Ben Carson: Archaeologists Are Wrong, Pyramids Were Biblical Grain Storages (Video)

ben-carson-quotes-1I’ve maintained for quite a while now that Ben Carson is just too crazy to be president. Even after all these months that he’s been an official presidential candidate, I still don’t get how he’s gained the support that he has. I don’t hesitate for a second to say that I would much rather seen Donald Trump as our next president than Ben Carson. It’s not just that I disagree with him on just about everything, it’s that he’s completely unqualified and unfit to be president.

When I call someone like Ted Cruz “crazy,” it’s mostly hyperbole. When I say I believe Ben Carson is crazy, I legitimately mean it.

Take for instance comments that recently surfaced from 1998 where Carson professed his belief that the pyramids in Egypt weren’t, in fact, built as tombs for pharaohs – but as storages for grain by the biblical character Joseph:

“My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain. 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.

“And when you look at the way that the pyramids are made, with many chambers that are hermetically sealed, they’d have to be that way for various reasons. And various of scientists have said, ‘well, you know there were alien beings that came down and they have special knowledge and that’s how-’ you know, it doesn’t require an alien being when God is with you.”

I’m not even going to bother trying to explain how absolutely asinine his comments are. Ben Carson is either too ignorant to understand the scientific and historic facts about the pyramids, or he simply refuses to believe those facts because he would rather conjure up some ridiculous biblical explanation for why they exist.

Let’s not forget, this is also someone who believes the theory of evolution is derived from the devil and the Earth was literally created in six days.

In my opinion, Ben Carson defines the term “idiot savant.” I have no idea how, with the litany of really stupid Ben Carson quotes that are out there, he managed to become a world-renowned brain surgeon. He doesn’t even seem to grasp reality or understand how the government works.

While I still have my doubts about Carson’s staying power atop the GOP presidential polls, the fact that he even managed to make it to where he has at this stage in the game is a true testament to how ridiculous the Republican party has become.

    And this clown is one of the front runners for the republican nomination.

    But hey, when you live in a party where it is acceptable, expected even, to claim that science is “just an opinion,” then what’s another whacko “personal theory” going to matter, right??

    You clowns want something to talk about? I’ll help you out –

    Dow over 17,000, record corporate profits, 5% growth, best year for jobs since 1999, consumer confidence up, deficit down 60% in 2014, gas prices low, health insurance cheaper than ever ($85/month), car insurance cheaper than ever ($25/month from Insurance Panda), the 1% starting to be taxed more… all while republicans bleated about Benghazi took pointless votes to repeal the ACA, and did nothing for anybody except the top one percent.

    It turns out that Obama is indeed “the adult in the room,” and yes, the Chess Master. HRC will keep it going, any republican will screw it up. Simple as that.

    It looks like reading the bible rots your brain. Storing grain in Egyptian pyramids is silly. Most of the structure is solid.

  • PRIME79

    The pyramids were grain storages? Roflmfao!!! What the fuck?! And these are the people conservatives admire and believe. My goodness. I laugh while I pitty them.

    • Eg Kbbs

      If they were grain storage facilities, wouldn’t they have massive empty areas where they could put the grain ? Not small, sealed rooms which would only hold a little grain but huge open rooms ? And would they take away the area for storing grain by fancy sarcophagi, boats, and all sorts of other mummies and other artifacts ?

      And would Carson explain that, according to Genesis 41, the Pharaoh’s dream only gave them 7 years in which to build facilities and store that grain. So how come the pyramids weren’t built over a 7 year span but over hundreds (if not thousand) years ?

      He’s no Biblical Scholar which makes him especially dangerous. Like his politics, he doesn’t have the foundation for understanding and therefore he can say anything and not see the massive fallacies.

    Although I agree with many of the comments here. The man is outside his realm on most matters. I have listened to many debates and interviews with the Candidates and in my opinion there are only 2 worthy of any chance f a vote and Ben Carson is not even on my ballot. We need a commander in chief not a neurosurgeon. We need a person well rounded in education on a realistic front and understands how the real world works. We do not need another Religious zealot in the Whitehouse to push their idea of religion on the American people and the world. Some replies to the article while attempting to deceive and impress us have failed greatly. Pretty easy to paint a rosy picture of things when you quote Business weekly and Bloomberg which is founded and ran by democrats. You should try actually looking up that information from sources that are not influenced by the Democratic or Republican parties and look more at the independent research which I have found to be a lot more honest over all in their findings and projector of the direction this nation is going. Because when you only look at the Democratic information from a Democratic source you are walking with blinders on

    This all sounds like Ancient Alien theory… Which is interesting enough to listen to, but belief in which should automatically disqualify one from the Presidency…

  • Progressive Republican

    And people thought Daniel Jackson was nuts.

    At least he turned out to be right.

  • Creeayshun Sighuntist

    His response when confronted shows exactly why he will never be President. He believes in the Bible, therefore you cannot question any of his “beliefs” if you do not share his belief system.

    His time is nearly up. Hope he sold a lot of books…..

  • Creeayshun Sighuntist

    I heard Ben Carson claimed he BUILT the pyramids, just before he was accepted to West Point.

  • NINJAfemale

    He truly is clinically delusional. And even that isn’t as not as wicked scary as the fact he’s earned support of any kind.
