But all of this hoopla about the length of the scroll doesn’t really matter in the end. It is a red herring. The Facsimiles alone are enough to tell us all we need to know.
I've been saying this all along. This coupled with Anubis's missing snout is going to prove the death of the Book of Abraham!
It's very important that we bear in mind that Joseph Smith considered the Facsimiles to be part of the Book of Abraham -- revelations and translations. In fact, it could be argued that the Explanations of Facsimile No. 2 were considered to be Joseph's finest translations -- more important than the story contained in the chapters of text. Apologists have long tried to water down the importance of the Facsimile Explanations and focus on the story contained in the chapters. They do this because they know they can't defend the Explanations.
I assert that Joseph Smith considered the Explanations of Facsimile No. 2 to be his finest hour as a translator and the most important element of the entire Book of Abraham. Apologists be damned for the ____ liars they are. President NelSatan is a ____ liar and I wish the bastard would drop dead.
