Surely there are some scientists operating the Egyptian government. Considering that there are potential military and religious advantages to being first to understand this it seems the Egyptian government would necessarily desire to study this. It's hard for me to believe any modern government can function with the precepts of religion elevated to the determination of scientific questions.
I'm not denying the possibility that religion trumps science in this instance but then I have trouble believing religion and belief built the pyramids and it's unlikely religion and belief can stop science indefinitely. Surely they are at least considering studying the pyramids somewhere in Egypt. It would seem that no country would want to be perceived as anti-science and technologically backward. Religion is great but it doesn't work for experiment. I'm sure God has better things to do than wait around for muon scans to arise from need, stones, and sand.
If you're right then perhaps we shouldn't be engaging the apologists. It gulls me to see their pronouncements that there is no doubt that stinky footed bumpkins dragged tombs up ramps. While these beliefs might be derived from pods that get them while they're sleeping it seems less likely they have religious motives.
God only knows. I sure don't.
