There were several correlations discussed, but I've always thought the huge difference in a flat topped pyramid versus pointed top would preclude such an influence.
Also the mayans have artwork of crushed and chained prisoners on the steps
up these pyramids, something that the egyptians didn't do at all.
One of the other proofs of this is an Olmec rock showing what appears to be a caucasion person. This supports the notion that somebody from accross the atlantic must have come over to the central american region.
that somebody may have brought with them stories of pyramids etc.
