I can't really add anything to the statement but can put it in terms anyone can understand.
Egyptology is the look-see science. Just look at the incoherent ramblings of everything they said and you can see they were highly superstitious. Just look and see Imhotep was called a "priest" and you see he was just as superstitious as everyone else if he actually even existed. Look and see how primitive and superstitious these people were and you'll see they could have made nothing as large as G1 without ramps (if they built it at all). Just look and see the nature of these ruins and you'll know infrared or ultraviolet imaging is a waste of precious resources and there are no chemicals signatures anywhere of relevance.
This is what "science" does is understand things on their face. It judges the book of nature by its cover and all are expected to kowtow to each of its pronouncements and explanations. Egyptology is the study of assumptions and it is kept intact through semantics and insult. Ignoring facts ands logic are part and parcel of maintaining failed assumptions.
The great thing about "look-see science" is you don't need to be distracted by testing or the results of testing. One can immerse himself in the extrapolations of the unknown or unknowable. Without pesky facts getting in the way all things are possible except the negation of your assumptions.
