Religious Right spokesman Tony Perkins says human history goes back only 5,000 years

Why should anyone who embraces Young Earth Creationism be taken seriously on any subject?

Consider, for example, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, whose nonsense is deftly refuted here by Lawrence O’Donnell:



UPDATE: Uh-oh! The Rev. Franklin Graham, Billy’s boy, SAYS human history goes back at least 8,000 years.

Clearly, the man is a heathen!



  1. Another “Psycho”?

  2. Steverino: I was thinking the same thing.

    Whenever I hear the name Tony Perkins, I think of two things: Norman Bates, and the following verse from Bob Dylan’s “Motorpsycho Nightmare”:

    I was sleepin’ like a rat
    When I heard something jerkin’
    There stood Rita
    Lookin’ just like Tony Perkins
    She said, “Would you like to take a shower ?
    I’ll show you up to the door”
    I said, “Oh, no, no
    I’ve been through this movie before
    I knew I had to split
    But I didn’t know how
    When she said,
    “Would you like to take that shower now ?”

    Dear, dear Tony did you know the dinosaur dates back 25 thousand years and man dates back at least 35000 years with the discovery of a human figurine and the earth is 4 1/2 billion years old. Since earth is a young planet it means the Universe is really really old, over 14 billion years old, almost as old as your beliefs.

    I realize that is before your time but that does not account for your stupidity. So if man is 35000 years old how is it that the marriage between a man and a woman only dates back to 5000 years? The rest must have been living in sin.
