Understand the question, but think it's just a tad unrealistic.Quote
What evidence do you have that any of this was done ?
What Gary & Scott claim about RVT's isn't original. The Arab's wrote of it hundreds of years ago. Considering how Egypt has been pillaged (a crying shame) there isn't enough left to prove anything beyond a doubt.
I think you are most correct in that some supporting material (avoiding the word 'evidence') is more logical than others. So since we can't debate relics or artifacts we can only debate what the purpose may have been.
Your opinion Ahatmose, just as everyone else, is an important part of the why and what for. Although I tend to agree with the RVT idea, I don't think you should drop your objections.
What I disagree with is Scott and Gary's time frame. It is proposed in accordance with mainstream chronology, which is really screwed up.
