Such is the mantra of denial. That you can't just graciously agree to disagree only serves to focus more clearly on the legitimacy of the logical alternatives. Your constant evasion of the simplest direct question only validates the question. You incessantly mock the possibility of a more ancient presence, and yet your detailed photo bombs repeatedly support that alternative perspective at least as well as your own perspective. Nothing you presented contradicts the logical alternative which only forces you deeper into such sarcasm and insults. It's a repeating cycle.
So you expect the reader to accept that it's more likely that all those pyramids of monolithic limestone, basalt, and granite were constructed within, or far closer to, the first 200 years of the Bronze Age and that the reason we have no evidence of the tools and methods to accomplish that work is that the AE had access to the technology but that the technology was not developed by the AE but rather was largely provided by the Mesopotamians, et al., who summarily took back their technology from the AE after that massive 200 year construction project thereby leaving no trace of that technology In the AE historic record despite the huge record left behind by the AE regarding every other aspect of life during that time. And despite the enigma that nowhere in that vast historic record left by the OK AE is there any mention of even the existence of any of that massive construction, let alone the creation of it or the technology they used to accomplish such a thing, you nevertheless feel so strongly about that paradigm that you think it's perfectly ok to insult anyone who proposes a logically uncontradicted alternative that a more ancient presence was responsible for that construction.
Each argument you present that supports an AE provenance ends up supporting a more ancient presence at least as strongly if not more so (in my opinion). If such an alternative is so "unpleasant", why not just ignore it instead of engaging so hostilely each time you encounter it?
And don't even get me started about...
- - Marshmallow monoliths of soliid andesite that we are to believe were somehow created by primitive Incas.
- Or those 1000-1600 ton megaliths at Baalbek allegedly quarried, transported, and positioned during Roman times when the best technology available was a 12-wheel cart with no bearing technology for a steering mechanism and a load capacity of barely 30 tons per cart.
- Also, let's not forget that the Mesopotamians must have done such an excellent job removing all of that technology after the AEs used it to create all those pyramids, that the AEs were left at a complete loss to develop a simple mechanical linkage such that they required a full THOUSAND years to figure out how to convert an OK hand-operated potter's wheel into a NK foot-operated device.
- And of course, the AEs completely forgot about the wheel they used when building all those pyramids with Mesopotamian technology, and so they had to wait more than a millennium until the NK when the Hyksos, et al. introduced the chariot.
All that technology to build 200 years worth of pyramids in the early bronze age, and then it's so suddenly taken away such that no AE could remember what they saw yesterday to at least add another lever to a potter's wheel or recall how a simple wheel improved their lifestyle so drastically.
We need to acknowledge the problematic nature of contextual dating and stop this ideological bickering if there is any hope of arriving at the truth.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
