Give It Up, Ben

So, now Ben Carson is saying that science is just fairy tales, and that Charles Darwin got the idea for evolution from Satan.

And everyone says, "how can Ben say that- after all, he is a scientist."

Well, Ben has motivated me to make a belligerent point.  Surgeons are not scientists.  They are people who have been extensively trained to perform physical acts with extreme precision.  That makes them more like plumbers than nuclear physicists.  So let's stop pretending that Ben's success as a surgeon gives him any greater insight into science than anyone else.  Because, it clearly doesn't.

I can not believe this guy made it through med school. Every time he speaks, he sounds like he's been lobotomized.

Maybe he performed the procedure on himself.
