Billionaire landlord, hotel magnate, television star and self-described Tea Partier Donald Trump is turning up the heat on President Barack Obama, insisting that after three weeks of probing the question, he is now more convinced than ever that the president has failed to prove he is a citizen of the United States.The Neurosurgeon, a creationist:
“Three weeks ago when I started, I thought he was probably born in this country,” Trump, who is very publicly mulling his own run for the Republican nomination for president in 2012, told TODAY’s Meredith Vieira. “Right now, I have some real doubts.”
In a “Faith & Liberty” interview posted last week, potential GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson discussed his rejection of the theory of evolution, arguing that the science of evolution is a sign of humankind’s arrogance and belief “that they are so smart that if they can’t explain how God did something, then it didn’t happen, which of course means that they’re God. You don’t need a God if you consider yourself capable of explaining everything.”Let me just say that no Darwinian ever postulated that the eyeball evolved "over night" and that it shows his vast ignorance of science to say so. Also, let me ask this: why would an intelligent designer need to design in "his creatures" the ability to adapt? Adapt to what? A changing environment? Didn't the intelligent designer design that, too?
He claimed that “no one has the knowledge” of the age of the earth “based on the Bible,” adding that “carbon dating and all of these things really don’t mean anything to a God who has the ability to create anything at any point in time.”
Carson pointed to the “complexity of the human brain” as proof that evolution is a myth: “Somebody says that came from a slime pit full of promiscuous biochemicals? I don’t think so.”
He said evolution is unable to explain the development of an eyeball: “Give me a break. According to their scheme, it had to occur over night, it had to be there. I instead say, if you have an intelligent creator, what he does is give his creatures the ability to adapt to the environment so he doesn’t have to start over every fifty years creating all over again.”
And finally, the tech-exec, a liar:
Republican presidential contender Carly Fiorina has fiercely defended her claim during the GOP debate last week that undercover Planned Parenthood video footage shows a “fully formed fetus” alive on a table as “someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.”The video that doesn't exist.
Fiorina again refused to back away from these comments during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” after host Chris Wallace said that her call for the defunding of Planned Parenthood was her “biggest moment of the debate,” but questioned the accuracy of her statements.
“Do you acknowledge what every fact-checker has found that as horrific as that scene is, it was only described on the video by someone who claimed to have seen it?” he said. “There is no actual footage of the incident that you just mentioned.”
But Fiorina wasn’t willing to agree with this sentiment.
“No, I don’t accept that at all. I’ve seen the footage,” she responded. “I find it amazing, actually, that all these supposed fact-checkers in the mainstream media claim this doesn’t exist. They’re trying to attack the authenticity of the video tape.”
This is the best the GOP can do right now? This?
Yes, sadly. This is the best the GOP can do right now; a birther, a creationist and a liar.
