Certain denizens of the LDS apostate intellectual slums of the internet claim that my friend John Gee, a professor at Brigham Young University, lacks all credibility in professional Egyptological circles. (This accusation, by the way, comes from people with no advanced degrees in any relevant field, no academic positions, and no peer-reviewed publications of their own. These are mere hacks and cranks who spend their days ranting against Mormonism on internet bulletin boards.)
Some of you may have noticed that I really don’t like it when my friends are slandered by anti-Mormons and apostates. So, to hopefully silence this idiocy and slander of my friend, I forthwith present to you John Gee’s non-LDS-related Egyptological publications. Notice that he has published 30 articles in the past decade or so, all in peer reviewed technical Egyptological journals and books. He has also served as editor for the Journal of the Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities for three years (2008-2010). (This list does not count reviews and professional presentations at Egyptological conferences, which would greatly expand it.) And this is a man the anti-Mormons and apostates claim has no credibility in professional Egyptological circles? Really? These people are simply delusional.
Here’s Gee’s non-LDS Egyptological publications.
