Right on all counts.

Egyptology wants us to believe that we can understand the pyramid builders based on a book of incantation. They want us to believe it's OK that they translated this book of incantation with a book written 1000 years later. They want us to believe that the builders were superstitious despite all the evidence to the contrary. They want us to believe that there is a "cultural context" which can only fit Egyptological beliefs. There is no room in this context for there to be any basis in the Emerald Tablets or even an original source material for them.

Whoever and whenever this was written it doesn't agree with Egyptological opinion of cultural context so like most evidence and most everything it is held aside as a red herring.

I don't see why if their work is based on something from a 1000 years later they have much justification damning work based on a book from 4500 years later. This goes double if the "book of the dead" is more confused than the Emerald Tablets which it may well be. I sure don't see much in the "book of the dead" that's very helpful in understanding the Pyramid Texts. But at least the author of the Emerald Tablets had some insight into the ancients.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
