Juggalo Approved: Ben Carson Asks ‘Gravity, Where Did It Come From?’

GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson channels the Insane Clown Posse while denying climate change and evolution by asking: “Gravity, where did it come from?”

Earlier this week Carson was asked by a voter in New Hampshire to explain his disbelief in climate change.

The New Republic’s Rebecca Leber reports Carson was asked about climate change at a town hall at the University of New Hampshire in Durham. The questioner asked Carson:

You don’t believe in evolution or climate change, I believe. And I was just wondering, do you seriously not believe that climate change is happening?

Carson replied:

Is there climate change? Of course there’s climate change. Any point in time, temperatures are going up or temperatures are going down. Of course that’s happening. When that stops happening, that’s when we’re in big trouble.

After some applause, Carson continued:

As far as evolution is concerned, you know, I do believe in micro-evolution, or natural selection, but I believe that God gave the creatures he made the ability to adapt to their environment. Because he’s very smart and he didn’t want to start over every 50 years.

Making a bizarre answer answer even more bizarre, Carson added:

Just the way the Earth rotates on its axis, how far away it is from the sun. These are all very complex things. Gravity, where did it come from?

Gravity, where did it come from? Magnets, how do they work?
