Everyone seems to have a unnaturally strongly vested interest in most things related to the pyramids and their building. Frankly I can entertain almost any ideas except "they mustta used ramps" or they mustta just about anything. So long as no data are being gathered it makes every theory little more than an hypothesis.
Forensic testing is something that's painfully obvious that should be done and it's something that might prove RVT theory almost immediately. It probably can't disprove any theory but it might certainly prove one. How do we know if we don't look. Why aren't we looking. What are we afraid of finding.
Everyone seems to be skeptical except of his own ideas. There are axe shavings everywhere and no data with which to work.
This is no way to run a real science. This is how people can maintain superstitions and beliefs founded on thin air.
