Richard,

I totally agree that it's a disgrace that a doctor could not believe in evolution. In theory, I probably would walk out as well if I learned my doctor was a YEC. But then I hear about Ben Carson, brilliant and renowned neurosurgeon who performed one of the first successful hemispherectomies and separates twins joined at the brain-- who also happens to be a young-earth creationist. Well, if I needed complex brain surgery I would go to him.

How is this compartmentalization on his part even possible?? What do we make of it?

Julie

Why would you think this is weird? Surgery is about manual skilled labor and memorization, and medical schools are known for not teaching evolution or pulling everything into a big picture, especially if he went to school 30 years ago.
