I couldn't agree more. This is what Egyptologists refuse to see; the lack of evidence in their mountain of cultural context. This WILL BE reconciled when the truth is known and this reconciliation will not include a single stinky footed bumpkin dragging tombs up ramps. There are many ways that these facts can be reconciled but in my opinion the simplest way to do it is to just assume all the data is right in front of our collective noses but we can't see it. We don't even think exactly like the authors of the book of the dead so why do Egyptologists believe we think just like the great pyramid builders???!
We can't see the evidence because we are looking everywhere else from the wrong perspective. We can't see meaning expressed in context as was the means of ancient language. We can't read the words of the gods without parsing them and can't see the artwork from their perspective. We seek meaning only in terms we understand but there are more things in heaven and earth than can be dreamed of in philosophy of Horatio Omnisciencis.
