The very sources you cited state the opposite. You quote them for one thing that supports your claims, but not what they say that directly contradicts it? They clearly state the Romans quarried granite columns from Egypt, namely from Mons Claudianus. The Romans even left some columns behind:
Note the man standing on the column for scale. Looks like about 50 tons to me.
That isn't an Egyptian style column either-it's Roman.
Again, Romans are the only culture found there, not even the AE. Roman historians claim this is where they quarried them from. And sure enough there they are in the temples that they say they appropriated them for in the first place. We even find leftovers still at the quarry that are clearly not Egyptian columns, but Roman. I think this horse is dead. I feel dumber just even having to say these things.
If you truly have any doubts in your mind at this point then the onus is on you to educate yourself. I feel I have contributed enough to this conversation and am bored.

What is some of this evidence? I know, but I don't know what you know.

But we are waiting for the information that backs ups these claims. Your "research".

Well lay some of it out here for a change. You always speak in the negative but never in the positive for your claims, well here is your chance.
