Baltimore Fishbowl first wrote about Baltimore’s illustrious Dr. Ben Carson 2.5 years ago, in a post about his seemingly improbable dream of a White House bid. We clearly turned out to be wrong on the “seemingly improbable” part. But in that 2013 post, we did mention one fact about Carson that’s recently been getting a little more scrutiny–namely, the fact that he doesn’t believe in evolution.

This week, Buzzfeed offered a closer examination on the neuroscientist’s take on established scientific theories. In a 2012 speech, Carson described the big bang theory as one of several “fairy tales” pushed by “highfalutin scientists.”

He also said that he believed Charles Darwin, the scientist who came up with the theory of evolution, might have had some outside help: “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,” Carson told his audience.
