I’m in the wrong line of work and, sadly, have a conscience thanks to my lousy parents giving me an inherent shame in lying and hyping. I’m not sure if anyone takes Pat Robertson seriously, but my fear is a lot of people do. And he clearly operates with no such moral restrictions:
HuffPo — “I wrote a book, I wrote a book. It’s called ‘The End of the Age’ and it deals with an asteroid hitting the Earth,” Robertson said on his show, “The 700 Club,” which airs on ABC Family. “I don’t see anything else that fulfills the prophetic words of Jesus Christ other than an asteroid strike. There isn’t anything that will cause the seas to roil, that will cause the skies to darken, the moon and the sun not to give their light, the nations terrified on Earth saying ‘what’s happening?'”
Robertson pointed out that Jupiter’s gravity pulls most of the bigger space rocks away from us. But one of these days… POW!
“Hey, just get ready. Get right and stay right with the Lord,” he urged in a clip posted online by The Raw Story. “It could be next week, or it could be a 1,000 years from now, but nevertheless we want to be ready at whatever time the Lord says ‘I’m wrapping it up, it’s time to come home.'”
It could be next week or a thousand years from now. That part we can all agree with. But it’s hard to see how the Bible has anything to say about asteroids, given the first one, Ceres, was discovered in 1801. That’s AD, as in After Death.
