Anyway I think that argument only applies to granite and very hard stone that today requires exotic tooling. That's why the modern exotic tooling exists.
You are right about the time warp, when I first became interested in this I regarded the alternative stance as being just a little woo woo but the more I delve into it, it seems that the so called mainstream is even more far out, with a habit of ignoring salient evidence either through pure ignorance, which is excusable, we can't all be specialists in everything, or a conscious effort to ignore and cast aside that what is somewhat uncomfortable, for which there is no excuse.
Stuff got moved and made for which there is no tangible explanation, either in motive or execution.
On the one hand the mainstream is claiming the early dynastic AE had the scientific and technological capacity to carry these projects through. Thus making the AE the lost high tech civilization. Which to me is about as woo woo as you can get.
The others/alts claim that the the AE couldn't and weren't, which is pretty much where I am, based upon the mainstream archaeological physical record. Which for dynastic Egypt is fairly extensive.
The early dynastic AE are not guilty, no physical evidence, no fingerprints, no wherewithal.
If they are guilty of anything, it's of being the best opportunistic re-cyclers ever, with absolutely no interest whatsoever in archaeology.
