Carson Rejects Evolution, Big Bang Theory

Ben Carson is not ashamed to admit he believes in creationism instead of evolution, even though he received a scientific education to become a doctor, the Daily Mail reported.

Referring to “secular progressives,” the Republican presidential contender commented Sunday: “They like to criticize me, (saying) ‘Carson, he’s a scientist, but he thinks God created the world.’ Well, I like to criticize them because they can’t tell me where anything came from.”

A video shows Carson making the remarks during one of two sermons he delivered at the Cornerstone Church in Madison, Tenn. He is a Seventh-day Adventist, which became an issue on the campaign trail when rival candidate Donald Trump questioned the Christian sect.

In the sermon, Carson criticized the Big Bang theory’s explanation of the creation of the world. “It just happened?” he asked. “Come on, give me a break. That requires a lot more faith than it takes to believe in God, I gotta tell you.”

The Daily Mail pointed out that Carson is seeking to build on his support among evangelicals and other faith-based Republican voters. That portion of the GOP base is largely responsible for the doctor’s lead in the polls in Iowa, the site of the first vote in the nominating process.
