It's the assumptions that are wrong. I've said many times they have a great deal of knowledge and in those areas that there are no assumptions then their knowledge prevails. They won't always be right ut they have a better chance than anyone else.
One of these areas is in being able to translate the vocabulary. They do a very good job selecting a modern word with the same "meaning" as the ancient word. This would normally constitute a good translation but (did I mention) the language changed. They are trying to translate a metaphysical language that is tied to reality into a modern language that is tied to convention, beliefs, and perspective. It can't be done, it can't be translated.
This came about because when the language changed the vocabulary did not change. People still used the same "words" with about the ame maning but the way they were formatted changed. Egyptologists simply assumed all these words meant exactly the same thing as they did to the authors of the book of the dead. They assumed the language never chnged because they saw the same vocabulary. So we're left with the strange situation that a commn Joe can deduce the meaning based on logic and scientific knowledge but Egyptologists are still convinced it's superstitious gobledty gook that can never be understood. Such is the power of belief. Such is the power of assuming the conclusion. You might not recognize the reality even after someone shows you the reality. You'll just keep repeating back your beliefs and your assumptions to c9onvince him he's wrong without ever really trying to understand his posts.
Funny world ain't it? It's rare anyone ever responds to me on point. People just keep repeating what they believe and how my theory flies in the face f what they believe. They think it's perfectly natural that the word "ramp" isn't even attested from the great pyramid building age. They think their belief in ramps trumps any possible facts or logic. They think that since the word "god" is used over nd over that the builders mustta been supertitiou nd their "obvious" belief in magic suggests they were none too bright. They think it's perfectly natural they could build pyamids with ramps and leave no evidence.
All they had to do was start with the asumption that they mustta used ramps. Voila!
