I'd be very surprised if they ever did any testing to see if they were defaced at the same time they were first inscribed but even if they were this could simply indicate RITUAL. They didn't have any words for "belief" or superstition but they had lots and lots of ritual.

We throw rice at weddings but few of us expect to harvest grasses or babies later on. No matter how many flowers are at funerals the guest of honor is still deceased and still doesn't smell like a rose. So why do you think the pyramid builders trembled in fear from pictures of snakes?

Our beliefs are founded in nothing but opinion and assumptions and many of these are illogical, non sequitur, or wholly unevidenced. Not doing testing is not the same thing as knowing the answer. It is superstition to believe testing isn't necessary if you already know. It is anti-science and anti-rational.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
