So says Ben Carson. an entertaining commentary on His beiefs http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/ben-carsons-scientific-ignorance?intcid=mod-most-popular more authoritative critique While He seems to have a live and let live philosophy i.e. I believe what I want to and you believe what you want to, if He were president could He in good conscience allocate government funds for "fairy tales" as He believes the Big Bang Theory is. With the growing ranks of fundamentalists might He have enough support to reduce funding for scientific investigations via the NSF budget. Might we see representatives of our community sitting before a congressional committee defending their research. Or more importantly Is he undermining our nations faith in science. With an ever strained federal budget will His beliefs still be able to influence NSF funding?
