Any thoughts from the YEC's about Pat Robertson saying the Earth is more than 10,000 years old?

The evidence clearly supports an Earth billions of years old and Pat Robertson has apparently decided to pay attention to the evidence. It's refreshing to see a religious figure not in denial.

Robertson is a false prophet like Joseph Smith and Mohammed.

He will say anything that will improve his ratings for his TV empire. As long as the checks keep coming in that's all that matters.

No, horse, that was Oral Roberts, a long, long time ago. And it was a prayer tower that he needed $1,000,000 to build. He told his "followers" that if he didn't get the money by a certain time "God" would take him "home". So his silly sheep did just as he asked, and he got his $1,000,000.

"they seem the same to me"

I have the feeling that just about everything seems the same to you.

Jeremy Crockett posts in his review of a Bible translation:

"This is a reliable, word-for-word translation."

Reply: Jeremy, from a "liberal," there is no such thing as a "word for word" translation. Differing languages have different words that are sometimes equivalent and sometimes not. The French word "veraison"has no English equivalent word. In English it means "berry ripening" in reference to wine. That's one of the problems with translations, the original meaning may be changed. Further, the King James version of the Bible was chosen over the Bishops' Bible by the Church of England so there are differing versions to say the least.

Get off your parochial perch and open your eyes to a wider perspective.

John A. Gerling says: Yadda-Yadda..."...and Pat Robertson has apparently decided to pay attention to the evidence. It's refreshing to see a religious figure not in denial."

Yes...and visa-versa, so what have you recently conceded to about religion John; or are you still in denial too?

No matter how old the earth is you still can't clear your conscience with science.

Sorry!

Is a YEC similiar to a YAK?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 30, 2012 7:35:21 PM PST
He sure didn't compromise much.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 30, 2012 7:35:41 PM PST
No. Yaks are respectable creatures.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 30, 2012 7:40:40 PM PST
My apologies to all yaks everywhere.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 30, 2012 8:25:05 PM PST
that is not true

there are word for word translations
but they are useless as they lose the meaning of idioms and context

The Parallel of Perpendicular says:

[As a YEC, I'd say the earth is around 10,000-18,000 years old.]

Do you really believe this ? You think the Earth did not even exist in space more than 18,000 years ago ?

What's a YEC anyway ?

G. J.,

I'm a theistic evolutionist. I'm not in denial of God or the revelations of science.

Often, creationists equate anyone that accepts the Earth is billions of years old and evolution to being an atheist. It is a mistaken assumption.

Jeff,

YEC stands for Young Earth Creationist. They generally believe the Earth is 6,000 to 10,000 years old which is in direct conflict with multiple lines of scientific evidence.

They practice this denial while using the many things science has made possible-like computers. They don't grasp the irony.
