Ben Carson: "You Could Guess That We're Getting Closer To" The End Of Days

"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, possessing [sic] of them."

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said Sunday that the world could be getting closer to its end.

Carson made the comment in an interview with Sharyl Attkisson, when Attkisson asked for his "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?" Attkisson asked.

"You could guess that we are getting closer to that," the retired neurosurgeon answered. "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, possessing [sic] them."

Attkisson followed up by asking if there is "a chance to change the course," in light of the fact that the End of Days "is something that's prophesied."

"I think we have a chance to certainly do everything that we can to ameliorate the situation," Carson said.

"I would always be shooting for peace," Carson concluded. "You know, I wouldn't just take a fatalistic view of things."
