I've never seen such a bare faced and desperate attempt to take an unorthodox idea and squeeze it into an orthodox narrative.
The granite box wouldn't last forever so they used the method Scott is talking about to allow - what - maintenance crews in every now and then to do what? Superglue the granite back together? Dab some plaster of paris here and there? Stick some duct tape up on the chamber roof? And carting the pharoahs sacred body out to do this, disrupting his eternal afterlife by treating him like a turkey you would take out in order to clean the oven? Nonsense.
What about the granite blocks blocking the entrance to the Grand Gallery long before you'd even reach the portal Scott is talking about? And what if a part of your granite box needed replacing? How do they get new granite of any size in there? Please... no more of those 200 tonne blocks you keep going on about. They ain't going to be adding any new stone to the inside of the pyramid once the king is interred. Too late for maintenance crews and too late for fixing the granite box by this time. You seal it up and leave it.
Come on, if you're going to argue the orthodox case, at least stick to the script. The GP as a tomb would be sealed for eternity, never to be reopened - at least that was the intention. You can't just make stuff up about getting back in to fix the ceiling just because Scott has raised an interesting point about the mechanism used for sealing the king's chamber being suitable for getting back into it. I am genuinely surprised at how quickly you change and discard a basic tenet of the orthodox view simply to come up with a counter argument to Scott. Now you've got the AE actually going back into the pyramid tombs anytime it suits them. A groundbreaking new theory in its own right!!
A tomb for the pharoah - inviolate. A recovery vault - meant to be broken back into at some point. See the difference?
If the pyramids were tombs, they would have been closed off with thick, solid granite in such a way that no one would have been able to break into the internal chambers... at least not without incredible effort.
The evidence fits Scott's theory the best... and he doesn't have to change his story in order to make things fit.
There is a reason why these stone mountains were not as impregnable as they could have been.
