Have you ever seen the South park episode about it. (It might convince you that, even if God existed why would he fucking go to the US ?)

JOSEPH SMITH TRANSLATION OF THE BIBLE {Matthew 4:1-23}
Matthew 4: 1-11 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be with God And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights,and had communed with God,he was afterwards an hungered,and was left to be tempted of the devil.And when the tempter came to him,he said,If thou be the Son of God,command that these stones  be made bread.But he answered and said,It is written:Man shall not live by bread alone,but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God .Then Jesus was taken up into the holy city,and the Spirit setteth him on the the pinnacle of the temple.Then the devil came unto him and said, if thou be the Son of God,cast thyself down:for it is written,He shall give His angels charge concerning thee:and in their hands they shall bear thee up,lest at ay time thou dash thy foot against a stone.Jesus said unto him,it is written again,Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.And again,Jesus was in the Spirit and it taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain,and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world,and the glory of them;And the devil came unto him again,and said,all these  things will I give thee,if thou will fall down and  worship me. Then Jesus saith unto him,Get thee hence Satan:for it is written,thou shall worship the Lord thy God,and Him only shall thou serve.Then the devil leaveth him,and,behold, angels came and ministered unto him.                                                                                         Matthew 4:11 Then the devil  leaveth him,and now Jesus knew that John was cast into prison,and he sent angels,and, behold, they came and ministered unto him.( John)                                                                                                                                                 Matthew 4:18 And he saith unto them;I am he of whom it is written by the prophets;follow me,and I will make you fishers of men.                                        Matthew 4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee,teaching in their synagogues,and preaching the gospel of the Kingdom,and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people which believed on his name.

Hello! this page is about Joseph Smith, he was a remarkable man.
Introduction

Joseph Smith, Jr. (December 23, 1805 – June 27, 1844) was an American religious leader and the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, which gave rise to Mormonism. Smith is regarded by his followers as aprophet.

Smith was born in Sharon, Vermont, the fourth child of Joseph Smith, Sr. and Lucy Mack Smith. By 1817, Smith's family had moved to the "burned-over district" of western New York, an area repeatedly swept by religious revivals during the Second Great Awakening. Smith family members held divergent views about organized religion, but they believed in visions and prophecies and engaged in folk religious practices typical of the era.

According to Smith, beginning in the early 1820s he had visions, in one of which an angel directed him to a buried book of golden plates, inscribed with a Christian history of ancient American civilizations. In 1830, he published an English translation of these plates as the Book of Mormon, and organized the Church of Christ, as the restoration of the early Christian church. Church members were later called Latter Day Saints, Saints, or Mormons.

In 1831, Smith moved west to Kirtland, Ohio intending to establish a city of Zion in western Missouri, but Missouri settlers expelled the Saints in 1833. After leading Zion's Camp, an unsuccessful expedition to recover the land, Smith began building a temple in Kirtland. In 1837, the Kirtland Safety Society, a bank established by Smith and other church leaders, collapsed. The following year Smith joined his followers in northern Missouri, where earlier settlers fearing the rapid growth of Mormon communities fought them in the 1838 Mormon War. The Saints were defeated and expelled from Missouri, and Smith was imprisoned.

After being allowed to escape state custody in 1839, Smith led his followers to settle at Nauvoo, Illinois on Mississippi River swampland. There he served as both mayor and commander of its large militia, the Nauvoo Legion. In early 1844, he announced his candidacy for President of the United States. That summer, after the Nauvoo Expositor criticized Smith's practice of polygamy and called for the repeal of the Nauvoo Charter, the Nauvoo City Council ordered the paper's destruction. During the ensuing turmoil, Smith first declared martial law and then surrendered to the governor of Illinois. Although the governor promised his safety, Smith was murdered while awaiting trial in Carthage, Illinois.

Smith's followers regard many of his publications as scripture. His teachings include unique views about the nature of God, cosmology, family structures, political organization, and religious collectivism. He is seen as one of the most charismatic and inventive figures of American history, and his followers regard him as a prophet of at least the stature of Moses and Elijah. Smith's legacy includes a number of religious denominations, including the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Missouri-based Community of Christ, which collectively claim a growing membership of more than 14 million worldwide.
