Dr. Ben Carson-Candidate of 2016!

Doctor Ben Carson a surgeon of Baltimore Maryland is most famous for separating conjoined twins.  His biography is here though Politico disagrees with particular points about his history. In late 20015 Dr. Carson was polling well sometimes second to Donald Trump  but by 2016 he was lagging badly in the polls. Perhaps some things he had said in his book and in real life had changed public opinion about him. For instance he claimed that as a youth he attempted to stab someone and a belt buckle blocked his blade however CNN questions that story. Perhaps his threats to leave the Republican Party in December had some affect on his poll numbers. 

Carson also believes evolution is inspired by Satan, “I personally believe that this theory that Darwin came up with was something that was encouraged by the adversary, and it has become what is scientifically, politically correct,” and he believes the big bang theory is a fairy tale.

Carson believes the Great Pyramids were not built for Pharaohs. "My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain," Carson said  "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."

Oh and Dr. Carson thinks America is like Nazi Germany.

Dr. Carson experienced a very bad new year on January 1st when his campaign manager and some 20 other campaign workers quit. There was even worse news for Carson when four members of his campaign team were in a fatal car accident in Iowa. His campaign was suspended but he has begun to resume campaigning but at the Strangest Adventures we say, don’t bother. Dr. Ben Carson has done some very interesting  and wondrous  things in his life but running for president is not one of them!

The candidate actually has this painting in his house.
