What the ancient Egyptians "believed" is the ONLY thing that matters. What you and I believe is totally beside the point. What Egyptology believes is beside the point and is a construct founded on assumptions which are apparently false and are assuredly faltering.
Did the builders believe they were building tombs?
Did the builders believe they were using ramps?
Did the builders believe in things that were outside of reality?
But most of all it is illogical for us to assume that their beliefs were identical to the beliefs of later people. The beliefs of the builders are unknown and they specifically said the pyramid was no tomb. They said point blank that the dead king did not rot in the earth and that his tomb was in the sky. They strongly implied the king ascended to the sky as the smoke from his cremation. Meanwhile Egyptology is telling us they must have had beliefs just like their descendents because they used the same vocabulary and alphabet. Somehow Egyptologists can't see how illogical this is. It makes perfect sense to Egyptology that the builders said the pyramid was the king's ka and never once said it was his tomb because... ...well... ...Egyptologists know better than the builders.
So here we have it. The builders didn't think they were tombs or that they were built with ramps. There's no reason to believe that they were superstitious because the only writing is incomprehensible gobbledty gook written by people who believed in magic and the writing is just incantation. One wonders why anyone even tries to understand incantation. Do they expect they can figure out how it works so they can get into heaven too????!!!!!! It doesn't bother them that words like tomb (pyramid) and ramp don't exist in the writing since the writing is just magic.
The illogic here is simply staggering. Egyptological beliefs are illogical in biblical proportions.
How exactly are we supposed to understand what the builders thought if we dismiss them in advance as superstitious and we disregard all the cultural and physical evidence that doesn't fit the Egyptological paradigm? How are we supposed to determine what the builders thought if we can't even perform science on the pyramid? How are we supposed to figure out how the pyramid was built when the site is controlled by Egyptologists who either won't do any testing or won't release the results when there is testing?
Why do Egyptologists think they have an inside track on Egyptian beliefs when they have no evidence to back it up?
