Ben Carson: Evolution is an Absurd Myth, ‘Give Me a Break’
Ben Carson, who conservatives like to laud as “one of the smartest guys in the party,” isn’t just refuting the theory of evolution, he’s annoyed than anyone would even have the audacity to suggest it is true.
In an interview with ‘Faith & Liberty,’ potential presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson said it’s a sign of arrogance that people think “they are so smart that if they can’t explain how God did something, then it didn’t happen.”
“Which of course means that they’re God,” Carson added. “You don’t need a God if you consider yourself capable of explaining everything.”
He went on to claim that “no one has the knowledge” of how old the earth is “based on the Bible,” adding that “carbon dating and all of these things really don’t mean anything to a God who has the ability to create anything at any point in time.”
Carson said that the “complexity of the human brain” is proof that evolution is a myth. “Somebody says that came from a slime pit full of promiscuous biochemical? I don’t think so.”
Speaking about how the eye ball would have developed, Carson exclaimed, “Give me a break. According to their scheme, it had to occur over night, it had to be there. I instead say, if you have an intelligent creator, what he does is give his creatures the ability to adapt to the environment so he doesn’t have to start over every fifty years creating all over again.”
Carson is also very hopeful that God will intervene and “expose the truth” about Obamacare.
“I prayed to God that he will expose even to people of low information what is going on,” Carson said. “Sometimes things have to be so blatant, it’s like hitting them over the head with a two-by-four, before people wake up.”
