It certainly isn't you.
It is the conjecture and speculation of Egyptologists who hold that they could only have used ramps because there are no known wheels in the Cairo Museum. It is Egyptology who believes in the power of superstitious beliefs to build pyramids. It is Egyptology that sees religion, belief, symbolism, and magic everywhere they look and never noticed NO SUCH WORDS are even attested in Ancient Language. It is Egyptology that holds they must have thought like Egyptologists and since they had no science they were necessarily primitive. They dress it up in all kinds of fancy words and state their own beliefs as "opinion" and that this opinion is built on the opinions of the greats of the past but still never notice the greats of the past lacked evidence and the little evidence found since doesn't support those opinions.
I know you have a pretty high regard for the ancients and you're one of the few people who know we don't even understand the ancient math (even if you do come closer than most).
There's no reason to believe anything is really known about the way they think. Yet Egyptologists wax poetic about the implications of the beliefs of ancients like they are brothers separated at birth. They write books about the definitions of single words in the ancient language like our modern languages aren't complex enough. They ignore the fact their translations don't obey either Zipf's Law or Heap's Law. They ignore the facts. They ignore logic. They support their beliefs with tactics and semantics. They announce they understand the math and language and shout down anyone who disagrees. Their MO is to ignore evidence and deal with critics by "divide and conquer".

I couldn't have said it better.
Not only were the pyramid builders more knowledgeable and advanced (in many ways) than we are, but God help, us they were also smarter and more logical.
