The you'll have little problem showing where my "claims have been debunked". Let's see this debunking you claim, Charly? Someone simply disagreeing with my claims does not make it a debunking.
I doubt, however, we can say that now of the pyramid tomb theory though. At least the pyramid Recovery Vault theory can point to the earth-filled, stone container in G2 and explain in a coherent and consistent manner why it's there, why it was found to contain earth and bull bones and NOT a mummy. That, right there, is the nail in the sarcophagus for the pyramid tomb theory.

The mastaba and step pyramid don't even look alike to BEGIN with. You have to invoke an evolution of one form to another to claim the evolved form is also a tomb. That is a HUGE ASSUMPTION.
Let's look at this another way, Charly. As I have said before--if you needed to build a Recovery Vault in ancient times that you wanted people to be able to see for miles around then, by necessity, the Recovery Vault would have to take the shape of a pyramid and, giving a true pyramid is a much more difficult proposition, would likely have been built in stages i.e. as a step pyramid. So you build your step pyramid Recovery Vault. What you are saying is that because each step of the stepped pyramid Recovery Vault looks like a mastaba tomb then the stepped pyramid Recovery Vault evolved from a mastaba and therefore must ALSO be a tomb. Which simply isn't true because you set out to build a very tall Recovery Vault. It is simply JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS that because each stage of a Step Pyramid is similar in shape to a mastaba that the pyramid Recovery Vault evolved from the mastaba into a tomb.
