[quote:UnmannedAerialPilot:MV8yMDY2NDAzXzM0NzczODc4XzUzNzIyMTM=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 20442113:MV8yMDY2NDAzXzM0NzczMzgyXzZFMkYzODIz] [quote:Anonymous Coward 28147705:MV8yMDY2NDAzXzM0NzcyMjgyX0Q3NTEzNTcx] technically, robertson did NOT say the earth wasn't 6000 years old. he said the calculations of ussher werent inspired by god. ussher calculated an EXACT date. he used several frames of reference for his scholarly work on the subject (it was the 17th century, and MANY folks of both scientific and religious bents performed such calculations). many of usshers estimates of dates for actual historical figures were pretty much spot on (because he used actual historical frames of reference that were completely unrelated to biblical text). beyond the reign of nebuchadnezer(sp?), he had to rely entirely on biblical text. robertson is rejecting the "divine inspiration" of ussher's work because of the inclusion of non-biblical frames of reference. for the record, i am NOT a christ-tard, nor a young earth creationist, nor a creationist of any ilk. i find the concept entirely laughable, and the folks who would buy into it should be committed for psychiatric evaluation in my opinion. that is what would happen if they claimed an invisible friend named "morris the giant rabbit" or "sparky the robot" had told them such outlandish horse shit. but, replace it with "my all powerful sky-daddy" and you can reject reality to the point of howling at the moon. [/quote] I've watched Pat Robertson for a second or 2 while channel surfing for something interesting, but last night I was actually watching for a minute for no reason when he said this...I Sure As Hell noticed what he said but I didn't think anything would come of it. I think his point was quite clear: it isn't in the Bible! No where does it say "the earth is 6000 years old", you have to do a complex calculation that is a made up piece of figuring, like conspiracy theorists adding up the numbers in a date and multiplying it by the years the country has existed and you get the date of D-Day or something. See The Bible Code etc etc. These numerical patterns abound naturally and within large books And you can get backing for Any crackpot idea this way. It might be because in the quantum multiverse every reality variation exists. (Although a universe that is this complex and containing such mature systems after only 6000 Is a stretch.) [/quote] Pat Robertson is a nut job. The Bible tells you, starting with Adam, how old the ancestor was when they had their children. You just go back and add up the dates, it comes to around 6,000. Do a little research instead of just blindly accepting things that you want so badly to be true. Then again, you were flipping through channels so I am guessing you don't know how to do any critical thinking of your own. The conspiracy theory is that false-teachers like Pat Robertson add huge gaps between Genesis 1.1 and 1.2 that don't exist anywhere in the Bible, trying to mesh with modern day science. [/quote]
Do the Christians of this forum have an opinion on this? Its pretty controversial to confront Christian belief of creation. What about when its done by one of your own?
