So the above is Ben Carson giving the 1998 commencement speech at Andrews University, a school with ties to the Seventh Day Adventists church.
Now the part you want to hone in on is at the 3:45 mark, where Carson shares this:
In the speech -- given at Andrews University, a school with ties to Carson's Seventh-day Adventist faith -- the neurosurgeon shot down claim that aliens had built the pyramids. But he also disagreed with the archaeological consensus that the pyramids were constructed as tombs for the pharaohs.
“My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain,” Carson said. “Now all the archaeologists 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," Carson said. "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.”
So Carson argues that the Biblical character Joseph built the pyramids based on his reading of the Bible, and of course his own theories which were apparently pulled directly out of his ass.
So after this video came to light CBS News asked Carson if he continued to stand by this "theory:"
Asked about this Wednesday, Carson told CBS News, "It's still my belief, yes."
Need I mention that Carson is still running neck and neck with Trump for the GOP nomination?
Perhaps I should also mention that not only is there no evidence that the Biblical Joseph built the pyramids, there is no evidence of the existence of Joseph himself, and then of course there's this:
Yeah, nothing frightening about that.
