Watch it live.
Just clicked on! Shared on my facebook
Thus far the evolutionist has based his “superior” claim....by stating that creationism will stall US progress in Science...
thats a BIT off the wall.
Bill Nye’s position is that we somehow can’t have scientific advancements without evolution.
I predict that Bill Nye will offer an appeal to uncertainty.
An appeal to science as an authority and it’s very nature of uncertainty, to convince people that the authority of their method is certain.
Bad, bad idea.
Unless Bill Nye has set some strict preconditions, he’s likely to become a victim of the infamous “Gish Gallop” and walk away looking like a fool. Creationists are experts at snowing people and tossing out lie after lie faster than they can be rebutted. Also, Bill Nye is not a life scientist, so is probably NOT an expert on the many many ways that we use evolutionary theory in every aspect of our daily work.
I just hope Bill does his homework very thoroughly first, and watches some of those “debates” ahead of time so that he is prepared for the deluge of lies and misrepresentations he is about to receive.
Using the “telephone” argument for why the Bible is unreliable.
Battle of the Fake Scientists!
In other words...invented logic?
I saw a video of whom I think is the creationist debating here some time ago.
I looked at it just for a laugh, but I had to admit that the dude was a sharp presenter. Very rapid-fire, and would easily convince a person that didnt know better. He definitely brings his A-game to stuff like this.
Ah, the “Ham-on-Nye debate”: philosophically naive over-extension of the reach of science and of the importance of biological evolution within science versus hermeneutically naive exegesis of the Holy Scriptures! What an event!
I think I’ll pass on watching it, maybe read the low-lights sometime.
I might investigate the event just long enough to find contact information for the participants to send them both copies of Alexander Kalomiros’s “The Six Dawns”, but then again maybe I won’t.
Nye is a perfect example of 1 Corinthians 1:18-25
18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written:
I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.
20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
I didn't realize I was an expert at snowing people and tossing out lie after lie.
Yes, I'm a creationist. Don't expect to change anybody's mind about it. Just decided for myself when I believed that Christ was born of a virgin, died for my sins, and read the account of creation in Genesis and Matthew that he must be God alright. It's my choice and I see no reason to get in somebody's face about it.
Still, it's strange to be on FR and have somebody categorize me as a liar for believing in creation.
