This post highlights the essence of the conflict, not only in this thread, but most of them in this GHMB Mysteries section.
Archaeology finds stuff and cobbles together a best guess best fit story about the things they find. If they haven't found it yet or it is unfindable it does not and cannot fit in that cobbled together story.
Some folk come to the 'Mysteries' section with considerable or perhaps thorough understanding of why (the basis) Archaeology or Egyptology believes what it does.
Others notice things that do not fit the cobbled story and challenge it however sadly often without at least understanding of the academic "discipline".
"If there is no evidence of these mysterious people, then they don't exist.
To an archaeologist maybe, however that does not make it a fact.
Absence of evidence, is not evidence of absence.
You likely think that hundreds of thousands of years ago primates came from some mammalian source. There are very few indicators of this, so according to your logic, they did not exist, but rather spontaneously appeared at the time of the earliest found remnant! ????????
Implicit in Thanos OP is the presumption that there was no AE before 4000BC or for you "3rd Millennium BCE"
However the builders by definition MUST have been Ancient Egyptians. The region we call Egypt and it was a long time ago we call "ancient". Distinctly you think AE mean ... can't resist.... were the stinky footed bumpkins (TM) who because most of the finds are from burials were obsessed with death dying and the afterlife and in particular that of the king.
Who are Americans? Who were Americans? Who were the VERY first Americans?
So the archaeological position is the AE developed pyramids.! ????

Could add in serveral other places like China, Sudan, Andes etc
Where are these international sea faring travellers which communicated and shared very similar traits almost worldwide?
According to your logic you don't have their boats or bones or potshards so they could not, in fact seems you claim DID NOT, exist!
There is considerable evidence to suggest there was several localised and almost global catastrophe in the not so distant past , a considerable elevation of sea levels. To explore that deep subject I would have to write a book.... hang on.... you might not have heard of this obscure humble fellow but there is this chap called Graham Hancock who has written lots about it and nearly every month for years has presented an author of some form of corroborating information . It includes evidence too.
