Do whatever you may…yet one still must come relatively close to argue Dr. Carson’s abilities…
For a man with an impressive educational C.V., Ben Carson makes a lot of intellectual missteps. In his September 16th debate performance, he displayed a profound lack of foreign-policy knowledge; last Sunday, when he said, on “Meet the Press,” that he “would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” he may have seriously crippled his campaign. Still, there’s one area in which Carson’s credentials have seemed unimpeachable. Many people assume that, as a successful surgeon, he has a solid knowledge of technical, medical, and scientific issues.
It is this type of heinous writing that I wish never to be involved with. This portion of questionable writing comes from The New Yorker, a magazine known for its far left leaning liberal concoctions. Specifically writing credit is given to Lawrence M. Krauss, who is Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and Director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University. He is the author “A Universe from Nothing.”
Well at least there is one notion that is consistent: That notion is that the left again has put an earth and space explorer, who happens to hold the position of Director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University, in charge of influencing millions of people on something that he knows very, very little about — Dr. Ben Carson. To outright allege that Dr. Carson “makes a lot of intellectual missteps” where he capitalizes on a reckless statement such as “he displayed a profound lack of foreign-policy knowledge; last Sunday, when he said, on “Meet the Press,” that he “would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.”
Simply dissected I find Dr. Carson’s assessment, predicated upon the sources used, the U.S. Constitution, as being wonderfully correct. Now then, what does this say about the airhead who made the disparaging statement? No help…we have nothing to say, period.
“It is hard to find a single detailed claim in his diatribe that is physically sensible or that reflects accurate knowledge about science.” To even suggest that whoever the writer who stated this has some kind of “specialized knowledge” so as to represent that Dr. Carson is losing his grasp on various matters is obscenely in very bad taste. His central claim — that the second law of thermodynamics rules out order forming in the universe after the Big Bang — is a frequent misstatement made by creationists who want to appear scientifically literate. In reality, it is completely false. Local order in parts of the universe is always possible at the expense of heat and disorder dissipated to the external environment. (Now are we to assume that all parts of the universe generate and maintain some kind of heat?)
Say whatever you like, after all you’ve got the job, and I would seriously suggest that the biggest part of your job is nothing more than talking utter and complete lines of bull feces to your editor. How else could complete unadulterated rubbish make it past Writing 101, and available for production?
According to Dr. Carson, “You have all these highfalutin scientists, and they’re saying that there was this gigantic explosion and everything came into perfect order. Now, these are the same scientists who go around touting the second law of thermodynamics, which is entropy, which says that things move toward a state of disorganization.”
Therefore as mentioned several times in this manner of citizen journalism, it is the expressed position that humankind is the only Animal that makes problems for itself meaning of course above all things humankind has developed its own annihilation and will use it.
I, as well as millions of other people who use their minds, believe that this article about Dr. Carson is nothing more than a means of disrespect and an attempt to hurt Carson’s popularity; subsequent to his rising data in the polls.
It would make us here at The Contemplative Thinker far more satisfied if a person with the credentials of Lawrence M. Krauss wrote about how a mass murderer quantified that his victims were Christians, in the unique small town of Roseburg, Oregon; notwithstanding, the hundreds of thousands that are being killed in the Middle East and Indonesia.
