This is what really concerns me. There are almost unlimited possibilities for how the great pyramids were built but they just picked one of the less likely means and stick to it. "It mustta been ramps" because these people lacked science and basic understanding of mechanics. They lacked complex knowledge and were highly superstitious. They didn't even have the language of science and spoke in magic, incantation, and gods. So it's very apparent they used a brutish and the least complex possible means to lift stones. They simply don't care that this means isn't evidenced and the word didn't even exist. They don't care that dragging stones on ramps is incredibly inefficient since they were just brutes motivated by superstition anyway.
This means no other way to build pyramids will be considered. It means they don't need to run scientific tests to see how they were built since they already have the answer. It means they don't need to respond to their critics because they have a science and ramps are state of the art. It means it's easier to commission studies showing it might have been ramps, relocate the stone draggers, and invent wet sand than to apply science.
Where are the results of the muon scanning? Are they being withheld until they fit the paradigm because no gold was found? I'm sure everyone could be more patient about the results if they hadn't been sitting on data for 15 months and withholding the current data for weeks now. I'm sure patience would be easier if they used this technology when it was new half a century ago!!!
