Zahi's 1995 study collected its own data samples of mortar containing tiny clumpt of carbon and also included the Cayce data. The Cayce data dated samples hundreds of years earlier than the 1995 sample data and Zahi didn't offer one word to address why the 2 data sets were different. He also stated that half the samples were omitted from the analysis and he never offered any explanation for omitting them. Also, several samples dated far earlier (one sample dated to something like 5000 BC) and they were all discarded as outliers. Zahi presumed all the mortar samples were homogenous (ie, from the same time period) and never considered that the samples might be multimodal due to one or more restoration projects centuries or millennia after the original construction. Samples were taken from the surface instead of deep within the mortar thereby contaminating the samples with modern carbon from ambient sources.
The list of logical flaws in the '95 study goes on and on.
In my opinion.

If I carve "Origyptian" into the cement footing of the Golden Gate Bridge, does that mean Americologists from the 42nd century AD will conclude that a King Origyptian commissioned the construction of that bridge?

Absolutely a distinct possibility. Adaption (not adoption).
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
