Exactly.

The problem is Egyptologists just explain everything in terms of trial and error performed by people just exactly like us but with no metaphysics at all, no scientific theory at all, and no understanding of their environment whatsoever. According to Egyptologists a bunch of wholly ignorant people who believed everything was controlled by forces of magic and religion tried one technique after another before they found a means to build complex shapes and raise mountains. Never mind that these techniques aren't understood or explained by us because they obviously possessed some magical technology that accounts for everything we can't explain. The pyramid exists therefore Khufu had the knowledge and means to build it. What makes this wholly unremarkable is that they started with the assumption that Khufu had the knowledge and means to build it. It doesn't matter to Egyptologists how this knowledge was invented or why it was applied because they started with all the answers.

Egyptologists are not disturbed that no metaphysics and no words of science exist because the pyramid does and they mustta had the means to do it and that means mustta been ramps because they were so highly ignorant and so incapable that ramps were the only technology available. Everything always makes perfect sense to those who believe from the outset.

The FACT that it's been shown other means exist and the FACT that recent testing has disproven internal ramps means nothing to them. It's not only been PROVEN other means exist but it's been shown that these means are actually in evidence and ramps are not. But they can't back off any of their beliefs without endangering them all and therefore the pyramids are tombs built by superstitious people using ramps and they didn't need no stinkin' metaphysics because they had superstition to make them strong enough to use a wholly unevidenced means of dragging stones.

It might not make sense to us but then we don't turn our backs to the pyramid to try to reverse engineer it and don't wait for the latest word from linguists about engineering. We don't assume that all those tests that Egyptologists have failed to perform would return no meaningful results. We don't just look at anomalies and write them off as a manifestation of ancient superstition rather than what they actually are; a manifestation of our own ignorance. We don't ignore the evidence that doesn't support our hypotheses. I always thought Egyptology would have to be proven wrong while resisting it the whole way to become a laughing stock. Now I wonder. No matter how wrong they are shown to be it has no effect on their beliefs and little on their tactics to suppress dissent. They remain afraid to do the testing that must be done to answer the real questions. These questions don't concern the beliefs of ancient stinky footed bumpkin but rather they concern the determination of what knowledge was needed to build the pyramids.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
