Ben Carson: I’m A Famous Neurosurgeon Because God Gave Me The Answers To My Chemistry Final In A Dream (VIDEO)

Dr. Ben Carson is just the latest in an ever-increasing line of loons competing for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. Well, he recently spoke at a National Day of Prayer event where he showed people just how crazy he really is. During his speech, Carson turned to God. Of course, since it was a prayer event, this is to be expected. However, things got truly bizarre when Carson credited God with his good grade in a Chemistry class during his first year at Yale. He admitted to slacking off, to having a failing grade going into the final exam. Okay, anyone who has ever slacked off in school or had a class that was just so incredibly tough that they didn’t think they’d make it through has likely prayed or hoped for a miracle. I’ll give him that. Many a student has prayed or hoped for a miracle in those circumstances. What makes Carson’s story so crazy, though, is that he attributed his getting an A on that final to God giving him an answer in a dream the night before. Carson says of his miraculous experience:

“When I went to take the test the next morning, it was like ‘The Twilight Zone.’ I opened that book and I recognized the first problem as one of the ones I dreamed about. And the next, and the next, and the next, and I aced the exam and got a good mark in chemistry. It worked out okay and I promised the Lord he would never have to do that for me again.”

Now, Ben Carson is one of the most renowned and brilliant neurosurgeons in the country, perhaps even in the world. He says that he was studying the chemistry problems, and fell asleep during his study session. His professional knowledge of the human brain should have led him to at least consider that perhaps, because the chemistry problems were the last thing he looked at prior to drifting off, chemistry was in his subconscious, and therefore was what he dreamed of. Further, it is quite common for college study guides to have problems that are on the actual exam. But, instead of thinking of the logical reason for his dream about the exam problems, Carson jumped to God, essentially dismissing his own well-known brilliance, and giving an invisible sky person the credit for, essentially, his own hard work that got him to where he is today- all because he dreamed about some test answers. Watch Carson’s re-telling of his “miracle” below:

What is truly frustrating about this is the fact that someone can be so brilliant in one area of life- in Dr. Carson’s case, neurological science- yet so absolutely moronic in so many others. He is a complete and utter Uncle Tom, busily licking the backsides of every GOP shill, and has said many truly nutty things, such as suggesting that going to prison makes people gay, and implying that President Obama’s good looks make him some kind of psychopath. Now, he is crediting a dream from God with his neurosurgery career.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t want someone who is so obviously insane anywhere near the Oval Office.
