That is a custom, not a ritual.

Ditto. Unless they do it at a certain time, every time, then it would be part of a ritual, not the ritual itself.
> Ritual defines our humanity
You seem to be unaware of what a 'ritual' is. Suggest you learn the definition.
Is this where I get to call you.... lazy, uneducated, lacking knowledge ie; stupid.

Therefore you apply this "constant" to the pyramid builders even though there is no reason to do so.

That is your conclusion, which really is nothing more than a mimic of the status quo.

I see pyramids, structures, that have no signs of ritual whatsoever.

It is illogical to assign any belief to the pyramid builders. There is nothing to show what they believed.
Your imagination doesn't count as evidence.

What kind of hat did you pull that out of? I said nothing that even hinted at forgery. Are you not aware that the hieroglyphs preceded the demotic script? Hieroglyphs are much older.
