It's interesting to note that the bit about king Onitis and princess Katumin mentioned above was simply more of the same kind of stuff (plenty of it) that we see in the making of the Book of Mormon. Lots of royal names, ages, and dates. Frankly, I don't believe the Book of Mormon anymore than I do the bit about Onitas and Katumin! It's pure fiction!
It seems Mormons today are grappling on what do with historical content such as the garden of Eden and how long man has been on the earth compared to the chronological data and the calendar of the bible. Even the Mormon temple ceremony states that those things about Adam and Eve are figurative so many Mormons can leave it at that and don't have to take it literal. But Joseph Smith took Adam and Eve and bible stories quite literally. Smith was a literalist unless he said otherwise and then he would point out the symbolism or what it represented. Smith definitely believed in the bible calendar of 4,000 years from Adam to Christ and D&C 77 punctuates that belief.
Now, for a matter of pure entertainment, let's confirm that Smith took the bible literally, the 4,000 years between Adam and Christ, the long lifespan of Adam, and MOST IMPORTANTLY the Making of Egypt outright dismisses what modern Egyptology has positively confirmed about Predynastic and Early Dynastic Egypt. In other words, Mormonsism is an enemy to Egyptology just as John Gee and Kerry Muhlestein have become APOSTATE Egyptologists! They must recant or be defrocked!
Now consider the following REVELATIONS, straight from the loony head of Joseph Smith who confirms the 1,656 years of the early patriarchs prior to the flood and the ridiculous long life spans of the early patriarchs:
