I'm not sure what you think is so surprising about the sound of crickets here.

There is no logical basis for the requirement that before the tomb hypothesis can be challenged, another more credible hypothesis must take it's place. Rather, we simply remain uncertain about their original design intent without being able to assert with certainty what they were, or even probably were.

Who has said that the lack of any body found in any intact pyramid is proof that the pyramids weren't designed to be tombs for physical bodies? I only know that there isn't enough evidence to insist that the pyramids were designed to be tombs for physical bodies. And until there is enough evidence, other hypotheses warrant consideration.

I'm leaning toward your #4, but I disagree with your conclusion regarding the evidence. And this has been debated in many other discussions over the past few years. Maybe that's why there's crickets this time.
