Apparently you have a great deal of knowledge about all this information they hold in their hands?

Re: "This ancient advanced civilization"
What sort of clothes did they wear?
What sort of food did they eat with what cooking utensils?
What machinery did they possess?
What language did they speak and write?
How and where did they travel?
Why did they build massive temples and create statues of strange figures?

As Warwick put it ( but more succinctly elsewhere);

Egyptology studies what evidence exists (extant) and gathers the pieces together to form a picture.
(Yes there are unknowns like missing jigsaw puzzle pieces, but enough to get the overall impression)
CT's fringe writers deal with the completely unknown and imaginary!

Alternative historians ( albeit GH being one of the best of them) have limited knowledge of many facets (eg such as language) and create fantasy books and speaking engagements and create mysteries for even less knowledgeable gullible folk to pay money to fantasise about.

How did they cut it and move it.... is unknown until there is definite better evidence!
Who did it? - obviously the known identified Ancient Egyptians and cannot be completely unidentified someone's who left without a trace!

There is nothing to debate.
