I think it makes sense regardless of the details or by whom or when.

I do. At the very least all I feel sure of is the Sphinx, associated temples, G2's base which I suggest was originally a stepped platform, and its mortuary temple predates pyramid building. I do not think the Sphinx mob was related to the granite mob. Between these two, possibly separated by thousands of years, was the formation of the Dynastic state administered by Mesopotamians.

But if granite is used to face the massive limestone blocks then how can it be the most ancient? Its like saying the painter painted the house before it was built.

So then you think there were two granite mobs separated in time? What would you attribute to each group and why?

Yes. Thats what I and lover were talking about in general. Those blocks are part of the core structure and shaved flat after installation. Same as the Bent, Red and the top of G2 "casing stones". I suggested in a previous thread that what is seen today at Meidum was not originally intended to be a pyramid and the "banding" seen is stylistic.
