We are left with scholars who know every detail of ancient thought, belief, and practices yet no two agree on anything except bumpkins dragging tombs.
They are impervious to any fact, evidence, or logic that show the fundamental assumptions are wrong because they can create massive lists of Egyptologists who believe(d) in bumpkins dragging tombs.
Of course the assumptions don't stop here and they even assume that radio carbon dating must be wrong because it doesn't agree with their beliefs and that the builders were superstitious because they analyzed the writing in terms of one of the most superstitious books ever written; the book of the dead. They simply refuse to look at the fact ramps are debunked and there's a stone on the east side of the pyramid you can cook eggs on in November!!!
They refuse to look, listen, or feel while they speak only of things derived from old assumptions.
Thanos has great posts but they simply don't always support the points he thinks they do. And, of course, like everyone else in the world he can't support bumpkins dragging tombs either.
Until we actually have a paradigm that supports the known facts we aren't going to make any real progress in understanding where, when, how, and why the pyramids were built. At this time Egyptology is counting how many angels can dance on the head of a pin nd even this count appears highly speculative.
