I understand that this article is written with the best of intentions, but it is clear there are few holes in this story. First of all, if JS had access to the Urim and Thummim and even his personal genesis stone, why did he not use those to translate the Egyptian characters on the papyri and the facsimiles? Why would JS need to create an alphabet, that incidentally was incorrect translations of the Egyptian characters? Why not use the stones? Or was he really just channeling while touching the papyri?
