You didn't say it, thanos did. Hello?
Everything you've said and all your drawings, show only ropes, wood and pulleys (wood pulleys?)

Yes it is an oversimplification. Your "simple machines" are an oversimplification.
You're the one who insists on simple machines

"Sliding" on what? A ramp, yes? Be it 3 miles long or 20' long, it's a ramp. Whether it utilizes water or oil or sand, it's a ramp.
I wasn't talking about lifting per se, I was talking about a funicular and 'simple machines'.
Transporting blocks from boat to foot of pyramid is only delivering materials. A funicular doesn't aid in building the pyramid. Many people have drawn wood cranes and short ramps in an attempt to explain how the blocks were lifted. Herodotus was the first to suggest it. Using "simple machines" isn't a news flash.
You guys are not hearing me.
Using simple machines as an explanation, we can view our modern construction using the same concept.
We build a house using a handsaw and ruler to frame it. We then bring out the power tools to finish the inside of the house.
Or - we have blacksmiths pounding out steel beams on their anvils to make the steel frame for a high rise. We then bring out the high tech tools and welding torches to finish the building.
You guys are saying handsaws and anvils were used to frame. But you have no idea how the pyramid interior was finished. The interiors of the great pyramids are way beyond handsaws and anvils. It makes no sense that the framing is simple and the interior is complex. They were capable of complex, why on earth would they use simple to frame?
Why would you use a welding torch on the inside construction but not the outside?
Funiculars and "simple machines" would have to explain construction of the interiors as well. And they don't.
