By attacking Chris of course. Here is the thread that was quickly closed by the mods.

That one got closed fast.

I like that DCP used his usual tactic of exaggerating a fault to an absurd degree to deflect from someone pointing out a legitimate fault. It's such a tired, transparent tactic of his at this point that to call it tired and transparent doesn't quite do it justice.

Oh yes, because we all know DCP is just a scoundrel and a liar, liar, pants on fire.

Sounds like a big ass fire to me. :lol:

Gee said Chris contacted his receptionist, but the way I remembered it was his receptionist was on Chris' facebook, read Chris's comment about the rumor, and then posted that she knew Gee was in Europe and had been asked by him to photocopy a bunch of pages related to the papyri, which was consistent with the rumor that Gee was in France to do work on his discovery. I just went to the original Facebook thread to see, and I notice that she has removed her comment from the discussion.

I could be wrong and maybe Chris did contact her, but I got the impression that she saw the thread and decided to throw in her own two cents, unsolicited.

Gee's response is different than the usual cordial way that academics respond to inquiries into their research, especially when dealing with students, peers, or future colleagues within their field. Heck, I've contacted professors I've met on newsgroups with questions and they've always been happy to educate and share.

Just seems like John tossed common courtesy out the window.

Did Gee get a free trip to Europe for all this? Just curious because that would be very nice for Gee. I'd stay believing in the BofA for some free trips around the world too. ;)

I'm sure he's flying on BYU's dime. Which means the tithe payer's dime.

In LDS terms, it's called a mission, but it's anything but free.

John Gee: "(1) For a number of years, I have been gathering information not only about the Joseph Smith Papryi, but their ancient owners and the owners’ extended families. I have pursued dead ends in New York, Connecticut, Washington, Atlanta and elsewhere."

Ancient? Amongst whom, the Lamanites? Who want's to tell him there are no pyraminds in Atlanta?

So, was he literally called to serve a mission? Sorry for my ignorance. I haven't been keeping up.

He probably feels entitled to it on some level. That is, I'm sure he thinks that, because he has had to endure so many butt-kickings, that he deserves to fly around the world on the Church's and BYU's nickle and dime. The same is probably true of people like Hamblin and DCP, too.

Not really, but he thinks so...he's connected with NAMIRS. They all think they are the Blues Brothers, 'on a mission from god'.

I can confirm seeing this Facebook message. I saw that Chris made mention of Gee's European research and the receptionist/intern said she was photocopying a ton of material (800+ pages?).

Did Gee get to see Paris? God, how I would love to go there.

Maybe I could tell the Church I'm ready to investigate alternate garment designs and publish my work in Vogue Paris. All I need is airfare and a small stipend.

I can't recall ever hearing this story. Is there a thread where this is discussed back when it happened?

From personal correspondence with those who were there.

I thought Gee and Hauglid were bosom buddies.

Why did Gee slam the door in their faces?

Maybe Gee takes his cues from the learned Herr Schryver.
