God Bless you for this post.
Not a fan of Pat Robertson, but the title given by the OP and/or the author certainly doesn't line up with the contents. Kinda like their trying to put words into his mouth.
I see why you like "The Raw Story" site. Full of smears and focused heavily on knocking Christians. Right up your "alley".
Um, the title of the thread is entirely accurate.
I wonder how Pat squares the fact that science and modern society have allowed him to build a digital and broadcasting empire that in turn has made him fabulously weathly. I guess God doesn't have a problem with transistors, microchips, cable TV, and the internet, he just dislikes Ivy league colleges and the theory of evolution. That makes sense.
Um, no it is not. Mentioning skepticisim and secularism does not make it about learning science.
Science covers a lot of disciplines: Astronomy, Biology, chemistry, etc. They all cover the "how" of things. To take what he says about how we interpret the "how" into the "why" and into the "unknown, is, well, inaccurate.
So, is Robertson saying knowing science leads to less miracles? Clearly not. He is saying that we learn science, and use this to support a disbelief in God. therefore. He's talking attitude.
At least, that's what I get ouut of it.
