Pat Robertson criticized for rejecting a Young Earth

Wut-woh. Pat Robertson apparently mentioned the Earth might be older than 6,000 years, the date determined by adding up all the begats in the Old Testament. That observation produced the expected counter attack on Robertson:

Famed Titanic ship wreck hunter looking for Noah’s Ark


I truly hope this is a case of confused reporting or intentional sensationalism to drive page views. ABC has an interview with Robert Ballard and PoPo links it saying he’s looking for … Noah’s Ark:

Hey Marco, how old is the earth?

Marco Rubio has a problem and it’s not that he can’t look up the age of the earth on the Internet or ask a geologist.

Hey Kentuckians, are those students a’lern’n evolushun?

I was born in Lexington, but moved to Austin decades ago as a kid with the first wave of IBM immigrants traveling from blue grass to lone stars. Austin’s great, but Kentucky to Texas is not exactly a political improvement for a budding rational atheist. Because sadly, in many ways they’re the same, including creationism:
