I NEVER thought I would agree with anything that Pat Robertson of the 700 Club said. The guy is for the most part batspit crazy.
However read the following from Hufpo:
“Pat Robertson, the controversial televangelist and host of the Christian Broadcasting Network’s “700 Club,” is said to have stunned many of his viewers on Tuesday when he dispelled the idea — held dear by many Biblical creationists — that Earth is only 6,000 years old.”
“He went on to say that Christians should not “cover up” scientific evidence that shows the Earth to be much, much older.”
“Look, I know that people will probably try to lynch me when I say this, but Bishop [James] Ussher wasn’t inspired by the Lord when he said that it all took 6,000 years. It just didn’t. You go back in time, you’ve got radiocarbon dating. You got all these things and you’ve got the carcasses of dinosaurs frozen in time out in the Dakotas.”
“They’re out there. So, there was a time when these giant reptiles were on the Earth and it was before the time of the Bible. So, don’t try and cover it up and make like everything was 6,000 years. That’s not the Bible.”
