You're reading you own reflection. If you don't care looking in the mirror, someone will step up and let the mirror look at you. Anyway, let's get back on topic and let time reveal who is right.

Are you really sure that Egyptian "kwak" has the same meaning as an English "kwak"? And how come "kwek" became "kwak"? And what about "kwik". Why fuse 3 ducks into 1? They are 3 individuals; not 1. I don't believe "kwek" and "kwik" are happy becoming "kwak".

Is this what you mean by "voicing" and "same point of articulation". Another thing: Those early stages made a conscious decision to differentiate between these sounds; it's Champillion who fused them. He was the one having troubles to differentiate them.
