In this book Dr. Larson dealt with the vexing question of whether Thomas Stuart Ferguson, who organized the New World Archaeological Foundation and devoted himself to proving the authenticity of the Book of Mormon, had eventually lost faith in that book and in Joseph Smith, the Mormon prophet.
To me this unfounded rumor — for so I considered it — seemed absolutely unbelievable, for I had over the years faithfully followed Ferguson's writings on the Book of Mormon I decided to verify or falsify this assertion by contacting Ferguson himself I first talked about my having read Cumorah — Where?
With no bitterness but with a touch of disappointment, Ferguson agreed with this statement and openly discussed with me his present skepticism about the historicity of the Book of Mormon, the lack of any Book of Mormon geography that relates to the real world, and the absence of the long-hoped-for archaeological confirmation of the Book of Mormon.
His son, Larry Ferguson, insisted that his father maintained a testimony to the Book of Mormon up until the time of his death. On page 4 of his book, Stan Larson reported: First of all, the Tanners reproduced Ferguson's study of problems in Book of Mormon geography and archaeology that he had prepared for a written symposium on the subject.
The Tanners entitled this publication Ferguson's Manuscript Unveiled. At the same time the Tanners published an article We also had a copy of his book, One Fold and One Shepherd.
A believer in the Book of Mormon had recommended it as containing the ultimate case for the authenticity of the Book of Mormon. The first indication we had that Mr. Ferguson was losing faith occurred almost a decade before Stan Larson questioned Ferguson about his skepticism regarding the Book of Mormon.
This was just after Joseph Smith's Egyptian Papyri were rediscovered. As we mentioned in the edition of our book, Mormonism: Later we heard a rumor that Ferguson had given up the Book of Abraham. This, however, hardly prepared us for his visit to our home on December 2, At that time, Mr.
Ferguson told us frankly that he had not only given up the Book of Abraham, but that he had come to the conclusion that Joseph Smith was not a prophet and that Mormonism was not true!
Ferguson told us that our work was important and that it should be subsidized.

He also told us that he had spent twenty-five years trying to prove Mormonism, but had finally come to the conclusion that all his work in this regard had been in vain. He said that his training in law taught him how to weigh evidence and that the case against Joseph Smith was absolutely devastating and could not be explained away.
Speaking of Joseph Smith's First Vision, Ferguson commented that when Cheesman and Brigham Young University Studies made available the strange accounts of the vision accounts coming from the lips of Joseph Smith that had been suppressed by the church for about years they completely destroyed his faith in Mormonism.
He felt that instead of helping the cause, these contradictory accounts caused serious confusion. He stated that the Mormon scholars had shot the bird, plucked out its feathers and left it "dead and naked on the ground.

The Ancient Egyptians called their writing the "language of the gods.". Unlike hieroglyphics or hieratic this was in common use.
Like hieratic writing, it was written on papyrus, the earliest form of paper which was made from papyrus reeds. Hieroglyphic writing Hieroglyphics were carved or painted by the priests and scribes.
At first Egyptian hieroglyphics were simply pictures. The hieroglyphics used pictures to represent both sounds and words.
For example, the eye symbol could literally mean "eye" or it could mean the letter "I". A picture of an arm might mean "arm" or it might mean "strength." Hieroglyphs could also be written in any order, from left to right or up to down or the opposite.
