As a technicality, that the words were already ancient in Dynastic times strongly supports the notion that they were NOT written by the Dynastics, but they could have been written by another intermediate culture between the Dynastics and the original builders and not necessarily by the builders themselves. In fact, since we really don't know with certainty when those things were built, any number of intervening cultures might have had their way with the historic record before Dynastic times. And any intervening influence on those texts make it more likely that the Dynastics' version is that much farther from an accurate portrayal of those original events. Kind of like what we read about the Creation, Adam & Eve, the Burning Bush, the parting of the Sea, Noah, manna from Heaven, etc.

Following Avry's logic, no Christian should put any credence in King Jame's version of the New Testament since it was translated from Greek rather than from the original Hebrew which often renders a significantly different translation to English. And that's assuming that the Hebrew was written by eye-witnesses and was not simply relaying stories that had been passed on by word of mouth for millennia before that.

It certainly does seem to be the case, increasingly so.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
