It's "logic" to you. But you do not and cannot think like an ancient Egyptian. To you words are fairly profane 'tools' used to convey ideas. To an AE words meant much more. The term 'hieroglyphic' itself means "sacred carving". This is nothing more than ethno-centric projection.

Turn the question on its head. Perhaps the reason we only find it in Campbell's Chamber is because this is the ONLY place such examples exist! And why might that be? BECAUSE THEY'RE FAKE. They don't exist anywhere else and THAT is why you can't find other examples elsewhere. They were written by someone who didn't understand hieratic text. That's why they make no sense. It's certainly a more believable scenario, imo, given all the other cock-ups Vyse & Co made in those chambers.

That wasn't a personal comment - at least it was not intended as such. It was simply an observation that when proponents of the orthodox position cannot make the evidence fit orthodoxy's own 'rules', you simply ignore the orthodox 'rules' and attempt to shift the goal-posts; ignore the actual evidence and re-write the 'rule book' to meet the new situation. Seriously--it's pathetic.
