Pat Robertson Knocks Creationist Ken Ham for 'Making a Joke of Himself' at Debate: VIDEO


Televangelist Pat Robertson reacted to last night's debate between 'Science Guy' Bill Nye and creationist Ken Ham by attacking Ham.

Robertson doesn't "believe in evolution as nontheistic" but he begs creationist Ken Ham to "not make a joke of ourselves" with his ridiculous theory that everything on Earth has been around for a few thousand years.:

"Let’s face it, there was a bishop [Ussher] who added up the dates listed in Genesis and he came up with the world had been around for 6,000 years. There ain’t no way that’s possible. To say that it all came about in 6,000 years is just nonsense and I think it’s time we come off of that stuff and say this isn’t possible."

He added: "Let’s be real, let’s not make a joke of ourselves."

  6. "Let’s be real, let’s not make a joke of ourselves", said Pat Robertson.

    Sorry, it's too late for that, Pat, waaay too late (and in no small part thanks to you).

  7. Making a joke of themselves seems to be what Talibangelicals like Robertson and Ham do best.

  8. Oh wow, so there are facts within religion which may not equate to actual facts.

  9. Too late, bro.

  10. Is Mr. Robertson saying his Bible is wrong? The Bible is either truth or it’s a lie, you can’t have it both ways. If I can’t take the word of his god literally then I can’t literally believe in his god. If the Bible is wrong in the beginning then there’s no telling where else it’s wrong. I thought words had meaning and now Mr. Robertson is telling us that “There ain’t no way that’s possible”. I see that up is down and black is white in the Christian world.

  11. Pat, it's too late. You've already made a joke about yourself many many many times over. You're a senile old man who needs to check into Shady Palms.

  12. Holy crap. He's... being reasonable.

  13. Even poor old Pat knows Creationism is a joke.

  14. Wow! Just wow!

    Pat fu*kin Robertson calling out an idiot creationist. Bill Nye accomplished the impossible. Words I never thought I'd hear coming out of Pat's mouth ... "Let’s be real, let’s not make a joke of ourselves."

    How many 'people of faith' who have backed the 6000 year old Earth lie are pissed at Pat right now?

    Hear that Marco Rubio? Your buddy Pat just gave you an out. Now you don't have to squirm and be evasive when a reporter asks you the Earth's age.

    My suggestion. Keep after Pat. See how many more lies he's willing to debunk.

  15. Maybe Pat Robertson is a fan of The Big Bang Theory?

  16. If only irony were lethal.

  17. Just another example of how Robertson and his hoard of merry men are willing to totally ignore anything in the bible that doesn't suit their agenda du jour, and of what does, they'll hammer on it and say that the bible is THE word of god and cannot be disputed. Despite every evidence that homosexuality is part of nature (and 'creation') Pat would use his dying breath to claim that gays are choosing "that lifestyle" and should turn away from sin. Then ride a limo to Captain George's and stuff himself on the other abomination known as shellfish.

    It's an extreme version of the sorta logic republicans use.

  18. Too late, he's been a joke for a long time. BUT this is a welcomed moment of (very light) wisdom.

    Posted by: Matt27 | Feb 5, 2014 4:08:22 PM

  19. Pat Robertson knows he will die soon. He believes in hell... so he's coming around to cover his bases. Haha!

  20. Oh, that's got to sting. However, don't discount how competitive these preachers are. If they see someone moving in on their turf they're going to bounce. Ham is certainly going to be ruffling a few feathers.

    For those that don't know, Robertson is a science fiction author (oh yeah!), and wrote about a near catastrophe involving a meteor's close encounter with earth. While a rip-off of Arthur C. Clarke's Hammer of the Gods, it brought Pat in contact w/ real astronomers and since then he's changed his tune as regard the age of the earth.

  21. It's a weird day in right-wing la-la land when an idiot calls out a moron.

  22. The old fart can still make sense.

  23. Pat, YOU are the poster child for JOKE.

    Posted by: jimmy | Feb 5, 2014 4:23:23 PM

  24. robertson has continually made a joke of himself and his wild eyed beliefs and has managed to convince many to think the way he does.

  25. Pat Robertson saying you've made a joke of yourself is like Mussolini telling you you're a little violent.
