So what happened to the "obelisks"? Which range in weight from 100-450 tons, and 40-100 ft in height.
Are you saying the Abydos boats would float one of these?
From your link [www.abc.se]
About 75 feet in length and seven to ten feet in width at the widest point, these boats are only about two feet deep, with narrowing prows and sterns.
These are not barges. They may have transported jars and kings, but they did not transport 30 ton stones, let alone 50+ tons. The archeologists in your link don't even make this leap.
These boat graves contain actual and viable boats intended for a king's use in the afterlife.

Do you really think these long canoes would carry a 30 ton stone?
from your link
The portion of the boat hull excavated revealed thick wooden planks, lashed together by rope fed through mortises. The seams between the planks were filled with bundles of reeds, while additional reeds carpeted the floor of the boat. Internal framing – a universal aspect of later shipbuilding – is not in evidence, and some of the boats in their graves appear twisted or lopsided, symptomatic of vessels without an internal structure to support them out of the water.

Are you saying they could make these calculations in the 4th dyn?
Was this knowledge lost and then rediscovered by Archimedes?
You can calculate water displacement until the cows come home, but you don't know that the AE could.

Well even one painting or inscription would be long way forward as compared to you and Egyptology having nothing to show they floated obelisks down the Nile. Imagination doesn't make it real.

You mean one of these?
IF it contained a barge! So far they do not. You can't float a stone down the Nile in a pit, so it looks like you're imagining evidence.

What does a modern steel barge have to do with what the AE had? Are you saying because we have steel barges now the AE also had wood barges of equal capacity?
Bottom line is.... you have nothing to show the 4th dyn were able to transport these huge stones. You are imagining they did, just as the Egyptologists imagine.

The amount of effort I expend to learn, is unbeknownst to you.
This would be a good point for you to stop making absurd assumptions about the alts.

I don't know. Unlike the male population here, I don't aim to have all the answers. It doesn't bother me a bit to say I don't know, that you don't know, that no one knows. Especially the Egyptologists. But they sure as hell didn't do it with the boats they've uncovered so far. And there is nothing in monument or written record that shows how they did do it.
But let's just imagine the evidence. Because the stones are there, so they "must have" done it.
