If by "anyone" you actually mean yourself, then such statement might in fact , be true.
However, a reasonable objective study of the discoveries made in Egypt, beyond a primary focus on just one pyramid, even if such study accompanied by considerable scepticism, then that "anyone" would be in no doubt why Egyptology reaches its speculative opinion, based on what evidence actually found (as opposed to just imagined)
IMO that study represents the minimum precursor requirement , in order to qualify to be in any reasonable position "identify what is wrong with it" !

In anticipation of a follow up request to lay out some facts, of which you then might wish to manipulate to argue against, then I would suggest a reasonably thorough study of mastabas. You will find many exhibit very similar chamber arrangements as found in most pyramids, some include granite stone workings, and the collective body of evidence leaves little wriggle room for 'imaginative independent researcher's' to dispute that they (mastabas) were constructed as tombs.
This does not mean all pyramids were constructed for the same purpose.
(However, as an aside I note with head shaking (face palm) amusement that your friend, colleague and collaborator, S Creighton has recently fired up his psychotic clairvoyant predictive powers and done a complete 180 deg turn and now predicts that up to possibly 54 kings are buried in G1!)
So far there is generator, a greenish electrolysis machine, some other mumbo from CK, all without any supporting coherent facts or explanation of how such a thing could work.
So where is your speculative woo woo alternative ? What facts or evidence support it?
