CLAIM SIX
  The sixth seemingly fantastic claim I make is that
these people were educuated to the highest degree,
being engineers, expert contractors, accomplishing
feats before Christ‛s time that were impossible to
do in 1830. Looking at their descendents, the indians,
and their living conditions with their limited ability
to count and sparse written language, it appeared
to be an utterly ridiculous statement.
 
  Temple of the Thousand Pillars  
  Many scientists said that the ancestors of the Native Americans did not know how to count. This temple site at Chichen-Itza proves otherwise ; it has exactly 1,000 pillars.  
     
  To state that these people also built citys, highways, and building with cement was also considered utter nonsense. By 1830, we couldn ‛t build anything out of cement and so people would not have believed this existed.  
     
 

Helaman 3:7

And there being but little timber upon the face of the land, nevertheless the people who went forth became exceeding expert in the working of cement ; therefore they did build houses of cement, in the which they did dwell.

 
  Nearly every city we visit north
of the “ narrow neck ” used a very fine quality cement ( much superior to anything we have today ) to build their buildings, temples, cities, and highways.
