Former neurosurgeon and 2016 presidential hopeful Ben Carson didn’t have to study or have a chemistry tutor for his college classes. He got his answers directly from the ULTIMATE chemistry tutor — God himself, in a dream!
At Friday’s National Prayer Breakfast, the wacky doc claims he aced his chemistry final exam thanks to the Lord, and explained that his plans of being a doctor were nearly destroyed because he was failing chemistry. Even if he had gotten an A on the final, he wouldn’t have passed the class, he says. HOWEVER, he got an entitlement (which he hates): the professor agreed to give students double credit on the final. When he heard this, Carson prayed to God for a miracle.
He didn’t end up studying, though. He fell asleep and that’s when the psychic dream came upon him. He said that in the dream, he was alone in an auditorium and a “nebulous figure” appeared and wrote the test answers on a blackboard. He said this:
“When I went to take the test the next morning, it was like The Twilight Zone,? Carson said. ?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.?
As all of you know, I’m a Christian. I do happen to believe in the power of faith and even prayer. However, I believe that God gave me the gifts to do things well, and I do NOT believe that God is down with helping a pediatric brain surgeon cheat on a final. Because that’s what it was — cheating. Angels aka “nebulous figures” don’t come out in dreams helping us cheat. An angel isn’t a chemistry tutor. Unless I missed something in church…
Note that God also told him to run for president. Then again, he also called the VA scandal a “gift from God.” Dr. Carson? STFU! Please.
I think most of us would like for doctors to actually study for their exams and use their “god given talent” to work, not to get freebies.
Hard to believe that a man of science would say this stuff? Watch for yourself in the video below.
