Well, some evidence that "could" lead one to to conclude that it "might" have been the 4th Dynasty is a far cry from it being indisputable to the point of denying any alternate possibility and using derogatory language against anyone who disagrees. So I appreciate your objectivity in this current thread.0
Regarding construction vs. design, I thought we were talking about the origin of the GPs, and that includes the need, design, and construction, among many other things. You can't just look at "who built them?" in isolation. It's like trying to study electricity by only considering voltage. You can't avoid also considering current and resistance, among many other things, if you truly want to understand electricity. Otherwise, if you see someone killed by lightning and you only know about voltage, you might be misled into believing it was the high voltage that killed the guy.
Evidence that "leads one to conclude" is a subjective proposition because it depends on the standards of proof each of us subscribes to. I see no evidence that would "lead" one to favor a 3rd millennium BC provenance for those GPs. Rather, the evidence seems to contradict a 3rd millennium BC origin. Meanwhile, I never denied that the GPs "might" have been built in the 3rd millennium BC, but I don't see any compelling evidence indicating they were, and so I'm probing alternative paradigms.
I believe the notion that the GPs were built earlier than the 3rd millennium BC is better supported by the physical evidence, if for no other reason than an earlier provenance does a better job avoiding all the contradictions that plague a 3rd millennium BC provenance.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
