Bill Nye and Ken Ham Creation/Evolution Debate


Ralar

Recommended Posts

This isn't a "debate". It's an opportunity for Ham to yap endlessly about his religion. And no, he doesn't know anything about science.

This is the first alleged debate I've ever heard in which one party is able to lecture without being challenged for half an hour. And I also enjoyed the backhanded comment from the moderator about "giving Mr. Nye respect for his views." Uh, the fundies really think Ham made his points?

and you expected different? this is what I was trying to say.

There is no point in a debate on if God created the world in six 24 hours days to bring up anti-gay marriage stuff. And he went into the plan of salvation.

That schematic is like one of the first things you view when you go into the museum. Not surprised he pulled that one out:(

No wonder Ham has only had one other public debate. The guy is honestly one of the worst debaters I have ever seen. I am not exaggerating. "God created man. Oh look, there is a squirrel!!!"

As a person who believes in both evolution and creationism Bill is schooling Ken.

I liked that at the beginning that Bill pointed out that lots of people believe in evolution and in God creating the world.

He is totally disapproving the flood with kangaroos.

Well, it IS a kangaroo court. I suppose Bill Nye just wanted to stick with the theme. :D

yes Noah's family TOTALLY could have cared for the animals on the Ark! There are awesome little models with barbies at the museum showing this with the animals in little cages;) Just like how my own barbies could fly when I played with them!

I was stupid enough to think that they actually cared what Bill Nye is trying to tell them. It's unfortunate that everything he has said so far to the Bible-thumpers will go in one ear and out the other.

One can only imagine the amount of prayer bombarding the non-fundie as he does his best to explain why they don't know what they're talking about, or what they actually believe.

Fun fact: Bill Nye worked with my uncle at Boeing for a few years. I had a beer with him just before I met my husband. I was off the hook with my family re: dating after that.

Do not count everyone out. There very well could be someone out in that audience eyes opened after this and question. This is less about changing Ham and more about exposing the audience to science and education.

So Ham's argument is basically "you weren't there so you can't know"?

Pretty much, but what does that say about his religion and believing in Christ? Ham was not there, so.....

Bill "I ask for proof, you give me verses translated by people over thousands of years. It is like playing telephone."

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
