Pat Robertson on the age of Earth and Dinosaurs

I am glad to see someone who is not dismissing science.  You don't have to have the full answers, but as long as you don't ignore facts, it's a step in the right direction.

In the article, it explains many Christians' views on dinosaurs and the age of the Earth:

In 1650, the Archbishop of Ireland James Ussher estimated that the Earth was created on Oct. 23, 4004 B.C. Ussher's work continues to be cited by many creationists -- including the Christian group Answers in Genesis -- as evidence that the Earth is only thousands of years old.
In fact, "many Young Earth Creationists," writes the Christian Post, believe that dinosaurs lived alongside humans 6,000 years ago, before the "great flood" described in the Book of Genesis. Some Christians, however, reportedly "dispute the existence of dinosaurs altogether, claiming that bones excavated by scientists are a ruse meant to cause confusion among believers."
