Ben Carson: Charles Darwin Came Up With the Theory of Evolution Because He Was Influenced by Satan

At LGF we’ve written several times about GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson’s rejection of the scientific theory of evolution in favor of young Earth creationism. But here’s a video that graphically demonstrates just how regressive Carson’s anti-science beliefs are.

In this speech delivered to the Adventist News Network’s “Celebration of Creation” in November 2011, Carson shows ignorance of basic geology, attributes fake quotes to “evolutionists,” ridicules scientists, and last but not least, says Charles Darwin was influenced to come up with the theory of evolution by none other than… yes, Satan. The Horned One. His Nibs. In Carson’s words, “the Adversary.”

It’s shocking and disturbing that one of the frontrunners in the GOP campaign for president holds these kinds of Dark Ages anti-science beliefs. But while Carson’s statements may seem extreme, nearly all of the GOP candidates in this race are creationists.

In addition to everything else that’s wrong with them in 2015 (and that’s plenty), the Republicans are the party of hard core science denial.

Some quotes from the video, transcribed by Daniel W. VanArsdale:

[20:56] “… there is abundant evidence, geological evidence, that there was a worldwide flood. Go up into the Andes Mountains and see all those fossils on the top of those mountains. I mean, these things, when you talk to the evolutionists about them, they always say the same thing … ‘well, we don’t understand everything.’ And I just say, ‘I’m not sure you understand anything.’ You know, they look at all those layers, and then they find some fossils in one of the layers, and they says this fossil is this many years old because it’s in this layer. So, that means this fossil is like a million years old. And then later on they say, ‘well, this layer is a million years old because this fossil which is a million years old is in it.’ You know, that’s like saying, you know, ‘the sky can be red or blue’. And you say, well, the sky is blue. And you say why is it blue? ‘Because it is not red.’ Well why is it not red? ‘Because its blue.’ Yeh, you know that’s known as circular reasoning. That’s how they explain the age of all these things, its very circular reasoning, and really it has no real scientific validity.” [22:22]

[24:34] “So we should be able to find intermediate species at any given point in time, and we should be able to find how they line up. You know Darwin said his whole theory depended on the fossil remains and he said we should be able to line up from a single cell organism to man several miles long and just walk right down the fossil trail and see how everything evolved. And he said the only reason they didn’t have the fossils was because they were not geologically sophisticated enough, but that we would be in fifty to a hundred years. Well that was a hundred and fifty years ago. We still haven’t found them. Where are they? Where are the fossil remains? But when you ask the evolutionists about that they say: ‘Nnuuhhh I don’t know where they are, they’re somewhere, we just haven’t found them yet.’” [25:35]

[27:24] “You know, according to the theory [of evolution] it [the eye] had to go pukh! and there was an eyeball, overnight, just like that, because it wouldn’t work in any other way. And when you ask the evolutionists about that they say, ‘well, we don’t understand everything.’ And I say, ‘well, I don’t think you understand anything.” [27:48]

[31:03]. “Well, now what about the big bang theory? I find the big bang really quite fascinating. Now here you have all these highfaluting scientists, and they are saying there was this gigantic explosion and everything came into perfect order. [31:19] … [32:16] Well, but I mean it’s even more ridiculous than that, because our solar system, not to mention the universe outside of that, is extraordinarily well organized to the point where we can predict 70 years away when a comet is coming. Now that type of organization, to just come out of an explosion? … [32:43] And then even if you want to use their own scientific theories, you know you’ve got this mass spinning and then it explodes. In physics we have something we call angular momentum and it is preserved, so it should be preserved in any orbit of anything that is effected by gravity around a planet, which means everything has to traverse in the same direction. Well it doesn’t! There are many planets that have satellites and moons that go in the opposite directions. So that doesn’t work with angular momentum.” [33:19]

[36:49] “How are flowers able to reproduce? Pollination. How does pollination occur? Bees and other creatures. Now according to evolution, plants came along before the bees. So how did the plants reproduce? … [37:41] … according to evolutionary model, you know we really came from an ameba. And amebas, they just like split and then there’s two amebas. So it seems to me like according to evolutionary model you do things that are efficient. So rather than going out and looking for a mate you would just divide, and then there would be two of you. … [38:16] But, you know, things are supposed to work in an efficient way, so according to the evolutionary model we would be less pugilistic, we would be much more logical, we would be much more creative, we wouldn’t be going around fighting each other and cutting off people’s heads anymore. Because that stuff would be extinguished and we would have evolved into something much better. According to the creation model, in which we have an adversary, it’s very easy to explain why people act that way, it’s because they have choice and because there is an adversary out there. [38:57]

[answering a woman’s question, 45:07] “I personally believe that this theory that Darwin came up with was something that was encouraged by the adversary [Satan], and it has become what is scientifically politically correct. Amazingly, there are a significant number of scientists who do not believe it but they are afraid to say anything.” [45:38]

There’s been quite a dispute within the SDA church over the teaching of biology and evolution in SDA colleges. I believe at least one professor was fired or forced to resign. That Carson said this in 2011 would fit the time frame for the “controversy”. Oh well, not my circus, not my monkeys anymore. #exSDA

Pandering to idiots.

Being an Adventist himself, he has been immersed in creationism - they are one of the denominations which have been strongly creationist throughout the 20th century.

So he knows how to talk the talk.

This is a gimmick, at least the character presentation. I have no doubt that Carson himself is a very religious man, but this spiel he has to get the average pew warmer to identify with himself is a character he is playing.

There’s ALWAYS “a significant number of scientists who do not believe it but they are afraid to say anything”. Vaccines, AGW, Evolution, HIV/AIDS.

If you say that, i means you have no idea how science works. It would make anyone’s career to be able to effectively refute and replace any of those. But that’s the rub - you have to REPLACE it with something that accounts for all the observations, and does it BETTER. It has to make testable predictions that ALL come true.

The most insane thing about that is if you WERE the scientist who could definitively disprove evolution and somehow ‘prove’ that there’s a God - you would become one of the most well known people in history, period. Seriously, there would be statues, buildings, and everything else erected to “Dr. NotLikely”, the guy who proved our creationist origins. Its not like this is information a scientist would just ‘sit’ on.. they LOVE people to know about their discoveries - ESPECIALLY when they crush current worldview on something. Its their version of ‘pwning’ in video games.. lol.

If I didn’t know better, I would suspect that creationism, like the conspiracy industry, is a foreign generated plot to destroy America.

Relevant to both Trump and his vaccines, and Carson:

Genetic analysis supports prediction that spontaneous rare mutations cause half of autism

A team led by researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) this week publishes in PNAS a new analysis of data on the genetics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). One commonly held theory is that autism results from the chance combinations of commonly occurring gene mutations, which are otherwise harmless. But the authors’ work provides support for a different theory.

They find, instead, further evidence to suggest that devastating “ultra-rare” mutations of genes that they classify as “vulnerable” play a causal role in roughly half of all ASD cases. The vulnerable genes to which they refer harbor what they call an LGD, or likely gene-disruption. These LGD mutations can occur “spontaneously” between generations, and when that happens they are found in the affected child but not found in either parent.

Although LGDs can impair the function of key genes, and in this way have a deleterious impact on health, this is not always the case. The study, whose first author is the quantitative biologist Ivan Iossifov, a CSHL assistant professor and on faculty at the New York Genome Center, finds that “autism genes” - i.e., those that, when mutated, may contribute to an ASD diagnosis - tend to have fewer mutations than most genes in the human gene pool.

This seems paradoxical, but only on the surface. Iossifov explains that genes with devastating de novo LGD mutations, when they occur in a child and give rise to autism, usually don’t remain in the gene pool for more than one generation before they are, in evolutionary terms, purged. This is because those born with severe autism rarely reproduce.

The team’s data helps the research community prioritize which genes with LGDs are most likely to play a causal role in ASD. The team pares down a list of about 500 likely causal genes to slightly more than 200 best “candidate” autism genes.

The current study also sheds new light on the transmission to children of LGDs that are carried by parents who harbor them but whose health is nevertheless not severely affected. Such transmission events were observed and documented in the families used in the study, comprising the Simons Simplex Collection (SSC). When parents carry potentially devastating LGD mutations, these are more frequently found in the ASD-affected children than in their unaffected children, and most often come from the mother.

Off topic, but a seriously underplayed headline from the AP:

ARIZONA SHERIFF COULD FACE FINES FOR DISOBEYING JUDGE

The sheriff of metropolitan Phoenix built his reputation around defying those who said it wasn’t his job to enforce immigration laws. But Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s stubborn streak is catching up with him - and taxpayers will foot the bill.

The six-term sheriff learns in court hearings set to begin Thursday whether he’ll face civil fines for disobeying a judge’s orders in a racial profiling case and whether he’ll later be called into criminal court on the same grounds.

Maricopa County will have spent $125 million by next summer defending Arpaio against lawsuits during his 22 years as sheriff. That includes $50 million in the profiling case alone and $74 million in judgments, settlements and legal fees for the sheriff’s office, covering things like lawsuits over deaths in his jails and the lawman’s failed investigations of political enemies. This week’s resumption of hearings, which began in April, could add to those bills.

“At what level do we have to spend on the sheriff’s actions before there is a huge outcry by the public?” said Maricopa County Supervisor Steve Gallardo, a longtime Arpaio critic who serves on the board that approves spending of tax dollars in the profiling case.

[…]

How long before “a huge outcry by the public” ? Well, there’s enough bigots in Maricopa county to keep Arpaio and his ilk in office for as long as they want.

OT, but interesting: Awhile back I posted a page with excerpts from Mary Mapes’ book in which she attacks LGF for relying on talking points and flawed research to discredit the Killian Documents.

The first appendix to her book contains the following note:

A fundamental problem with the claim the Killian memos were not authentic was that the critics never saw the best copies of the documents. The reproductions of the memos examined online by bloggers and “experts” (her emphasis, not mine) around the country had been faxed - sometimes more than once - as well as photocopied, scanned and downloaded. Each process has the potential to change the proportions of the printed material, the details of the font style and the clarity of the image. Faxing in particular can radically alter a documents appearance.

I wonder if anyone in the Catholic Church hierarchy has seriously thought about what a shepherd actually does when it exalts His Holiness as such.

OK, starting at the beginning of the year after the lambs are born the shepherd castrates nearly all of the male lambs. They’re destined for the butcher’s shop as soon as they’ve put on a bit of meat from the lovely spring grazing they’re happily gambolling about on and testosterone makes the meat tougher so chop chop.

Summer comes, the gambolling lambs that are left in the fields are now all female. The adult ewes get shorn of their fleece by the shepherd as do the lambs for the valuable lambswool. The males have given up their harvest of lambskin already.

Now it’s autumn and the shepherd introduces the few rams kept for breeding to the ewes to get their sexing on in a mass rape/orgy, including the first-year ewes. Any ewes that don’t “catch” and get pregnant follow their boy children to the slaughterhouse at this point in time.

Been there done that as a kid working on a hill farm with overwintering sheep.

I have to say regarding this Pope. I sure as hell do have my disagreement with him but it’s nice to see a prominent Christian leader not engage in the fire and brimstone talk. Maybe it’s my personality but I’ve never gotten why that rhetoric from fundie preachers and missionaries inspires people.

I remember cracking my parents up as a little kid one Sunday as we were driving home from church. They asked me why I was mad at the preacher and I told them I was sick of hearing about when I die and go to hell. “I’m only 6 years old!”

If he actually rights the ship and the Church starts to bring more people back in, the schools and universities are strengthened and grow back to what they were all over the world, I think they will almost have to look for someone like him and maybe even more liberal. It will be shown to be good for business.

He sure is sending some strong messages about what he is interested in and gays and abortion are not in his target area. I am interested in how he speaks to America. This is the area of the world that challenges the Catholic Church as much as any other, and I think he is aware he cannot slide by on the same old dogma.

I dunno, but I found this in Wiki:

Bicycle monarchy (or bicycling monarchy) is a British term that refers to the more informal and modest personal styles of the royal families of countries in Scandinavia and the Low Countries, particularly the Netherlands.

The term is often used in a pejorative sense by newspapers in the United Kingdom, reflecting a pride in the pomp and ceremony of the British monarchy.[1] However, it is not used exclusively as a negative term, and is sometimes used in a favourable light, particularly by those that oppose the more ceremonial side of the Royal Family but do not seek to abolish the monarchy.[2]

“The President invited openly gay Episcopal Priest, a transgender activist and an activist nun to be part of the 15,000 people who will greet the Pope on the south lawn of the White House.”

And if Obama had met the Pope at the airport, he would have been accused to subjugating himself to a religious authority, even if that authority was Christian.

Especially this current Pope. They think he’s a Catholic Obama.

They (the Church) should only be so lucky!

You can tell how much he actually knows about this Pope. This is as controlled from the Vatican side as it is Washington/Obama.

And that means lean and clean is most likely what this Pope wants.

Huckabee would never get in a FIAT 500!!!

This is actual content in a political trip and how a real man of religion acts you fool. Class is not your thing Mike. Shut the hell up.

this must be part of the Christian “not of this world” movement… because I have no fucking idea what world Huckabee lives in

There was literally nothing wrong with how the President greeted the Pope. Nothing. These people live in an alternative reality.

Because they’re both Antichrists!

Thought experiment: if you brought (Jesus) Christ and a Anti-Christ together, could you power a warp drive?

The good news, it seems, is that support for Bobby Jindal’s Presidential bid has finally coalesced into a solid core of diehard supporters.

The bad news is that core is composed entirely of people named “Jindal”…

re: #237 ObserverArt

The Pope in a FIAT 500 still cracks me up.

Talk about being modern. I wonder what cut the Vatican gets when Fiat’s sales go up in America?*

*At the expense of VW hatchbacks like the Golf.

Well, VW has done enough here recently on their own to sabotage their sales, diesel or not.

I actually think he’s a true believer. He spoke at the SDA church I attended about a decade ago. How he reconciles the science, I don’t know.

Many otherwise intelligent people expose themselves as just plain ordinary outside their own area of expertise. Dr. Carson has often exposed himself as a moron outside the area of neurology. Either a moron, or an extreme case of textbook cognitive dissonance.

re: #68 freetoken

Off topic, but a seriously underplayed headline from the AP:

ARIZONA SHERIFF COULD FACE FINES FOR DISOBEYING JUDGE

How long before “a huge outcry by the public” ? Well, there’s enough bigots in Maricopa county to keep Arpaio and his ilk in office for as long as they want.

re: #68 freetoken

The citizens there probably view the lawsuit expense as a cost of doing business in keeping their town as white as possible, the same importance of city services like sewage processing, street cleanup, and public grounds upkeep.
