Hardly.
You wrote "(The pyramid complex, with the city and royal residences, was named after the "horizon of the Cheops", probably the western horizon, the place where the sun was dying, with which the king was still directly identified.)"

WHO said it was? HOW did they determine this? You simply repeated what is assumed to be correct. That is not an answer. As far as I've found, it was assumed to be the name as early as 1932. I gather that you all buy this assumption because Akhet-Khufu includes a pyramid glyph. I've not been able to find any other reasoning whatsoever. How do you know it isn't the name of a scenic view or a destination? How do you know, beyond a doubt, that it is the name of G1? And don't tell me because so and so said so. WHY did they say so? When was it first used as a name for G1? Has it ever been found beneath, on top of, a drawing, or even a scratching of a pyramid? Lehner's fairytale of the sun between the two pyramids is just plain ridiculous.

Guess who shows up next in this thread
