The readers comments are better than the new theory.

I love the idea that it might have been a giant trampoline. :-)

It was built by Charles Dawson.



Just don't ask Ben Carson, who believes the Egyptian pyramids were for
storing grain, as well as that he can become US president.


It must be true. It says so in the bible :-)


Right, he's simply a man of conviction. People believe in all kinds of
things. Like the pharoahs who built those tombs thought they were
going to another place. Every where you look, people have convictions
unsupported by or even contradictory to evidence; most of them
segregate these from the rest of their lives. Carson's brain surgeries
weren't affected by his biblical convictions, for example. There are
no public policies that would result from them.

Constrast this with politicians who hold to new religion beliefs and
never rest to implement their convinctions with statist means, because
they think they are doing right and are more intelligent and wise than
their subjects. I am far more concerned about them.

What I would be more interested in about Ben Carson, is how travelled
he is, which is pertinent to this newsgroup. I've found my travels to
be very illuminating, and would prefer the next present to have
travelled widely. So does anyone know what travel the candidates have
made?

Hillary Clinton certainly must be most traveled!

Doesn't matter, Carson's poll numbers have dropped. The fundamentalists
are glomming onto Cruz now.

You must have missed the fantasy pronouncements of Carson and others.

Carson doesn't lie it is in the bible, so it must be true. :-)

BTW How old does Carson think the Earth is?


Carson is old news now. His numbers are dropping.

Really couldn't have been his remarks about the pyramids that killed his
support, could it?

Putin endorses the current Republican favourite. That would be the kiss of death
anywhere else.


And Trump is so stupid he brags about Putin liking him.

I didn't know that, but I could have guessed.

It's only a matter of time before we have photos of both of them stripped to the
waist mud wrestling each other. Bleaah!

Watch out for black helicopters Erilar and do have a nice Christmas in Cuba!


Who's in Cuba? And I find conspiracy stories funny or boring. I do really
like the mud-wrestling suggestion 8-)

Carson's credibility has no effect on a comparison of Trump and Clinton.

I doubt it. Trump says things just as outrageous, AND claims the next
day he didn't say it, yet his numbers don't drop.
