Maybe, maybe not. Only Gee can know for sure how he truly feels about his apologetic and testimony. What is left for us is to speculate.
Philo Sofee wrote:ANY LDS scholar is going to down play this if not outright ignore it.
Play it down on the surface, perhaps. Ignore it, how hardly. They may pretend to act like they are ignoring it and give the impression they are playing it down but how hardly will that negate their need to know: Was a snout first carved in the plate??
Philo Sofee wrote:They usually twist things to suit their ends, or ignore them in the hopes it just goes away.
Yes, this is exactly what LDS apologists do in order to defend their cause and maintain the image that their gospel is iron clad truth. Hoping it just goes away is certainly how the church deals with a great many historical problems. But problems just don't go away, they are only avoided.

You're wrong. It won't go well with him. It's another straw on a heavily laden back and I'm not talking about Camel cigarettes. It will stick in his craw and prove to be another obstacle that he can't jump over.

I absolutely agree. The INTERNET data is printed and time stamped. It's my discovery and it would serve no purpose to try and negate or deny that.

He won't. If anything he will take pleasure in the fact that he knows who I am and has even met me in Texas.
Philo Sofee wrote:they will attack you
Yes, they most certainly will. LDS apologists love to attack.
Philo Sofee wrote:your lack of credentials
Yes, that they will. BUT, they are still going to want to know if a snout was original to the plate and will credit me for being the first to ask!
Philo Sofee wrote:your lack of Mormon morals
Indeed, they love to point fingers and judge others for being immoral. In my case they can laugh about how the former amateur Book of Abraham apologist lost his testimony and became a homosexual.
Philo Sofee wrote:whatever they can drum up
Let them beat their silly apologetic drum all they want. The fact is, Anubis is not a slave, his name is written in the writing above him, and Joseph Smith had his snout hacked out.

I won't get discouraged. Let them attack me and belittle me all they want. If they do, I predict others (Egyptologists) will come to my defense and overwhelm them. I have all of Egyptology on my side and it will defend me. The gods of Egypt are also on my side.
