Jon has correctly characterized my perspective. I wouldn't even be opposed to a lost arachnid civilization having built those confounded things if there was compelling physical evidence. Lord knows they'd have an easier time negotiating those treacherous passages! But I tend to go with problem-solving beings who depend on externally applied tools to do the work. The greatest probability lies with humans or other hominid species (perhaps now extinct) in the pre-dynastic past.
Regarding the glyphs, just as ancient material artifacts have been repurposed by later civilizations, so might their symbols of communication. Do we have any idea how far back the simple smile and snarl go in the history of animals on Earth? Why not the same for other manually generated symbols? I've already stated many times that I believe there is compelling physical evidence that warrants reasonable doubt about the authenticity of the "Kh-u-f-u" cartouche, and there is evidence in early records that references to "Khnum-Khfu" may have origins related to water, the control of water, the dependence of water on life, the creation and sustenance of life, etc. with no bearing at all to originally referring to an individual human being named Khufu circa 2500 BC., and that such labeling in and around that structure was ancient even in Khufu's lifetime and may have prompted Sneferu to use it for his son's namesake.

How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
