Posted on 02/04/2014 2:11:25 PM PST by Zeneta
Bill Nye, The Science Guy, will debate Ken Ham, The Creationist Guy, tonight at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. They will debate a question from the 1920's: "Is creation a viable model of origins in todays modern scientific era?" Yes or no? This is a bad idea for everyone but the creationists.
Whatever his intention, Nye is sitting down as a representative of "evolution" against Ham, implying that there are two equal sides to a debate that has already been settled scientifically. By simply agreeing to participate, Nye is simultaneously elevating the proponents of Biblical creationism, while marginalizing his own position.
Ham is a young-Earth creationist. That means he believes the world is only seven thousand years old or so, because if you look at the Bible in the most literal way possible, that's the timeline. God literally created the world in seven, 24-hour days, and so on from there. In a post on CNN promoting the debate (CNN will moderate the event), Ham lamented that "Several hundred well-attended debates [on creationism vs. evolution] were held in the 1970s and 1980s, but they have largely dried up in recent decades." There is a reason those debates have dried up: Ham and his ilk have no factual ground to stand on.

“implying that there are two equal sides to a debate that has already been settled scientifically.”
Hmmmm. Where have I heard that before?
You don’t have to even watch. Just read “The Edge of Evolution.”. Mathematically, macro evolution is not possible. Micro evolution within distinct species, yes. The Theory of Evolution rests on one word, and one word only: Randomness. It is the major flaw.
It can hardly be called a debate. Intelligent design is irrefutable and Darwinism is unsupportable.
Sure seems familiar. If you can't win on the issues, try bluster.
Stated very well and less than 50 words. Excellent!
...and yet Darwinism is doctrinally taught in government schools as fact and the intelligent design proof of creationism is basically banned. Time for a change.
The CREATIONIST will win this debate!
Ken Ham is not defending intelligent design, Ken Ham is a Biblical Creationist
Intelligent design leaves out the definiteness of God
Ham is quite definite on the need of a Creator God and the results of Sin on the world and the need of a saviour.
For those that are interested in a few primers to the debate I would recommend these videos.

Heck modern civilization is older than that! The Sumerian civilization is over 8,000 years old.
No where in the bible does it say the earth is only seven thousand years old! The bible was not written as a science textbook! and so and so begot so and so DOES NOT HAVE TO BE LITTERAL ! example, I am a descendant of John Adams, so one “could” say... John Adams begot Texasfreeper2009, and be technically correct but have missed several hundred years in between.
Actually, you cant prove any of what you just said
it is all conjecture, based on an opinion
No, it really is
You cannot prove that mankind was alive on earth with any factual evidence past 6000 years
all you have is theory
How do you figure? Intelligent design points to God as the Creator as nothing else does. It is the definitive proof of a Creator God. The only difference is you don't need to quote scripture to show the millions of examples of intelligent design in the makeup of a person's body alone. Acceptance of intelligent design only requires common sense and a non-denial of the obvious as the Bible says in Romans 1:20.
Perhaps the Lord is not amused... there is an ICE STORM developing in that area right now. They may ALL be spending the night together in that building!
1. Abiogenesis is laughably impossible, but evolution must be true!
2. Evolution from one fish to reptile, etc., has zero evidence, but evolution must be true!
And they claim theirs is not a religious faith????
How anyone can watch this and still assert that Life spontaneously began from the “Primordial Soup” is not dealing with reality. (Yes, I realize that Drew Berry is an “Evolutionist”)
