Carson: Pyramids Used as Grain Silos


ben carsonBen Carson on Wednesday reaffirmed his belief that ancient pyramids in Egypt were used to store grain rather than for pharoah tombs.

When asked if he still believed the pyramid theory he outlined in a 1998 commencement speech, Carson told CBS News, “It’s still my belief, yes.”

BuzzFeed posted the speech Carson delivered at Andrews University, a college founded by Seventh-day Adventists. “My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain,” he said. “Now all the archaeologists think that they were made for the pharoahs’ 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.” Read more at CBS News.



  1. A brain surgeon at Johns Hopkins is unquestionably a brilliant man with an IQ a lot higher than my own. Despite this, Dr. Carson clearly has a couple of cuckoos flying around in his attic.

  2. All this nonsense “questions” are only meant to make the black Republican look bad or stupid. The left wing media would NEVER ask such questions of their guy, Hillary Clinton. And try to tell me there is no bias in the hateful media.

  3. Sure the leftist media tries to make him look like a fool, but he and his staff should not be cooperating, at least not that much.

    Nobody asked him a “nonsense question”. He made the statement himself in his own speech at a college commencement ceremony. Try reading the article.

  5. ” he and his staff should not be cooperating”

    He is his own worst enemy. After his stupid comment on gun control and the Holocaust, he doubled down rather than backing off. After he announced he wanted to end Medicare, he sort of backed off but can’t articulate what he wants to say he really meant. And then he claims he wasn’t shilling for a disreputable supplement manufacturer that had been sued by no less a figure than the right wing extremist then-Attorney General and now Governor of Texas Greg Abbott, he didn’t back down even though there are videos all over the web of him doing just that.

    The amazing thing is that he is getting more than 0.01% in the polls.
