...start turning to "dust" in mere decades-what hope is there of granite cutting iron chislels such as these:
...surviving 1,500yrs? Or 3,000? Or maybe even 5,000yrs?
Oh, right-but if they did not "turn to dust" then they were taken by marauding invaders with a "fiery passion" to "wipe out this civilization" and take all of the valuable things like say all the metal i.e. tools. Invaders like perhaps (in no particular order) the Hittites, Hyksos, Persians, Greeks, Libyans, Assyrians, Babylonians, Nubians, Romans- or how about even those pagan hating "Crusaders" who invaded Egypt 4 times in less than 2 decades. And all this was after 2,000BC which says nothing of what foreign powers may have raped and pillaged Egypt's wealth before, say like Sumer, Byblos, or Elam among others.
