WC Fields wisely said "never give a sucker an even break". I guess I never should have mentioned the word appears in the PT.
But this doesn't change the fact that the word "ramp" is unattested from the great pyramid building age. There were no ramp builders and no draggers of stones on ramps. There was no god of ramps and no receipts for ramp material. When the word finally does appear in a tiny little imitation pyramid from the 5th dynasty it is referring to a means to go DOWN for MEN and GODS rather than a means for stones to go up.
No, the word "ramp" is still unattested from the era in question. You'd have to show that this usage from later times is relevant which is simply impossible unless you can find a provenance for the line from earlier times.
Funny how the concept of "pyramid tombs" and the word "pyramid" barely appears in the Pyramid Texts despite the fact the tiny little "pyramids" in which they were found probably were actually tombs. It's almost like we can't understand the language at all, isn't it? Since the Pyramid Texts don't say what Egyptologists want and don't support the paradigm they have been translated in terms of the book of the dead. In these terms they can gloss over the fact that they don't agree. It's hard to even see it's incomprehensible gobbledty gook when they are just abracadabra anyway as Egyptology claims.
There is almost nothing to support the paradigm which resulted from a series of assumptions, all of which are mostly unfounded and were just best guesses back in the 19th century. It's just natural to assume that the "gods" mentioned in the PT are the exact same Gods known to the authors of the book of the dead. This was the error. The word ramp is unattested, there's no evidence the pyramids were tombs, it is illogical to assume nothing changed, and the only reason to believe they were superstitious is they referred to "gods" a lot.
