Many millions of dollars pour into Egyptology every year to fund the status quo.
I'm tired of hearing "Egyptapologists" cry poverty when it's suggested they should perform $100 tests. I'm tired of hearing they can't afford to run tests and release the results when companies offer to do it for free. And with all these millions pouring in to maintain a status quo built of assumption and speculation, I'm tired of hearing how alts are lying through their teeth to get rich.
No matter how you twist my words, the facts, or semantics the fact is there is ample money in Egyptology for everything except data, truth, and alts who won't change their minds.
How much do you think all the pay, all the grants, all the government funding, all private funding, baksish, and targeted foreign aid in the entire world adds up to annually? $1.98
