Ben Carson Repudiates Young Earth Creationism

A persistent meme among the media is that Ben Carson is a scientifically ignorant guy who thinks the earth was created six thousand years ago.  Not so fast.  The Christian Post is reporting on comments Carson made specifically addressing that issue.   Stoyan Zaimov writes:
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson clarified that he believes that God created the world but does not believe the Earth is only 6,000 years old, as young Earth creationists claim. Carson also criticized those who claim there is no way the Earth can be billions of years old, saying that such people put themselves "in the same category as God."I certainly believe that God is our Creator. And interestingly enough, if you look at our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, it talks about certain inalienable rights given to us by our Creator," Carson told Fox News host Bill O'Reilly in an interview.
He still doesn't like evolution. 


  1. I've seen a lot of criticism of Carson - but he seems a nicer guy than Trump (though that is not difficult).

  2. This is utter bull...If you don't believe in evolution, because you are a fundie, then by definition you have to believe in a flat earth at the very minimum because that is exactly what Genesis literally portrays and fundies are all about literalism when it suits them...when it doesn't, it's just "mystery that God hasn't yet graced us with knowledge about."....Carson is a idiot savant, he expertise on anything begins and stops at his ability to do some amazing things with his hands...his head is a mess...
