Ben Carson: Evolution Is An Absurd Myth, ‘Give Me A Break’

REALLY? Is this the best the Right can do in 2015? -OEN

 

In a “Faith & Liberty” interview posted last week, potential GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson discussed his rejection of the theory of evolution, arguing that the science of evolution is a sign of humankind’s arrogance and belief “that 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. You don’t need a God if you consider yourself capable of explaining everything.”

He claimed that “no one has the knowledge” of the age of the earth “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.”

And they’re driving inmate populations skyward by corrupting the political process.

Critics say he is innocent and is being punished because his uncle is a prominent religious leader and human rights activist, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr – who was also sentenced to death in 2014.

Inspection- Standing My Ground on Abortion

by Ken Carman


  I don’t believe in forced birth, via the state, anymore than I believe in forced abortion.
  Yes, I believe people should think twice before they have sex, just like I believe they should think twice when getting married. But I wouldn’t ban divorce anymore than I would outright ban abortion. Both are, however, choices one should have, with certain limits, those limits providing as wide latitude as possible so “equal protection” applies to most folks. Otherwise the morality lectures, the melodrama, belong in our churches, our families: not in our laws. Read more
