    In passages that are universally recognized as historical narrative there is a marked preponderance of preterites over the other three [verb] forms. In poetry there is a preponderance of imperfects and perfects. … Given the ratio of verbal forms, the statistical evidence for the text [of Genesis] being prose is overwhelming.

    Let’s be real, let’s not make a joke of ourselves.

    I'm feeling a bit trollish myself!


    Let’s be real, let’s not make a joke of ourselves.

    “To say that it all came about 6,000 years ago is just nonsense, and I think it’s time we come off of that stuff and say this isn’t possible,” Pat Robertson declared.

    “God’s in charge of all this. God’s in control. He is the author of all life, but we’ve got to be realistic that the dating of Biship Ussher just doesn’t comport with anything that is found in science.”

    "The 83-year-old show host again asserted that rock layers and dinosaur fossils provide proof for an old earth."

    “So, let’s be real, and let’s not make a joke of ourselves,” he continued. “I don’t believe in so-called evolution as it is currently presented as non-theistic. I believe that God started it all and He’s in charge of it. But the fact that you have the progressive evolution under His control, that doesn’t hurt my faith at all. But this thing [with young earth teachings], we just can’t be playing this.”
