On Mind Reading

It is a somewhat surreal experience to see someone try to read one's mind about why one wrote the thing one has. And some of these same people wonder why I do not believe them when they try to read Joseph Smith's mind. They wish to tell us exactly what Joseph Smith was thinking when translating the Book of Abraham by using documents that we do not know that Joseph Smith wrote and which are anything but self-explanatory. I'm sorry; that simply is not scholarship.
