I don't know that I'm particularly "unschooled," though I freely admit that I am not an Egyptologist by any stretch of the imagination. However, I find it very exciting that there are people actively challenging our assumptions.

Occam's Razor says that the simplest explanation is usually the correct one - and so the artifacts and monuments left by the Ancient Egyptians are probably a lot more mundane than some might suggest, and the people who built them were probably just trying to make a living and take care of their kids.

That said, I find it exhilarating that we are a species that doesn't like to accept things at face value. Until we find a way to go back and interview the builders of the monuments, we can only infer their true purpose - and with so much evidence (and so much more not yet found), there are a wealth of ways to interpret things.

Let's continue to ask challenging questions. Let's keep on suggesting that things might be a little different than we learned in school. Let's return to the data and see what comes up. It's a part of who we are, that we try to reinvent our past so that we might better understand our future. It seems to me that this is our Natural, Human History.

Just thinkin'
