The sad part of media coverage about Ben Carson and the pyramids - it shows how little people know about the story.
Why did Joseph have Egypt store grain?
The Pharoah had a dream of seven years of plenty followed by seven years of famine.
The years wouldn't wait for a large capital campaign to build enormous grain storage structures.
Pharoah had the dream before the first of the seven good years so food could be set aside - for Egypt and others nearby.
Like the rest of Joseph's family.
Pyramids are nice, but doubtful could be built quick enough to help a famine coming now.
The media could easily offer skepticism that sticks if they paid attention to their Bible stories.
