...Because they define a ramp too narrow or corners too busy.
Would you be comfortable walking down a steep ramp with nothing below you to catch your fall except stones being dragged up? Sure they could put up guardrails without making the ramp wider but it's still at least 10' wide and once it gets over about 350' the footprint of the ramp begins blocking the ramp below starting a feedback loop that can't be beaten.
In the real world two way ramps at corners would have to be nearly 20' wide.
ANY theory that has anything go up the pyramid which is not construction material must allow for it to come back down. Our romantic notion of sleds, rollers, and bumpkins is attractive to us but very unrealistic. Rollers as well as needing to be moved thousands of times on each ascent must also be taken back down. That's 40,000,000 trips for rollers downhill. 100,000,000 man trips down and 6 1/2 million sleds. This requires infrastructure and it requires maintenance and everything else it entails. Just the aggregate amount of work to get DOWN the pyramid would exceed anything we might do today. If it takes men an average of five minutes to get back down 8,000,000 man hours are wasted while they are wasting the effort of getting up when they come down!!!! Then today's theorists don't even allow for the waste of 8,000,000 man hours nor the waste of 1,200,000,000 foot pounds of work this represents.
Ramps are ridiculous not just because they are unevidenced but because they are so illogical.
I seriously doubt the total work done by humans and animals that actually built the pyramid combined even approaches the amount of wasted effort that ramps would entail. And this isn't including the work to build ramps and tear them down. Just the waste of men lifting their own weight up the ramps exceeds the effort actually expended to build the pyramid. Then most ramp theorists don't even allow a means for them to get down. How ironic.
