It seems nonlds Egyptologists are puzzled at some of the work of LDS scholars. They are ok to work unrelated to the Book of abraham .THat is what Hungarian Egyptologist Tamas Mekic told me. Tamas cites some work of Gee's in his massive book on the hypocephalus.

I dare say the only reason there are LDS Egyptologists employed at BYU is for the sole purpose of defending the Book of Abraham and by making it seem that it’s a legitimate piece of work. Well, the Book of Abraham and the Explanations of the Facsimiles are rejected by EVERY nonMormon Egyptologist in the whole world and always will be. Never, not ever, will any credible museum or credible nonMormon Egyptologist embrace the Book of Abraham. It will never happen! Period. End of story. When it comes to Gee & Muhlestein, they are not credible with their Book of Abraham apologetic circus act.

Reformed Egyptian Trivia - Neithhotep is the earliest named woman in history. A queen consort of Pharoah Narmer in Ancient Egypt, Neithhotep had her name recorded between circa 3150 and 3125 BCE.

The dynastic beginning of a unified Egyptian state long predates the biblical times of Noah and Abraham. Predynastic Egypt was an ancient civilization before Noah was ever conceived! Furthermore, Neithhotep and her contemporaries were ruling Egypt a thousand years before Joseph Smith’s so-called queen Egyptus (bogus name) discovered the Delta under water and the preposterous idea of Egypt’s founding by a Hamite king named Pharaoh. The whole story is outrageous! It’s absolute fiction.

There is universal consensus that the story of how Egypt came to be as recorded in the Book of Abraham chapter one is absolute fiction as is the assertion that a king’s name is in the label of Facsimile No. 3. The Book of Abraham is a lie told by Joseph Smith. It may safely be discarded as nonhistorical nonsense or more politely termed as modern pseudepigrapha.

There is nothing apologists or Mormon Egyptologists can do to save the Book of Abraham.
