I don't think the critics are engaging Clark on this point.

Snark aside, can you help me understand why apologists view the text to be full of Hebrewisms, even preserving a Hebrew coronation rite - all 36 points - hundreds? of years after their arrival (see Kevin’s post)? Yet  we shouldn’t expect that level of cultural impact to have a discernible impact on Mayan artifacts?

Well, yes, that was my point. Mesoamerican civilization develops gradually over thousands of years. Apologists would have us believe that a group from the Near East joined with them and established political and religious dominance for 1000 years and brought specific technologies without interrupting the continuing development of Mesoamerican civilization. It’s a tough sell.
