On the Age of the Earth: When Pat Robertson makes sense

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.

One Response to On the Age of the Earth: When Pat Robertson makes sense

  1. Here in TN, they have taken steps though new legislation to allow creationism back into the classroom. This law turns the clock back nearly 100 years here in the seemingly unprogressive South and is simply embarrassing. There is no argument against the Theory of Evolution other than that of religious doctrine. The Monkey Law only opens the door for fanatic Christianity to creep its way back into our classrooms. You can see my visual response as a Tennessean to this absurd law on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/04/pulpit-in-classroom-biblical-agenda-in.html with some evolutionary art and a little bit of simple logic.
