    For those who don’t get it, I hope I won’t kill the joke by explaining it:

    In 1990, a Church member wrote a letter to the First Presidency asking whether or not the hill in New York state called the “Hill Cumorah” by the Church was in fact the actual Hill Cumorah from the Book of Mormon. Turns out, apologists theorize the actual Book of Mormon Cumorah is in Central America, and early Church member’s identification of the New York hill may be mistaken.

    The letter is here:

    Apparently, a retraction letter was later sent, since the original later totally contradicted modern apologetic theories regarding Book of Mormon geography.
