Big theories require big evidence, and unfortunately for the mainstream "Egyptologists" theory, it lacks substance.
Its very easy to say some egotistical maniac called "Khufu" subjugated thousands of men with ramps and copper chisels to build a gigantic monument to him as a tomb, the theory has no substance given the fact that the sarcophagus within the great pyramid contains no mummified remains or any engravings that would stand out to support a theory that it was a burial coffin for an egotistical maniac the so called "Khufu" who after all his so called exploits of subjugating thousands of men with copper tools and ramps, decided his sarcophagus would look bland and have no engravings, hardly a fitting tribute for an egotistical maniac who subjugated thousands according to the theory.
The sarcophagus alludes to something else entirely, it alludes to being a place for ritual and ceremonial spiritual endeavours that are related to knowledge and understanding of the cosmos. To say that the "Great Pyramid" was designed as a tomb for an egotistical maniac, would be an insult to its designers and constructors who envisioned something far more meaningful and important than just a tomb.
That looks fake by the way, as if someone tried to modify it or graffiti it. It is a known fact that plundering, bribery, and other criminal acts were rampant during the 1800's, it was not exactly a time of reputable characters.
That graffiti has for a long time now been suspected to be a forgery. For a start it's the only example of any writing or artwork in the pyramid and it was discovered by Howard Vyse who was a highly ambitious treasure seeking vandal with little integrity.
Bearing in mind the fact that we associate the Egyptians with prolific artwork describing in high detail their culture, religion and leadership does it make sense that there is absolutely nothing (genuine) inside the GP?
To some it makes absolutely perfect sense.
