Dr. Ben Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon and the best-selling author of six books, gave a talk about creationism vs. evolution and said the controversy over the two issues goes back a long time because it is part of “Satan’s plan” to "get rid of God,” to erase “God’s signature” from the world He created and every person in it.

“We were made in the image of God,” said Dr. Carson in his presentation at the Celebration of Creation conference, as reported by the Adventist News Network. 

“Now, this whole creation/evolution controversy has been raging on, really, since the beginning because, what is Satan’s plan? To get rid of God,” said Dr. Carson.  “To disparage God. To mischaracterize God.”

“And what is creation?” he said.  “Creation is God’s signature, that he created the world and that He created us.”

Dr. Ben Carson, 64, was educated at Yale University and the University of Michigan. He was the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and was also a professor of oncology and pediatrics.

In 2004, Carson served on the President’s Council on Bioethics and in 2008 he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 2010, Dr. Carson was elected into the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine, considered one of the most prestigious honors in medicine.

Dr. Carson, a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, is married (Lacena “Candy” Carson) and has three sons. He is a contender for the Republican nomination for president.
