Ben Carson's unusual theory about pyramids ("It's still my belief, yes.")
CBS News ^

Posted on 11/04/2015 8:18:58 PM PST by springwater13

NAPLES, Florida -- Ben Carson stood by his long-held belief about ancient pyramids in Egypt, that they were used to store grain, rather than to inter pharaohs.

Asked about this Wednesday, Carson told CBS News, "It's still my belief, yes."

The subject came up when Buzzfeed published a 1998 commencement speech delivered by Carson at Andrews University, a college founded by Seventh-day Adventists.

"My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain," Carson said. "Now all the archeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs' graves. But, you know, it would have to be something awfully big if you stop and think about it. And I don't think it'd just disappear over the course of time to store that much grain."

I am astounded.

I'm well aware that brain surgeons do not have quite the same course of study as archaeologists and historians do, but...I mean...c'mon.

This is juvenile.

This is basic stupidity.

We are well and truly screwed if this idiot somehow gains the nomination.

The real question is if Pharaohs went to temple on Saturday or Sunday.

Brain surgeons of the caliber of Ben Carson have no business running for president. They are many steps above any politician.

“Japanese and French experts are investigating a new mystery at the 4,000-year-old pyramids — why the pharaohs built geometrical cavities inside the Great Pyramid of Cheops and filled them with mineral-enriched sifted sand.
.....

“From the outside, the pyramid appears to be built of solid blocks of limestone. But two French architects, Gilles Dormion and Jean Patrice Goidin, discovered cavities which could total 15 to 20 per cent of the structure.

.....

“The French team used an instrument which measures differences in gravity to find the internal spaces. They then drilled small holes through the 1.0-metre blocks and found sand — but not ordinary sand from the nearby desert.

“Laboratory tests showed it came from another part of Egypt and was sifted and enriched with minerals before being placed inside the pyramid by the ancient architects.”

Well, I guess it MIGHT be better to have a sponge stuck in the brain than say Marco Rubio as the nominee.

They read some hieroglyphics foretelling the rise of Obama and died laughing.
