Someday, the pope may miraculously divide the Red Sea or Scientology will take over the world and force everyone to submit to their will. Someday, Book of Mormon Jesus may appear again and recover his lost sheep. All of this, of course, are fantasies.
You know, if I was to take up Chinese on my own without the aid of a legitimate source to learn what I was doing, I would be in a world of hurt. However, I’m sure that I could probably look at some Chinese art surrounded by texts and provide explanations guesses and might even be right about something. Even a monkey on a typewriter will manage to type a real word if he types long enough.

Its the same overconfidence people will have when Christ will show up and burn them, overconfidence that a God that was slain could not be resurrected and actually be in control of things, and how long he actually allows people like these to persist. I think it can be done, and I have faith that it can be done, because I've cracked some key pieces of it, notwithstanding both your rejection of it, and the apologists' rejection of it. Notwisthstanding my initial guess on the name of pharoah was wrong.
I’m quite sure that Christ is not going to show up and burn me. In fact, I’m positive that will not happen. I refuse to be frightened or intimidated by another man’s God. You know, this man Jesus died some 2,000 years ago and he will continue to remain in that state -- tomorrow, next year, and into the next century.
You may continue to try and crack the Book of Abraham until you are done trying. You get to decide when you’re finished.

It is precisely that unexpected way that I have faith in, because I've seen enough to justify the belief that it is only a matter of time that this will be cracked. Just answer what you plan to do in that case because you are so certain of yourself that it is impossible?
You rely on faith that you will someday crack it. I rely on my knowledge that you have not cracked anything and what you want to crack is not crackable.
I’m 100% sure having perfect knowledge.
