Carson Preaches at Church, Defends Creationism

Republican presidential front-runner Ben Carson, standing up to his critics, is defending his belief in creationism. The retired pediatric neurosurgeon makes it clear he accepts biblical explanations, rather than scientific notions like evolution, the Daily Mail reported.

Carson gave a pair of sermons Sunday at the Cornerstone Church in Madison, Tenn. An accidentally released video of one of the speeches shows him saying: “Secular progressives ... like to criticize me. ‘Carson, he’s a scientist, but he thinks God created the world.’ Well, I like to criticize them because they can’t tell me where anything came from.”

The candidate, a Seventh-day Adventist, questioned how anyone can believe in the big bang. “It just happened, that everything was just (great) and well organized? … Come on, give me a break. That requires a lot more faith that it takes to believe in God, I gotta tell you,” he told the congregation.

The Tennessean reported that in the other sermon, Carson preached: “They say, ‘Carson, ya know, how can you be a surgeon, a neurosurgeon, and believe that God created the Earth, and not believe in evolution, which is the basis of all knowledge and all science?’ Well, you know, it’s kind of funny, but I do believe God created us, and I did just fine.”

According to the Daily Mail, Carson is trying to build upon his popularity with religious conservatives, a large faction in the Republican party.
