What crazy thing is Pat Robertson saying this time?
Actually, he's being rather reasonable. In the days after Sen. Marco Rubio was in the news for declining to specify the Earth's age, Robertson told his viewers they should discredit creationist views that the Earth is only 6,000 years old.
"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,” Robertson said. “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."
It's a Christmas miracle! Speaking of Christmas:
“Atheists don’t like our happiness; they don’t want you to be happy; they want you to be miserable,” Robertson said in a separate segment. “They’re miserable so they want you to be miserable. So they're trying to steal your holiday away from you."
And he's back. Never change, Pat.
