Yes I know, I've read it. Tell me something I don't know. Being common "knowledge" (according to you) doesn't make it fact.
Are you going to tell us why no one has cut granite with copper, and how they would drag the sarcophagus up a ramp? I won't even ask how they placed 50 ton stones in the king's chamber, let's keep it simple for now.
Or are you going to ignore the engineering problems and try to convince us they are solved by PT's?

You ignore the problems.
You also did not point out the many ramps found in the link you posted.

Houdin is an electrical engineer, not a structural engineer. Do you know the difference? Mark Lehner is... well..... nothing. Hawass is a joke.
The "20 years" has appeared in every book on AE since books were in print. You are mistaken if you do not realize Egyptologists have merely tried to justify the 20 years.

First off, you presume those of us who do not believe Egyptology are "uneducated masses". Snobbery will get you nowhere on this board. Neither will arrogance.

Von Daniken may be relevant to your class, but he is not relevant here. Propaganda.
Have they mentioned 'critical thinking' in your class? It's probably not relevant to Egyptology.
