    Sorry, Dr. Ben Carson. I don't like his views and think he is a little, shall I say strange, but everyone is free to run.

    He must have skipped the multiple classes on biology in college then. He should stay a surgeon, by all indications he is an excellent surgeon. However, he is also a treasure trove of shear lunacy when interviewed.

    How many years has Carson spent researching evolution?

    Evolution is a fact. The age of the Earth is a fact. This isn't about opinions.

    One of my biggest issues with Obama in 2008 outside of policy/ideological differences was his extreme dearth of experience. He is easily in the top 3 for least experienced Presidents in this countries history, with a fair argument for being the least.

    Ben Carson makes 2008 Obama look like a savy and seasoned veteran.

    Absolutely positively not. The Presidency of the United States of America should not be trusted to a rank amateur that says a good speech involving ideological rhetoric but who is completely and utterly outside of his actual work experience.

    Yes, things evolve and the age of the earth is not definite.

    That would be the logical conclusion, yes. The alternative is that he does respect the scientific method, but has chosen to eschew it as he cannot let go of his prior beliefs. That is even worse.

    Of course not.
    It's the same principle. I do not want someone representing me who is unable to comprehend facts. My criticism isn't towards those who think Ben Carson or Barack Obama would be a good leader, my criticism is to those who are actually in power themselves. I don't really care if someone thinks Carson or Obama would be a good leader, their beliefs don't affect my life. The presidents beliefs would.

    I know, I don't think I've said anything that would suggest otherwise.

    You can make this a partisan issue all you want. I'm not making this criticism because he's right and I'm left. In the grand scheme of things, I don't mind differences of opinion, they are healthy. More taxes, less taxes, more privatization, less privatization. Whatever, I can deal with that. What I do mind, is an inability to comprehend fact. Ignorance needs to be stamped out of our leadership and that is decided at the voting booth.

    The age of the earth is quite definite. Although we only know its age within a certain margin of error.
