It’s been a tough week for GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson.
First, he faced a serious backlash from Americans after he went on record stating that the president should not be a Muslim, as it went against the beliefs of America as a nation. Now, from speeches revived from 2012, the doctor has also said he doesn’t believe in The Big Bang or Evolution.
It is widely known that he is a Creationist. Taken from a speech titled Celebration of creation, an extract reads:
“I find the big bang, really quite fascinating. I mean, here you have all these highfaluting scientists and they’re saying it was this gigantic explosion and everything came into perfect order. Now these are the same scientists that go around touting the second law of thermodynamics, which is entropy, which says that things move toward a state of disorganization.
“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.”
He continued to discuss the Theory of Evolution, and Darwin’s discovery being created by the devil.
“I personally believe that this theory that Darwin came up with was something that was encouraged by the adversary, and it has become what is scientifically, politically correct,” said Carson.
Do you think that Carson’s views will affect his run for presidency?
