For those that were interested, YOM comes in late to the Rubio/Robertson party:
[M]aking sense of dinosaurs requires accepting God’s Word as written – without attempting to “blend” it with evolutionary and old-earth storytelling. This well-intentioned (but misguided) minister thinks that proclaiming a straightforward understanding of Genesis is likely to drive children from the Christian faith. Young people quickly discern the intellectual inconsistency of Christians who claim to believe the Bible yet do not take seriously its first few chapters. This obvious inconsistency actually makes them more likely to question Christianity, not less!
Interestingly, they entirely omit mention of Robertson’s name, and are so late that they don’t appear to know that Rubio has recently “clarified” his position:
The theological debate is, how do you reconcile with what science has definitively established with what you may think your faith teaches. Now for me, actually, when it comes to the age of the earth, there is no conflict.
In case you were wondering, what “science has definitively established” is to Rubio what it is to most people – that the Earth is around 4.5 billion years old.
Judging by the YOM article, I suppose that they will have to conclude that Satan has got him. Really:
Obviously this issue does matter. Although the scientific data overwhelmingly favor a young age for the earth, the enemies of the gospel do have a potent weapon in their arsenal: ridicule. No one wants to be ridiculed, and Satan is shrewd enough to use a fear of ridicule to intimidate Christians from believing – and proclaiming – this vital doctrine.
Yep, he’s done it again.
