Among the people unimpressed with Ken Ham’s performance yesterday is televangelist, and former Republican Presidential candidate, Pat Robertson:
In a video of his appearance on the 700 Club TV program, captured by Right Wing Watch, Robertson reacted to the debate between Ham and Nye by reiterating his previously stated belief that Young Earth Creationism is false.
“There ain’t no way that’s possible,” he said, referring to the belief put forth by Bishop James Ussher that the earth is 6,000 years old.
“We have skeletons of dinosaurs that go back 65 million years,” Robertson stated. “To say it all dates back to 6,000 years is just nonsense.”
Robertson went on to say that Ussher “was just off”” with his estimation of 6,000 years for the age of the earth.
“Let’s be real,” he said. “Let’s not make a joke of ourselves.”
When you’ve lost Pat Robertson…
