Pat Robertson: Young Earth Creationism Isn’t True; Trust Science!

What’s that line about a stopped clock being right twice a day…?

Because Pat Robertson just said something that actually makes sense. (Kind of like that time he supported the legalization of marijuana.)

It comes in response to a woman who wants to know how to explain dinosaurs (that lived millions of years ago) to her skeptical children in a way that’s compatible with the Bible. Robertson uses it as a stepping-off point to talk about how Young Earth Creationism is a lie:

Look, I know people will probably try to lynch me when I say this, but Bishop Ussher, God bless him, wasn’t inspired by the Lord when he said it all took 6,000 years; it just didn’t!

And you go back in time, you’ve got radiocarbon dating, you’ve got all these things, and you’ve got the carcasses of dinosaurs frozen in time…

If you fight revealed science, you’re going to lose your children! And I believe in telling them the way it was.

Somewhere, the Creation Museum’s Ken Ham is trying to figure out how to tell his fundamentalist Christian followers that Pat Robertson is a joke.

At which point I’ll agree with Ken Ham.

Damn, Christians telling the truth makes my head hurt.

For what it’s worth, Right Wing Watch points out that Robertson’s company, the Christian Broadcasting Network, is still selling material promoting Young Earth Creationism.
