#BenAndJesus: Biblical proof of Egyptian grain silos revealed

I agree that Ben Carson is getting a bum rap on the West Point and stabbing incident "debunkings," but his belief that the Biblical Joseph built the pyramids of Egypt to store grain seems genuine - and quite troubling, if not that unusual.
What we can conclude about Carson is that he is not systematically following a valid intellectual process in forming his beliefs. He has no problem dismissing the opinion of experts and scientists, and substituting his own poorly-informed hunches. Obviously this is a disturbing trait in someone running for high office.

Now The Guardian brings us a photo tour of his home with a painting of Ben and Jesus, by the Biblical Joseph I presume? After touring the grain silos? Or given the scrubs and terry cloth bathrobe, perhaps it was painted after a physical exam? Pretty creepy any way you look at it.
