Be comforted and assured, it is settled! Your fantasy is WRONG!

See you agree, you are not convinced either!

On the contrary, your fantasized, completely unattested unevidenced, 'cold geyser powered funicular method' postulated a priori as the essence of PT, means you need to further ignorantly assume the PT language and words must therefore be "scientific" .
You said months ago in this same thread:
If I'm wrong about this then I'm stupid and arrogant for ever even suggesting it and if I'm right then everything Egyptologists believe will have to be chucked out and rethought. No matter what I'm insulting to what Egyptologists believe. So I am ignored for the main part.
If "everything", then that includes decipherment of heiroglyphs, which means Sethe, Allen, Mercer (et al) :-) PT translations or attempts, not to mention heiroglyph translation in total are, according to you, incorrect, and therefore cannot be the basis of your interpretive fantasy! You 'pull the rug out from under your own feet!' and highlight the lack of substantial basis for the fantasy.
As you already stated months ago in this thread:
I'm not sure there is anything "reliable" about Mercer's PT.
What I'm saying is that for whatever reason his version of the PT is the easiest position from which to see author intent. It isn't for me to say why this is since I don't speak Ancient Language, ancient Egyptian, or even German but it is apparently because Sethe was intellectually honest as was Mercer. This is question that will have to wait for the scholars to answer

Egyptology does not claim to have all the answers but has employed some methodology and documented it. You have NONE! You do not even have even the lowest standards of evidence!.... rather ABSOLUTELY NONE!

As Hanslune pointed out you have failed to produce any coherent clear document with any supporting evidence so there is nothing to argue with other than wild bizarre fantasies:
Stuff like this, which again you posted in this thread (bold my enhancement):
Much like we see cleverness in "dumb animals" I believe Ancient Language speakers saw great cleverness in modern language speakers. They knew we had no understanding of science but we could still walk through the world without often stepping on alligators. ...[snip]They just assumed that someday we might actually discover a means to learn about nature that didn't even require a logical language.
So somehow ancients knew about modern language speakers... they had time travel your fantasy "aliens"?
In your comedy message board routine, or troll efforts, (if any of that is what it is intended )or mental affliction, you make such a huge contradictory mess of it no one can take you seriously enough to argue with you.
Another from this thread
They aren't even "pyramids" at all. They are tiny little piles of rubble collapsed over underground chambers. Not only is the "translation" an anachronism but even the name "pyramid texts" is an anachronism.
So you think that "Great Pyramid" builders decided to describe their construction technique exclusively in what you call "tiny little piles of rubble "!?
Are you nuttier than a quality fruitcake?
Look if over the last decade you have backed yourself into a corner, are merely stubbornly defending your pride for the sake of killing time and pretending you know what you are talking about perhaps some of that time might be better spent at a quality library (Chicago will have several) reading and learning the basics of hieroglyphic language decipher.
