I realise you declare you do not even follow any links to "evidence". However you bleat continually that M Stower ought write a book. I understand that this is a pathetic attempt at a derogatory "put down", in that your idol has written books, and somehow that gives him in your mind , some sort of superiority.
However, it has occurred to me that you are so ignorant of the essence of the argument you may be really in need of simple to follow guide.
So, if not for your benefit then perhaps for others (lurkers) who are deluded by Creighton's rubbish then I offer something extra. (It is not meant for the regular contributors here as most of them have greater knowledge than I possess)
You and SC have been asked repetitively : How Vyse & team could have forged the Kings Horus name (7 times) and why they would fake the prenomen 10 times?
Now at the time of the discovery there were a number of pre-eminent scholars of hieroglyphics.
John Gardner Wilkinson (later 'Sir' knighted for his service to (called Britian's father of) Egyptology )
I Rosselini a student of JF Champollion (Italian but spent much time in France)
K Lepsius ( German)
That will do for this purpose but there were more.
Now in Operations Vol1 Page 279 to 284
Samuel Birch writes, soon after discovery, a commentary about the "quarry marks" found by Col H Vyse.
Since you do not read links but for others a few excerpts
He discusses the disagreement at the time as to what the Khnum Khuf cartouche meant. Seemingly both Wilkinson and Rosselini thought at the time it meant Khufu's brother (or Rosselini maybe successor) . Now found or accepted to be incorrect, however Birch correctly (as currently understood) thought it to be a prenomen (titalry). This was based on him noticing some other king examples of premomen that had been found.
He makes particular comment about what we now would call the phyle name (the bit accompanying the cartouches)
In this case one of the KhnumKhuf inscriptions:
" The meaning of the hieroglyphics following the prenomen,
and written in the same linear hand as the cartouche,
is not very obvious. A reference however to those
on other monuments gives a solution of most of the forms
" They consist of a gom or koucoupha sceptre, a
pschent, a curved line, a sword, a peculiar instrument, and
a level, and apparently compose the titles of the monarch,
similar to " Giver of Life, like the Sun for ever," of later
rulers ; and the sentence may mean " Mighty in Upper
and Lower Egypt, giver of power." The third, fourth,
and fifth symbols, indicate some office, the particular
function of which is at present unknown.
None of the scholars at the time knew what the hell it was all about. Yet Creighton thinks Col Vyse and team confidently copied it (from imaginary sources) risking utter later ridicule if this was inconsistent or irrelevant. Some of the actual glyphs were not known.
" Hieroglyphics are at present so imperfectly understood,
that it is difficult to give an explanation of the whole
of these signs, many of which may after all have been
merely appropriate to masonry ;
Vyse could not possibly have read or understood any imaginary (SC- 'HOAX') secret cache of documents!
The worlds leading experts couldn't understand, AT THE TIME, what they meant either.
