Darwinists Want to Keep Famed Neurosurgeon from Speaking at Emory University
Benjamin Carson, Sr. is probably America’s most prominent neurosurgeon. Carson, a medical doctor, works at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He has made medical history by leading a team that separated Siamese twins conjoined at the back of the head in an operation lasting 22 hours.
Dr. Carson has been awarded The Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is the highest civilian award in the United States. Among his other awards, he has 61 honorary doctorates.
He was invited to hold the commencement speech at Emory University on May 14th. However, when some faculty members and students learnt that Dr. Carson does not believe in evolution, they collected 500 signatures, protesting the choice of the famed speaker, who will also be receiving an honorary doctorate.
Letting an “unbeliever” speak to students is obviously something that Darwinists will not tolerate.
