Look at the cover.
See the massive pyramids at the bottom?
These images are being imprinted on the minds of young LDS from the earliest age.
Thanks to neuroplasticity, these images will stick with these children throughout their lives. They will find it very difficult to change their thinking about the Book of Mormon.
As one of the M2C intellectuals has said, he "can't unsee" Mesoamerica when he reads the Book of Mormon.
Then, when these same youth discover what the prophets have actually taught about the New York Cumorah, they will experience deep cognitive dissonance.
Many of them, maybe most, will conclude that if the prophets were wrong about the New York Cumorah, how can we trust them about anything?
It's difficult to think of anything more destructive to faith in the Book of Mormon than to have M2C intellectuals teaching the youth that the prophets are wrong-except it's also pretty destructive to faith when the youth realize that Mesoamerica has nothing to do with the Book of Mormon, despite what they've been taught their entire lives.
Here is the book description:
This could have been an awesome resource for parents to use in teaching their children about the Book of Mormon, but the book repudiates the prophets throughout.
These books teach that the prophets were wrong and that the Book of Mormon took place in Mesoamerica, an area that has exactly zero to do with the Book of Mormon.
I'm sure Sister Coughanour has the best of intentions. She has relied on the M2C intellectuals and their followers, who have been teaching M2C for several decades now.
But nevertheless, the damage is being done.
The results will be evident as these youth grow up and learn the truth.
