Here is some info you may not know:
BYU has many professors that are not mormon. BYU's professors and researchers abide by all the same rules and regulations that any other university does. Even if a single professor had a special personal religious based agenda, he wouldn't get far without being fired. They teach evolution in science class. They have to operate this way to be an accredited university.
When it comes to archeology, BYU has some of the best mid-eastern and south american researchers and professors there are.
It was also a BYU professor that has done the best work so far to show that WTC 7's collapse was fishy. How was that "mormon influenced"?
I see no evidence that this guy is making any types of claims. He, so far, has simply shown his work. He didn't publish a book. He isn't teaching a class on it. He isn't writing his findings in any journals of science that I can find.
It's obviously all very preliminary. So back off the anti-religious angle for now.

I do have one thing to say to those who are saying that the symbols are too white, or look photoshopped. If you followed the links, the caption under the photo very clearly states that the symbols have been enhanced with aluminum powder at the site. So, this explains why they are so starkly contrasted with the darker colored rock. It is amazing what you can learn when you read the captions.

Speaking of Universal languages, I wonder if the ET's have picked up on OK yet? Virtually all human languages have adopted OK as a universal statement of approval.
Anyway, I wanted to ask you if you have compared ancient Indian (as in India) carvings with those of the Maya?
I have traveled to India several times and I am really struck by the similarities between their ancient carvings in temples and other locations, and those of the Maya.
Their artwork looks to me to be stylistically similar to the Maya. Particularly the depiction of women, complete with noserings, earrings, headgear, etc.

Scientists have apparently discovered like symbols scattered throughout several areas of the world Dating of these symbols showed that they were made over an extended period time, beginning around 1700 BC.
Locations include Colorado, Israel, Australia, Yemen and South America. Whats really strange to me, is that they say the translations tell the same story.
Researchers say this possibly points to a common ancient language.
Something, I bet, some posters here have been preaching for a long time.
I think, instead of a common language, maybe one civilization, that really got around and left its mark. Literally.
Or maybe the Tower of Babel isn't as far fetched an idea as it first appears.
