I wouldn't go this far but it's high time Egyptology's apologists wake up and demand science.

It's time to look at the tiny amount of evidence already gathered and seeing it afresh so that we can determine what new evidence need be gathered first. If Egyptology can't do this then I would hope the Egyptian government would show the wisdom to remove the Egyptologists and put actual scientists in charge.

This continual citing of sources and older versions of the same assumptions is very tiresome.

And this is exactly why Lehner said the great pyramids must be studied with ones back turned to them last month. This is exactly why they failed miserably in using modern science and modern knowledge to understand the pyramid and its nature. This is exactly why after not getting any reasonable Egyptological hypotheses about the nature of the thermal anomaly I predicted, they merely dropped the subject like a hot potato.

How anyone can continue to support Egyptology and their 12th century methodology is beyond me.

Indeed! We are each treading the same ground and talking past one another because a conversation can't be founded in reality when there is no data. They simply never needed data because they used et als and the status quo.

The problem is that most individuals don't have the time to actually study many subjects. Then when one gets interested in pyramids they can get sucked in by Egyptology. I, myself, nearly went that way when my budding theory hit its first apparent roadblock.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
