    Talk about friendly fire. Televangelist Pat Robertson is usually in the news for rants about gays or independent women, but on Wednesday night he criticized creationist Ken Ham for debating Bill Nye over evolution. “There ain’t no way that’s possible … To say that it all came about in 6,000 years is just nonsense and I think it’s time we come off of that stuff and say this isn’t possible,” he said. Robertson implored Ham, “Let’s be real, let’s not make a joke of ourselves.” Apparently the feud is not exactly new, as in 2012 Ham attacked Robertson for doubting the young-earth theory of creationists.
