Pat Robertson: “You Have to be Deaf, Dumb, and Blind” to be a Young Earth Creationist

Every now and then, Pat Robertson gets it right, reaffirming that old adage about a stopped clock.

On today’s 700 Club, Robertson set a man straight after he asked a strange question about the timeline of human evolution:

… I appreciate the fact that you’re trying to grapple with it… the truth is, you have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to think that this Earth that we live in only has 6,000 years of existence. It just doesn’t. I’m sorry…

We haven’t worked all the wrinkles out, but I think to deny the clear record that’s there before us makes us looks silly… There’s no way that all this that you have here took place in 6,000 years. It just couldn’t have been done, couldn’t possibly have been done.

It’s not the first time he’s railed against Young Earth Creationism.

(via Right Wing Watch, which also points out that the website of Robertson’s own network promotes Young Earth Creationism. Maybe Robertson should look into that…)
