"Jessop discussed the academic response to the Brewer artifacts, namely that of three professors at BYU and the University of Utah who had considered the case, two had decided it was a complete fraud. The third believed there was a possibility that the cave and the plates were what John Brewer claimed they were.
One “gold” plate from the cave had been tested to reveal its age and metallurgy, and was found to be a very recent creation made of brass similar in chemical composition to the metal found in bullet casings."
“I’m a born skeptic myself, so I approach this whole thing with an attitude of ‘Oh, I’m not too sure about that,’” Jessop said. “But the more I studied, the more I saw that, ‘How can you refute it now, when we have actual scientific testing done, what can you say?’ Now, granted, it would help a lot if we could find the cave, if we could find the bodies, and then we’ll know for positive sure. What to say to the skeptics? ‘Do your research.’”
It would help a lot if we could find the cave, if we could find the bodies?
But then there is this: "Jessop cited a meeting between Brewer and LDS general authorities, including Apostle Mark E. Peterson, from which Jessop reported they verified Brewer’s claims and started plans to have the cave excavated by archaeologists working for BYU" Hell, if Mark E. Peterson says it's real, I'm convinced.

LOL. Yes. I had trouble reading past that. In fact, when I read the name my brain automatically said, "surely this is parody"; but alas, no, they are being serious.
This is an example of things that get me about exmos who have to deal with living behind the Mo curtain. They are forced to accept things such as people being named "Utahna" as just a simple fact of everyday life.
