Popular Christian media personnel Pat Robertson has been known for making certain dogmatic statements on issues of Bible prophecy, the Middle East, politics, and religion.
So it really came as a surprise to me when Mr. Pat Robertson said the following:
“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,” Robertson said. “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.” (read more…)
This is really surprising when other leading conservative evangelicals make the age of the earth a test of fellowship.
This is somewhat refreshing. Why? Well, I don’t think the age of the earth is something to lose sleep over.
