Indeed, I've even said they are wrong!!! This is hard to fathom but there's right and there's wrong and Egyptologists are wrong. They are wrong about all of their assumptions and this is how they went about assuming the conclusion. Along the way they are even wrong about how to translate the PT. This doesn't involve just a word here and a word there but rather many many dozens of words including the most fundamental words in the language. For instance they had no word for an imaginary consciousness that controls men's lives. The word we translate as this superstitious nonsense actually just meant "natural phenomenon". What makes this so fundamental an error is that EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE had to include a scientific word in order to define the subject and many of these scientific words were specific natural phenomena. Egyptologists see superstitious silliness in every sentence and marvel that our ancestors were so superstitious. Since they missed this rule of grammar and mistranslate most key words (you know, that words that define the subject of every sentence) it's hardly surprising they are wrong about the PT. They were so busy looking up words in the book of the dead they forgot to read their own translations of the PT or they might have seen it just means EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS.
I could count on all my fingers and toes the times that Egyptologists have given me a reasoned response to a post or idea but there aren't enough stars in the sky to count the number of insults they've heaped upon me for having the temerity to suggest they aren't perfect or might not know everything. Indeed, they just don't seem to get along with people who think for themselves or have an opinion. You might try to ingratiate yourself with them but this tactic has proven ineffective for others. They want people to bow not to help them solve the many mysteries about the pyramids or why the word "belief" is unattested. They don't want tuna with good taste... ...and they don't mind a little dolphin mixed in either.
You'll never be taken seriously until you can opine all of their beliefs. When you can say that "cultural context" must always be the determinative factor with a straight face then you'll be on the inside. Oddly enough they are exactly right but the real culture has no relationship whatsoever to the paradigm.
