If by direct evidence you mean mortal remains then the answer is no because the pyramids have been picked clean because they were the biggest and attracted the most attention (and still do, pseudo archaeology for example isn't interested in post 4th dyn dyn pyramids). You know this and still continue to demand for direct evidence??? and at the same time dismissing the architectural evidence??? You can't have it both ways, Cladking.

Never noticed any evidence of balance scales on the pyramids, nor has anyone else I suspect. Ramps are evidenced in the culture Cladking and you know it.

No, there's archaeological evidence for ramps while there's no evidence for geysers or complicated machinery. Geyser powered machines exist only in your (and some others) immagination. Machinery some more some less complex (even with counterweights) have been proposed by egyptology, but at least they admit there's no evidence that such technology was available in the OK.

There are answers, not to everything and yes there are assumptions and guesses and egyptology has never denied that btw.
There are still many mysteries concerning AE culture (but when they don't concern big pyramids pseudo archaeology isn't interested for some reason), but the function of the big pyramids is clear. No need to throw away what we know and create false mysteries instead, that's a huge waste of time.
