QUOTE: “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.” -Joseph Smith, Jr., Facsimile 2, Book of Abraham, Pearl of Great Price. [source]
COMMENTARY: Joseph Smith, translating with the gift and power of God, claims that the Egyptian fertility god Min is actually Elohim. The hypocephalus was damaged in this and other areas, and Joseph or one of his associates filled in the lacunae incorrectly, so for this picture I’ve taken the liberty of using an undamaged hypocephalus rather than the one printed in the Book of Abraham. Apparently, God is a little more excited about his creative powers than the rest of the scriptures let on. On the other hand, can you imagine the orgasm you could get from an omniscient, omnipotent, perfect lover? It certainly gives new meaning to “the highest level of the celestial kingdom.” But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
