It's Not Ben Carson's Personal Theory! Roman Catholics Like Gregory of Tours Held That Pyramids Built By Joseph To Store Grain Well before Carson Came Along!
Now when the seven years of the plenty that had been in Egypt were past: The seven years of scarcity, which Joseph had foretold, began to come: and the famine prevailed in the whole world, but there was bread in all the land of Egypt. And when there also they began to be famished, the people cried to Pharao for food. And he said to them: Go to Joseph: and do all that he shall say to you. And the famine increased daily in all the land: and Joseph opened all the barns, and sold to the Egyptians: for the famine had oppressed them also. And all provinces came into Egypt, to buy food, and to seek some relief of their want. And Jacob hearing that food was sold in Egypt, said to his sons: Why are ye careless? I have heard that wheat is sold in Egypt: go ye down, and buy us necessaries, that we may live, and not be consumed with want. So the ten brethren of Joseph went down, to buy corn in Egypt: Whilst Benjamin was kept at home by Jacob, who said to his brethren: Lest perhaps he take any harm in the journey. And they entered into the land of Egypt with others that went to buy. For the famine was in the land of Chanaan. And Joseph was governor in the land of Egypt, and corn was sold by his direction to the people. And when his brethren had bowed down to him, And he knew them, he spoke as it were to strangers somewhat roughly, asking them: Whence came you? They answered: From the land of Chanaan, to buy necessaries of life. Gn xli-xliiJust to set the record straight: The Pyramids were built by Joseph to store grain. Roman Catholics always held to this view, regardless of what the majority of present day Catholic morons in the pews hold today. Today's Catholic are lead around by the nose by godless Science and they suffer for it, and now we have evangelical heretics claiming ideas for their very own that faithful Catholics once held way back then. Ben Carson is an example of this.
Here is Gregory of Tours
"Joseph built granaries of wonderful workmanship made of square stones and cement. They are constructed in such a way that they are very broad at the base but narrow at the top, so that corn could be poured into them through a small aperture. These granaries are still to be seen to this day." Gregory of Tours (d 594 A.D.)
Here is Ben Carson:
“My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain. 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.”
Ben Carson is a protestant heretic - his church is man made founded within the last 150 years or so. Like typical heretics these locust take for themselves what belongs to the Roman Catholic Church.
Maybe Carson really doesn't think that this is his own theory but that he just failed to give credit where credit is due and he being the slick heretic that he is didn't want to scandalize his heretical audience by claiming that this theory that the Pyramids were built by Joseph to store grain! That bombshell would have alienated his 7th Day Adventist audience.
