Fighting Science

“Look, I know that people will probably try to lynch me when I say this, but Bishop [James] Ussher wasn’t inspired by the Lord when he said that it all took 6,000 years. It just didn’t. You go back in time, you’ve got radiocarbon dating. You got all these things and you’ve got the carcasses of dinosaurs frozen in time out in the Dakotas…They’re out there. So, there was a time when these giant reptiles were on the Earth and it was before the time of the Bible. So, don’t try and cover it up and make like everything was 6,000 years. That’s not the Bible. Thats Bishop Ussher. If you fight science, you’re going to lose your children, and I believe in telling it the way it was.

  • Context: Robertson was answering a question presented by a viewer who her children and husband would not go to heaven because they question why the Bible could not explain the existence of dinosaurs. This comes as Marco Rubio declined to state whether he believed the Earth was billions, rather than thousands, of years old.
