The Book of Mormon claims to be "another testament of Jesus Christ,"1 written by the prophet Mormon.2 It describes two civilizations (Jaredites and the sons of Lehi) that presumably existed in the Americas during biblical times.3 Two (Jaredites and Nephites) of the three peoples were completely wiped out through warfare with only the Lamanites existing today.4
