Francis Collins: ... the New Testament as a record of eyewitnesses.Within a couple of... decades? How do you do this in print... Muahaha? LOL? Pffffft?
Bill Maher: You know they weren't eyewitnesses.
Francis: They were close to that.
Francis: Within a couple of decades of eyewitnesses.
Imagine that, for a moment. I was actually alive when the Berlin wall fell in 1989, so does that not make me an eyewitness within a couple of decades? I have actually talked to someone who went there to pick up a stone from the wall, so... my account of it surely could make it into the Next Testament, right?
I also was once at the spot of where John Lennon was shot. Exactly two decades after. So, that makes me an eyewitness twice a decade removed, or something? Take my word for it, then: Stephen King did it!
Thankfully, Francis was not all alone working on the Human Genome Project...
