Bryan Fischer: To Know the Age of the Earth We Must Have 'Eyewitness Testimony' - VIDEO


American Family Association radio host spoke with Terry Mortenson from Answers In Genesis yesterday about Marco Rubio's GQ interview in which he said he couldn't possibly know the age of the Earth.

Mortenson says that "the only way we can know the age of the earth is if we have eyewitness testimony of somebody who was there, and that's what we have in the Bible"

Fischer agrees: "The only eyewitness account we could possibly have of the origin of all things would have to come from the creator himself, and fortunately he left us an eyewitness account."

  1. Am I missing something here? Does the Bible say anything about how old the Earth is? I don't think so.

  2. So these "eyewitnesses" existed when Earth was created? Were they floating in a spaceship watching the events unfold? That must have also been the exact time calendars were created.

  3. Then this a**hole shouldn't be able to take advantage of any modern medicine. No modern hospitals, no therapy, no pharmaceuticals, none of it. Anything that has a basis in biology has a basis in evolution. He can try his best to pray away any ailments he has. hopefully right wing watch covers it.

  6. The idea behind this article is excellent, and for me the first item is the real gem here: most of the people spend their entire lives only consuming what is created by others, and creating nothing themselves--or never sharing what they create, which is better than not creating at all, though not the best they could do.

  7. These people are so stupid it's almost unbelievable.

  8. This blog is very informative. i am really impressed by the comments which people have given over here. i am sure many people will get more and more knowledge from this.

  9. Ugh! Idiots.

    Whoever wrote the Bible wasn't an eyewitness either. Aside from the fact the creation myth is just that, a myth, whoever wrote it was a Bronze Age ninny who likely thought the world was flat and got their drinking water from the same place they took a dump because they didn't know any better.

    So let's not get *too* impressed with their (literally) stellar achievements. Believer or not, like Russel Brand said to those WBC tools, "The holy ghost ain't got a pen, mate." The Bible was written by men.

  10. Just as an aside, WHY do term-paper mills spam here so much? Not just this one but others. Is TR some hotbed of college students and I'm not aware of it?

  11. what century are THEY living in?

  12. Fortunately, most people with common sense don't agree with this idiot. We don't need eyewitness for conviction in court if the physical evidence is strong enough. That is called forensic science. One may even argue that it is more reliable than eyewitness accounts.

  13. In court eye witness testimony is the weakest kind of evidence. Even when someone saw what happened, they frequently get things wrong or just don't remember everything.

  14. Which Creation story in the Bible is Mr. Fischer talking about as an "eyewitness account?" Genesis 1 is the "seven days" story. Genesis 2 is the "Adam and Eve" story. There are Creation stories in Job as well. They differ in significant ways.

    None of them give any clue as to the age of the earth, although I would say all of them support the idea that none of us humans were there to see it.

    Scientific assertions about the beginning of all things would agree that no humans were there to see it.

    Another example of a fundamentalist loving the Bible without knowing what's in it.

  15. But then don't wee need eyewitness testimony on jesus ever existing?

    The gospels were written 70-90 years after said supposed person/ events without eyewitness accounts of their being written by eyewitnesses

  16. Eyewitness account!!?? WTF is he talking about, the bible isn't anything but a collection of stories if that.

  17. Oh dear. Even the basics of a working brain now escape him. He's deteriorating fast. Let's hope he'll lose his language ability, soon.

  18. @Hugo. Please let it be so.

  19. There are traditional ways of interpreting the Bible to give a date of creation in 4004BCE. Some others, both Christian and Jewish, have similar dates. To hear similar nonsense, look at TR some weeks ago on evolution. First there was Bill Nye, followed by some "scientists" responding to him. Fischer elsewhere cites a "physicist" who gives 14 reasons for a young earth:( For whatever reason Fischer loves to cite problematic "facts". Just more anti-science ranting from the Religious Right. (sigh)

  20. There are scholarly treatises that deny the existence of Jesus, suggesting that, like
    Mithra and any other divine hero, there is no proof of their existence.

  21. Who are those witnesses he is talking about?
    Moses? Studies show that those Books were not authored by Moses. Whoever wrote those garbage was bearing false witness.

  22. Stop posting stuff about Brian Fischer. Talk about a troll that people should ignore

  23. These people really think the bible just descended from Heaven on a cloud, don't they?

    Posted by: Keith | Nov 21, 2012 11:54:42 AM

  24. Heathens!

    King James and his stenographer were present at the Creation. Anything else is lies and balderdash.

  25. My world was created February 5, 1928 according to my mother who was an eye witness to the event. That is unless one’s world starts at the moment of conception. In that case it was sometime in April 1927; give or take. I would think even Ma would not be sure at what moment. So I am sticking to the February 5, 1928 unless someone has an objection
