I’ve maintained for quite a while now that Ben Carson is just too crazy to be president. Even after all these months that he’s been an official presidential candidate, I still don’t get how he’s gained the support that he has. I don’t hesitate for a second to say that I would much rather seen Donald Trump as our next president than Ben Carson. It’s not just that I disagree with him on just about everything, it’s that he’s completely unqualified and unfit to be president.
When I call someone like Ted Cruz “crazy,” it’s mostly hyperbole. When I say I believe Ben Carson is crazy, I legitimately mean it.
Take for instance comments that recently surfaced from 1998 where Carson professed his belief that the pyramids in Egypt weren’t, in fact, built as tombs for pharaohs – but as storages for grain by the biblical character Joseph:
“My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain. Now all the archeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs’ graves. But, you know, it would have to be something awfully big if you stop and think about it. And I don’t think it’d just disappear over the course of time to store that much grain.
“And when you look at the way that the pyramids are made, with many chambers that are hermetically sealed, they’d have to be that way for various reasons. And various of scientists have said, ‘well, you know there were alien beings that came down and they have special knowledge and that’s how-’ you know, it doesn’t require an alien being when God is with you.”
I’m not even going to bother trying to explain how absolutely asinine his comments are. Ben Carson is either too ignorant to understand the scientific and historic facts about the pyramids, or he simply refuses to believe those facts because he would rather conjure up some ridiculous biblical explanation for why they exist.
Let’s not forget, this is also someone who believes the theory of evolution is derived from the devil and the Earth was literally created in six days.
In my opinion, Ben Carson defines the term “idiot savant.” I have no idea how, with the litany of really stupid Ben Carson quotes that are out there, he managed to become a world-renowned brain surgeon. He doesn’t even seem to grasp reality or understand how the government works.
While I still have my doubts about Carson’s staying power atop the GOP presidential polls, the fact that he even managed to make it to where he has at this stage in the game is a true testament to how ridiculous the Republican party has become.
