Theory isn't just a word in science that means a supposition. It's a rigorous process arrived at with supporting facts and becomes the accepted explanation of whatever it seeks to define or answer. Theories never become Scientific Law and they never revert back to hypothesis. It is the answer unless disproven through the same rigorous process.

Oh, well maybe if Carlson gets into the white house he will perform an exorcist to get rid of the phantoms.


You mean the entire congress?

I am pretty surprised with the amount of defensiveness going on here.

If Clinton came out and announced her belief that the sun LITERALLY gave birth to the planets and that the Milky Way was a stream of the sun's breast milk, people would think her insane. But how is that any less scientific than the LITERAL belief of everything being created as in the Christian bible account?

Honestly, if Dr. Carson were somebody I liked and had decent stances on the issues, his personal beliefs wouldn't scare me off (I have "crazy" religious beliefs of my own) but... it would certainly make me think he's a bit ungrounded.

He is a bit off, for sure.

Or if someone said that we are in a geocentric universe, which really goes hand in hand with this type of thought to me.
Not saying you have to think we are in a geocentric universe if you believe in creation but they come out of the same thought process I think.

Let's put it this way;
I'd feel unsafe driving across the country with a fanatic Christian in the drivers seat.
"In gods hands" kinda freaks me out a little.

Who gives a flying rats ass if he is a creationist, what you should be worried about is that he supports pharmaceutical drugs,forced vaccinations, and is against pot legalization. He may otherwise seem intelligent but he will drag the country down if voted in.(if you actually believe voting isn't rigged)

I was tempted to find a picture of Carson looking equally insane but why bother? We already know he is not... right. I mean... the first person to actually go under this doctor's knife was somebody he stabbed in school. How is that not crazy?

Dude. That political stuff works short term. Long term it pisses people off(I can give examples). Keep it up.

Are you sure that is true? Ben Carson is a man of science, a neurosurgeon. He's not ignorant of science. But he was also raised a 7th day adventist. So he may parrot a few adventist talking points on occasion, but so did George Washington when he said you can't govern without God and the Bible. So have many presidents since. In fact, I don't think you could find one that did not invoke God once in awhile. Even Obama went to "church" in Chicago on a regular basis.

Do you condemn Obama for going to church services?

i didn't think so.

These guys pay lip service to whatever religion they're stuck with. Get 'em alone where nobody can hear and they'll admit it's all B.S. Even preachers will do that. Go to any main-stream seminary in the US today (not Oral Roberts University) and you'll find out most of the students there believe Jesus was a charismatic guy with a message. And that's it. The window dressing and mythology surrounding it is not the important part.

I wouldn't worry about it.

Everybody... and I mean everybody either firmly believes in the supernatural or is terrified of it. It is human nature and the instinct is hardwired into our collective psyche. We've been haunted by darkness and the unknown for as long as we became aware.

That there are 'Gods' is the preferred method for giving us some form of security because 'Gods' can be dealt with by various methods, such as prayer and sacrifice, hoping it is enough to ease the terrors that come with the unknown.

There are also supernatural beings which show us no mercy and cannot be tempted to hold back. They too have been with us for millennia. I'm sure Freddy Kruger seems real to many children today.

When a leader comes along who is unapologetic for believing in a God and all that God espouses, then he is only being truthful, not only to himself, but to all who would listen. That is a good thing, because liars are liars and cannot be trusted.

The only concern one must have when confronted by such a leader is in the understanding that they may act in the 'interest of their God'. The Bible is replete with ideas that could cause much suffering for those who do not worship the God the proposed leader worships. That, and their possible desire for a 'Heaven on Earth' might push him towards promotion of the Armageddon. Leaders have powers given to them which are very dangerous. History taught us that just this past century.

So, while I have no problem with one who holds on to the religion of their choice, I do think they need to act with reservation and prudence when handling State and International Affairs.

It's not his belief in God or even the Christian God that is appalling to me, it's his lack of logic on this particular statement that he believes that the world was created in six days and that Satan has influenced both science and the majority of the worlds population to the degree that we believe in this Science over his version of God.

God and evolution co-exist for a great many people.

According to the liberal left, our own president believes in Satan. You do remember his claim of being Christian right? That includes the belief in Satan. Of course there is a 100% chance that he lied, but what else is new...
Now what you going to do? Pull your hair out and scream in a mirror?


But regardless, president Obama does believe in Science. I would have hoped he would have helped NASA with way more funding but....

If that is true, I must be some sort of anomaly. I do not believe in the supernatural, nor does it terrify me. I am indifferent all the way around.
