This may top it.

Looks to me like an unqualified assertion. Let’s see you justify it. You have CCTV footage?
Let’s see you justify your “certainty” about what Belzoni would have done in counterfactual circumstances. Is this part of your EVIDENCE? Let’s see your EVIDENCE that the symbolism claimed was generally recognised when the pyramid was built.
See how SHOUTY this is? It means that I’m right and you’re wrong.

Same place all the others are. How many mummies of Old Kingdom date have survived? Just in the interests of realism.

Now what (you allege) charly would do in counterfactual circumstances is part of the EVIDENCE. Bit rich your complaining about folklore being called folklore.

. . . and here we have your old trick of taking your crock to another board, ignoring the rebuttals received on the preceding one:
Your “extension”, Creighton, is otherwise known as the fallacy of composition.
