Steve, the bow drill you posted is drilling into a wooden bed, but it's not clear why they're drilling into that particular part of the bed...

Correct, but there's a huge and critical difference...
First, there are no records at all from the builders' culture. If those things were built over 10k years ago, then virtually all of the non-durable evidence has been absorbed/resorbed long ago leaving only the most durable evidence remaining: their stonework. The builders obviously didn't broadcast their culture in paintings and engravings the way the Dynastics did, the latter often attempting to cover every square inch of wall and ceiling with paintings, inscriptions, etc. In contrast, the early pyramids are devoid of original narratives and announcements. As I've said before, I think the original builders came from a very pragmatic culture and had no use for advertising who they were; they had no need to mark up their buildings.
On the other hand, the Dynastics left behind an enormous volume of documentation, paintings, inscriptions, artifacts, narratives, etc., about every aspect of Dynastic life, right down to small business contracts, bean counts, gossip, lawsuits, etc. They have their public decrees, family histories, and let's not forget their long list of titles for each notable individual. In tombs we find artifacts that represent what they did when they were alive so that they could carry that skill with them to the afterlife. And yet not a single thing about any of those people participating in, or even witnessing, the construction of any of those pyramids.
Remember, we're not just talking about a solitary, low profile "temple" that couldn't be seen when you're more than a few hundred yards away. We're talking about an enormous man made mountain of masonry that can be seen many miles away from virtually any direction. Uncountable travelers, merchants, etc. from around the Mediterranean and from distance countries traveling there by land would have seen that constructions virtually every day of the week. And we're not just talking about one pyramid. We're talking about a string of them which, in aggregate, took a few centuries to construct. I would think it's quite possible that over a million people would have observed such construction over that period of time. And yet, with all of those people who clearly would have observed that construction, and with all that massive volume of documentation we have from that Dynastic culture (not to mention from other cultures elsewhere that traveled to Egypt at that time), there's no indication of firsthand knowledge of that construction.
And so as I've also said several times over the years about the 3rd millennium BC: if a civilization leaves such an enormous volume of evidence that shows us that it knew about every color but blue, that's pretty good evidence that it didn't know about blue.
This is not an easy thing to skirt around.

Actually, I was thinking of Earth vs. The Flying Saucers (marker 1:07)
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
