  1. The LDS Church in its Book Of Abraham Gospel Topic Essay uses the scholarship of Archaeologist Harco Willems to defend Human Sacrifice. Harco Willems was recently asked "Is the description of the human sacrifice found with in the Book of Abraham match the type of human sacrifice your research discusses in 'Crime, Cult, Capital Punishment'? " Harco was kind enough to respond, "Dear Sir, The Biblical (Book of Abraham) passage DOES NOT CONFORM TO WHAT THE MU'ALLA TEXT DESCRIBES, as attentive reading of the argumentation set forth in my article will immediately show. My article has been publicly published and therefore can be used by anyone. However, I fail to see how my work, which does not have the intention to support ANY ideology and which proposes an interpretation that is completely at loggerheads with the suggestion you make, can be stated to support your truth claims. I strongly object to any statement in your publication suggesting I do support these claims." - With best regards, Harco Willems The Footnote from the Gospel Topic Essay referenced 36. Kerry Muhlestein, Violence in the Service of Order: The Religious Framework for Sanctioned Killing in Ancient Egypt (Oxford, U.K.: Archaeopress, 2001), 37–44, 92–101; Kerry Muhlestein, “Royal Executions: Evidence Bearing on the Subject of Sanctioned Killing in the Middle Kingdom,” Journal of the Economic and Social History of the Orient 51, no. 2 (2008): 181–208; Anthony Leahy, “Death by Fire in Ancient Egypt,” Journal of the Economic and Social History of the Orient 27, no. 2 (1984): 199–206; Harco Willems, “Crime, Cult and Capital Punishment (Mo’alla Inscription 8),” Journal of Egyptian Archeology 76 (1990): 27–54.
  2. He can confirm the snout as well as it being stolen and re-acquired by the Church
  3. Maybe it was Hauglid. He's a good fit. Look at my predictions on what the Church would do that I made a few years ago. About a third of those have happened thus far and more are coming. I have lots of sources inside and again on this particular..... Simply ask Michael Rhodes. Your the newspaper guy. Go do some real journalism. You and I both know you can't pursue that story.
  4. Thanks for the personal attack. In reality you don't care about my story or knowing it as it really is. but by all means... please do continue.
  5. Source is anonymous but michael Rhodes can confirm I’m sure
  6. The plate had been stolen from the church. Snout was removed in church’s possession early in the history Michael Rhodes knew it was missing because it was sold in a yard sale to a “gentile” who framed it and put it up on a wall in his basement. A friend/member saw it while visiting and and asked to take it to be examined. FARMS had Mike R. Look at it and he determined it was the actual plate. photos were taken. They were forwarded to the head Church archivist and he noticed the accession number on the back that matched their records. A year or so later they had reacquired the plate. I don't know how it got lost or how it got returned.
  7. Someone inside the church/Joseph Smith papers project has confirmed to me that the snout was originally present and was removed
