what is the evidence of this?

His belief about the pyramids is evidence because it so massively, stupidly, ignorantly, flagrantly, idiotically wrong.

His world view hinders his faculties. He is unfit to be president. Drinking Beverage

I agree with you if the theory can effect somebody's life in destructive, negative way.
BC's ideas about pyramids will never effect anybody in this kind of way.
So, I don't care about this kind of theories.

P.S. I believe that BC can be as good president as he is good doctor. Thumbsup

Quote:BC's ideas about pyramids will never effect anybody in this kind of way.


If a candidate for the president of the US doesn't understand basic history or has a foggy interpretation of the past strongly viewed through the clouded glasses of religious, it sure as hell DOES affect everybody. How someone views the past affects how he or she sees the future and therefore how that person governs. This indirectly affects the citizens of this country.

The best presidents we've had have a tremendous understanding of history. The best leaders know history like the back of their hands, from Genghis Khan to Alexandria the Great, from Richard the Third to Saladan.

You're guy is an idiot and would be one of the most embarrassingly ignorant people to occupy the White House.....ever. Other world leaders would laugh at his nonsense and immense stupidity. For shit sakes, he makes George Bush 2 look like Einstein.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Then are you asking for the evidence that he knows how to separate conjoined twins based on your responses to people responding to your post?

Because the evidence of his lack of knowledge of the details of what a president needs to consider are plastered all through his life and campaign. His ignorance on routine commonplace political concepts like mentioned before, his lack of information in answering questions on policy when asked to define specifics, his non-understanding of simple differing philosophical positions, his lack of negotiation/relation across many boundaries is also glaring too. All he has going for him is he was a neuroscientist and he is soft on all political issues with canned non-responses of "i'm not on either side here" attitude. (direct example his black relation & immigration comments) There's a reason it's not surprising to anyone on the debate supposed to be focused on economics he spoke the least of any considered candidate.

All of this has already been brought up on this forum in multiples ways before with direct quotes or clips of his comments on such things. Any insistence of he did great things as a neurosurgeon so he can be good at X other thing is just blatantly fallacious reasoning.

I'm not sure (nor interested).

He may be good doctor. So what? It does not mean that he will be good president.

RE: Ben Carson's unusual theory about pyramids
Wow, thats one hell of a theory... I always thought they where landigplatforms for aliens, but this makes much mor sense. Must be a real bummer though I you're a pharao and your people just say: Fuck this, I'm not building a crypt. Just throw him in the grain storage and be done with it.

But seriously, this guy is up for presidency? And there are people who actually would support him? That's... disturbing.

RE: Ben Carson's unusual theory about pyramids
So that's why Joseph the Amazing Technicolor Guy had the dream about seven years of feast and seven years of famine.

The Egyptians originally built the pyramids as grain storage, until they came to realize that those tiny hallways in the structure mean it can barely hold any grain... and started building hollow-centered granaries instead of solid stone ones. When they were figuring out Egypt's National Grain Reserves, someone was slick and covered his butt by adding in the useless, old pyramid-type granaries in the total, to inflate his numbers. Joseph realized in his dream that they'd accidentally rely upon the poor granaries just when the worst food years in a row were going to come, and the Egyptians started using only the hollow ones in their papyrwork (geddit?) just in time to fill them before the coming drought.

Ben Carson either has something wrong with his brain, or he's a very smart man who's trying to figure out what "Honey Boo Boo" would say, and walking a fine line of spewing the kind of idiotic stuff that'll make him beloved of the "Base voter" of the GOP, so as to make himself palatable for a Southern "polite racists" to say he's their "This is My Black Friend", and not a threat to their tiny, tiny little worlds. They always mention how "soft-spoken" he is!

I'm hoping it's the latter, that he's playing horrible, cynical politics. I'd hate to believe anyone who is capable of rationalizing things in the way Carson's brain operates (or doesn't, as the case may be) was allowed to pick up a scalpel for any reason, let alone do surgery. And yet, I am led to understand that he was a masterful surgeon; my only conclusion is either a degree of cognitive dissonance too great to be credible to me, or else this guy is a master player trying to get to the top in the GOP. For power, men might do anything, and convince themselves even that they did rightly.

But oh, the horror if he's really even a legitimate contender for that seat. Really this whole GOP field, this year. It is not healthy, what they are spewing and what people are cheering along with... I shudder to watch the GOP going this route.

I dunno. I've seen this kinda bullshit spewed by people I consider to be functional adults. I mean, they can operate a microwave and wipe their own butts fer Chrissakes. Never seen one of 'em do brain surgery though, I have to admit, though some of them are probably gung-ho enough to have a stab at it.
