Dr. Ben Carson Embarrasses Himself and the Medical Profession

The "Adversary" Dr. Carson speaks of in the video is religious term for "Satan."

Kindly Dr. Ben Carson, who wants to be the leader of the free world, calls Evolution "political correctness," and then says Darwin was under the influence of Satan when he wrote about it.  We understand candidates tell half truths and even lie when they run for president, but this nonsense coming from a supposed "man of science" is inexplicable. There isn't a "significant number of scientists" who do not "believe" in Evolution; that's a lie:

"...98% of scientists connected to the American Association for the Advancement of Science say they believe that humans evolved over time..."

Carson's statement on Sir Isaac Newton is simplistic:

Isaac Newton on Religion Isaac Newton (1642-1727) was a deeply religious person who wrote far more words on religion than he did on science. 

Early on, as an undergraduate at Trinity College Cambridge, he wrote a list of sins, itself a mark of his religious convictions. Many of these since relate to his non-attendance at church on Sunday. 

At some point he moved away from the orthodox (conventional) thinking of the Church of England and became a radical heretic, denying that Jesus Christ shared any essential characteristics of God. Because he denied the existence of the Holy Trinity that was believed by all orthodox Catholics and Protestants, Newton's position is characterized as antitrinitarian. Because there were severe legal and social penalties for holding such beliefs, he was forced to keep his views quiet and they became known only after he had died.

Carson's statement on Albert Einstein is not true:

So what did Einstein have to say in his letters about God?

"In a book titled Albert Einstein, the Human Side: New Glimpses from His Archives by Helen Dukas and Banesh Hoffman, the authors quoted another letter Einstein wrote in 1954:… 

"It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it." 

Another letter:

“I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one,” he wrote to a man who corresponded with him on the subject twice in the 1940s.

“You may call me an agnostic, but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist. … I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being.” 

Nice try, Dr. Carson, at perpetuating a falsehood about Einstein, but it only took a second to Google your statement and find out it is pure horsecrap.

Here's another one of Dr. Carson's lies: (Remember during the last GOP debate how he giggled after being questioned about his support for this charlatan business that claims to cure prostate cancer with tree bark? Yeah. Kindly Dr. Ben "America is Just Like Nazi Germany" Carson shilled for that company, and lied about it at the recent GOP debate)  :

Ben Carson caught on video claiming Mannatech supplement magically cured his prostate cancer

Even his top staffer knows Kindly Dr. Ben is a liar:

Top Staffer Acknowledges Ben Carson Had 'Contract' With Supplement Maker

What's the point? 

The right wingers have been screeching about the Hildabeast and her lies, yet they're silent about this guy's weird, almost pathological ability to make stuff up and tell amazing whoppers. I guess it's not lying when their candidates lie. Isn't that cute?

The reality is that Dr. Carson is an outlier where science and rationality are concerned. He'll never be president because the American people do not want their country represented by a koo-koo bananas weirdo.

Remember how the TeaPublicans made so much over Barry Soetoro's childhood (4 years) in Southeast Asia going to school at a madrassa? Yeah. They used that as proof that he's a Mooslim.

Now comes Kindly Dr. Ben Carson to admit to the world that as a teenager (older than what Barry was when he attended the madrassa), Kindly Dr. Ben Carson wanted to KILL PEOPLE, STAB PEOPLE!  Will the weenies on the right loose their marbles over this self-confessed wannabe thug? Noooooooo!  He's their Blah. Anything in his past is fine, even his confessing that he acted like a street thug.

Now go read his koo-koo bananas supporters tell everyone how scared we are of him, just like we were scared of koo-koo bananas Sarah Palin.

Dr. Ben is a kindly soul close to his god and master
his faith shall show the nation the way.
Into confusion and darkness he shall plunge us all
as he leads us into the hereafter.

Not surprising. The Baggers are hypocrites. Hillary's a liar, but Carson is a Tea Party Blah, so his lies are okay. You're correct Carson will never be president, America does dumb things but it's not so dumb that they'll elect a goofball like Carson.

Dumbasses are attracted to dumbasses. Carson will soon be toast. And he'll giggle about it after he denounces the political correctness of being an embarrassing loser.

Jerry Critter said...

Dr. Carson is an embarrament to the American political system. Wait a minute. The American political system is an embarrament unto itself.

Oh be nice, Shaw.
It was a simple misunderstanding.

"Williams defended his boss, suggesting that while Carson did have a relationship to the company, the retired neurosurgeon didn't realize all of the details of his endorsement up front and wanted out of the deal."
--- CNN

I bet he even returned the checks (LOL).

And everyone remembers Newton's religious writings rather than the laws of motion.

The fundies in the Iowa caucuses love this stuff. I bet he carries Iowa.

You know what's funny? The Republicans smearing Obama for these past seven years for his youthful indisgressionns and now we learn from Carsons own mouth that he tried to kill someone with a knife. Do you suppose that will generate any outrage from the holier than thou hypocrites on the right? Obama smoked some weed when he was a kid, but "kindly" dr. Carson tried to kill someone? The more the doc talks the more we learn what a nut he is.

All hail the penis electric! The organ of species! Something that we all can grasp on to!

Do we really need anymore evidence to show that Carson is off his Metamucil ? Evolution is the work of the Devil? Einstein believed in God? A great number of scientists don't believe in Evolution? Jeebus H. Crackers. Why do the Baggers keep supporting idiots like this? Is it because they're as dumb as the guy who's talking dumb talk? He was a brain surgeon? I wouldn't let him carve my Sunday rump roast let alone my child's brain. He's more than koo-koo bananas, it appears he's suffering from some malady. And yes, he lied about his relationship with the quack vitamein company that claimed it could cure prostate cancer with tree bark, and he, a physician, put his stamp of approval on it by claiming it could cure his prostate cancer -- which btw, he had removed by surgery. Want to know more about it? Read this.

What's disturbing is Carson's complete lack of critical thinking skills. He may know a lot about wiring the brain, but he's a damn fool and science ignorant on every other subject.
