, to subsequent attempt most recent 1976, no conclusions have been made. Now if they could only find that darn DNA they need from the natives!
