Dr. Ben Carson, the distinguished pediatric neurosurgeon now giving Donald Trump a run for his money, does not believe in evolution. I never know what to think when someone like Carson says something like that. Are we to believe that during his long and very successful medical career, he never prescribed any antibiotics save penicillin because he did not believe that strains of bacteria could evolve that are immune to the very first antibiotic? Somehow I doubt it. Carson explained his decision in 2013 to enter politics thus: "I believe it is a very good idea for physicians, scientists, engineers, and others trained to make decisions based on facts and empirical data to get involved in the political arena".
This is a very strange country.
