VIDEO: This NBC Host Asks Ben Carson How Christian Faith and Science Coexist, and His Response is Perfection

Liberals just love to pretend that Christians are drooling idiots who can’t square their faith with science. When Dr. Ben Carson was confronted with this idiocy on NBC’s Meet the Press, he gave an awesome smackdown to the patronizing liberal blowhard.

So OF COURSE NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Dr. Carson how his belief in science and Christian faith could co-exist. (I have a really hard time believing he’d ask a liberal a question of that nature.) The question is ridiculous at the core. Liberals view “science” as a list of untouchable absolutes. (Yet they deny the very nature of absolute truth in every other forum, especially with religious and moral issues. They’re incredibly selective.) We’re constantly proving and disproving scientific theories, but liberals only hold on to “science” when it backs up their political worldviews. If anything, they’re the selective ones. I mean, how much have you heard them talk about the growing Antarctic Sea ice lately? Anyone? Bueller? Point being, they’re called theories for a reason.

That’s the direction Carson was going in. He said a lot of their “science” is just a bunch of propaganda. This was his response, and it’s awesomesauce.

I personally believe that a person’s religious beliefs are the things that make them who they are, gives them a direction in their life. But I do not believe that religious beliefs should dictate one’s public policies and stances. I find a very good measure of correlation between my religious beliefs and my scientific beliefs. People say, ‘How can you be a scientist, how can you be a surgeon, if you don’t believe in certain things?’ Maybe those things aren’t scientific. Maybe it’s just propaganda.

You know, I think what we should — I’m always willing to sit down and discuss things. And people who say, ‘Well, you have to believe this, you have to believe that,’ I’m willing to discuss with them why they believe what they believe, and why I believe what I believe, but that can’t be done in a soundbyte type-of interview. It needs to be done in a forum where you can sit down and deeply explain why you believe what you believe.

Some of the most famous scientists were also Christians, and their religious beliefs fueled their scientific study, not hindered it. Of course, the real problem here is that liberals can’t understand how someone can believe in something they don’t understand, because tolerance to them is only a club to use to beat conservatives with, not something that they actually believe in.
