Say What?

When creationists on the State Board of Education consider new science textbooks for Texas public schools next year and make their usual arguments that supporters of sound science are “secular humanists” and “atheists,” perhaps we’ll remind them of what Pat Robertson (yes, THAT Pat Robertson) said this week:

“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, you are going to lose your children, and I believe in telling them the way it was.”

Maybe Robertson should have a nice conversation with Florida Senator Marco “I’m not a scientist” Rubio, too.

    The problem remains that the SBOE is going to try to ram the YEC theory, and by that I mean guess about creation down the throats of the state and the whole nation. For as Texas goes, so goes the nation.
    We need to start to work with TFN whether we live in Texas or not to strengthen the scientific teaching in our schools. We cannot allow these Christian dominionists to take over this nation by dribs and drabs. Stop the intelligent design/creationist nonsense in its tracks and give peace a chance.

    I don’t know much about Pat. I thank God for that. (Ok, not really.) However, me thinks he may be still a creationist, not just a young earth creationist. (YECs are just marginally worse than the garden variety creationists. Though, not by much.)

    He is no ameba brain for sure! He is no “Big Banger,” guesser, with missing links, nor does he advocate rejecting Jesus Christ, as do many “so called Scientist.” In this sense he is not that scientist, but an advocate of God, as we were in Sunday School!

    The Bible has not moved, man does move, many times. Genesis 1:1 is still the greatest verse for the smallest explaination of unlimited knowledge called Creation!!

    I noticed this about Pat Robertson when researching an article a few months back. Despite his outlandish statements over the years he shows flashes of sanity.
