"SNIP..........................................

Look, I know that people will probably try to lynch me when I say this, but Bishop 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.


"If you fight science," he continued, "you're going to lose your children, and I believe in telling it the way it was."

In 1650, the Archbishop of Ireland James Ussher estimated that the Earth was created on Oct. 23, 4004 B.C. Ussher's work continues to be cited by many creationists -- including the Christian group Answers in Genesis -- as evidence that the Earth is only thousands of years old.

1. Is Robertson trying to help out Jindal?

Clearing the way for the r's to be something other than the party of the anti-scientists?

5. Coming from a RWCF family, this is huge. Over the years, they have fudged on this and that

and winked and nudged and ahem-ed ... but this ... Pat Robertson ... along with not hearing God's direct communication correctly regarding the Romney loss ... trust me, this is not your mother's 700 Club.

Hallelujah !!
