    A day after Ken Ham, president and CEO of the creationist organization Answer in Genesis announced he would be moving forward with plans to build a life-sized replica of Noah's ark, Bill Nye, his former debate opponent, said he hopes "the Ark Encounter goes out of business." On Thursday, Ham announced in a live web stream from the Kentucky-based Creation Museum that his organization has been able to come up with funding for the project, despite its financial viability being questioned last month. AiG said in a statement that it has raised the first $73 million for its project, which...

We settled it one weekend and now it’s settled for good. At 8 min. 30 seconds in, Nye holds up a picture of Arctic and asks: ‘Would you say that the Antarctic has less ice than it used to?’Climate Depot’s Answer: NO!

    One can figure out that the "science" of climate change has fallen on hard times when its chief defenders are not actual scientists, but rather a pair of comedians, Bill Maher and Bill Nye the former "science guy," according to Politico. Of course a third comedian, albeit an amateur one, is also flogging the idea. John Kerry is comparing "climate change" to the threat of WMDs. When one considers that controversy that ensued when the coalition forces that liberated Iraq failed to find much evidence of WMDs, it was perhaps an unfortunate analogy.

    **SNIP** What we have to do is look at the information that we get from climate scientists, she said. As you said, there is not agreement around the fact of exactly what is causing this. Mr. Nye, who recently debated evolution with creationism proponent Ken Ham, said politicians like Ms. Blackburn are exacerbating Americas problems by casting doubt on scientific evidence. So what I would encourage everybody to do is back up and lets agree on the facts. Would you say that the Antarctic has less ice than it used to? he said, adding later, You are a leader. We...

    What was most instructive about Tuesday night's debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye [watch entire debate here] over the issue of origins was Nye's blanket admission of total, abject ignorance on the most important questions of the evening. Where did the atoms that made up the Big Bang come from? Nye has no idea. Where did man's consciousness come from? Nye has no idea. How can matter produce life? Nye has absolutely no idea. This surely is all one needs to know to recognize the utter bankruptcy of the theory of evolution. Now it's helpful for us who believe...

    The Conversation ^ | January 31, 2014 | Peter Ellerton
    The word pseudoscience is used to describe something that is portrayed as scientific but fails to meet scientific criteria. This misrepresentation occurs because actual science has creditability (which is to say it works), and pseudoscience attempts to ride on the back of this credibility without subjecting itself to the hard intellectual scrutiny that real science demands. A good example of pseudoscience is homoeopathy, which presents the faade of a science-based medical practice but fails to adhere to scientific methodology. Other things typically branded pseudoscience include astrology, young-Earth creationism, iridology, neuro-linguistic programming and water divining, to name but a few.

    Bill Nye may be The Science Guy, but Ken Ham is the Answers in Genesis man, and a debate between the two over the origins of life has nonbelievers and Christians wringing their hands. Nye, host of a beloved television science series, and Ham, president of a creationist apologetics ministry, will meet at the Creation Museum, where Ham is also the president, on Feb. 4. In what some wags are calling the Ham-on-Nye debate, they will weigh this question: Is creation a viable model of origins?

    So an apparently epic creation/evolution debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham took place recently. I haven't seen it yet, but it's definitely on my to do list. As a Christian who believes in God I don't reject evolution outright, but I totally reject the evolutionists dismissal of the creation/intelligent design crowd. I believe the creationist views and arguments are just as valid (if not more so) than evolution in that at least the creationist side is honest about the bottom line being that their arguments and beliefs are rooted in faith. Both sides operate on faith, but to me...
  • Evo Debate: Things Bill Nye does not know about science

    For any who might have missed the debate Tuesday evening, it may be seen on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6kgvhG3AkI What I was listening to was more of a debate on the age of the Earth than on evolution although the two topics are related. Ham is well schooled in the arguments against evolution, but he believes in a literal intgerpretation of Genesis and a roughly six thousand year old universe; that is pretty much impossible to defend. Nye, on the other hand, strikes me as a sort of a yuppie and an acolyte of Carl Sagan's who has not made any sort...

    Creation was on the medias radar again recently, thanks to the announcement that US media personality Bill Nye (best-known for his TV show Bill Nye the Science Guy) would go head-to-head in a debate with creationist Ken Ham at the Creation Museum in Kentucky. Bill Nye was actually criticized by his fellow atheists for debating a creationist. Dr Jerry Coyne, professor of ecology at the University of Chicago, says that: The response from the evolutionist side is clear: lets not give creation any exposure. he should just continue to write and talk about the issue on his own, and...

    The Ham-Nye Creation Debate: A Huge Missed Opportunity After watching Tuesday night's Ken Ham-Bill Nye debate, I was reminded of what attracted me in the first place to the approach to investigating origins represented by the theory of intelligent design. Sure, Ham talked about some science here and there, but almost all of what he said focused on trying to support a young earth viewpoint. Since he's not a scientist, the great majority of his arguments amounted -- over and over again -- to "Because the Bible says so." Nye's main argument was, "Because the evidence says so," and he...

    Science Guy Bill Nye tapped on the podium, threw up his hands and said billions and billions in a Kentucky museum that has become widely known for teaching that the Earth is only 6,000 years old. Nye was debating Creation Museum founder Ken Ham and promoting science in the snappy way that made him a pop culture staple as host of Bill Nye The Science Guy in the 1990s. The event was meant to explore the age old question, How did we get here? from the perspectives of faith and science.

    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...

Instead, Nye has defended his decision to appear at the event, which will be held at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky. and in an op-ed published on CNN.com Monday, Ham, too, reiterated his own personal quest to use the debate to give creationism a more public voice.

About 10 seconds later, she says he was conscious and asked the audience how long he was out. Nye...

    Challenging someone's patriotism is a pretty hefty charge to level in the political arena, based on the response when Barack Obama's patriotism was challenged during the 2008 election cycle. However, there seems to be a different set of rules when it comes to questioning the authenticity of the manmade global warming argument in the wake of record-setting snowfall in the Mid-Atlantic. And this different standard applied to Bill Nye "The Science Guy," who appeared on MSNBC's Feb. 10 "Rachel Maddow Show" and aired his disapproval of manmade climate change skeptics and labeled them "unpatriotic."

But don't tell that to the good people of Waco, who were "visibly angered by what some perceived as irreverence," according to the Waco Tribune.
