Ben Carson thinks Charles Darwin was encouraged by SATAN?
« on: September 24, 2015, 10:09:19 PM »
With Ben Carson gaining on Donald Trump at the top of the polls in the Republican presidential race, the more, shall we say, interesting public comments he's made in his past are seeping out. It's proving that there are multiple kinds of intelligence, and being by all accounts a brilliant neurosurgeon doesn't necessarily reflect a solid intellectual grasp on reality.

For example, the big bang theory is a "fairy tale" spread by "high-faluting scientists," and evil lurks behind the theory of evolution.

    "So now you're gonna have this big explosion and everything becomes perfectly organized and when you ask them about it they say, "Well we can explain this, based on probability theory because if there's enough big explosions, over a long period of time, billions and billions of years, one of them will be the perfect explosion," continued Carson. "So I say what you're telling me is if I blow a hurricane through a junkyard enough times over billions and billions of years, eventually after one of those hurricanes there will be a 747 fully loaded and ready to fly." […]

    Later, Carson said he personally believed Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution was encouraged by the devil. [...]

    "Amazingly, there are a significant number of scientists who do not believe it but they're afraid to say anything," Carson added, saying he would be writing a book, "The Organ of Species," that shows how the organs of the body refute evolution.

As a matter of fact, Carson has written books, though apparently not this one. For a fun read, check out that link, and how pregnant women are a lot like Michael Vick with his dogs. What a charmer.

Carson's deeper thoughts on how the world works, on morality, on existence do kind of answer one burning question about Carson—how in the hell he thinks he should be president. He's so steeped in magical, black and white thinking, so sure of his interpretation of the "Word of God" that he's probably never questioned his own qualifications.

Carson actually said this, and it can be easily verified.

Charles Darwin was influenced by Satan.

This strikes me as the sort of statement a doofus might make.

Kind of along the lines of 57 states in America, you mean?

How does that make Carson smarter to say that?

Everyone knows that Obama was talking about attending a total of 57 primaries and caucuses combined, as some states had both,


A presidential candidate that thinks that Charles Darwin made up Evolution on orders from SATAN. now there is a  a dumb remark.

No.

I see a difference between concocting and accepting.

The POINT is that Carson claims to believe that Charles Darwin was bewitched by Satan into inventing a false Theory of Evolution.

Witchcraft. Do we want to be ;led some buffoon that believes in devils and demons?

Per your parameters, ANY Christian, which includes Obama, is believing in devils & demons.  Not a problem, when you consider how many people are bewitched by Satan.  I'd definitely prefer someone bewitched by Christ, so long as they function like any other similar Christian President.  Carson has given us no indication, what-so-ever, that he'd try to rule as a theocracy.  Quite the opposite in fact

This defines a buffoon?

If most of us are so defined shouldn't we want representation in government?

Carson has a tendency to talk himself into a corner.

If Christ can bewitch people, then Christ must be a witch as well.


Evolution is a logical explanation for how it is we all came to be here.

The tale involving  the entire human race being damned for all eternity for taking bad culinary advice from a talking snake is a lot less convincing.

Your lack of faith is duly noted. ..... not to mention that we've had a plethora of Christian and Catholic presidents in the past, and currently,  without our country falling into a theocracy
