    With the issue of Ben Carson being a Seventh-Day Adventist being raised, it seemed like now was a good time to take another look at the group.

    So, with all the changes, arguments, etc within it, where does the group stand today? Is it still a cult, no longer a cult or a group with some bad theology?

    I think this gives a good statement on the matter.

    It is such an absurd ideal. The interior designs of the pyramids are sure not practical for grain storage.

    Talk about overkill on construction.

    I take all the archeology with big helping of dead sea salt ... but here is most likely what Mr. Carson read ...

    More and more evidence is coming out the Great Pyramid, in example, is in fact older than the previously claimed oldest, smaller pyramids.

    But, that gets into Pre-Adamic, etc. Another topic.

    That could be what Carson was referencing. But, as with the Acadamic claim, not accurate.

    The Step Pyramid was not a storage facility. It was part of a complex of buildings within a wall, as were the referenced pits.

    There are other pyramids built at other times that followed that same pattern.

    Well, how about this?

    The pyramid in question
    Info
    Studies

    Remember the afterlife beliefs concerning Pharaohs, etc. Preserving and protecting their bodies was very important.

    They all share in common their were tombs built to protected against grave robbers and be monuments to their occupants. Many had associated temples.

    Building them for grain storage makes no sense economically, design wise or explains how they all ended up tombs.
