A person placed a comment on my blog today asking for information about the validity of the information contained in the following video.
The video claims that in 2011 a boy named Marcos Montezuma found an ancient tomb in Panama containing lots of gold artifacts including some “gold plates” that are very similar to the description of the gold plates that Joseph Smith described.
It seems to me that a discovery like this would be buzzing around Mormonism like crazy yet I don’t recall ever hearing about this discovery.
Is this a fraud?
Is this story common knowledge?
Have I been living in a freezer?
If anyone has further knowledge about this please share it.
If this story is true, it seems to me that it would be very significant in validating the fact that these types of gold plates were indeed used anciently for record keeping in this particular area of the world.
