Biblical Plagiarism

The sage, savant, and scholar Paul Pearson, my friend, has a new blog (https://pearsonally.com) that I recently commented on in brief concerning Ben Carson 1. Carson, currently Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and neurosurgeon and devout Seventh Day Adventist is a biblical literalist who has no knowledge of ancient pre-Biblical or biblical languages, yet pontificates on a wide range of Bible myths concerning ancient Egypt (soundly pointed out by Pearson).
