94 This still inadequately published group of manuscripts is often claimed by critics to be some sort of smoking gun proving that Joseph Smith produced the Book of Abraham by means of a process that (as they are at great pains to show) no one (including Joseph Smith) could possibly use to produce a coherent text.
