So, I just read those two threads (the first one being really, really, really long), plus a third thread linked to the other two, and Graham's position statement, but unfortunately, I have yet to find any solid answers to this issue, despite finding many more questions...
1.) First of all, can anyone tell me if the issue of the spelling/misspelling of the Khufu cartouche is conclusively resolved?
2.) Does anyone have a good explanation as to why G1, G2, G3 are lacking in internal hieroglyphs, unlike all the other pyramids, if they were built during the time of Khufu?
3.) Why did the high level of technology used in the construction G1, G2, G3 drop precipitously in subsequent dynasties?
4.) Doesn't Graham currently believe that G1, G2, G3 were merely refurbished during Khufu's reign and were originally built thousands of years earlier than Khufu?
5.) Isn't Graham's opinion as articulated in his position statement based solely on Old Kingdom graffiti, not the Khufu cartouche itself?
6.) Has the possibility of there being more than one Khufu been definitively ruled out?
Because on one hand, if we say G1, G2, G3 were built when the orthodox Egyptologist say, then I fail to understand the vast differences in pyramid styles/size/technology between G1, G2, and G3 and everything else, not to mention the lack of hieroglyphs. Yet on the other hand, if they were built long before, as we know the Sphinx was, I have to assume that either there was an earlier Khufu or the Khufu cartouche was forged, and the Old Kingdom graffiti is identical to an earlier, pre-dynastic hieroglyphic writing style, or that it is actually different...
