I suppose their evidence for that is in the same closet as their evidence that pyramids were designed to be tombs, and were built with the assistance of huge construction ramps that consumed 2x-3x the mass of the pyramids themselves?
Your standards of proof are clear.

I ignore no facts. I simply demand physical evidence before I acknowledge it to be a fact. And these discussions have clearly shown that's a far higher standard then what has been used by orthodox Egyptology over the past 2 centuries.

I am not influenced by the opinions of others. I am only influenced by the evidence.
It's fascinating that you insist on spewing such a sarcastic perspective when anyone disagrees with you? In my experience, such a disposition is evidence of weak standing. If you have evidence, please present it rather than just insisting it's there.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
