House Science Member Says Earth Is 9,000 Years Old


  • 20 months ago


    Several of my Professors in scientific fields at NCSU did not believe in evolution as taught by the Atheists.  I believe the Greek Texts used for the King James Bible are true in every aspect.  The Bible was not intended to be a science book.  We have plenty of them, and they are revised quite often. God's Word is for a greater need:  Salvation through knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord.

    House Science Member Says Earth Is 9,000 Years Old

    The earth is about 9,000 years old, according to U.S. House Representative Paul Broun, who is also a physician and member of the Committee on Science, Space and Technology of the House of Representatives. “There are a lot of scientific data that I’ve found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young earth, ” Broun said in a videotape of the Sportsmen’s Banquet held on September 27 at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell, Georgia. “I don’t believe that the earth is but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them.”

    The video was uploaded to Youtube on Oct 4 by LibertyBCofHart and also appears on the Liberty Baptist Church website. I learned about it from reading a post at Talking Points Memo.

    Full disclosure: I believe in God, attend church regularly–Presbyterian Church (USA), for the record–and accept evolution, embryology and the Big Bang.

    Update (Oct. 7, 2012): Looks like Liberty Baptist Church removed the video from Youtube. Here is a clip from The Bridge Project, which originally called TPM’s attention to Broun’s remarks.
