Again I am thoroughly disappointed. I would expect a serious publication that cites an independent researcher and expert to at least refer to a detailed report which I would expect be included unmodified as an Appendix! Perhaps with an introduction indicating the background and verification of said "expert".
No one else including physicists give background and verification of their references, why should Scott? It's not a standard practice. You didn't notice this when you were reading for your several degrees?
To comment on the cartouche as an "art expert" I would expect to see some explanation of the bridge between art and study of painted hieratic on stone.
It sounds like you haven't understood anything Jon said. It doesn't matter if it's hieratic, Japanese, or English painted on paper, stone or wood, he analyzes how the paint was applied
, period. Why is this so hard for you people to grasp.
It seems all that has happened is that as a wet behind the ears newbie to GHMB you posted a theory,
Whether he was a newbie or had been here for years has no bearing on his observations. His expertise didn't begin when he joined GHMB. Why even bring that into the picture.
Nor in 1837 would they be significantly skilled in hieratic to be capable of doing it.
Do you realize the hieratic was translated before the hieroglyphs? It was necessary in order to decode the hieroglyphs. Several books had been published by 1837 full of drawings of hieratic and glyphs. See Champollion, Rosellini, Wilkinson, Klaproth, Bankes. So why wouldn't it be possible?
Is that what you learnt in Uni? Plain BS! How do you access such crevices attested to by many many eye witnesses who declare it impossible?

at the 31:33 mark, Hawass is kneeling in front of the cartouche. So it is possible. Why do your "eye witnesses" say it is not possible?
It seems Lover's "gargantuan ego's" comment seems apt to the reason for any actual consent to be cited in SC book?
Completely irrelevant. It is Scott's book and he can use whomever he wants. When you write your book you will use who you want. It has nothing to do with ego. Looks like it only has to do with who you and lover girl want to attack.
