          SMITH:  Each Egyptian character means this:

the, this  

 [11]    Now, this priest had offered upon this altar three virgins, at one time, who were the daughters of Onitah, one of the royal descent directly from the loins of Ham., These virgins were offered up be cause of their virtue; they would not bow down to worship gods of wood or of stone, therefore they were killed upon this altar, and it was done after the manner of the Egyptians.

No. of English Characters



 [12]   And it came to pass that the priests laid violence upon me, that they might slay me also,' as they did those virgins' upon this altar, and that you may have a knowledge of this altar, I will refer you to the representation at the commencement of this record.



 [13]    It was made after the form of a bedstead, such as was had among the Chaldeans,' and it stood before the gods of Elkenah, Libnah, Mahmackrah, Korash, and also a god like unto that of Pharaoh, king of Egypt. That you may have an understanding of these gods, I have given you the fashion of them in the figures at the beginning, which manner of the figures is called by the Chaldeans Rahleenos, which signifies hieroglyphics.



 [15]    And as they lifted up their hands upon me, that they might offer me up and take away my life, behold, I lifted up my voice unto my God, and the Lord hearkened and heard, and he filled me with the vision of the Almighty, and the angel of his presence stood by me,' and immediately unloosed my bands.

Demotic is a cursive script and reflects differences in handwriting; these differences, in turn, reflect different types of texts  such as private letters, economic and legal documents, administrative documents, religious, literary and scientific texts, etc.

This, I decided, was the archeological equivalent of the scene from Lassie in which the dog barks once and Jimmy is given to understand that the leg of a six-year-old girl named Sally has been trapped under a fallen tree 30 yards north of the falls on Coldwater Creek near the old mine shaft and oh, by the way, she’s diabetic too, so bring some insulin.” ~ Quote from Epoch Times

 The Conclusion

"Many of the [Jos. Smith's] explanations of the hypocephalus illustrated in Facsimile 2 are supported by our present understanding of ancient Egyptian religion, and are in fact especially typical of Late Egyptian religious writings. One or two could conceivably be dismissed as mere chance or lucky guessing, but the many correct interp[r]etations taken together are impossible to ignore. It is clear that Joseph Smith knew what he was talking about.

This only reaffirms what every honest person can learn in earnest prayer, that Jos. Smith received these things from God, even as he claimed.  Prof Rhodes' home page here.

How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs
A Step-by-Step Guide to Teach Yourself

  In 2013, at a eulogy for Nelson Mandela,
there was an imposter sign language translator
on the podium to convey the speeches to the
deaf community.

Every word was the SAME sign!


Jean François Champollion

In 1822 Jean François Champollion, using the ROSETTA STONE,   made the decisive discovery concerning the decipherment of the hieroglyphs and became the founder of Egyptology ...

... At the same time, Joseph Smith,
 using a SEE

Jos. Smith

The Rosetta Stone is an ancient Egyptian stela inscribed with a decree issued at Memphis in 196 BC on behalf of King Ptolemy V.
The decree appears in three scripts: the upper text is ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, the middle portion Demotic script, and the lowest ancient Greek. Because it presents essentially the same text in all three scripts it provided the key to the modern understanding of Egyptian hieroglyphs.

God's Debris
by  'DILBERT'  Scott Adams



It's a Treasure! ...and  it's FREE
God's Debris:
Imagine that you meet a very old man who — you eventually realize — knows everything. Imagine that he explains for you the great mysteries of life — quantum physics, evolution, god, gravity, light, psychic phenomena, and probability —  in a way so simple, so novel, and so compelling that it all fits together and makes perfect sense.

What does it feel like to suddenly understand everything? God's Debris isn’t the final answer to the Big Questions -- it might be the most compelling vision of reality you will ever read.... Still, God's Debris is emphatically not for everyone. Although there’s no sex or violence... (cont)...

Tarring and feathering of Joseph Smith

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) predates both Christianity and Islam and does not pertain to any specific religion, yet today's Islamic societies are the primary setting of this human rights crime. The practice of mutilation is thought to have arisen out of ancient Egypt...
