When discussing Carson’s belief that there should never be a Muslim president, Attkisson asked him about his own beliefs. “What is your view on what’s happening around the globe and in the U.S., in terms of what’s in the Bible? Do you think we’re at the End of Days?” she asked.
“You could guess that we are getting closer to that,” Carson said. “You do have people who have a belief system that sees this apocalyptic phenomenon occurring, and that they’re a part of it, and who would not hesitate to use nuclear weapons if they gain [possession of] them.”
Attkisson asked Carson if he thought the apocalypse could be prevented, if it really was prophesied. “I think we have a chance to certainly do everything that we can to ameliorate the situation, to prevent — I would always be shooting for peace,” he said. “You know, I wouldn’t just take a fatalistic view of things.”
