Then you'll need to have an explanation for the C14 dates arrived at from carbon-containing samples of mortar taken from the Great Pyramid (and other
sites at Giza) which puts it at about 2600 BC or so.
I don't have an explanation no, mostly because as far as I am aware they have not carbon dated any mortar at all, mainly because motor is ground up
rock and cannot be carbon dated, now they have carbon dated burnt charcoal from the local area which they PRESUME was used to make the mortar, however
they did this by examining other sites they presume were built at the same time as the pyramids, see here
You'll also need to explain the indisputably Egyptian glyphs found in sealed areas of the Great Pyramid (and other pyramids) as well as the glyphs
found by the robot exploring in the shafts that end in the Queen's Chamber. These are far enough up into the shaft that nobody could have painted
them on except if it was done during construction.
There is only one hidden area in the great pyramid where hieroglyphics were discovered, in somewhat dubious circumstances. There were NO hieroglyphs
found in the shafts, there were marking but they were not Egyptian Hieroglyphs. As for other pyramids, I do believe they were copies the Egyptians
made because of teh great pyramid inspired them
Egyptian glyphs = Egyptian Civilization. There's no evidence for any earlier civilization there, and we do have evidence indicating that
hieroglyphics were invented by the Egyptians, and not learned from some earlier culture.
Hieroglyphs argument is invalid to me, and I would say the great pyramid its self is proof of an earlier civilisation. But hey if you want to base
your dating of the great pyramid on early Napoleonic archaeologists who were using the bible as a dating method, that's fine by me
