What the quarry marks show is that Khufu was involved in the construction process at the very least at and to some extent beyond the RC, not that he originated the project or even completed it.
Tell me how I'm wrong Merrell.
You also stated as "fact":
"No, the Great Pyramid was built in the time of Khufu, the mid-3rd millennium BC".
Again, we do not know to what extent Khufu was involved in the project.
"He intended it for use as his tomb..."
No, Merrell, we do not know if any pharaoh intended their pyramids to be their tomb.
If Pyramids are not Tombs, then where are the Pharaohs?
Readers would note your lack of participation there....
But again, please tell me how I am wrong.
"...(it's been suggested that he died in the summer of 2483 BC, before his tomb was fully complete)".
Oh...? So then this would mean some of it was built after the time of Khufu? I'm confused because you just said "the Great Pyramid was built in the time of Khufu". And "2483 BC", you say? That's a nice exact number and in the "summer" no less. Which regardless would be weird as by nearly all accepted chronologies "2483 BC" would place this in the 5th Dynasty in or around the reign of Sahure.
You are going off the dates of 2509-2483BC for Khufu's reign which are not accepted by Egyptology though widely copy and pasted almost verbatim in internet articles appearing only on or after the Nov 2, 2017 press release of the Muon study (Nov 2, 2017) finding a void. It would appear these dates are only what was offered by the Muon team which unless they know something the rest of us do not would seem to be in error and/or are using dates otherwise not accepted by Egyptology at large. Source please.
