dinachi:
The Op is a well known homosexual promoter. His attacks on the eminent ben carson is because Ben carfson is against homosexuality. If somebody believes that the pryramids were built by Joseph how does that make him less educated. Most history is based on hearsay and are not 100% accurate. My point is that the pyrmids could have other uses apart from just being a place of burial. It may have started as a grain warehouse and was now later converted to tombs when the famine dissipated. ben Carson could be right. Albert Einstein, one of the worlds foremost physicsts was are laghed at because of some of his theories till he proved them,
"A known homosexuality promoter" Hmmm.. i've been called so many things but this is quite new, anyways, i'm happy my name registers in your memory, that said, let me take care of your bullshit. First of all, Ben carson is an idiott and you appear to be too by trying to fund a way to justify this rubbish! This is not even the argument. The Egyptians write within the pyramids, through the herographics and stated exactly what these places are meant for. Apparently you and carson know more about the pyramids than those who built it. Supporters of this man should just admit they are being sold snake oil. He is not ready for prime time, how did Ben carson in the republican party come about? Because he insulted obama at the national prayer breakfast. Republicans hate for obama fueled this man into the presidential race but as facts of his rubbish emerge as they are now, that fuel will run out.

Ben Carson still thinks Joseph built pyramids to store grain

Ben Carson might need a history lesson.

The 2016 Republican front-runner said in a 1998 commencement speech that he thought the Great Pyramids of Giza were built by Joseph, the figure in the Bible, to store grains — not to bury the Pharaohs, as historians and archaeologists have widely concluded.

“My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain,” Carson said during the speech at Andrews University, a school that is associated with the Seventh Day Adventist Church. “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,” he is seen saying in the video of speech, which was first reported on by Buzzfeed.

“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,” added Carson, who, according to several recent national polls, is the front-runner in the race for the 2016 GOP nomination. “And various 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.”

Archaeologists widely agree the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids as tombs for their Pharaohs.

That, however, hasn’t convinced Carson to back away from the view, which he expressed 17 years ago.

"It is still my belief, yes," Carson told CBS News Thursday when asked about the speech.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump, Carson’s main competitor for the nomination, was quick to take aim at the former doctor for the speech, calling it “strange.”


David Zalubowski/AP
“I think I’ll have to put that into my repertoire when I talk about Ben,” the outspoken billionaire said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “That was a strange — that was a strange deal. I learn a lot by watching your show, folks.”

Carson, however, wasn't done.

Later Thursday, Carson, in an interview with Fusion, suggested that transgender people should have their own bathrooms.

“It is not fair for them to make everybody else uncomfortable,” Carson said of transgender people. “It’s one of the things that I don’t particularly like about the LGBT movement. I think everybody has equal rights, but I’m not sure that anybody should have extra rights — extra rights when it comes to redefining everything for everybody else and imposing your view on everybody else.”

The comments aren't the first time the retired pediatric neurosurgeon has ignited controversy with something he said.

Carson has, over the past several years, said he wouldn’t support a Muslim President, compared Obamacare to slavery, claimed Jews in Europe could have avoided the Holocaust if they had been armed, and alleged that “straight” people who enter prison exit “gay.”

what a shameless defense! Look at the useless right wing sites you are spouting in your defense, funny you did'nt include brief Bart or redstates.com, even the campaign has admitted the story was not true! The general he claims have met never remembers such meeting. So whatever you right wingers and Ben shapiro have as your defense is pure BS. And once again! The campaign admitted it so this defense can't get more stupid than it already is.

Ben carson is a disgrace! This is a lesson to everyone about greed and envy! Here is a retired accomplished doctor who could have lived the rest of his life in peace and honour and as a inspiration to many around the world including nigeria, rather jealousy led him to insult obama and seek to become president saying all sorts of outlandish things, now look at him today, all his lies in his books and profile are being exposed and sooner or later, he will drop out of the presidential race and will leave empty handed. No dignity, no presidency, no integrity.......GIFTED hands will becomes EMPTY hands.

Ben Carson Caught In Big Lie About West Point Scholarship

Ben Carson has been caught in a lie so huge his campaign can't even spin it, instead having to just admit that yes, it's an outright lie.

Ben Carson’s campaign on Friday admitted, in a response to an inquiry from POLITICO, that a central point in his inspirational personal story was fabricated: his application and acceptance into the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

The academy has occupied a central place in Carson’s tale for years. According to a story told in Carson’s book, “Gifted Hands,” the then-17 year old was introduced in 1969 to Gen. William Westmoreland, who had just ended his command of U.S. forces in Vietnam, and the two dined together. That meeting, according to Carson’s telling, was followed by a “full scholarship” to the military academy.

West Point, however, has no record of Carson applying, much less being extended admission.

“In 1969, those who would have completed the entire process would have received their acceptance letters from the Army Adjutant General,” said Theresa Brinkerhoff, a spokeswoman for the academy. She said West Point has no records that indicate Carson even began the application process. “If he chose to pursue (the application process) then we would have records indicating such,” she said.

When presented with this evidence, Carson’s campaign conceded the story was false.

In the word of Rick Perry, "Oops."

Anthony enahoro was the first Nigerian to raise the motion for independence from the British at a lagos conference in the 1950's but our subservient northern comrades pushed against it which earned them stoning and booing in lagos, sometime later greater violence was matted out to southern delegates who went to kano for the second leg of the conference as retaliation for what was done to northern delegates in lagos. Violence which we now know today as the "kano riots"...with all this early warning signs, we went ahead to create a nation and wonder today why we are such a disjointed bigoted mess.

He didn't weaken anything? Democrats are known for dialogue and covert operations while Republicans are known to be offensive when need arises. I see a Republican winning the next general election.

Putin is already presiding over a week economy, so its not about throwing bombs indiscriminately. He has to understand that economy and war has direct relationship. He is just acting up to be reckoned with.



actually, he has. Democrats are known for diplomacy but when u.s interest and prestige is challenged democrat presidents like bill Clinton, FDR, JFK, LBJ never retreated. The Cuban missile crisis which was the greatest face off in world history happened under democrats john kennedy.

Obama has a deep seated philosophical objection to military action and he believes he was elected to end the wars in iraq and afganistan, not to start one in Syria for his successor to inherit. This has made America seem weak in the eyes of the world after years of bravado foreign policy. Now, history might judge obama right for preserving the u.s from another war after 10 years of wars and 18 trillion in debt. But the fact now is that their is a vacuum of power in the world, and the opportunist, putin. Is taking great advantage of it, weather it makes or mare him is get to be seen.
