Pat Robertson is an old earther? - November 29th, 2012, 10:39 AM

Either he's changed his position, or I never knew, but Pat Robertson joins the likes of James Dobson in saying that the earth is old, not young.

This crazy, cruel piece of work's nuttier than usual lately. Didn't he also just come out in support of legalizing weed?





If you don't do as He told you don't expect me to listen.




Chances are you're actually a Paulist.

I never thought much of Pat Robertson. If he supports legalizing pot--maybe he's going senile. That's even a stretch for him.

You know what, I think he did. He also did a video with Al Sharpton a few years back about global warming.

Pat Robertson is an old earther?

So is God





Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don't learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying "yes" begins things. Saying "yes" is how things grow. Saying "yes" leads to knowledge. "Yes" is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say "yes."

It looks like he is confused, like a lot of Christians are as to what is science and what is philosophy. If it doesn’t support the Biblical account of creation, then it isn’t science, it is philosophy.

Faith, by definition, deals only with things that are not seen (2 Cor 4:18, Heb 11:1) while science, by definition, deals only with what we can see or observe with physical instruments. If faith could be proven by science, faith would no longer be faith--it would be knowledge (Rom 8:24). Then, rather than being saved by our faith, we could be saved by our knowledge. Faith is not knowledge, and knowledge is not faith. Science is knowledge. 2 Corinthians 5:7 says that "we walk by faith, not by sight". Science and faith appear to be mutually exclusive.

Skepticism and humility are essential tools in the process of true scientific investigation. Personal bias must be set aside because bias can alter one's perceptions. True scientists must not only be prepared to doubt, question, and test the claims of others, but they must doubt, question, and test their own assumptions as well, and be prepared to accept outcomes that do not conform to their predisposed expectations.

These essential traits of the true scientific investigator, skepticism and humility, are non-existent in the mindset of the fundamentalist. Fundamentalism replaces skepticism and humility with faith and arrogance. Fundamentalists appeal to authority (scripture) in order to define their beliefs about creationism. The scientific method gets replaced with "God said it, I believe it, and that settles it!" Outcomes of scientific testing that do not conform to the fundamentalist's belief system tend to be simply ignored or denied. This is why creationism leads to poor science.

You have that exactly backwards.

Define "science"

Science is anything that supports the philosophy of atheistic naturalism.
