    It would be nice of you told me what the hell you were talking about.

    What's that have to do with anything? You don't have an argument, so you attack his religion? Do yourself a favor, and try to stick to the topic.

    My argument is so clear a blind person can see it: the man believes that the Earth is a couple thousand years old, which to any human being with a functional brain knows is WAY off the mark, so when people claim such things, in the face of irrefutable science, you have to question their entire mindset, especially when they say, "Obamacare is the worst thing since slavery."

    So, people that have faith are without a "functional brain" eh?

    I'm willing to put Dr. Carson's brain up against yours any day of the week.

    There's a difference between "having faith" and "believing absolutely whackadoodle things that are easily disprovable." Like, say, Young Earth Creationism.

    While I have no doubt Dr. Carson is a brilliant surgeon (he's extremely highly regarded, and he's on staff at Johns Hopkins), that doesn't make him any more qualified to comment on legislation -- even insurance legislation; being a physician does not mean they necessarily understand all the intricacies of insurance, that's why doctors have people to do that for them -- than anyone else.

    Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a brilliant astrophysicist, but I wouldn't ask him to fix my car.

    That certainly wouldn't mean that Tyson doesn't know exactly what is wrong with your car nor would it mean he couldn't fix your car.
