Award-Winning Neurosurgeon Condemned by Major University for Not Believing in Evolution

Dr. Ben Carson is a nationally recognized neurosurgeon and Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Carson does not believe in evolution. Since 1989, he has delivered 73 commencement speeches. This year, a number of faculty members and others at Emory University are upset that Dr. Carson will deliver this year’s commencement address.

Before discussing the evolution dust up, let me give you some background on Dr. Carson.

In 1987, with a 70-member surgical team, Carson was the first surgeon who successfully separated Siamese Twins conjoined at the back of the head. For this groundbreaking surgery and other accomplishments

“Carson has received numerous honors and many awards over the years, including over 61 honorary doctorate degrees. He was also a member of the American Academy of Achievement, the Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans, the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, the Yale Corporation (the governing body of Yale University), and other prestigious organizations. He sits on many boards including the Board of Directors of Kellogg Company, Costco Wholesale Corporation, and America's Promise.”

In 2008, President George W. Bush awarded Dr. Carson with the Presidential Medal of Freedom award, the highest civilian award in the United States.

His rise from struggling student to gifted surgeon is told in Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story. In 2009, the book was adapted for television and starred Academy Award winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr.

While acknowledging Dr. Carson’s achievements, 500 faculty members, grad students, and alumni want Emory University to issue some disclaimers. They are not asking that Dr. Carson be disinvited, but only that some comments be made to “those students, their families, and the Emory Community” who “listen to his speech” that some mention be made of “the enormous positive impact of science on our lives and how that science rests squarely on the shoulders of evolution.”

How many times have you heard evolutionists claim that people who don’t believe in evolution don’t make good scientists? Well, Dr. Carson is one person who demolishes the myth, and he’s not the only one. There are too many scientists to list who don’t believe in the theory that nothing evolved into what we see in the cosmos today.

Science, as any honest student of history knows, developed within the context of a Christian worldview.

Christians don’t deny the “positive impact of science” just like they don’t deny the negative impact of science, for example, nuclear weapons and eugenics, to name just two. Science is not neutral, and you don’t have to be an evolutionist to be a good scientist. In fact, I would go so far as to say that a consistent evolutionist could never do science. Science assumes a rational and fixed set of natural (creational) laws. Given the assumptions of evolution, a scientists would never know what he’s going to get.

The letter accuses Dr. Carson of disregarding the “importance of science” and “critical thinking.” How can these university-educated men and women make such an asinine statement? What parent would ever put their child’s life in the hands of a man who has no regard for the “importance of science” and “critical thinking”? What university or hospital would hire him? Who would give awards to such a man?

Evolutionists have been telling the world that anti-evolutionists are “anti-science” because they do not believe that matter can evolve into intelligence, biological complexity, and morality in the same way that liberals argue that conservatives who do not believe that they should be forced to pay for a woman’s birth control devices are “anti-women.”

Evolution is a philosophical and moral dead end. There’s no way to rescue it by asserting the claim “that science rests squarely on the shoulders of evolution.” If it does, we are in deep trouble. Dr. Ben Carson knows better.

    The theory of evolution is absurd. Something from nothing? Ridiculous. But, but, but, the Bible also claims all things came from nothing!! No it doesnt. All things came from some One.

    • NonyaBidnezz

      evolution does not say "something from nothing". It is the theory that adaptations in genetic inheritance change biological organisms over successive generations.

      • eaglesnumberonefan

        That may be true, but it is still just a theory.

        • Born Skeptik

          I'm guessing you don't understand the difference between 'theory' as common nomenclature and 'theory' as scientific theory.

        • esandy49

          As is the theory of Gravity. Everyone knows there is no such thing as gravity!

        • Reader

          Actually, from a scientific perspective, it barely qualifies as a hypothesis. Unlike most scientific pursuits are supposed to go, when the idea feel apart in the face of the evidence, they attacked the evidence and supported the idea. That isn't science. It is religious fervor.

      • Screeminmeeme

        NonyaBidnezz.....phooey!
        We see once again that scientists are redefining evolution. But at its foundations, its all about something that came from nothing...mindless molecules in motion over billions of years... which ultimately became man.
        One of the biggest scams ever foisted on the human race. A five year old knows enough to debunk it.

        • Born Skeptik

          "evolution' isn't about mindless molecules...

        • tom

          So molecules have minds ? Is that what you are saying ?

        • GUS SAAVEDRA

          Yes, it is about mindless men like Darwin....may his soul rest in peace if he is not being barbecued in eternity with Satan as his host.

          Born skeptik.....Sure it is. Evolutionists always do a little fancy footwork to try to avoid the bottom line. Do you mean to tell me that you think that those millions of moving molecules are ''thinking'' and have a purpose?

          The bottom line is this.....either Someone OUTSIDE of Creation, created all things.....or....something came ACCIDENTALLY from nothing thru a MINDLESS process WITHOUT PURPOSE. That absurdity of evolution cannot be overstated. But those of you who hold to it show how far into fantasyland you will go to avoid CONFRONTATION with YOUR Creator.

        • GUS SAAVEDRA

          GREAT ----YOU SAID IT WELL BROTHER ...KEEP IT UP AND LET'S BE ALERT ON THIS MATTER - DEBUNKING ALL THOSE WITCH DOCTORS ON THE EVOLUTION SIDE - TO GOD BE THE HONOR AND GLORY FOR CREATING US - GIVING US THE POWER OF FREE WILL - SO BE IT - I AM ON GOD'S SIDE - HE IS STILL CREATING - HIS WORK DID NOT STOP - WAIT TILL YOU GET TO HEAVEN - GOD WILL REVEAL THEM ALL TO YOU - THAT IS WHY YOU NEED ETERNAL LIFE BECAUSE IT WILL TAKE ETERNITY TO KNOW GOD AND HIS VAST CREATION..

      • Cecil

        But here are designed limits to those variations. Darwin's finches are still finches; Chihuahuas and great Danes are still dogs; red-heads, blonds and brunets, pygmies and Dutch seven-footers are still human. The evolutionary "scientists" who understand so much are still milking the National Science Foundation this year for 1,108 research projects on living cells. Why??

        • revere

          thanks for demonstrating how little you know about evolution. Darwins finches are finches today but 200 million years ago their ancestors were meat eating theropods(dinosaurs.). All birds are descended from them. Check out archaeopteryx for an example of a transitional animal.

        • ort

          Revere: thank you for the biggest laugh I've had in weeks! A dinosaur became a bird? LOL! A dinosaur was created as a dinosaur, and birds as birds. All life reproduces " after it's own kind.". Dogs may differ in breed, but not one single dog will EVER eventually turn into a rabbit!

          Show me ANY transitory fossils, and I'll concede the argument. But you can't, because there is absolutely not a single one to be found.

          "the fool says in his heart, 'there is no God'."

        • revere

          @ort:disqus Firsr of all I did give an example of a transitional fossil. You might want ot reread my comment. Second, I'm a practicing Christian . Third, dogs in all their breeds are descended from wolves. Any zoologist will tell you that.
          "I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense,reason,and intellect has intended us to forego their use." (Galileo)
          God may be the Who, but evolution is the How. You might want to check out the new Jane Goodall film Chimpanzee to see how many traits we share not to mention 98% of our genes

        • Brama

          Your God is too sloppy and verbally vague... For the real God is not an author of confusion, nor is does He have to resort to an offensive method to His omnipotence such as evolution. Maybe you forgot the part where man was made in His image?
          There is also a big difference with breeding dogs because you are actually dwindling DNA to create breeds. Evolution REQUIRES more information and DNA for life to become more complex. If evolution were true, we'd really all be getting less complex, not more complex. You can't add what you don't have.

        • ort

          Revere: you say you are a practicing "Christian" but the refutation to your ridiculous argument re. Evolution, is contained in the first few verses of Genesis. "in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
          The Hebrew word for "day" denotes a very real and literal 24 hour period.

          Now, "practicing Christian", if you cannot even take the Lord your God's very simple and clear words, that He did what He said He did and how......then what assurance do you have that Jesus is God, He died for our sins, is alive forevermore and that we have forgiveness?? He might be lying or wrong about that as well, right? Try and digest that.

          For if God is lying about how He created everything, then you sure as heck cant trust anything else He says. And if that's the case, every true born again believer is dead in their sins and headed to hell. My God, can you not grasp this?

        • Screeminmeeme

          revere....Christianity and evolution are mutually exclusive terms. From NOTHING, NOTHING COMES. A five year old knows that much. Yet you evolutionists still hold tenaciously to that falsehood.....because to do otherwise would mean confrontation with your Creator. Your profession of being a Christian is suspect.

          Sadly, you've bought into two lies:

          one......that the Bible is not reliable and is not to be believed.
          two....that Godless men would provide you with satisfactory answers while the omniscient, omnipotent God you profess to worship can't.

          You cannot staddle the fence. If you can't believe the Genesis account of Creation (confirmed by Jesus, BTW)....then HOW can you believe anything else in the Bible, including how one becomes a Christian?

          Your Chimpanzee example is a red herring. Humans share 98 percent DNA with mice, hamsters and rats. So what.

          Wolves and dogs differ by less than 1 percent of DNA. Dogs didn't descend from cats.....nor cows from whales.

        • Screeminmeeme

          revere....ROFL! The absurdities of evolution cannot be overstated. Even adamant assertions are not evidence. There are NO transitional fossils. None. Zip. Zero. Nada.

      • theObserver

        Frankly, it doesn't say "nothing". It is based on the notion that there were large amounts of the two most basic elements.... that they eventually became rocks and such and then turned into people. All this said, I can see why one would consider it whacky to believe in a God that we can't understand.

        • NonyaBidnezz

          Evolution only relates to biological organisms.

        • Screeminmeeme

          NonyaBidnezz....Seeing the handwriting on the wall which heralds its demise, evolution proponents continue to move the goal posts and redefine...redefine...redefine terms. Evolution itself is near extinction....as are its teachers.

      • Reader

        And it still comes back to something from nothing since they STILL cannot work out where or how the life starts, and everything they try comes back nothing, in spite of creating idea LABORATORY conditions. They still have to come up with life from death, and biology in the real world doesn't even always give life from life. Frankly, the odds are better of random lightning bolts carving next week's winning powerball numbers in your driveway on a cloudless day than being able to get 1/100th the biological diversity of this planet from a common set of living ancestors, let alone a non-living ooze of "pre-life" elements and chemicals. And with the complete lack of any life ever becoming another TYPE of life, either by natural OR artificial selection, they still have nothing to support evolution beyond animals breeding true to their own kinds with various traits already inside their genetic code. Since they are breeding true to their kind and pre-existing genetic heritage, their variations disprove evolution, not support it.

      • Wendy in AR

        You are confusing MICROevolution (changes over time to adapt to external stimuli, observed and proven) and MACROevolution (Darwin-style molecules-to-man theory, never observed). What has been observed and thereby proven (adaptation) results in the loss of genetic information, whereas the unobserved theory of macro-evolution would require the massive addition of genetic information.

    • stevor

      According to evolution, it started with the Big Bang with single elements such as hydrogen or helium. Down there road we ended up with rocks, Down the road those rocks turned to life and life had a mind/soul. Kind of FUNNY isn't that theory? You "evolved" from a rock? Your mind just "popped" in to your body without God?

        • NonyaBidnezz

          The Romans believed one of their Gods pulled the sun across the sky in a chariot. In the dark ages people believed sickness was due to "demons" in their blood stream that needed to be bled out. I think of the Adam & Eve / Garden of Eden story the same way. Naive answer for something you don't understand. The Theory of Evolution and the Big Bang Theory do not answer all of our questions and may very well be incorrect, but there is some legitimate science behind those theories with some actual provable bits. It is not a blanket - "God did it with magic" logic hurdle.

      If there's no such thing as evolution, how come I have to get a new flu shot every year? Why are antibiotics becoming less and less effective?

        • NonyaBidnezz

          you are demanding proof? Let's see your proof of a supreme being blinking it all into existence.

        • ort

          NonyaBidnezz: the proof is all around you in nature, the earth, and in the wonder and glory of the heavenlies.. The apostle Paul said if you look at all these things, you are "without excuse.". So you can continue fooling yourself and denying the Creator, when all of creation practically screams out His Name! But one day you will presented with irrefutable proof, but by then it will be too late for you. In the name of heaven, I pray one day you wake up.

        • NonyaBidnezz

          thank you for your prayers. My proof is all around me in nature also. Neither one of us has all the answers. I'm just glad we live in a country where we can have the discussion and difference of opinion. Freedom, baby!

        • Screeminmeeme

          NonyaBidnezz....LOGIC tells us that from NOTHING, NOTHING comes. Yet the Big Bang is commonly held as the explanation about how it all began. Of course, it still begs the question of where those elements which blew up came from.

          Maybe you've never considered the consequences of your belief system.

          IF GOD created the world, as recorded in scripture, He had a plan and purpose for His creation. He placed value on life, particularly human life, provided totally for man's needs, and even provided a How-To Manual so that he could know how to lead his life.
          And He taught man that there was Absolute Moral Truth which governed behavior and taught man the difference between right and wrong.

          On the other hand.....If the world was created as you believe......a Big Bang happened (using elements which were apparently already there hanging around in space, and for which you have no explanation) which propelled into motion millions and millions of mindless molecules which over billions of years, evolved from one specie into another until man stood at the Dairy Queen ordering a sundae.

          Since there was no special creation with purpose.......and no absolute value system to live by.....why would it be wrong for a mugger to attack the Dairy Queen man and take his sundae?

          You see......if man evolved....he evolved without moral plan or purpose and therefore everything is relative and up for grabs. There is no right or wrong in your evolutionary worldview...just survival of the fittest......eat or be eaten.

          Scientists hold forums throughout the year at which they each present 'new' evidence which supports their pet theories about the origin of life. They often vociferously disagree....yet they are in total unanimity about one thing: that GOD didn't do it.

          Just goes to show how far man will go to avoid confrontation with and accountability to his Creator.

        • NonyaBidnezz

          Evolution and the Big Bang theory are two different topics. I know it's comforting to you to think there is a grand scheme to the universe where everything is looked over and planned out. I know it's comforting to you to think that the frailty of life doesn't pertain to you because you will have a after-life you can go to. I know it's comforting to you to talk to your creator when times are tough and you feel miserable. who am I to take that away? Believe what you wish. Freedom, baby!

      • http://www.facebook.com/jhenrymartin Henry Martin

        Actually, Tom, mutation involves change, the basic definition of evolution. However, mutations are almost always detrimental to the development of an organism. The reason you need a new flu shot every year is because there are different strains of influenza. These viruses are related, and probably descended from the same strain years ago just like the many different related species of living things. This is speciation, not evolution.

        As for antibiotics becoming less effective, this is related to different "family members" of bacteria that are part of an infection. If the antibiotics are not used long enough, the hardiest of the bacteria survive (classic "survival of the fittest") and go on to produce other bacteria that are just as resistant as they are.

        Ironically, both speciation and survival of the fittest are used to "prove" evolution. But a simple study of the mechanics of genetics shows that living things change over time but in no way can change into different kinds of animals. A wolf is a wolf is a dog - Canus Lupos. No evolution from "protowolf" required. It's all in the genes.

      • burkanuck

        There is a difference between evolution and adaptation, that's why. There is also a world of difference between micro evolution, small changes over time within a species, and macroevolution, one species actually changing into another. Most creationists have no problem with micro evolution whatsoever, it is the idea of macro-evolution that is rejected.
        When you can show me the transitional fossils demonstrating the change from one species to another we can talk.

      • Screeminmeeme

        Born skeptik....tell me you're not serious. Oh...my....you are. Well...let me help you.

        Viruses MUTATE....a form of MICRO-EVOLUTION..... changes within a specie....often becoming more virulent.

        But viruses do NOT become bacteria, yeast or cats, for that matter...which would be MACRO-EVOLUTION....transition from one specie to another....which has never happened.

        See....wasn't that easy?

  • Godfather

    The Bible says "By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible" (Heb. 11:3). It doesn't say "nothing." Bruce Milne in his book Know the Truth states the following: "While the actual phrase 'out of nothing' does not appear,
    the idea is clearly taught in the Bible (Gn. 1:1f; Ps. 33:6; Jn. 1:3;
    Rom. 4:17; 1 Cor. 1:28; Heb. 11:3)." I'm not so sure.

    • Screeminmeeme

      Godfather........
      Col 1:16 For by him were ALL THINGS created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: ALL THINGS were created by him, and for him.

      Eph 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created ALL THINGS by Jesus Christ:

      Rev 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created ALL THINGS and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

      If Christ created ALL things, then BEFORE He created ALL, there was NOTHING. (Of course, apart from and outside of the potential Creation, the eternal God existed.)

      Implicit in these verses is Ex Nihilo creation. Something out of nothing.

      Psa 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his HANDYWORK. Wow!. What a glorious Creator and Savior!

  • Wayne Carr

    Evolution is a scientific theory and so should be so considered. There is much evidence of it and the theory is not a condridiction of the creation by God only an atempt to explain His Wonders. I am a believer in God and His Son Jesus but would not argue this subject because like most men do not have devine knowedge.
    The crime is o attact anyone who does not believe in the evolution theory. This doctor has doen so much good or humanity.

    • Bob Pegram

      Life coming from non-life is an impossibility. In addition, For simple life to "evolve" into more complex life, more DNA would have to be added with the new precise instructions to mesh very complex processes with the existing ones. All mutations reduce the amount of DNA - even in the rare cases when the mutations are beneficial in some way. Thirdly, complex systems would have to arise all at once with every part working perfectly. Otherwise, the parts would be useless and a burden, if one part were missing. The easy example of that is the abilioty to see. All of the complexities of the eyes, optic nerves, the portion of the brain to interpret the signals from the eyes, the portion of the brain that sends signals back to the eyes, muscles controlling the eyes, eyelids, etc., etc., etc. would have to be in place at once and work correctly to be of any use. To believe in evolution, you must believe the impossible. The biblical definition of that is foolishness.

      • Bob Pegram

        Life coming from non-life is an impossibility - unless God does it (correction).

  • Cecil

    Implicit belief in Creation by God never seemed to prevent people like Newton, Maxwell and Faraday from making great discoveries about the complexities of nature - discoveries whose truth engineers and the average Joe depend on every day.

  • Priscilla King

    If their notion of evolution were scientific rather than religious, I'm sure Dr. Carson would accept their facts. What we have here is not a community of scientists, but a cult of "scientism."

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NLORN6B3ZNGCAJTFHWWFUUEY4Q jong

      If however if you look at the Bible and what it explains such as the flood you find that science itself is proving that the Bible is correct. And the more science we get the more is revealed that the Bible is right not wrong. So in essence you could say that it should not be Dr. Carson beliefs that are called into question because he has sciencetific facts on his side. It should be that the others lack of proofs to the contrary that should be called into question.

      • Evermyrtle

        You are right and many other Biblical stories that were not believed by science and much of the world. One of these things that science has proved was, the loss of time., just as the Bible tells us the sun went backward for several hours.

          Evermyrtle,
          Comments like that are used to show the gullibility of creationists. Science has proved no such thing. In fact, this question was posed to NASA, I believe, I can't quite recall now, and they stated that it would impossible to ascertain such an event. I have read a copy of the original letter myself.
          Although I believe the event took place as the Bible states there is absolutely no way to prove it scientifically today so PLEASE, do yourself and the rest of us creationists a favour and quit making statements like this.

      Janiemac, I agree with you. I've heard more of Dr. Ben Carson than Emory University. EU should be thanking their lucky stars Dr. Carson accepted their invitation. And for that matter, Dr. Carson probably could care less about EU's faculty and their opinion. He's more focused on and concerned about the graduates. He's proud of EU's graduates and that will radiate throughout his speech.
      Dr. Ben Carson is priceless both as a person and as a surgeon. America is truly blessed to have him on staff here!

      • jaxum

        I agree, Dr. Carson does care more about the students than the people who care more about their idiot way of thinking do. Dr. Carson can however get around these morons by talking about the evolution of medicine; which is a given.

  • PMDavis

    If scientists were truly intelligent, they would see and understand that something so complex as a human body, the universe, the different kinds of animals, plants, etc. could not have come from nothing or evolved. Only a Master Creator or higher being could have created such beauty and complexity. Why people just want to blatantly disbelieve what is right before their eyes is unexplainable. The reason they don't want to believe is because they would then have to admit that there is a God and they would then see how sinful and insignificant they really are. God created everything, what a simple and beautiful explanation.

        If you really want to know, it can be known, if you don't, no amount of explaining will mean anything to you no matter how accurate, clear and concise. God is a concept, asking who or what created the concept, is the wrong track, like considering the idea one might not exist.

        God is the matrix of loving relationships, following laws in harmony with love that create reality where beings created by love can find love. LOVE is the highest truth, everything in the world is an illusion designed by by God to make it possible for you to attain eternal life. Knowing the in's and out's of the illusion may give one power but it's not necessary for salvation.

    and these same folks who are now busily criticizing 'belivers' believe in anthropogenic global warming when the science shows that to be patently false ! How ironic.

      The science shows global warming is false?? What studies have you read?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YRJJ7XYJIMFYUTJ5KXUFR3ZEFE Ken Kirkham

        If you actually believe the cooked data being resented as fact you are not paying attention. Even the hard-core global warming alarmists are now admitting confusion because even though CO2 is increasing there has been NO increase in global temperature over the past 14 years. If you take only 600 data points out of 900 that show warming then guess what you can "prove" the earth is warming (that is what happened in a major study last year). If however you take all 900 data points the earth is not warming and is cooling.

          I think we need to consider the history of tempratures since the begining of Earth and realize that it has changed many times long before our insignificant selves existed.

          I am definately for cleaning up after ourselves and not leaving a mess even though the processes of the Earth tend to heal over our messes, for example the polutants dumped by some manufacturing companies into the Danube which killed off a trememdous number of fish leaving the Europeans who depended on fishing from the Danube in dire straights. A few years later the fishing population returned because, the poluters wer stoped and normal sediment (you have seen setimentary rock) settled over the polutants responsible for the kill off, sealing them from the water and thus brought the quality of the water back to levels the fish tolerate. See the Christian Science Monitor for the articles just after the problem started and the follow up for the details.

      • http://www.facebook.com/brad.wignall3 Brad Wignall

        LOL do you not have a vocabulary? The word anthropogenic means man made. The only proof of anthropogenic global warming is from the cooked books of the proven misinformers. There is a lot of good SCIENCE that shows that the world goes around the sun but not in a spicific path around the sun. When the earth strays closer to the sun (tadaa) everything gets warmer and when the earth strays further from the sun then (brrrrr) it gets cooler.

        Oh and carbon dioxide is what plants need to breath and grow, and they make OXYGEN for us to breath.

      I have never heard evolutionists claim that people who don’t believe in evolution don’t make good scientists.

      You would pretty much have to not believe in dinosaurs in order to not believe in evolution.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YRJJ7XYJIMFYUTJ5KXUFR3ZEFE Ken Kirkham

        The single discovery that has eluded 'scientists' that support evolution is a missing link. To date there has never been an example of cross species evolution which is the foundation of the belief in evolution. The more that science learns and the more discoveries (or more specifically lack of discoveries) actually supports creationism and disproves evolution. What does your statement about dinosaurs have to do with evolution? No evidence exists that dinosaurs evolved into anything.

        • Richard Gibbard

          Have you ever heard of birds? These are believed to have evolved from the flying dinosaurs such as pterodactyls.

        • Brama

          "These are 'believed'..." I thought evolution was about evidence and not belief, Richard.

        • Michaellaborde

          Yes there is a link between them, God created each one differently with a purpose. One might be food for the other.

        • Renellin

          Given the premise that God's design is how the earth was created. Do you really think, like the Roman and Greek gods, that God the Father sat around with a bunch of clay dolls and each one was given a purpose and a special name? Actually I think Adam named them didn't he? What if God provided a tapestry in which life would change. adapt, and evolve, or, if successful, stay the same. Maybe stay the same by location or by being hard to find. Others might be food sometimes and hunters other times. God didn't have to individually make each creature--he made life so that plants animals and rocks would change and evolve as circumstances changed in the world--all included in the initial design.
          Maybe?

          The problem isn't a "missing link" in fact all of them are missing. "Evolution did it" is the mantra of ignorant atheists who have acquired the rings of power previous scientists forged. Evolutionists aren't doing science like they're fooled to believe. They don't even know the difference between empirical and comparative methods. They derive bland unproven ideas like "junk DNA" to support their "theory", don't recant when they're shown to be wrong and go around trying to force everyone to teach their idiocy. They have purged their vocabulary of concepts necessary for understanding and accuse those who retain them of religious superstition.

          What they don't know is science is on the verge of deciphering God's signature in atoms, cells and the Universe.

        My friend, the Bible tells about Leviathons ("giant lizards") in the book of Job, "whose tail is like a cedar tree...". So people must have seen them. The "scientific" declarations that they lived umpteen million years ago then died off, doesn't confirm nor annul the theory of evolution! Here's a theory for you: Since people lived up to 900 years in the pre-flood era, perhaps lizards did too. If Lizards continue to grow until death, that could make some mighty big lizards.
        I for one would hesitate to suggest eminent scientists who don't believe Darwinian evolution is "where the evidence leads", are equated to people who don''t believe in dinosaurs!

        • PatriotDiva

          The bible also mentions "behemoths" which was a word translated to mean a really large creature. Since the word "dinosaur" was coined in the 1800's, the translators of the bible into english used the words they had at their disposal.

        • Renellin

          Hey, one doesn't have to be an eminent scientist. Certainly the doc mentioned in the article seems to have earned his title, and my hat is off to him. But remember, as in academia, one of the main purposes in running the "business" of science and education, is to distribute awards and accolades to people for the purpose of enhancing their resume. there is always a price tag involved, whether recognized or not.
          Poor Darwin. He must have been so amazed at the Galopogos Islands. Even greater discoveries have occurred in other places of strange arms of the life pool. Had he named his book "The Relationship of Species" instead of Origin, he might have been closer to the truth. However, it suited the public at the time because they were looking for a way out of the moral boundaries they wished to break, so they embraced the notion that everything is for nothing and might as well live an enlightened life, which means it is morally fine whatever you do.

      • Brama

        That means you have yet to live in modern upper academia. Go rent the move "Expelled" and let me know what you think.
        Additionally Brad, both Carbon Dating and Radioactive Dating are both fundamentally flawed. I recommend "Dating fossils and rocks" by Mike Riddle.
        One final thing... ask yourself one question: What is the largest mammal in the world? The Blue Whale, right? Which one is in danger, man or the blue whale? What is the largest land mammal? The African Elephant, right? Which one is endangered, man or the elephant? The problem with your premise is that dinosaurs do not equal millions of years. They're only theorized to be that old... on flawed methods of dating.

        • Michaellaborde

          Amen. Scientis make up evidence to make money.

      • Real modern man

        Sorry, but your statement doesn't (in the 'light' of science) hold water. Why? No one has delivered any evolutional evidence (NOT suppositions, but firm evidence) that dinosaurs evolved from or to any traceable ancient or modern species. For that matter they have never proven that ANY current species (including us) evolved from any prior species PERIOD! They always preface their statements with words like 'could have', 'may have', but never absolutly 'did'! They find a skull in some remote cave in Africa, and tell us that it belonged to a 200k old child that 'may have' been the forerunner of some form of ancient man.

        Herein, you contradict yourself.
        (1) Would a good scientist believe in dinosaurs, or not?
        (2) Do opponents of evolution believe in dinosaurs, or not?
        (3) Considering that evolutionists have an abysmal track-record at classifying fossils accurately and objectively, and considering that DNA and RNA contradict the tree of life - making necessary either creation, or a confused mess of evolution and deevolution and reevolution in a "tangled thicket" of a chart, - it would be more apt to say that evolutionists would deny scientific evidence, than that their opponents would.

      You are dead on Ginger! Sadly, it is going to get MUCH worse before it gets better. Leftists only support freedom of speech when they have the podium.

      • Sutekh

        That's absolutely correct. The leftists call for "diversity" when they are not in control, so that they can exist. When they take control, the iron curtain slams down, and suddenly the term "coexistence" becomes a declared oxymoron.

      You're paranoid, Ginger. Freedom of speech doesn't cover lying to people.

      • http://www.freewebs.com/angelsofhope2008 Dave M.

        Exactly: if scientists try to claim that Darwinian evolution is the truth, they're lying, and that shouldn't be covered under freedom of speech. Although, I would suggest you do a little more research into what the DSM-IV-TR classifies as "paranoia". Hypervigilant, perhaps; but, more than once, hypervigilance has saved lives. Pathological denial, however, has cost lives.

    Evolution makes more sense than "Creation Science," which changed its name to "intelligent design." A recent court case has reaffirmed evolution. Evolution is science. Remember the creation science debate in
    the '70s and '80s? Creation science, aka, intelligent design, doesn't make sense. The creationists have their
    museum in Tennessee, where they have dinosaurs coeval with man. That's fine for a Lin Carter Thongor
    novel, but scientifically, it doesn't make sense.

    • The Texas Cooke

      Truth isn't decided by a show of hands. Evolution ignors entropy which, as a force, is only opposed by living things. That is not open for debate, it simply is a fact. If you want to debate science, it might be useful to, you know, actually know something about it and the nature of the universe.

    • Reader

      Actually, it makes more scientific sense than many other things claimed when known natural disasters in the last 35 years have created, in less than 1 week, conditions identical to those that evolutionists claim took hundreds of millions of years. (One of the best of these was Mount St. Helens, which placed trees at different depths of sedimentary strata in a lake while fossilizing a number of them and laid down a sedimentary structure that nicely matched supposed hundreds of millions of years of sedimentation over the course of a single eruption.) When natural disasters create in minutes circumstances evolutionists and geologists claim took millions of years, they sort of fall short of credibility.

      • onedring

        If man is so complex he needed a creator, then answer this question - who created the creator and the creator of the creator? Your theory does not make sense if you take it back a step or more.

    Evolution? Where is all the bones (fossils) to support it??? Why isn't it still occuring???

  • Harvybing

    Science has numerous questions that simply cannot be answered by current scientific knowledge and popular scientific theories. Take as a good example, the Big Bang Theory. Current physics and astronomy have an obvious insurmountable conflict in considering the Big bang Theory. Read this to learn more about what is called Dodds Paradox. http://www.doddvideoproductions.com/Dodds-Paradox.htm
    Science can't explain magnetism, or gravity. Science can't even tell you how fast the force of gravity works. Does gravity's force react instantly or does it react at the speed of light or perhaps some speed slower than that? Science can't prove the THEORY of evolution. That's why it is still a THEORY.

    I too applaud Dr. Carson's
    achievements. But, I can't help but see the overwhelming evidence
    that almost all living animals and things are related. I looked at my
    cat and saw too many shared body features. Same for my dog and all of
    the other animals I have worked with. Then I look at the numbers
    involved as related to time and generations of evolution. I can only
    conclude that we all evolved from primitive roots to present as
    different species with some shared traits. Deny it if you want but
    there is too much proof that we are all related.

    • John Fontenot

      Really, then please show me evolution. Not theory but fact. Maybe the mathematical numbers of a big blast creating male and female able to care for themselves. The evidence of jesus coming back from the grave seem foreign to your science but made perfect sense to the believers.

      • NonyaBidnezz

        you are demanding proof? Let's see your proof of a supreme being blinking it all into existence.
        Yes "evidence" of Jesus coming back from the grave DOES seem foreign to my science. It is not about "evidence" it is about faith.

        • ort

          NonyaBidnezz: actually, the gospels were completed no later than 60 A.D.
          The reason being, is that nobody mentions the destruction of the temple by Titus and the legions of Rome in 70 A.D.
          Anyhow, the gospels say that if anybody wished to refute what they saw and heard, all they would have to do is ask those that saw it! Many people who witnessed the things Christ did, and the single crowd of over 500 that saw Him at once after His resurrection,could easily have been questioned should anybody wished to have done so!

          All that aside, you will go through incredible mental gymnastics to come up with any excuse to either deny or discredit very credible, verifiable facts that are found in the Gospels. With that kind of thinking, you are dooming yourself to eternal destruction. Very sad.

        • NonyaBidnezz

          I do not need to do mental gymnastics to deny "facts" that are only found in "the Gospels" I support your freedom to believe in a creator. It's just not what I believe. Freedom, baby!

    You Christians (includes about 20 different flavors of who is right...?) are just as backwards thinking as any of the other religions. There are two things I always bring up to try and eliminate the arguments:

    1) God CREATED Evolution
    and
    2) All paths lead to God.

    Where do you Christians get off? You think you have the market on 'afterlife offering' religions?

    You people better start worrying about your Communist POTUS instead of the 'evils of evolution'. It is called science and guess what? It works.

    Bless you all.

    • John Fontenot

      No- More than half take the path of Satan.

    • Reader

      Of course, those two points are a direct attack on basic Christian beliefs, completely out of sync with what the Bible says, AND fall apart on scientific investigation (at least #1 does). I take it you do not read the Christian's source before criticizing and ridiculing them.

    • Brama

      1) God did not create evolution, man did. God's not that sloppy. He actually does things perfectly the first time.
      2) All paths do not lead to God, because all paths do not acknowledge some of the very basic fundamental characteristics of God's nature, and some even are atheistic in nature such as buddhism. As Ravi Zacharias points out (paraphrased), "Even if God had given man 1000 ways to come to Him, man would want 1001. Because it's not that God is limited in His ability to provide 1001 ways, but rather because man is unable to accept the way that God has provided."

Now it's anything "right" that is discouraged, even to the point of having suits filed against Christians who just want to have the same free speech everyone else has.

        Budell: the sad reality is that you are a lost soul, condemned because you refuse to admit you are a sinner in need of a savior. Unless and until you take yourself off the throne of your life, and put God there, you are lost. Like the Lord said "unless you believe I am He, you will die in your sins."
        And it's entirely your choice, as it's obvious you have been given multiple opportunities to repent, and you choose not to. That's fine. You are telling God "I don't need You or want You. I will go my own way.". Guess what? God will allow you to do so. But when the time comes for judgement, you won't have a leg to stand on. And you will have no right to complain about it.

        Without the forgiveness and righteousness imputed to us by Christ's finished work on the cross, you will have to stand before a Holy God who will then be forced to be your Judge, instead of your loving Father. Why? Because this is how you wanted it to be.

        I truly bear no malice towards you. My heart breaks for you, and I truly fear for you because I know where you will end up, and how truly horrific a place it is. But you will not listen, and you don't care. I will pray for you, that while you are still capable you might be saved.

        If not, then eternal separation from God, in a literal burning lake of fire will be your eternal home.

        Bud ell, in the name of God, I beg you to at least consider the words of a poor, miserable sinner who found Grace and Salvation at the feet of the One who loved you so much, He came to earth to be brutally killed so we might have Life, and have it more abundantly. Truly, God bless you.

          Much to your chagrin, I'm a Republican conservative. Religion, cult worship, has no place in our world. Religiosity has caused more harm in the world than the world wars. And all of it based on faith that it is true. No factual evidence. None. And yet evolution has reams of evidence to back it up. But, nooooo, you have to believe in something that cannot and has not been proved with factual, hard evidence. Religion is a scam. The biggest one in our world. Mega-trillions of dollars have flowed into the collection plates. And the stupidity goes on.

          Actually Buddell, more people have died in the name of atheism. If evidence is what you want, I would consider you pick up a copy of the True U series put out by Focus on the Family, which discusses "Does God exist", "Is the Bible Reliable", and the third 10-lesson series on Jesus is still in production. http://www.trueu.org. It puts the nail in the coffin in terms of "evidence", but God's Word tells you that the evidence is staring at you in the face. You just choose to reject Him as the Creator. The fact is, you cannot have creation without a creator. Einstein himself had to succumb to Hoyle's discovery which showed the universe had a beginning. You can't get matter from nothing. The only plausible explanation is that a being that is immaterial, extremely powerful, and timeless, if it is postulated to have created all matter, space, and time. Evolution cannot explain the metaphysical question, and fails to DEMONSTRATE its own theory with any minor scale of respectable evidence.

        • Buddell

          You are another one who has drunk the kool-aid. No sense in arguing with you--your mind is made up. But without proof, your God theory carries no weight. I'm not going to waste my time reading the propaganda you suggest. Just know this: There is TONS of proof for evolution and absolutely zip for the religious explanation.

Not because you reject any physical evidence for creation, but because your unrepentant immorality begs for accountability and justice. THAT is why you reject God. It is the fear of being held morally accountable to someone other than yourself. Flee to the Savior while you still have breath, my friend.

          I just gave you logical evidence.  Why not start with a logical explanation of the origin of the universe, and go from there.  Once you've answered the metaphysical question of the origin of the universe, THEN evolution actually has some infinitesimal respect of occurrence.  And even if you had the origin of the universe, you still have to deal with DNA, left and right handed proteins, the faultiness of the current dating methods, etc.  Ultimately, you have to contend with the fact that when Darwin came out with his theory, 2 things were true.  #1. He was unaware of the immense universe contained the human cell.  In his day, the cell was a blob of goo... easily explainable.  If he were alive today, I highly doubt he would have held such a view.  #2. His theory attempted to explain the origin of species, but even he didn't have evidence.. he had a theory.  It has yet to still be demonstrated that his theory is correct.  You can throw insinuations about fossils all you want.  It has yet to be DEMONSTRATED, which, in Darwin's own words, were necessary in order to keep his theory from falling apart... and that's WITHOUT the knowledge of DNA and all the intracellular information we know today.  Finally, Darwin's theory doesn't explain the origin of the universe and matter, which is the horse before the cart.  If you can't explain that first, discussion about evolution is a moot point.

        • Buddell

          Well, there's one thing I know that is indisputable. A supernatural being did not create the universe. It was created by the natural world. It was created the same way the Grand Canyon was created. Naturally. There are no gods. None. Gods were used by early man to explain the natural world. If a volcano exploded, a god was blamed. We don't do early man any more. This is the modern world. There are scientific explanations for almost everything, and those inexplicable things will be explained in the next 50 to 100 years. I don't know how the universe was created. Maybe the big bang theory has some relevance; maybe not. I really don't have to know. What I do know is that some mysterious supernatural being did not do it, just as I know that superman is a fictional superhero and not real. And for you to make that assertion without a shred of proof is disingenuous, at best. I feel an incredible sense of sorrow for you and others like you who must rely on the word of man written down in a dusty old book for "factual" evidence that there is a superhero, a god, who will save you from yourselves. Incredible in this modern world.

          Buddell, your reasoning does not line up with the basic rules of logic. You cannot explain the origin of matter with matter itself. It's like saying you gave birth to yourself. It is an illogical statement. We aren't talking about the FORMATION of the Grand Canyon, we're talking about he CREATION of matter itself. What is true is that the universe had a beginning. Call the big bang if you like (though I disagree with that asertion for a number of reasons), but the fact is that some other cause has to have created the universe, and given the fact that creation is orderly, riddled with information - from DNA to the physical laws - it stands to reason that an intelligent cause, one that is timeless and extremely powerful, is the cause of the universe. THAT is using logical argumentation. Now if you'd like to use the same rules of logic to argue everything you just posted, please do so. However, your opinion based argument is just that, pure opinion. It lacks logical reasoning and argumentation. Time or "Modern-ness" doesn't somehow change logic to disprove the existence of God. Evolution cannot create an eye, because it is stupid (lacks intelligence). YOU and I cannot create an eye, despite the fact that we HAVE intelligence. Where does that leave you?

          Look up "Chance" in the dictionary. It had to have happened by chance, for all other planets in our solar system are definitely different from one another. You can use your hero explanation if you like, but I prefer chance. We're all just damned lucky to be alive on such a wonderful planet. If you vote for Obama, however, that may cease to be true. Have a good day--what's left of it.

          Focus on the Family is a "hate group". No better than the Ku Klux Klan. Read all about their "lilcence to discriminate" initiative in Colorado. They have a campaign to enable anti-gay bullying in schools. They use fake studies to advance their agendas. They deserve your scorn, not your attention or money. You can find a much better ally Brama.

        • Brama

          "Hate group". Is that what you call people who have a moral disagreement with homosexuality, or does it only make you feel better about your support for that lifestyle. I might add, the True U series is taught by Dr. Stephen Meyer. Oh, and by the way, we discriminate all the time. We don't let Pedophiles around children, we don't let felons have guns, and we typically don't let a known drunk operate heavy machinery. What you don't like is the issue that is discriminated against. But I like how you only call it discrimination when it is Biblically opposed.
          By the way, their not my only ally. Maybe you'd like to consider Dr. William Lane Craig, who has spoken immensely in the arena of Logical argumentation for the existence of God. I encourage you to check out his site at http://www.reasonablefaith.org. Or maybe Ravi Zacharias is more your flavor, who deals with faith from a philosophical approach http://www.rzim.org. Believe me, I've done more research than you give me credit for Nonya.

          "hate group" is what the Southern Poverty Law Center calls Focus on the Family. They are very similar to the Westboro Baptist Church - the "GOD HATES FAGS" assholes that protest at veterans funerals. I guess they have a moral disageement with homosexuality. Biblically opposed issue in action!

          I call discrimination taking a group of people and limiting their access to housing, employment, benefits, medication, and government services, just because you don't agree with them. They are attempting to "supersede" rights given by the government. There are protections built in to our laws to prevent such groups from discriminating against people. They have disseminated disparaging "facts" about gays that are simply not true. They give pointers to high school students on how to bully their gay classmates. They helped Uganda pass laws that makes gay acts punishable by death. I stand by my statement and add that they are simply terrible humans.

          This is not a theocracy, people. It's the United States!

          I'm glad you look to other places for support of your opinion.

          (and you do let pedophiles around children)

        • NonyaBidnezz

          The first amendment gives you the freedom to hold up a sign that says "GOD HATES FAGS" at veterans and celebrity funerals. Freedom, baby!

        • Brama

          Nonya, first of all, I do not support, advocate, encourage, or approve of what Westboro does.  Second, it is disingenuous for you to attribute what Westboro does to what Christ taught, akin to attributing what Timothy McVeigh did , to every citizen of the US.  Third, although you have the freedom to use the language you did in your post, you also have the freedom to excercise a better example to highten your respectability and credibility.  That is just my opinion.
          Third, we may not live in a Theocracy, but that doesn't make God's truth any less necessary to obey.  It just means that the implications have changed from being metted out now, to being metted out ultimately in eternity.  That's because God's law could only be obeyed outward, which man is now capable to follow inwardly, through the presence of the Holy Spirit.  Finally, a moral disagreement does not give anyone the right to commit acts that one could hardly say is the direct result of what Christ taught.  If anyone is really going to vilify Christianity, let them start with the person of Christ.  Because if you and I were on a plane that was going down, and we both had parachutes on, and someone got up in the middle of the plane claiming they had a parachute on, but clearly did not, the only person he is fooling is himself.  You don't blame the parachute manufacturer for his illegitimate claim.

          ORT - I'm afraid you misread my post. I was explaining why both I and the SPLC called Focus on the Family a "hate group".

        • ort

          Nonyabidnezz: I read the article and I don't happen to agree with the SPLC opinion.
          The fact of the matter is, homosexuals and Muslims are the most protected class of people in the country. And both use nonsensical arguments. The Muslims say its racial discrimination. That's laughable. Islam is a religion and not a race.
          The homosexual lobby wants special rights and privileges above what they already get, like every other citizen, under the constitution----simply because of their lifestyle choice (who they choose to have sex with).

          I will say again: get a lawyer and a living will and designate whom you wish to be able to see you in hospital, inherit your property, or make medical decisions for you.
          I believe the homosexual lobby is blatantly putting forth outright lies. Its almost a burning need in that group to "by any means necessary" get what they want.

          And I'm sorry, but to put focus on the family in the same class as Fred phelps is disgusting and disingenuous. Very insulting. Fred phelps is a born again saved believer like I'm a world famous rock star. You call people intolerant name callers? Examine yourself.

          Both arguments are patently ridiculous

        • NonyaBidnezz

          FotF is literally attempting to legislate discrimination against whomever they choose and to "supersede" the protections that have been put into place. WBC is horrible, so is FotF, You should have the same disdain for them as you do for Phelps. At least WBC does not pull in hundreds of millions of dollars a year and have a powerful governmental lobbyist arm so they can't actually affect policy.

          Even though Focus on the Family, the Family Research Council, and NARTH stop at nothing to promote discrimination and bullying toward Gays, their co-founder, George Rekers is a closeted gay man himself. He was forced to resign from NARTH after it was discovered he had employed a gay prostitute as a travel companion in 2010. Does that remind you of Ted Haggard, the anti-gay megachurch minister that was busted buying meth from a male prostitute and forced to pay a six figure settlement with a male parishioner because of a non-consensual sexual relationship? James Dobson, the other co-founder & frequent Fox pundit considers Haggard a "close friend" The assaults on gay rights really say much more about the cracked psyche of the accusers than the ones they wish to oppress.

          Dobson supported Gingrich for president - you know, the guy who married his high school geometry teacher then left her and their two children when he began an affair with his second wife (and never paid child support). Gingrich left wife #2 (who claimed Newt suggested an open marriage) when he had an affair with now wife #3 Callista who was a staffer in Congress. The hypocrisy of Dobson's "christian values" is so apparent, I can't believe anyone would listen to him.

          But then again, Gingrich himself kept talking about "a war on religion" when he had broken the 7th commandment over and over. (and those are COMMANDS from God)

      The Bible tells us that the universe and everythning in it was created in six days, plus a day of rest.
      Science tells us that the universe is billions of years old.
      Therefore, the only obvious conclusion is that God worked longer days. It's good to not have to worry about union work rules.

    I have no religious affinity (and don't want one in case anyone feels the need to "witness"... don't!) and a fairly sophisticated grasp of scientific principles, and I too have difficulty with Darwinism as it's portrayed and presented in colleges today. It's not my unique religious beliefs that disagree with Darwinism, it's that the theory itself fails in many important areas. If anyone wants to pursue the purely scientific case against Darwinism, I would suggest "Darwin's Black Box" by Dr. Michael Behe, PhD. It's fascinating and (I think) dead on.

    The Emory Faculty and Board members who are disparaging Dr Carson's academic credentials because he rejects the THEORY of EVOLUTION , are demonstrating exactly the opposite world-view that Science pretends to hold , which is that it remains always open to new discoveries through experimentation , examination and observation ! If they're so damned sure of the position they hold ; what can they possibly fear from allowing Dr Carson to deliver the commencement address ? How petty ! The truth is that there are many noted scientists who reject the THEORY of evolution ( it is still just a theory ) ! The Evolutionists are still grappling with the dilemma presented to them by the BIG BANG , which is that it demands a beginning point in time ( singularity ) ; and if there is a BEGINNING , there must of necessity be a Beginner !
    It is a sad time in our history , when Academicians DISCOURAGE their students from considering opposing viewpoints to conventional dogma . Remember Gallileo and the Catholic Church ; how embarrassing ! They have never completely lived down the embarrassment . Do not allow this to smear the reputation of a great tradition in education !

    Ben Carson don't need the endorsement or condemnation of a "major" university. He is a legend and nothing can take that away from him. The best minds have been condemned throughout history and in the end their thoughts have been vindicated. We know that the university is bound by strongly held beliefs and for them to deviate from conventional wisdom is hazardous to their financial health because powerful money interests dictate what they want the universities to teach.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ross.blankert Ross R Blankert

    It is the hallmark of liberalism. They have to eliminate God from the discussion. Liberals are godless creatures. The book "Godless" by Ann Coulter has a very good discussion of evolution. If you are a Christian, you should know of a book put together by Christians in 400ad or so called the bible. We all know liberals make fun of people who read the bible(but I digress). If you read the bible and take it as it was meant, you can work science into the words written there. The ark has been found in the mountains. The world was made in seven days could mean seven periods of time each of which could be millions of years because of the translation differences. Loosely translated, the earth was made in 7 eras. The message to Christians is the same. God man man in his image and likeness. Why do liberals take offense to these beliefs? Maybe because they also want to blurr the difference between right and wrong. Liberals think it is quite okay to murder a child in the womb but want to keep death row inmates alive forever in prison because the death penalty is cruel and unusual. For some reason, right and wrong always has a grey area when it comes to liberals. No absolutes for them. This way they can rationalize themselves out of trouble with the Creator. He ain't buying it. We should not either.

  • GUS SAAVEDRA

    I head Dr. Carson spoke to us in 2004 in Chicago during our Million Dollar Round Table Conference (for Insurance Agents) and he is one brilliant Scientist I have ever heard who attributes to God all his Skills, knowledge and SUCCESS. I agree with him that we are created and not evolving from inferior creatures. Please read the books of Dr. Hugh Rose, an Astrophysicist on Creation. There are other Scientists who may not be Christian or Religious but believes we are created by a superior Mind. It is frustrating to carry a conversation with those on the evolution-religion side because they think they are scientists when if fact they are worse than many of their peers who are gone now in eternal oblivion. The creationists have thousands of evidence to prove that all the facts advance by the evolutionist are nothing but figments of their imaginations.

    Dr. Carson is one of the best example for people of God - he is an inspiration to many Christians both in the medical world & other pursuits; students in universities who are on the radar of anti-christian and anti-God educators who needed to be re-educated in "Intelligent Design". Praise God for Dr. Carson. We know there are thousands of other Scientist out there who do not believe in evolution. KEEP UP YOUR GOOD WORK DOC.

    Only fools believe in evolution. There is so much evidence in plain view, that anyone with half sense can see and know that there has to be a creator. Alyhough God is a Spirit and we cannot see Him as long as we live in these sinful bodies, we can get to know Him through His only begotten son Jesus christ. When we believe that He died to save us from our sins and we repent, His Spirit enters into our spirit, we are born again and receive His eternal life. He teaches us the things of God, and we get to know Him. People who have no desire to know God, reject Him and His truth, they had rather believe some ridiculous made made theory of evolution than to believe the simple truth and be saved. Their stuborness and rebelion will wind them up in hell for all eternity.

    Dr. Ben Carson saved my niece's life. She was born hydrocephalic. With the surgery and a month in hospital after her birth, she has had many crises. Life threatening seizures to deal with, with many air vacs to Johns Hopkins, medications and at about 14 years old the left frontal portion of her brain was removed successfully. My niece volunteered with special needs children and at 16 years old she was hired as an employee there after school hours. She went on to graduate from college. She is legally blind and cannot drive, has a few other physical limitations, but is highly functional and motivated, and extremely intelligent. Dr. Carson is a genius and we owe my niece's life to him.

    His views on evolution are just one part of him. He's being treated by the academic elite in a deplorable way, when it is actually the elite who are wrong. They have become so obsessed with the "THEORY" of evolution, they have forgotten the true meaning of the word "theory." Here is the Webster's Deluxe Unabridged Dictionary definition of the word "Theory."

    The word is from the Greek word, theoria, which means " looking at, contemplation, speculation." Theory is "popularly, a mere hypothesis, conjecture, guess." One of the synonyms is "scheme."
    Darwin himself said his theory can be disproved if the fossil record is not found. To date there has been none..After so many years, I would seriously doubt it's veracity, Especially if I were a scientist!

  • Jack_Reacher

    There are noted exceptions to support evolution. For example: Obama ... He wasn't created. A couple of buzzards bumped but*-holes and he was the result. That is "evolution"... Obama "evolved", (to use a catchy Obama White House phrase), ... from a buzzard.

    I have no doubt Dr. Carson is a great surgeon. Surgeons are mechanics, they find better ways to tear things down and put them together again, as such, whether he believes the earth rests upon the back of a turtle or orbits the sun would not effect his ability one way or another. Similarly whether he believes evolution brought about the bits he cuts and patches or it was magically created will have no affect on the outcome of his work. Saying he is a scientist is ridiculous. The entire premise that a scientist should believe in fixed laws (creation) verses the supposed chaos of evolution is a fallacy. Evolution is based on study and empirical evidence. Creation is based on the myths of 6000 year dead sheep herders. I know which one I back.

      Michael adult: problem is, none of the morons in science who are proponents of evolution can prove it. It's a flipping' joke and the reason people believe in that garbage is because if we are nothing more than a random accident, there is no One to whom we must give an account.

      Evolutionists are nothing more than rebellious children, who don't wish to acknowledge a Higher Authority. If you did, then you'd have to admit you have transgressed His laws, and you are under His authority and eventual judgement. But heaven forbid that should happen. @@

        First, I am a Christian and believe in Christ, I have probably studied the Bible and its history more than most in this thread. I know the difference between metaphor, simile as well as the use of parables and stories to get points across. Some of my good brethren here need to learn where the stories end and facts begin. I suggest you read the parable of the talents and apply it to knowledge.

          Michael Ault: "you believe, good! Even the demons believe, and tremble!"

          Your belief means nothing. Are you a blood bought, saved believer? Is Christ the only atonement that paid for your sins? Is Jesus the ONLY way to God? If so, fine.

          If you are studying the Bible with some clinical detachment, picking it apart and refusing to understand that very clear words say and mean what they say and mean, then you are not getting it.

          In the beginning God made the heavens and the earth. The Hebrew word for day here denotes a literal 24 hour period.

          People were made in the image of God: "Let us (Trinity) make man in our image"

          To say then that we are the result of random chance when the word of God clearly says otherwise is to make a mockery of Him.

          I say again: if we cannot take God at His Word that He created all things, then we can't trust that He died for us and paid the price for our sins, and we are already condemned.

    I saw George Carlin in Las Vegas ,some years back.One of his llines was,"If we evolved from monkeys,why do we still havemonkeys?"Now,understand,Darwin did not invent the "Theory of Evolution",but forwarded the noion of survival of the fittest.Elitists took that notion and twisted into eugenics,eventually Hitler used the notion of eugenics to justify the elimination of "inferior' groups of people.But,the first use of extermination,was the euthanasia,human breeding programs,involuntary sterilization and marriage prohibition was started in the United States.Progressives such as Woodrow Wilson,Margret Sanger,and Oliver Wendell Holmes,supported eugenics,and it's .These programs were funded by The Carnegie Institute,and the Rockefeller Foundation.George Bernard Shaw even stated publicly that he was in favor of extermination.Governor Lamb,of Colarado,back in the 80's proclaimed tha elderly folks have a duty to die.Buried deep in the 2700 page obamacare,there are provisions for "rationing medical treatment"perhaps "death panels"?Who decides?Scientists?Gvernment officials?I see today that the Rpublicans are gathering to offer thier own version of the obamacare package.This makes the third package,firt was Romneys,second obamas,noe theRNC wants to put out another one.Science is not a religon,as some would have you believe,but a tool.I can prove the theory of evolution is a false doctrie,just look at our congress.My point is this,always,always,ALWAYS question authority!!

  • LetzBReal

    There was a time when science understood that things it could neither prove nor deny by empirical methods, it had to neglect. Therefore the concept of God and his existence were simply in the realm of unknowableness as far as scientific experimentation was concerned, although a strong case for his existence may be made from statistical and observational evidence ( the Bible does say in Romans 1:20 .. God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made..). Unlike the humble scientists of the past, we now have a new breed that arrogantly declares that evolution created the world, not an omniscient and omnipotent, eternal being! They simply cannot stomach the reality of faith and its progenitor the Creator God and so have to distance themselves from anyone professing so foolish a notion. But God says in His word: 1 Cor 1:19 For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." Dr. Carson fits this verse: James 3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

    damage (healing itself). Darwin thought simple cells were like jello. Nothing so
    mind boggling complex could spring up, on it's own, all operating harmoniously. The software
    alone that is embedded in each cell screams for intelligent design. Just as no
    amount of monkeys banging on typewriters would ever spell out a Shakespeare play. Simpy wishful thinking in man's "war against God".
    I rest my case.

      The Universe is amazing. It's fascinating. Mind boggling. From the smallest particles & sub particles to the largest celestial bodies, it is amazing. So amazing I can't believe it was all created in 6 days by one being. silver bullet.

    If evolution is the be all and end all of creation etc, then where did the first matter that started the evolutionalry path come from? Like many thilngs, a little truth built up into a myth. Actually, one knows that when people start trying to jam it down your throat, there's something missing in the truth story.

    No problemo. When these foolish scientists croke ; God won't recognize them as they were created from a bug. He ,humerously , may even step on them and says; You want to be a bug===HOW do you feel now.

    I wonder how many critics of Dr. Carson have ever heard him speak. I have, and also have read one of his
    books.
    There are few better speakers then Carson.
    Emory can learn something from this man and it will bless them.
    Where does one find such close-mindedness as to not want Dr. Carson to speak to them?

    • NonyaBidnezz

      Spend time with people that do not share your view on the world. But criticize them if you want. They have the freedom to believe differently from you, and say what they want. You have the freedom to say you don't agree. Freedom, baby!

    Since when does their religion trump christianity? Most of their religion is built on lies and misquoted science. But lieing to them is no big deal, as long as it does their dirty work.

  • Dale

    Even these learned professors do not seem to understand one simple fact. Evolution is a scientific theory. It may be a good theory. It may be a sound theory. It may make a lot of sense. And, it may not. It is not a scientific fact. The theory is constantly evolving and changing as more is discovered. That is what true science is all about. Science is about learning, not about "puffy, arrogant, correctness"!

  • Cj

    First fallacy: evolution does not state that life evolved from nothing. Quantum physics and the BB refer to origin of the universe. Second: truth is not determined by consensus but by evidence and demonstration. And science is the product of Greeks, Muslims, Chinese and whole slew of ancient non-Christian civilisations.

  • familypaladin

    I have heard Dr. Carson speak, both in small groups and in a large setting of thousands. I have never heard anything offensive to any of the audiences. This sounds like they are trying to intimidate him into following the mindset - or at least pay homage to the mindset - that a minority wish to follow. When we reach the point where minorities have the "right" to police in advance the speech of others, we have reached 1984 where mind control is actively practiced.

  • Gene Hutchins

    I have friends who are atheists and absolutely believe and argue there is not a God. They look at me as if I am fool, well they used too..!!!.

    A few weeks ago there was a discussion over coffee and they were talking about the big bang theory of the origin of the universe. They got into some discussion about the mathematics that prove this.

    Finally the discussion came to this. There are some "facts" in these theories that have not been proven.
    and some equations that must be taken in faith.

    At that point I raised this point: if these Atheists have trust and faith in unproven equations and theories,
    then they are equally as stupid as I am to believe in the existence of God.

    We both have faith!!!

  • Iron Lady

    The far-left pseudo "intellectuals" come from a fascist mindset; there is only one way to think and that is their way. They are militantly anti-freedom of thought and speech, and they belittle and blackball anyone who dares to suggest anything other than what they dictate. They are plain and simple intolerant bullies. Every college student should view "Expelled."

  • Randy Brown

    To quote Ray Stevens, "There is none so blind as he who will not see". And there is none so ignorant as over-educated idiots sworn to the godless religion of Darwinism. What is frightening is that these fools are in charge of the "education" of our nation's young. Dr. Carson can take care of himself; pray for thsoe students, that they do not become contaminated beyond recovery.

  • dondh

    This just shows where this country is heading! Far too many college and university professors are coming into our colleges and universities from outside America and bringing their anti-American philosophies and beliefs. It isn't any wonder how many of our students are behaving with attitudes contrary to our constitutional and Christian principles. There's no doubt these same principles are being pushed onto us by this administration who have similar principles as many of these foreign professors. Its time to get rid of these guys if they don't want to conform to our way of life as we who have lived here have been taught! Change as this administration advocates is not always best, which in what we are now experiencing is not ever best. This president has put into force too many things by executive priviledge without congressional approval which must be stopped. So then, if we do not get a change in November and remove all those anti-American college and university professors, America is in for big trouble in future days!

    NO ONE in their right mind could possibly believe in evolution. The so called intelligent people who do have NEVER been able to explain how flesh and blood came out of a rock - still working on that one I guess. Personally, I think it takes more faith to believe in evolution than in creation, because the idea is so preposterous and ridiculous. It is so much easier to believe..."In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth...And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." Genesis 1:1,26-27

    Dr Carson is a Model of the " American Dream " ! He also epitomizes the gospel commission to go , to be , to do ! If all Christians in America had the kind of positive impact on society that he has had , our Nation would be better off , and Christianity would have far greater credibility with skeptics ! The Faculty and Board members of Emory University would be depriving their graduates of the privilege of witnessing first-hand , the fruits of the Judeo-Christian Ethic in the person and work of Dr Carson ! He has overcome more adversity to achieve his goals than most Emory Grads will ever encounter in life ; yet he has excelled in his field , and has made the lives of thousands of seriously ill children and their parents a whole lot better than if they had never met him ! Ask his patients if it matters to them if he believes there is a Creator !

  • FGIFSP

    Einstein believed in evolution as part of God's plan. He was a devout believer in God and in religion and he saw the universe and all its properties as possible only through God. Yet there is no evidence that he ever disclaimed evolution.
    Moreover, while it has been a major project of liberals to 'demote' or dismiss God by crediting evolution with the grandeur of life and the universe, too many of my fellow believers get sucked into the "either/or" false alternatives of "God OR evolution".
    God created the universe and everything in it, including evolution. For those believers who find this too hard to swallow, they need to understand the expanse that is the Universe, which contains BILLIONS of galaxies, with EACH GALAXY containing BILLIONS of stars akin to our sun. This hardly provides evidence of an interventionist deity.
    And for all non-believers, such non-belief can be traced to psychological deficiencies during childhood.

  • PatriotDiva

    The theory of global warming is more of a political movement than a scientific movement. How else could the commies left over from the sixties get their hands in our wallets, tell us what cars to drive and how far we can drive? How else will they get us to consent to U.N. control of our thermostats while charging us exhorbitant amounts of money for fuel and energy? How else will they get the sheeple to sell their cars, move to the city and take high speed rail? It's all about CONTROL!

    One of the great ironies of our culture today is the charge made by Liberals , that Conservatives are INTOLERANT ! In Clinical Psychology , the practice of attributing to another ones own flaws , is known as PROJECTION ! I'm not a Psychologist , but I can recognize PROJECTION when I witness it . I am of the opinion that it is Liberals , in fact , who are most guilty of intolerance ! All one has to to is to watch a panel discussion on politics on CNN to see what I mean ; inevitably , when a Liberal finds himself/ herself on defense , he/she will resort to throwing " missiles " at the opposition , with name-calling and these of pejorative terms , such as " right wing radical "; Birther ; Flat Earther ; etc.

  • Renellin

    How does this grab you? Plants and animals adapt and evolve all the time. Sometimes they develop in strange ways, such as webbed feet which gets passed down in the line, like eye color does. Pro-evolutionists can point to dozens of species which clearly have changed over time. Big deal! That is a very cool part of life and getting old--sometimes you get to actually see it happen over the course of your life--much like you watch a community grow up and change. I sometimes wonder if the deer who cross the road are getting smarter, or if it is people who are getting smarter, such as knowing there is often more than one, so even if you saw it cross, slow down anyway because he might have brothers.
    Where evolution goes wrong is the sophomoric assumption that there is only one line. That first there was just this animal or single cell or whatever, and over time it grew and adapted and mutated, etc., and voila! Now we have people, the most developed and superior animal on the planet. That concept is even sillier than the idea that man is substantially impacting climate change, but it is quite typical of the mindset of Darwin's time. People were quite narcissistic then, with 'the white man's burden' and such, believing that they were destined to take over the world and rid it of savages and those 'uncivilized'. Darwin himself denounced it before he died.
    You don't have to be religious to understand this, but whether you think God or "Mother Earth" created life, of course it makes sense that we are all connected, and we are all a part of this world. I pity the atheist that looks at the world and only sees death and lifelessness.

    Nine-time elected Congressional Leader Walter Jones (R - NC) needs our help in order to move his bill(HRC-107) forward in the House of Representatives. This resolution will make it an impeachable offense for any president to send troops anywhere overseas to fight anybody, unless it is an immediate matter of National Security(ie, we are under attack). Our Constitution requires a Declaration of War by Congress before we risk the life of one American. This will make presidents think twice about assuming dictatorial powers in order to use our military & money to engage anything other than national security emergencies. He & others are very concerned about Qbama escalating the wars in the Middle East by expanding the battlefront to Syria & Iran, & possibly dragging in Russia & China to set off WWIII.

    Congressman Jones says as little as 20 calls to your local U.S. congressman would be huge in getting this bill passed. He says Americans are not putting enough pressure on their local reps, so congress is abdicating their Constitutional authority by laying down & letting the president do as he wishes with no resistance.

    Call your local reps & tell them to get behind HRC-107. That's all it takes. Jones said that his office gets emails by the 1000's & nobody has the time to read them, but phone calls will get your reps attention. Let's get behind our reps when they are trying to get this govt back under the control of we the people. Congressman Jones is an American Patriot, he is 69 years old, & he is feeling a real urgency to get America back on track before it is too late. He flat out said there is not much time left to turn this country around.

    Those jackasses at Emory need to shut the h#ll up. They don't want him to speak not because of evolution; it is because they are diehard liberals and as such would deny anyone who has the courage of his convictions to speak against their liberal views. It comes right down to Dr. Carson's freedom of speech. Notre Dame, a Catholic University, had the devil himself in the person of Obama speak at their graduation. This man represents everything a liberal hates, a person of convictions and courage contrasted with Emory's attitude of "snooty, I'm a liberal, therefore I am better than the common people" attitude. You go, Dr. Carson!

    By "evolution" I assume they are referring to the theory of evolution as stated by Charles Darwin. So what they really ment to say is "that science rests squarely on the shoulders of the theory of evolution." So the next logical step is to believe that science is a theory. When I went to school over 50 years ago we were taught that a theory was something not proved, not a fact. So they want us to believe that science is not based on fact. Sorry, I don't believe it.

  • Bruce Wicks

    Consider just the human species. Your personal interaction be you male or female with the opposite sex?
    How did we evolve from the primordial soup to become the perfect opposites capable and very desirous of reproducing? It isn't the desire to reproduce nearly as much as it is the desire for sexual satisfaction. The perfect opposites and it requires both sexes to reproduce. My question is? How did we evolve to become man and woman? Evolution or intelligient design? Think on it. It will truly boggle the mind if one gives serious consideration to the question. It is just as mystifying as considering where does the universe end. Does it?

Someone believes that oil is renewable? It is not, as God gave us everything that we needed and put it (oil, gas, etc.) in place for us to use, not misuse, just over 7000 years ago when He created everything and He rested on the 7th Day; and, amazingly, there has not been ONE NEW THING CREATED since then. +JMJ+

  • ExposeDEMLiars

    You would think a university would follow science, not political agendas. For those that follow the facts, evolution as defined by Darwin has long since been proven impossible. In the 1990's it failed the test Darwin established for validity and was downgraded from a theory to a "scientific philosophy" The reason being that science has demonstrated that evolution as defined cannot have occurred, however they still believe that "something like it" must be the answer.

    You would think that true science does not fire people because they don't agree with unproven establishment defined ideas.

  • soupson10

    Science is simply the long division method of proving the existence of GOD. To the evolutionist I say, when it is time to leave this earth, stop yourself from dying. On the other hand, when one is in an absolute life and death situation and you ask GOD for your life to be saved, it will be.

    The only basis for denying evolution is religion. Creationists believe that the Earth is only six thousand years old and plant-eating dinosaurs lived together with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, therefore they reject evolution because it doesn't fit in with their narrow views coming from the Bible.

  • MyronJPoltroonian

    I have said the following before and then, in reply to a several, severely tolerance-challenged, intellectual atheist's, I had to post a reply. Both follow:

    Just so the “Self Anointed Purveyors of ‘Truth”, don’t get their jammies in a wrinkle:

    So many divisive questions, so many divisive answers. When I was 17, having been raised to understand that “You don’t have to be in a building, to believe in God”, I decided that “God is Energy, after all, It’s everywhere”. Now, some five plus decades later, scientists in the field of “Quantum Physics/Mechanics”, with “String Theory”, have postulated that there indeed may be vibrating “Strings” of energy everywhere. Not only in interstellar, but intergalactic space as well. The other half of my postulation rests on the question: “What is thought?”. In it’s purest form, it is merely an inexplicable bit of energy. If that is also true, then that, I believe, coupled with string theory, is the mind of God. How presumptuous is mankind to believe he can truly understand the mind, let alone interpret the will of God. If I may quote Puck: “What fools these mortals be”. Beyond that, you may ask: “Does he believe there is a God?” Yes, I do. Well then, “Does he believe Jesus (of Nazareth) is the Son of God?” Again. Yes, I do, as is every (hu)man a child of God. Well. How then does he explain all the different names of God and ways of worshiping Him? As Tom Sullivan (when he was still broadcasting on the radio from Sacramento) once related, he has an Egyptian friend who noted: “There is only One God, but many different ways of worshiping Him”. “Intelligent Design” came up and how silly it is (for believing in unprovable precepts such as “Gods Hand Created the Heavens and the Earth”, which is based on unprovable, blind Faith). And this from the same crowd who believe (as do I) that the universe was created from a “Cosmic Egg” that came from they know not where, yet just was (but wasn’t for very long), that suddenly went (”Big) Bang!” and voila! We are (eventually) born. No “Leaps of Faith” there. Nope, none at all. Oh yes, their “Resurrection Theology?” “Entropy!” That’s where the energy of the “Big Bang” eventually “runs out of steam”, if you will, and everything collapses back in on itself and, “Guess What?”, it starts all over again - maybe. And they talk about “A Leap of Faith?” indeed. “What Fools We Mortals Be?” “You Betcha!”

    [The Reply to the "Tolerance-Challenged" Atheist follows]: It is strange to me that so many pass through this mortal coil with blinders on. What is as plain as the nose on my face (and a proud proboscis it is indeed) is that I’m merely trying to point out that because I was raised to believe that “You don’t have to be in a building to believe in God” (even though my middle name comes from the French for Christmas because my parents met singing carols on a Christmas Eve), “The only thing I have against ‘Organized Religion’ is that it’s so ‘Organized’ ” (and you can quote me on that). Because my father had a beautiful baritone and was always in great demand to sing at various congregations, I would sometimes go with him to rehearsals and got to see the good church folk without their “Sunday”, or “Church Face” on. Which means I came to the realization that almost all overtly religious people were all coming from the viewpoint that only their particular interpretations were the “One, True Way” regardless of what those otherwise perfectly good “Church Folk” down the street, and around the corner believed. (Sort o’ like Northern Ireland, or, and more immediately, the “Religion of Peace” vs. the rest of humanity today.)

    As to the science and cosmology of discovering not only the “how”, but, and to me the equally important of “why” the universe works: In my late adolescence and early teens, I was reading Bertrand Russell and Fred Hoyle amongst several others and was opening a wider view of man’s place in the universe in myself. It was a time when discoveries seemed to be coming at a furious pace: “Big Bang, “No Bang”, “Steady State”, oops, “Big Bang” again, “Entropy”, et cetera … . Then came Sputnik and the Space Race was on. Then came the questions: “What is God?”, followed by, “Where is Heaven?”; then: “How big and how old is the universe and how long will it last?”. To me, it was a logical conclusion to meld the two. Everyone praises Einstein’s genius (especially for his era), yet gloss over his spirituality. Especially in his later years.* It strikes me odd that so many, the “Learned” of our day pooh, pooh the very concept of something greater than themselves. Usually they pause for the briefest of moments, drawing a deep breath of of something they cannot see (yes, yes, yes, I know it can be felt, measured, etc.), letting out the weariest of sighs, and then proceed to talk down to the rest of we mere mortals, explaining how what they cannot prove nor explain fully and completely is “The One True Way” to look at the universe.

    We of today look back several centuries and chuckle at the learned fools of the day who were fervently arguing about “How many Angels can dance on the head of a pin?”. Who indeed can predict how the learned of a few centuries hence will view us? In other words, everyone has blinders. It’s up to each individual to open his own eyes and see. Curiosity, after all, is in Man’s Nature. Whither it’s the scientist or the hunter, we all want to know “What’s on the other side”. We should never stop asking. We should never stop searching. Most importantly, we should realize that we will never find all the answers because there’ll always be another question to answer, another hill to climb and another river to cross.

    * Well, since I wrote the forgoing, it appears that the "Big Bang" is once again relegated to the trash bin of formerly iron clad "Scientific Consensus".

    ** Sir Fredrick Hoyle’s “Steady State Theory”, by the way, postulated that stars (and, by extension, galaxies) simply “Appeared” to fill the void left between them by a steadily expanding universe. I.e.: “Think of a balloon’s surface with dots on it. As it expands, the distance between the dots grows further and further apart. I believe that new ones simply appear to fill the void between them”; (May I suggest Googling: [BBC Universe - Steady State theory challenged the Big Bang]).

    By the way: “Creationism" doesn’t challenge the “How” of the universe, just the “Why”.

    *** At the time of writing these words, I was not aware of the exact quotes. Here is an excerpt from a Time Magazine article dated: Thursday, April 05, 2007. Quote: " ... Einstein did, however, retain from his childhood religious phase a profound faith in, and reverence for, the harmony and beauty of what he called the mind of God as it was expressed in the creation of the universe and its laws. Around the time he turned 50, he began to articulate more clearly--in various essays, interviews and letters--his deepening appreciation of his belief in God, although a rather impersonal version of one. One particular evening in 1929, the year he turned 50, captures Einstein's middle-age deistic faith. He and his wife were at a dinner party in Berlin when a guest expressed a belief in astrology. Einstein ridiculed the notion as pure superstition. Another guest stepped in and similarly disparaged religion. Belief in God, he insisted, was likewise a superstition."

    "At this point the host tried to silence him by invoking the fact that even Einstein harbored religious beliefs. "It isn't possible!" the skeptical guest said, turning to Einstein to ask if he was, in fact, religious. "Yes, you can call it that," Einstein replied calmly. "Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible laws and connections, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in fact, religious. ... ." [Read more at: ]

    Nonyabidnezz: I have been searching for your latest reply and absolutely cannot find it. I give up. However, I will attempt to reply to your post but cut me some slack as I am doing so from memory.

    If any private person who owns a business or building and doesn't want to hire or rent to homosexuals, that is their right. I used to rent out an apartment. It should totally be my choice to NOT have two homosexuals living where I live. It also should be my right NOT to rent to a smoker or somebody who has a drug or alcohol addiction.
    Also, they are trying to force churches to hire homos on their staff. NOBODY should force them to do so. How dare the homosexual lobby demand such a thing.
    A Christian owned a dating service. Some gay perso sued because there was no homo section. WHY SHOULD THERE BE??? There are plenty of gay dating services. Again, you are forcing your agenda in places it doesn't belong.

    As to newt Gingrich and Ted haggard, both have a lot to answer for as do ALL of us. And yes, that means you too weather you like it or not.

    However, it is terribly disingenuous for you to be holding anybody to Biblical standards when you don't follow them yourself. That is the height of hypocrisy.

    Any good systems scientist knows that maintenance to be perfect, requires that it adapt to changing conditions! Why would God go to the enormous task of designing a universe that would provide an eventual solar system like ours, with a planet full of life that has to evolve continuously, if He had to monitor each and every species of life and coordinate DNA changes to adapt? The simple and correct answer is I fail to find any reason for God to not have invented a way for genetic mutations to evolve to automate the process. Therefore, our human discovery by Darwin is only an initial observation of the process by which he deduced and provided for mutations that meet the changing environment. The survivors exist because of the automation that result from the use of God's invented tool. Show me a scientist who can't agree with this theory as being superior, and I will show you a scientist that wants to assert that without him, the politicians will not know what environment conditions must be made by his effort, with taxpayer money!

    Alas the true censors, the true "intolerant," the real "McCarthys" are exposed. Rent the video "Expelled" by Ben Stein for a real eye-opener on how bigoted and closed-minded the academic and scientific communities really are. And then rent "Privileged Planet" for a phenomenal scientific exploration of how and why the universe had to have an intelligent design.

    How could such a profound scientist be so wrong? Oh yea, he's not! He's using science to do exactly what it should do! If you have no proof of something it is called a ... theory! That's right because if you can't reproduce something infinitely in an experiment or have proof (not picking up rocks and saying they're XX million years old) then you have nothing more than a theory. And if you say, "well that means God doesn't exist"... perhaps that's why the bible says one must have faith in Jesus Christ to be saved. To deny God on the basis of faith means you must deny evolution on the basis of faith because you haven't "seen" God Himself, but you've seen His creation, just as you say you've "seen" evolution or have some fossils that are human-like. Why is it that evolution suddenly doesn't happen anymore? Why is that "missing link" the only thing that can't be found? Why are there no animals magically changing into other things anymore? Come on now, this isn't Pokemon, this is real life. That's scientist is a beast and his conclusions are at best based on the foundations of science because when you can't prove evolution you have two options: make something up or give credit to God for doing what He said He did in the bible.

    This man's background is amazing. I remember his mother took him and his brother to the library every day. They changed their lives at much hardship.
