The important thing to remember is who to send your money to.  And only these guys will see to it that Jesus returns it to you ten fold.  Robertson is only promising double or triple.

Exactly.  The 6000 years is a *calculation* that a bible "expert" made.  There is no such "fact" in the bible.

So by this logic, if I write a bigger book would I be more right than Ussher by virtue of the fact that I have more pages than him?  Does that make Tolstoy infallible, and therefore the Pope?

IIRC, the 6000 years refers to adding up the years in the lineage in Genesis, and adding 6 days. Ignoring the whole, 'a day is unto a thousand years' part, of course. No need to muddy the narrative with inconvenient additional information.

He continued, "Pat Robertson is claiming, then, that 6,000 years comes from Ussher's book and not the Bible. The point is, where did Ussher get his figure of 6,000 years?" Taylor believes that number comes from deep study of the dates and events named in the Bible.

No, James Ussher.  He counted up the various lengths of years given in the Bible, and appended that to Dionysus Exeguus' system, to get an approximate age of the world.  According to Ussher, it all started on October 24, 4004 BCE.

The bishop of Ireland came up with the number 6000 around the year 1500 AD; if I remember right.

He added all of the ages of everybody in the bible; plus 1500ish years, plus 6 days.

The best part? He was using the Gregorian Calendar; not the Julian Calendar. Or any of the Calendars that the Jews used. The significance being; he was wrong, even based on his own calculations.

"Of course the Bible does cover dinosaurs," said Taylor, "we have talked about that on this show several times."

No it doesn't. Stop with the "Leviathan and Behemoth were dinosaurs" bullshiat.  The bible doesn't support that at all. Leviathan was probably a flipping saltwater croc, and Behemoth could've been an Auroch.  You know, things that WERE ALIVE at the same time as mankind.

"The point is, where did Ussher get his figure of 6,000 years?" Taylor believes that number comes from deep study of the dates and events named in the Bible.

No, you're taking "...a single day to God is as a thousand years" waaaay too damn literally. That, and you probably read it IN A COMMENTARY somewhere, and take it as "divinely inspired by God"

*facepalm*

It does, actually... He added up all the 'begets' and 'begats', as well as the ages that were mentioned, and came up with his number. Of course, that ASSumes that the Bible was basically a Journal for the World up to that point, and nothing was left out. Whether the Bible is divine or not, I personally find it hard to believe that everybody who had existed up to that point were the only important people in the world, as well as hard to believe that this book made up of the incredibly old writings of a bunch of random people has the details on everybody who existed for the first few thousand years of creation.

I guess what I'd like to see them do is prove the Bible scientifically.

Which would mean he would be off by 10 days. So, it was 14 October 4004 BCE

 Also, it isn't like the Jews had calendars with weird 783-day years.  Even if leap-year-style errors were there, it would only account for a couple years over that timespan, maybe 5 on the outside (and 10 days for the Greg vs Jules).  The more important point is that the Bible was not, is not, and was never meant to be a scientific text.

Oh, you can find anything when you willfully twist any random word to mean whatever you want it to mean (plus the favorite tactic of stringing together verses from completely different parts of the Bible as if they were a single continuous chain).  Add to that killing anyone who doesn't agree with you, and it is easy as pie.
