Joseph Farah of the Worldnetdaily is a young earth creationist. That’s long been known. Turns out he can’t do math either, since he thinks Bishop Ussher’s date of 4004 bc means the earth is 6028 years old (it would actually be 6017 — 4004 + 2014 – 1 for the non-existent year 0). And he has some really dumb things to say in a column about it.
Was the world created 6,028 years ago today?
That’s a question that will drive fans of Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking up the wall.
No it won’t. They’ll just laugh at you and give you the correct answer: No.
How cute. He thinks other people think he has credibility in reporting the news if not for this one thing. Adorable.
Do you believe the world is hundreds of millions or even billions of years old as evolutionists do?
Or do you believe the Earth is much younger, in line with the biblical genealogies beginning with Adam and Eve?
People get annoyed with me when I raise this issue. They say, “Farah, why don’t you stick with politics, instead of science and religion?” They say I jeopardize my credibility in reporting the news and the pressing issues of the day.
When I did a regular daily talk-radio show years ago, my producer would beg me not to go there, because, as he believed then, evolution was a matter of scientific proof, not a theory. (After listening to me talk about this topic day in and day out, he finally came around.)
Your producer was a moron. And so are you.
One thing we know for sure: Science can never prove the age of the Earth. Because science requires a methodology of observation and empirical testing that could never be done on an event that occurred thousands of years ago, millions of years ago or billions of years ago. God can, however, prove the age of the Earth because He was there. And someday, when He returns to judge His creation, He might just do that.
