Knudsen's History: December 27th, 2007.....

On December 27th, in the year 1831, Charles Darwin embarked on his journey aboard the HMS Beagle, where he would first formulate his theory of evolution. Franklin Pierce Robertson, great-grandfather of Pat Robertson declared in response that "I’d like to say to the good crew of the Beagle. If there is a storm in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected Him from your vessel. And don’t wonder why He hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God off your ship. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for His help because he might not be there." Robertson would go on to call for United States covert operatives to "take him out".

Franklin Pierce Robertson was born in Virginia on November 1855 and died in 1927. Are you sure he made that quote in 1831?

Sure if you say so, but wasn't it Spinosa who said, "Facts are meaningless. You can use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true." No, it wasn't. Fin.
