In a Vine clip that has since been played nearly 100,000 times in just the first six hours of its publication, the retired neurosurgeon [Ben Carson] explained why he conceded the atheist’s claim…
“I was engaged in a debate in Hollywood with a leading atheist.” The individual, Carson explained, “thinks anybody who believes in God is a total moron.”
According to the narrative, the debate ended shortly after the atheist expressed some particularly deprecating thoughts about those who believe the biblical story of creation.
“I said, ‘You know what? You’re right,’” …“I believe I came from God,” he told the other individual, “and you believe you came from a monkey; and you’ve convinced me you’re right.”
