Egyptian antiquities officials scoff at pyramid claims by presidential candidate Ben Carson

I always find discussions on ancient history or biblical discussions interesting. I honestly didn’t hear presidential candidates Ben Carson’s full statement as to what was said about the pyramids but I believe he is partially right. I wouldn’t say that all pyramids were used for grain storage and it appears that he was speaking of the 3 great pyramids. Many people in this day and time only assume what those pyramids were used for and of course there were tombs in the shape of a pyramid used for burial place for pharaohs.

I do believe in the story of Joseph of the bible and that their were structures built to store grain during the 7 years of famine. People even compare the similarity of Imhotep and Joseph. In the video below you can see what some believe is the storage place for the grain in Egypt during Joseph’s reign. See at 3:50 or watch the whole video!

Carson says: “My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids in order to store grain.” He was referring to the Old Testament story of Joseph predicting famine and advising the pharaoh to store surplus food. Read the complete article here!
