Exciting news from Egypt for Ben Carson

Researchers in Egypt have turned up some exciting news.

Egypt on Saturday said there is a 90% chance that hidden chambers will be found within King Tutankhamun’s tomb, based on the preliminary results of a new exploration of the 3,300-year-old mausoleum.

Researchers say the discovery of a new chamber could shine new light on one of ancient Egypt’s most turbulent times, and one prominent researcher has theorized that the remains of Queen Nefertiti might be inside.

British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves theorizes that Tutankhamun, better known as King Tut, who died at the age of 19, may have been rushed into an outer chamber of what was originally Nefertiti’s tomb. Famed for her beauty, Nefertiti was the subject of a famous 3,300-year-old bust.

Reeves reached his theory after high-resolution images discovered what he said were straight lines in King Tut’s tomb. These lines, previously hidden by color and the stones’ texture, indicate the presence of a sealed chamber, he said. The images were later broadcast live on national television last September.

Why is this exciting news for Carson? Because he no doubt hopes that they will find grain in those sealed chambers thus supporting his theory, based on stories in the Bible, that the pyramids were built to store grain and not as tombs for pharaohs as has long been established by archeologists. But who do you believe, pointy-headed scientists or the Bible?

Carson, who has recently been experiencing a steady decline in the polls, has gone to Jordan to try and refute the idea that he is an ignoramus about world events and is now no doubt an expert in that area too. He has been visiting with refugees from the Syrian conflict and although he continues to oppose any of them being settled in the US, he says that they don’t want to come here anyway, so that’s alright.

No doubt he inspired the refugees with stories from his own life and told them that he would not have wimped out and run away like they did but would have used the knife and hammer and rocks that he carries around to fight them.

    … who do you believe, pointy-headed scientists or the Bible?

    At least in the KJ version, the word “pyramid” does not appear in the Judeo-Christian bible.

    One might almost think the people who wrote it had never set foot in Egypt, nor talked to anyone who had.

    That is true but for people like Carson, any tomb used for storing grain will be taken as evidence that the Bible story is true.

    The Bible story says that Joseph was the guy who set the Pharoah up as supreme dictator of Egypt, by hoarding food, which was used to get the hungry to sell everything to Pharoah, including themselves into slavery.

    I wish, I wish I could be there in person when whatever is there to be discovered is discovered! Untouched, unwitnessed for 3,500 years holy shit that would be a hell of a moment.

    That is interesting. The holes for ear rings are suggestive but I am surprised that more has not been made of it earlier. Or it may have and I just did not know about it since I do not follow it closely.

    Please tell me that Geraldo Rivera will be nowhere near the site if/when it’s opened.
    Also, Mano, do you know why this site will not allow me to logon using Google+? I have to logon to someone else’s blog site and then go back to yours to leave a comment. None of the other blogs on Freethought have given me an issue. Just yours. Not a big deal, just a small hassle. Thanks, and keep up the good work
