Ben Carson and the Pyramids: One Weird Notion

In a college commencement speech that he gave 17 years ago, Dr. Ben Carson had said that the pyramids were built for grain storage. Here are some of his current comments on the topic:

“My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain,” Carson said in taped remarks first reported by Buzzfeed on Wednesday. “Now all the  archaeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs’ graves.

In a later interview, Carson said the following:

“The pyramids were made in a way that they had hermetically sealed compartments. You wouldn’t need hermetically sealed compartments for a sepulcher. You would need that if you were trying to preserve grain for a long period of time.”
