> It's what the egyptologists do.
No one should lose sight of the fact that Egyptologists have no evidence for their ideas about the nature and facts of the ancient culture. Everything they believe is a construct founded on interpretation of almost no evidence whatsoever.
This construct has failed in 150 years to answer even the simplest questions about the reality of the pyramids or their features. They use the exact same answer to every single question; "It is a religious function that can only be understood by reading the following books".
It's obvious that any theory that can't answer even the most basic questions needs to be tossed out on its ear. After 150 years it doesn't matter whether it's right or wrong if it still fails this crucial test. A correct theory that doesn't answer questions is worthless. A correct theory that doesn't answer questions is probably impossible. The assumptions are necessarily in error but Egyptology is married to them.
The time to address the real issues is fast drawing to a close. Their position can become remarkably untenable overnight. This isn't the ancient past or the 19th century any longer and there are tools which can change the game.
