SC: I rather suspect that if Humphries Brewer were alive today, he would wholeheartedly disagree with you.
MS: You rather suspect? Is this supposed to be of some evidential weight?
SC: Yes, I "suspect" this because, in the absence of evidence to corroborate Brewer's eye-witness testimony of fraud taking place at the Great Pyramid in 1837, it would be improper at this stage to state such with any more conviction. As things stand, it is essentially Brewer's word against that of a known fraudster, Tricky Dicky Howard-Vyse. And this stalemate is most likely how matters will remain until such time as consensus Egyptology gets the finger out and scientifically tests those inscriptions, to gather further evidence that may help settle this issue one way or t'other.
Yaeupfurrit? I am.
