Scholars already date KuFu as 2600s BC and therefore of course when obtaining
a 3800 BC date, they will presume the pyramid was built in 2600 BC
with 1200-year old mortar ingredients. Unfortunately, they won't even permit the
Bible to have so much as a 200-year ingredient in the pyramids without
scoffing the date discrepency. Scholars are specifically biased to defy that Bible.
