-On Wednesday, asked about his belief after a book-signing in Florida, Carson stood by his theory and explained it.

"The pyramids were made in a way that they had hermetically sealed compartments," he said. "You would need that if you were trying to preserve grain for a long period of time."

But those sealed compartments had dead pharaohs in them. And they weren't very big. Most of the pyramid was solid.

But then, reality and Ben Carson are not well-acquainted.

“There comes a time when people with values simply have to stand up. Think about Nazi Germany. Most of those people did not believe in what Hitler was doing. But did they speak up? Did they stand up for what they believe in? They did not, and you saw what happened.”

- Carson comparing Democrats and those who voted for President Obama to Nazis.

Seven years ago, there were a number of people who posted the truth about the man who subsequently became the POTUS and they were absolutely savaged as racists and bigots by the same people who are posting on this thread.

If those people couldn't criticise a Black man's character without being considered racists, you don't get to do it either..

I don't think anyone disputes that Carson has done a lot for the human race. That doesn't qualify you for the Whitehouse.

 Ben Carson should seriously consider dropping the C in his last name and become Ben Arson, because he has pretty much torched his campaign with his liar liar pants on fire routine.

I am seeing more often these days, people placing the end result of progressive policies at the door of Islam. I thought 'progressive ideology' was religiously tolerant and accepting of other ideals. I didn't think a whole lot about it, until I saw that the new Mayor claims to be a progressive. I hope this isn't true, and if it is I hope he understands that a progressive agenda will leave his grand children being slaves to the Islamic revolution that is just now heating up. Glenn beck is Right, Sharia will come if we don't stop being progressive appeasers. I hope we didn't just elect a weak liberal at a time of potential outside conflict for us all.

If you aren't in favor of progress, then you must be in favor of going backwards. Say, to the Middle Ages? When superstition ruled over reason? Let's face it. You people who panic about "Sharia" law--without even understanding what it is--would LOVE to live under a theocracy in which your crazy beliefs were forced on everyone.

He just can't stop.

He's lied about almost everything concerning his upbringing including lying about being not only accepted to West Point, but being offered a full ride- never happened. There's the pyramid thing... The supplement scandal... The $10 from God story... Now, it turns out his headliner story about being an angry, aggressive teen who stabbed someone and was turned around by God........also BS.

It's not just a matter of lying, it's a matter or understanding the concepts of reality. I mean, this guy seriously thinks that a biblical figure worked with God to build the pyramids to store grain, and the Egyptian stuff was all just a miss interpretation by archaeologists. No joke. He's a young Earth creationist who believes that people lived right alongside dinosaurs and that fossilized evidence that points to the contrary was placed there by the devil in order to lead people astray.

I fully understand that he has contributed a great amount to the medical community, however that does not in any way give him the credentials for office. He's an artist with a scalpel, however being brilliant in just one area does not speak to overall intelligence. I knew a raving, homeless lunatic who was certain that the government was controlling us through fluoride tablets... Yet he was the single greatest pianist I'd ever come across. I see these people as comparable. Brilliant in one aspect. Bat shjt crazy in another.

How are we even remotely considering this person a viable candidate?

This has to stop.

I am in favor of progress, which way? We can progress towards a theocracy, a democracy, a dictatorship full of executive decisions, totalitarianism,etc . Don't insinuate that people can progress in only one way or directions, that would be very ignorant to assume. I chose to progress towards freedom and democracy, not a pseudo invasion through executive fiat.

However you must be crazy if you think the word "progress" means some utopian result of a liberal policy. Because this utopia will mean martyrdom for Christians.

The liberal policy, and choice for the progressive path, will lead to Sharia law. I am simply pointing out that very soon, the liberals will be forced to admit they were wrong as the mask begins coming off. The world can now, and will in the future, understand the progressive agendas end result. I just hope this new Mayor isn't a Muslim sympathizer that thinks we can only progress on a path that will enslave our daughter to a Muslim theocracy. I think he is.

There really is nothing more progressive than knowing that your theocracy is superior to another theocracy.

I've read so many anti-Muslim and anti-Atheist posts here.

Is this really how the people of this town feel? Are you really so open to hate those who are unlike you?

Buddhists,
Jews,
Hindu,
Atheists,
Muslims,

They are all members of this community. They are the business owners and hair dressers. The handymen and the councilmen. They live here quietly amoung the conservative Christians for fear of retribution.

What happened to acceptance? What happened to, love thy neighbor? Judge not?

Ben Carson instituting a fundamentalist Christian theocracy thought our government is no better than someone instituting a Muslim theocracy. This is the land of the free, particularly freedom of religion. The separation of church and state is there for a reason. It is there to prevent the persecution of those who are not like you, those who are not amoung the masses. Remember, the world is bigger than you.

My old catholic church members haven't been charged in any hate crimes that I know of. People can see through your rants of persecution with the facts on the ground.

So, you're essentially saying that all Muslims are evil and all Catholics are good?

I'll be sure to let the abused altar boys know that no Catholic has ever done anything terrible. Before casting judgement outward, look inward.

There are horrific groups and individuals in every organization.

You are aware that the Islamic State and Islam Religion are not the same thing right?

It's no different than saying Westboro Church represents the feeling of all Christians.

Narrow minded bigots have their brains nailed closed and it makes them happy. What can you do? They listen to the rightwing nut jobs and believe every crazy delusion. It is a pathetic way to go through life but I guess they like it.

Me? I don't worry about another religion being terrible because I have enough trouble with ANY religion trying to run my life. I don't believe in fairies and I spend a lot of my time rolling my eyes as a consequence.

Yes, every Muslim is EVIL. EVERY SINGLE ONE. Of course, Brandy KNOWS every single Muslim and so he can state this unequivocally. Every single one, including my friend the pediatrician in Australia who is Lady Gaga fan, doesn't wear any face or hair covering, and has absolutely no desire to kill anyone. Oops.

Ignore bigoted fear mongers. They can't be reasoned with and love their little paranoid fantasies. (Like John Hollowed is going to suddenly become Muslim because he is mayor of a tiny little town in eastern Montana because that is the way to power? WTF?) For some reason it makes them feel important.

And please, whatever you do, don't elect any more, either.

As usual Wendy is comparing apples to oranges. Timothy was a terrorist, and we stopped him. why not stop radical Islam as well. Not support their growth to the extinct that they will be to powerful to ever escape from. The difference is you want to stop the Christian terrorist and help advance the islamist ones. The liberals have "in essence" choose what they see to be the lesser of two evils. I am saying they got it wrong.

And Carlos, I didn't say Catholics are good and Muslims are bad, so don't make stuff up, just because it sounds better for your argument. But my old alter boy buds are a good group of guys, but the pope is crooked. I am say that the Christian ideals that are prevalent in this country are under attack by foreign cultures and beliefs. These same cultures and beliefs are diametrically opposed to the freedoms and liberties that we as Americans hold to be god given, and that god is the same as the protestant one.

See, the thing I don't get about rightwing nuts is their total lack of logical thinking skills.

I am a liberal progressive. I am in favor of single payer healthcare, equal rights for women and minorities and a government that is responsive to the needs of those governed.

By some bizarre twist of non logic, Brandy has decided this means I want to live under a theocracy that is even more misogynistic than Christianity.

What part of women's rights translates to Islamic theocracy? What part of equal rights for minorities translates to "I want to practice a particular religion." What part of decent healthcare as a human right translates to any desire to be dominated by yet another Middle Eastern religion?

There is NO logic to the conclusion that because I want progress that means I want to go live in a medieval theocracy. The connection is simply not there. In fact, it is completely 180° WRONG.

But Glen Bonkers and Rush Windbag tell the brandied apple that they know what I (as a liberal feminist) want when they are completely opposed to everything I believe in. Why believe people who not only don't understand me but openly dislike me to tell you what I want? Why not ask me?

I don't want a religious theocracy. PERIOD. Don't care whose it is.

I want equal rights for women and minorities. I want adequate healthcare and access to food as human rights. I want to stop killing each other over superstitions.

None of those things actually mean "I WANT TO BE MUSLIM" but, for some inexplicable reason, brandied apple THINKS that is what they mean.

Let me make this very clear. Glen Bonkers and Rush Windbag et al DO NOT SPEAK FOR ME. They do not have a CLUE what I want as a liberal progressive.

And neither does the brandied apple.

However, I would like some apple brandy.

Now, now. Dr. Carson said "federal office" which is technically true because there was no Federation at the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Many signers were members of their local legislative bodies and were elected by those bodies to serve in the Continental Congress. So if you want to get picky then Carson is right. But the fact remains that the signers were highly experienced in law making and governing.

Original Post

“You are absolutely right — I have no political experience,” Carson wrote in the Facebook post that has now been edited. “The current Members of Congress have a combined 8,700 years of political experience. Are we sure political experience is what we need. Every signer of the Declaration of Independence had no elected office experience. What they had was a deep belief that freedom is a gift from God. They had a determination to rise up against a tyrannical King. They were willing to risk all they had, even their lives, to be free.”

Well, since I don't know any "white supremist" I'll just have to take your word on that. However the Christian are becoming separatist in the 1st world nations, because they are being required to bare the brunt of forced integration polices placed on them by progressives that care less about them and their nations borders, and more about invading them borders.

The majority of Syrians are not flee the violence, or they would have stopped after crossing the Syrian border into safety. But overwhelmingly they aren't, they are traversing much further north to nations that don't share their borders like Germany and Sweden. This is to meet an integration policy , or to conquer, probably both.

Come to terms with this "Progressive policies of integration lead to Islamic world domination".

This article from the Alantic soundly debunks your theory. You can read the entire text here: 
http://www.theatlantic.co...ns/416085/

To be sure, the Islamic State doesn’t only define its enemies militarily. Its statement of responsibility also referenced those in France who “dare to curse our Prophet,” a reference to the attacks this January, claimed by al-Qaeda’s Yemen branch, against the French magazine Charlie Hebdo for publishing cartoons poking fun at the Prophet Muhammad. But as repulsive as the Hebdoattack was, it still wasn’t motivated, as Rubio suggests, by hatred of liberal democracy per se. Had the jihadists merely wanted to strike at tolerance and free speech, they could have attacked any French university, bookstore, library, or publication. The assailants, Said and Cherif Kouachi, chose Charlie Hebdobecause, in their twisted worldview, mocking Muhammad represents a form of war against Islam. In Cherif’s words, “We defend the prophet.”

Obviously, explaining the Islamic State’s attacks does not in any way justify them. Only a totalitarian sees cartoons as an act of war. And viewing Friday’s attacks as a response to French foreign policy, as opposed to French liberalism, does not make French foreign policy wrong. It was the Islamic State’s genocidal attacks on the minority Yazidi sect in August 2014 that drew the United States and its European allies into the war against the group in the first place. Both morally and strategically, limiting—and ultimately eliminating—the Islamic State’s nightmarish dominion over millions of human beings justifies war.

But a just war is still a war. Contra Rubio, the struggle against the Islamic State is absolutely “geopolitical,” and it has everything to do with America’s “military assets in the Middle East.” Women drive in Costa Rica too, but the Islamic State is unlikely to attack it, because Costa Rica is not contesting ISIS’s control of the Middle East. The United States and France are challenging that control, and as long as they are, the Islamic State will try to attack them. America’s domestic freedoms, precious as they are, don’t have much to do with it.

In response to those who feel the issue here is Islam:

I'm really not even sure how this thread turned from Ben Carson to Islam destroying the world, however:

Ben Carson has a huge frontal lobe. Just ask him.

He's smarter than an animal. He can think.

Goes to show that just because you have the capability to do something, doesn't mean you'll be prone to actually doing it.

The only way that Europe can become self reliant and get off of Russian natural gas is for the south pars gas field pipeline "turkey Saudi pipeline" to become reality "quickly".
But Russia and Assad are not letting that happen, so they can not get the gas from the north dome to Europe. Maintaining Russia's strangle hold on the EU.
These are the "pipeline wars" look for Baluchistan to be rock with some new rounds of violence. they set in the right spot to be attacked by Nato back business interest. They also host a large Chinese refinery and depots. If I could purchase some type of a stock or option on this call, I would be pleased.
We Nato are trying to dictate the new silk roads of not just oil, but of general commerce, and it is as Obamas has suggested, "if we don't right the rules then someone else will". And he is 100% correct.

DES MOINES (The Borowitz Report)—In a major foreign-policy announcement on Wednesday, the Republican Presidential candidate Ben Carson unveiled a detailed plan to Google Syria.

Speaking in Iowa, the retired neurosurgeon told an audience of supporters, “Any responsible policy on Syria must begin with a fact-finding mission, and such a mission must begin with Googling.”

He said that “Google holds the key” to many questions about Syria. “Where is it? Who lives there? How many square miles is it? These are all things that have to be pinned down,” he said.

Carson, who leads several Republican Presidential polls, said that while his search for answers would start with Google, he would “not rule out” seeking information at Wikipedia and beyond. “No Web site should be taken off the table at this time,” he said.

In closing, he said that he had “no plans” to Google Egypt, since he was already extremely well versed in that nation’s history.

"When I see a 9/11 victim family on television, or whatever, I'm just like, 'Oh shut up' I'm so sick of them because they're always complaining."
- Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program," September 9, 2005

"I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. ... No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out. Is this wrong? I stopped wearing my What Would Jesus -- band -- Do, and I've lost all sense of right and wrong now. I used to be able to say, 'Yeah, I'd kill Michael Moore,' and then I'd see the little band: What Would Jesus Do? And then I'd realize, 'Oh, you wouldn't kill Michael Moore. Or at least you wouldn't choke him to death.' And you know, well, I'm not sure."
– Glenn Beck responding to the question "What would people do for $50 million?", "The Glenn Beck Program," May 17, 2005

"I have been nervous about this interview with you because what I feel like saying is, 'Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies. ... And I know you're not. I'm not accusing you of being an enemy, but that's the way I feel, and I think a lot of Americans will feel that way."
– Glenn Beck interviewing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the first Muslim U.S. congressman, Glen Beck's show on CNN's Headline News, Nov. 14, 2006


Anyone who uses Glenn Beck as a credible reference, needs to either further their education or refrain from conversation.
