BOOK OF ABRAHAM FACSIMILE NO. 3​​ WEBSITE

Post by Shulem »

It's Joseph Smith's birthday and here comes Christmas! Without any further ado, I hereby announce my new website featuring the Facsimile No. 3 and it also introduces the discovery of the missing snout on the woodcut lead plate. Make sure you set your browsers to view the full page and simply scroll and enjoy.

Have a cup of coffee or tea. A glass of wine would be nice.

Enjoy:

THE BOOK OF ABRAHAM FACSIMILE NO. 3​​

Awesome, Shulem! take a look again at the picture placement in the section titled Commentary, the pictures from there to the end seem to be covering parts of your print. I tried at different zoom percentages, they still block words. From what I could read, very powerful presentation--looking forward to reading the rest.

This is a fine presentation. The story about Gustavus Seyffarth was very interesting. Thanks for the work, Shulem. :smile:

For whatever reason, and maybe this is a Chrome browser thing, but I'm only seeing ~3/4 of the presentation. It's like I'm zoomed in. Am I doing something wrong?

It's hilarious that anyone is asking me of all people how to do something on a computer. :lol: Okay, I'll put my total ignorance on display.

At the very bottom...Click Advanced Display Settings
You'll see a box to adjust your screen resolution.

On my laptop, to the top right of any window is this: ...

If I click that, I can adjust the screen resolution instantly.

Shulem how do mopologists like DanP get by the translations above the heads of each figure? I know they say something about men dressed in female attire (Much like J Edgar Hoover and one of Brigham Young's sons)

I use Chrome too. In the far corner of the top bar open the "Custom and control Google Chrome" (icon consisting of 3 vertical dots) and change your zoom setting in that tab. This process takes about 5 seconds.

It's a standard Egyptian translation. Sources and information can be more fully appreciated at Mormon Think:

Wow. That's really well done. Have you been sharing the link on other media platforms? r/exmormon has over 63k subscribed readers. I suggest starting there.

Would you be so kind as to share the link at r/exmormon, if you can? I'd be grateful if you would.

One thing that hasn't been mentioned is the fact that the writing in the register above the missing snout was not capped off in box form as other registers are. You'll notice that the jackal ear atop the head is given precedence and therefore the bottom of that register is NOT capped off because that would in effect chop into the ear itself. This is further proof that the jackal ear is in fact a jackal ear. LDS apologists can't spin that any other way and zerinus is that much more a FOOL!

Where is zerinus, that COWARD? He's probably curled up in a ball in a fetal position crying over his Book of Abraham mishap with me. Poor zerinus, what a baby or as Philo says, "child".

:lol:

Clearly, the missing snout has its own space and the written registers about it seem to respect that.

Comments anyone?

I refer to Dee Jay Nelson's reconstruction of Facsimile No. 3 wherein the jackal head is restored and the hieroglyphs are legible. See link below:

Facsimile No. 3 Reconstruction

The discovery of the missing snout on the woodcut lead plate has strengthened the above interpretation to beyond refutation.

The critics have won. The LDS apologists are the big losers and it's going to get worse for them! I see a ship taking in water and sinking. Poor Nibley is rolling in his grave.

:lol:

Merry Smithmas, everyone!

I think something like the work of Israeli archaeologist Israel Finkelstein can kick the Book of Abraham story to the curb. If Van Peters and Thompson are right there was no Abraham using domesticated camels. The work of Biblical scholars who Nibley like to cite like Albright has been superseded by scholars like Finkelstein who use both marco archaeology and micro archaeology to test sites for dating etc
