Message Subject The earth is NOT 6000 years old.

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.
