Mormonism Disproved Again!: Facsimile 2,The Hypocephalus


A long time ago, in a place not too far away…. TRUTH WARS Facsimile II – THE HYPOCEPHALUS Although the LDS Empire was dealt a severe blow by the revelation that Facsimile I came from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the dark side remains and has kept this truth hidden from the members of the LDS Empire. Even those who witnessed this truth were blinded from it by the dark side’s presence in their feelings. A second facsimile also wields power over the innocent. The freedom fighters, led by Saint Luke, seek to destroy it…. Luke: Hey U2, The facsimile is coming into view now… Luke: It appears to be beaming some sort of energy field toward Earth…can you identify it? U2: Sensors detect an Anti-Logic ray. U2: It’s targeting the state of Utah. Luke: Alright U2, send me what you’ve got on this facsimile…we need to take it out. U2: Uno, Dos, Tres, Catorce! Narrator: Here is Facsimile 2, as it appeared in the Times and Seasons magazine… and here is a rough preliminary sketch of the hypocephalus, found in the Kirtland Egyptian Papers. Take note that there were large areas missing from the hypocephalus, areas which were filled in by Joseph Smith or his scribes prior to publishing…Let’s go in for a closer look. Narrator: The first figure, according to Joseph Smith, is: Joseph Smith: “Kolob, signifying the first creation, nearest to the celestial, or the residence of God.” Narrator: But according to Mormon apologist and Egyptologist, Michael Rhodes: Michael Rhodes: “The god is sitting at the center of the hypocephalus, which represents the world…” “This seated figure represents god as the creator, either Amon-Re or Khnum.” Narrator: Rhodes also acknowledges that the two headed god is usually depicted with four ram’s heads. But he fails to mention that the current head was incorrectly placed off of the body. In figure 2, we see the inspiration for the two headed god used on figure 1. Joseph Smith provides the following interpretation: Smith: “Stands next to Kolob, called by the Egyptians Oliblish, which is the next grand governing creation near to the celestial or the place where God resides.” Narrator: But Rhodes points out: Rhodes: “This is Amon-Re, the chief god of the Egyptian pantheon… This is clearly the god mentioned in chapter 162 of the Book of the Dead.” For figure 5, Smith’s interpretation goes way off the mark! Smith: “Is called in Egyptian Enish-go-on-dosh; this is one of the governing planets also…” Narrator: But as Rhodes points out… Rhodes: “This is the cow Ihet mentioned in chapter 162 of the Book of the Dead, which should be drawn on a piece of new papyrus to make a hypocephalus.” Figure 7, however, is much more revealing. Smith claimed that it… Smith: “Represents God sitting upon his throne, revealing through the heavens the grand Key-words of the Priesthood;” “as, also, the sign of the Holy Ghost unto Abraham, in the form of a dove.” Narrator: Rhodes provides the correct interpretation… Rhodes: “A seated ithyphallic god with a hawk’s tail…this is a form of Min, the god of the regenerative, procreative forces of nature…” Narrator: Ithyphallic means having an erect penis, with which Min, an Egyptian god who had sex with his own mother, is often depicted. The church leadership actually removed the penis from the 1878 edition of the Pearl of Great Price… but restored it a year later. Rhodes then corrects what Smith viewed as the Holy Ghost in the form of a dove. Rhodes: “This figure represents Nehebka, a snake god and one of the judges of the dead in the 25th chapter of the Book of the Dead.” Narrator: The original figure was faded, but examples of Nehebka are clearly recognizable in other hypocephali, such as the Leydon Hypocephalus, shown here… and the Paris Hypocephalus, shown here. Basically, Smith picked an incestuous, sex god to represent the God of Abraham and a snake god to represent the Holy Ghost. Narrator: (sarcastic) Simply brilliant! Narrator: Figures 12 through 15, Rhodes points out, are… Rhodes: “hieratic, not hieroglyphic, and are inverted, or upside down, to the rest of the text. In fact, they are a fairly accurate copy of lines 2, 3, and 4 of the Joseph Smith Papyrus XI, which contains a portion of the Book of Breathings.” Narrator: Rhodes suggests that these and other additions to the hypocephalus were made for aesthetic purposes. But why copy from the Book of Breathings and not the parts of the papyrus that allegedly contained the writings of Abraham? Shouldn’t Smith also have known that the characters were upside down when they were copied? It should be obvious that Facsimile 2 is nothing but a typical hypocephalus, used in Egyptian burials to make the deceased divine. It clearly has nothing to do with Abraham, the God of Abraham, or the Book of Abraham, as Joseph Smith and the Mormons claim. Luke: Well this is going to be easier than shooting womp rats in a barrel! Luke: U2, arm the Veritas Torpedoes. We’re going in.Luke: YoooHoooo!

  1. Blueskunk brings a fantastic point: nobody could translate egyptian at that time. This hypocephalus was (as far as anybody knows) the first example in America for 100 years. So how did Smith know how to fill in all the missing 20% with such accuracy? I understand the discrepancies, but critis are unfair to miss the point that Smith filled in 20% of the hypocephalus without anything to reference AND got it right.

  2. ikesteroma, did you even watch the video? Smith filled in the 20% with heiratic text from the Book of Breathings, and in doing so, he transposed the characters upside down. The characters he put on the outside ring were gibberish. The only area you can say he got "right" was the boat scene, and that could easily have come from a fragment of the same hypocephalus or copied from another hypocephalus among the several mummies in Smith's possession.

  3. You missed the point that it was a hypocephalus, which only contains depictions of pagan Egyptian gods, which have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with Abraham, or the God of Abraham!

  4. Strong words coming from a dedicated Mormon…how about all of the ex-Mormons that work against the church? I guess anyone who disagrees with you is a nut bag, right?
    Why can't you confront the obvious fact that Facsimile 2 is a hypocephalus, and has nothing to do with Abraham? Joseph Smith is a provable fraud.

  5. marcopolo, if you are going to insult my intelligence, at least learn how to spell…"root for".
    Secondly, I already have proved him wrong…just because you ignore the proof doesn't make it go away. Maybe you should open your eyes, uncover your ears, and stop your little tantrums. You can't dispute the proof, so you just resort to name calling…pathetic.

  6. Are you really that far gone in denial. If you actually watched the video, you'd see my references at the end. My copy of Facsimile 2 came from the LDS website, as did Joseph Smith's statements. The correct interpretations of the figures came from Michael Rhodes, a Mormon Egyptologist. The copies of the other hypocephali can be found all over, as they are on display in many museums. So, name one specific piece of evidence that you dispute as legitimate…good luck with that.

  7. Can you ever answer a question without posing another question? It is not Mormon Egyptologist Michael Rhodes' personal opinion on the interpretation of the hypocephalus, it is the correct interpretation based on a broad collection of evidence and corroborated by every other Egyptologist out there. Have you ever heard of the Rosetta Stone? Why is it that only Mormon prophets provide a different interpretation…because they are frauds!
    Your name is fitting…you must be wearing a blind fold.

  8. Such arrogance, yet you don't even know the difference between hieroglyphics and hieratic text. Hieroglyphics by themselves may be hard to interpret, but hieratic text has a specific translation. When you have them paired together, it puts the hieroglyphics into a specific context with an intended interpretation. In this case, we have both together, so only one translation for the hieratic text and one interpretation of the hieroglyphics is correct. Nice try though.

  9. Now you're just messing with me…no one can be that devoid of rational thought. Are you not even going to acknowledge that your claims only applied to hieroglyphics and not hieratic text? Thanks for the concern, but responses like yours make me laugh, so I'm usually in a pretty good mood.

  10. You are so blind that you think I have to have been hurt by your church to want to destroy it, or that I have hateful motives. You are confounded by the idea that someone genuinely wants to save you out of the kindness of their heart…you thought that that was what you were doing in the Mormon church, didn't you?
    I have a great life with a beautiful wife and son, a great family that loves me, a successful career, and a great relationship with the one true God. And I'm Catholic…go figure.

  11. I'm sorry that you can't grasp the situation, but since you can't accept the physical proof I've presented in my videos, I shouldn't be surprised. Good luck with your life of ignorant bliss…at least you're happy now…

  12. Thanks for sharing this. I had a friend that almost became a member of this evil Church. This video has had him asking questions and he not attending the church anymore.

    You are truly doing the lords work.

  13. Thanks for the kudos…it is always rewarding to hear that my message has had a positive affect on someone's life.
    God bless you and your friend.

  14. @razorflown2 Please watch the language…I do have another video which provides the full interpretation of Facs 2 without the Star Wars sideshow…see Facsimile 2 Review

  15. What a lame video. The Church of Jesus Christ is not evil. Apostate Christianity is blinded by the craftiness of men and Satan himself. Feel sorry for you guys

  16. @crxracer805 1+1=2, it's as simple as that…no craftiness needed, the facts are in front of you. It is Mormons who have to jump through hoops to justify their beliefs…beliefs that even contradict what the Book of Mormon says (see my website for details).

  17. very well done! it is amazing how i show this vid to my mormon friends and still make up tons of excuses. thank you

  18. @MALDITTOROKKERO It's hard to believe how many crazy theories they'll come up with to maintain their belief in Joseph Smith.

  19. @crxracer805
    If the "truth" is a lie….or even a partial lie, then it is evil.
    After all, the "Devil" that is portrayed in the LDS Temples answers the question, "What do you preach?" The Devil's answer: "The philosophies of men mingled with Scripture".
    So, the Star Wars "motif" is "about right". Knock out the partial lies that make the whole thing rotten. After all, that is what Satan teaches: truth mingled with nonsense.

  20. @crxracer805 Was Smith a prophet? He was not. This is all we need to know. No craftiness, just common sense..

  21. @bossendenwoodconvict Uh duh, yes Joseph Smith was a true prophet. How do we really know though? Well the Bible states that we can know a true prophet by their fruits. Well, what was the fruit of Moses to show that he was a true prophet? It's obvious that it was the 10 commandments that were given to him. What was the fruit of Joseph? It was the Book of Mormon, an ancient book of scripture that he translated. And look at where the Church is at today. Look at how Mormons live in righteousness

  22. @crxracer805 The fruit of Joseph is indeed the B.O.M. It is false. Jehova's witnesses live righteously too? Are they the true church?

  23. @bossendenwoodconvict You haven't even read the BOM so you can't know for yourself that its false. You only listen to what other people tell you or what you find online which is false

  24. @crxracer805 Jesus praised those who believed in Him WITHOUT seeing His resurrected body. But know one would believe Jesus was resurrected if they walked into His tomb after 3 days and His body was still there. The point, obviously, is that faith is believing in something without having to see proof of it; faith is not believing in something that has been proven wrong…that's just stupidity.

  25. @crxracer805 And what part of reading the Book of Mormon will make it true? Just because your heart burns when you read it doesn't make it true…otherwise, Mexican food has some sort of religious truth to it!

  26. @bossendenwoodconvict Because if you have read the BOM you wouldn't be pursuing the Church. And if you have read it, you didn't read it with faith, real intent and a sincere heart

  27. @crxracer805 The psycology of this is obvious: If a person doesn't believe as the mormons do they are insincere!! What do you say to Born Againers or Muslims who say because mormons don't believe them they are insincere?
    Are you studying the above video with faith, real intent and a sincere heart? OR have you no intent to understand the truth it is telling you?

  28. @bossendenwoodconvict That whole thing in the video is a fabrication. It makes something that is true seem like it's false. Honestly I don't really care if people think they have disproved The Church of Jesus Christ, I know what I believe and I know what's true and I'm happy with it

  29. @StormunMormon How is valid criticism of your religion preventing you from freely practicing your religion??? You all want immunity from legitimate attacks…grow up and respond to the criticism, if you can…I'll save you some time and trouble though, because you don't have a leg to stand on.

  30. @mrCTR2012 Yes, I did the animation myself…a little hobby of mine. I'm assuming sarcasm in you statement right now, which may be a bad assumption. I suggest you watch the "Facsimile 2 Review…" video, which evaluates the entire hypocephalus without the star wars sideshow.

  31. @mrCTR2012 Good to hear that you're willing to look into it. My Facs 3 video has a link to Michael Rhodes' translation of the extant papyrus and the judgement scene in the description below the video. He's the Mormon Egyptologist I reference for both this video and the Facs 3 video. Hope the info helps.

  32. @eNRGy27 Take it easy…I couldn't use the actual Star Wars music and I'm a lousy piano player…there is a mute button for that part 😉

  33. to be a mormon you must be insane. i get if you were raised in the church but to convert is insane. some guy from rochester ny is a propeht? hahahah! talk about suckers.

  34. Where in the Bible does it say there will be new prophets? Nowhere. That’s like me saying that frogs can fly because I believe they can, not because I have any kind of factual evidence. Like I said before, Joseph Smith and Brigham Young and whatever other authoritative figures in the LDS church add to the the Bible or other doctrinal books to fit their own agenda, or the new generation.

    The Bible states that it’s through faith alone in Christ alone that we are saved.

  35. @metallicarox80s The BOM has been changed over 4000 times.

    I thought this was God's words. Why would you need to change texts that were spoked of God.

    Jesus was the last.

    I will become LDS if Hill Cumorah is dug up in Palmyra, and you find 1 spear head.

    I know it wont happen, becos there is nothing there !!

  36. @metallicarox80s The BOM has changed 4000 times over the last century or so, and we are supposed to believe that its the word of God… all of it.

    The BOM is a copy of the KJV Bible, just a few additions of words, which i may also add, are not of the Smith era

  37. @metallicarox80s HAHAHAHA, funny you didnt talk about Hill Cumorah, just typical of LDS , and missionary's, answer a Q with a Q .

    Go ask Monson to dig up Hill Cumorah, and find 1 spear head, or bone fragment.

    Will he? I think not, the LDS church will crumble, in the fact that Smith said 230,000 ( or was it 2 million) people died there, and no evidence of it.

  38. @metallicarox80s You try to twist Ephesians to make it look like its a benefit for the LDS. Do not compare the words of Acts 1 to make it as tho Joseph Smith is anywhere near as high as any prophet.

    Smith is a con-man, who fleeced his flock with a bank scam, loved 14 yr old girls, cant translate, and went to court as a " glass looker .
    Its a sin for anyone who is in the LDS church to read from the new testament. I know 3 ex-mormons who told me they were not allowed to read it.

    "

  39. 2 peter 2 ; 1… Describes how false prophets like Smith will arise.

    But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them–bringing swift destruction on themselves

  40. Jeremiah 23;32 …….

    Indeed, I am against those who prophesy false dreams," declares the LORD. "They tell them and lead my people astray with their reckless lies, yet I did not send or appoint them. They do not benefit these people in the least," declares the LORD.

    Smith is a fraud. Prophets DO NOT SHOOT BACK !

  41. Another warning for the LDS church and its members…….

    Ezekiel 13;2
    Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. Say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination: 'Hear the word of the LORD!

  42. "…He gave His life to atone for the sins of all mankind. His was a great vicarious gift in behalf of all who would ever live upon the earth.
    We solemnly testify that His life, which is central to all human history, neither began in Bethlehem nor concluded on Calvary. He was the Firstborn of the Father, the Only Begotten Son in the flesh, the Redeemer of the world." THE LIVING CHRIST
    THE TESTIMONY OF THE APOSTLES
    THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS

  43. All of your other statements aside, Mormons not being allowed to read the New Testament is patently false. The NT (KJV) is required reading by the LDS church, and makes up a substantial portion of their standard teaching block. Either you or your ex-mormon "sources" are bearing false witness, and that is a sin according to just about every faith. It also casts doubt upon everything else you have said, regardless of its historical basis.

  44. Also, I take issue with the "Prophets DO NOT SHOOT BACK !" comment. Moses did. He killed a dude who was just doing his job.

  45. The facsimiles are the biggest proof that Joseph Smith was a fraud.
    In the fiction Joseph passed on as written by Abraham, Joseph gave translations for the Egyptian wording on the Facsimiles. The error is the most obvious in the Throne Room Scene, where he got the gender wrong and grossly mis-translated the wording above the characters.
    He was a fraud, and no amount of explanation can fix that.

  46. How do members justify the mis-translations of the text above the characters' heads in the Throne Room Scene. And what about the obvious gender mistakes? And what about the fact that that very scene shows up in hundreds of museum artifacts with a completely different explanation that has nothing to do with Abraham?

  47. WRONG!!! Jesus said the and the Law and Prophets were UNTIL John! Hebrew 1 clearly shows God used to speak by prophets and now thru his SON who is Eternal HIGH PRIEST and we have DIRECT access to the THRONE of GRACE! no middlemen (priest/prophet) Just read Jesus parable of the evil vinepressers in Mattew. ..God/landownerr…servants/prophets…Son/Jesus …who will come next?….not more servants but God/landowner himself!

  48. So Joseph was a con man… Boring.. Look at how many women he tricked into being his wives though! Though a liar, he was mackin'

  49. Great video, showing Joseph Smith, founder of Mormonism, did not know what he was talking about as he wrote his fable Pearl of Great Price which was part of a trilogy of fables written by Smith, which included the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, written mostly by Smith but a few other wrote some sections, and the Pearl of Great Price.

  50. If mormonism was disproved. Then howcome their still saying it. What else. OH YA now I remember. ZELPHS MOUND. Something to the effect of radial carbon 14 data testing dating to about 250 A.D.

  51. Would you explain further on what you mean. If I am not mistaken your not saying mormonism is a fraud but the bible is valid. But rather you don't believe in anything to do with judeo-christian. Could you explain further on this.

  52. Have yet to have read the bible. Although I know alot spiritually. Just recently have been trying to discern rather or not that matter cannot be created or destroyed. Don't understand the statement mormonism and muslims just are people who wanted to be radical. If I am not mistaken the jews rejected it. So it was given to what is known as mormonism. Only the mormon church has the authority.

  53. 1) Paul talking to the "seasoned Christians"…Eph 2: 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

  54. 2) 16 “The law and the prophets were until John….Heb 1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son…Jesus parable wicked vinedressers (Matt 21:33) prophets, Son and then God not more prophets.

  55. 3) Eph 2:20 says the household of God WAS built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets. >Acts 4:7 But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift….11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers..GRACE WAS GIVEN. >Acts 13…the early church was NEVER Lead by a Prophet….Rev 11 The Bible calls them 2 witnesses? are you adding to the Bible?.. Maybe you should be the one who reads.

  56. Come on guys, we have freedom of religion. Stop trying to disprove a religion just because you don't like it. If you're going to try to do it, do it to them all, not just one

  57. Andrew you're saying mORMONISM is fiction? Well, since both are disproved. . .(they cancel out, Boom! Boom!, two headshots!
