According to CNN, Donald Trump has tapped former neurosurgeon and present-day creationist, Seventh-Day Adventist, believer in Satan, global-warming denialist, and flat-out abortion opponent (including in cases of rape or incest) Ben Carson to be his Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. His job? to “oversee federal public housing programs and helps formulate policy on homelessness and housing discrimination.”
Carson may have been a good neurosurgeon, but has no qualifications for such a job. Plus he’s a creationist! I always worry that people who reject evolution—a mandate of Carson’s religion—won’t accept other facts they don’t like, either.
Well, this is in line with Trump’s other disasterious picks. My advice for Carson? Something he should know as a doctor: “First, do no harm.”
By the way, has Trump ever made any statements about whether he accepts evolution?
I believe the Bible. I do believe it is the word of God. I do believe he created heavens and earth. It says in Genesis 1, in the beginning God created heaven and earth. Period. We don’t know how long that period is before he started the rest of creation. It could be a minute. It could be a trillion years. We don’t know. I have never stated that I have an understanding of how old the earth is. That’s something that a lot of people will ascribe to me. [JAC: Jebus, the data are there for all to see!]
Organisms, animals have the ability to adapt to their environment. But the evolutionists say that’s proof positive that evolution occurs.
I say it is evidence of an intelligent God who gave his creatures the ability to adapt to its environment so he wouldn’t have to start over every 50 years.
I’ll leave this here for your enjoyment (or chagrin); notes are from Gawker:
- 0:37 — Humans have big frontal lobes because we, alone, were created in the image of God, who also has a pretty big frontal lobe, you know
- 3:30 — Those who believe in evolution will have less guilt about being cannibals, should the situation arise
- 4:00 — Evolution is scientific political correctness, Mr. Darwin, you Social Justice Warrior
- 11:20 — “Extrapulations”
- 24:20 — No one has ever demonstrated one species changing to another species, so unless you’ve found the fossilized remains of the elusive Lizard Man, you can keep your bogus “evolution”
And Carson on the Big Bang, which he also questions:
[Carson] also dismissed the Big Bang, calling it a “fairy tale.” The irony of this is palpable. When recently called on this claim, he dug in, saying (about people who think the Big Bang is true), “Here’s the key, I then say to them look, ‘I’m not gonna criticize you, you have a lot more faith then I have.’ I couldn’t, I don’t have enough faith to believe that.”
