Carson Confirms He Believes Pyramids Were Built To Store Grain

Carson Confirms He Believes Pyramids Were Built To Store Grain | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Dr. Ben Carson on Wednesday night confirmed his belief that the pyramids in Egypt were built for grain storage by Joseph, the Biblical figure who helped the Egyptians survive famine, even though archaeologists have concluded that the pyramids were built as tombs for the pharaohs.

"My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain," Carson said in a 1998 speech surfaced by Buzzfeed News on Wednesday. "Now all the archeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs’ gra
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Egypt’s Chaos Stirs Musical Revolution

Egypt’s Chaos Stirs Musical Revolution | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Egypt’s rising-star rappers predated the revolution that ousted President Hosni Mubarak, but the turmoil since has left a huge youth population searching for voices that address issues they care about.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Music is one of the most powerful communication devices. Coupled with mass media and the Internet, it can help shape societies -- for good or ill. There is always a mix of the musician's world view and his/her personal goals. This is fascinating stuff.

Music can be deafening, relaxing, energizing, upbeat and downbeat. It is a univeral mode of communication that can be channeled in all directions for multiple purposes. Life without music? Can't imagine it!

Ancient Priest's Tomb Painting Discovered Near Great Pyramid at Giza

Ancient Priest's Tomb Painting Discovered Near Great Pyramid at Giza | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
A wall painting, dating back over 4,300 years, has been discovered in a tomb located just east of the Great Pyramid of Giza. The painting shows vivid scenes of life, including boats sailing south on the Nile River, a bird hunting trip in a marsh and a man named Perseneb who's shown with his wife and dog. While Giza is famous for its pyramids, the site also contains fields of tombs that sprawl to the east and west of the Great Pyramid. The new painting was discovered in 2012 by a team from the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, which has been excavating these tombs since 1996.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Amazing, after all these years more wonders from ancient Egypt. Love archeology.
