When I first saw it, and before reading the OP, I thought "Pat Robertson - wtf" was probably a pretty common thread title, used by us over and over and over. But this time it applies in a different way, and it is weird. I don't think I like him being closer to the truth, even if he's just a little bit closer. He'll fuck that up too.
It is a strange thing to hear him say. I'm guessing that he'll clarify and say that the earth is closer to 20,000 years old, which would account for everything that the 6,000-10,000 year span cannot.
