So why not dispute the sky is blue or down is beneath up?
Simply stated every time I've heard an Egyptolgist talk about building pyramids he suggested that they used ramps and then waxed poetic about how shared beliefs gave them the power.
I listen to and read Egyptologists quite a bit but it's not because I care about what they believe. I pay attention because I have an interest in the pyramids and Egyptologists are the only experts in the world. They're wrong and all of their assumptions are wrong. I don't care what they believe and am not in the mood to research it to prove a moot point.
Of course I've seen them suggest other things. But it's mere hyperbole to say they all believe in ramps (SO FAR AS I KNOW). They believe these people were superstitious and believed in magic and many imaginary consciousnesses that controlled men's lives. This is the state of affairs. They don't believe there was any science by the definitions of our science. They don't believe there could have existed any knowledge derived from science. You can use semantics or ask for proof but these are the simple facts. Not one of them will agree that "isis" is really the natural phenomenon of falling weight or any other natural phenomena. If there's an exception (Susan Morrow?) then I really believe you should find it. ...Mebbe when you're looking fort someone who doesn't believe in brutish and primitive means of lifting stones.
Really, who cares what they believe? Think of yourself as Galileo, and you are up against the Church at that time. Galileo, proceeded to prove them all wrong, though he paid a high price. Just complaining won't change anything. If you spent more of your energy on reconstructing your beliefs and less time complaining, you might produce a compelling argument. Write a book. The most current orthodoxy is Mark's, so this would be a good place to start.
