While I agree that these theories are borderline goofy (although nothing can be flat ruled out because we don't know what the GP was truly used for), you can't in one instance imply this is nonsense while going all-in on the god-king tomb theory, either, because I've seen enough evidence that at least tells me that the GP was used for something other than burial, but I'm not yet convinced concerning the "what for."
Either that, or this god-king was so ironically liked by his nation that he got the biggest tomb with no inscriptions to help him into the afterlife.

The size and geometry of the pyramid would contain most of the blast from a hydrogen explosion or prompt moderated criticality. This is probably a better design than any current nuclear reactor. I think it was primarily used for electrical energy production.
