Man is he a self promotor then anything else. He really insults all Christians who don't believe how he does. Hey the bible is misunderstood when it comes to the bad parts.

I'm reading the comments on the Answers in Genesis facebook page. A few people seem to think that Ham might be able to open Nye's heart to "the truth" and see this as an evangelism tool. Seriously, how can they think Nye will just suddenly become a young earth creationist in the middle of a debate?

I think Nye is being very calm and professional, much cooler than I would be.

I would've long crossed over and tackled Ham for making my head hurt with his stupid.

Ham is going on about how there's nothing else like the Bible out here, and I feel like he must not know much about other religions because plenty of other religions have myths that explain these things too.

Back to the plan of salvation for Ham. I really think that is the only reason he did this.

Ham is two seconds away from having an altar call and having an organist softly playing "Just As I Am" in the background.

This is so true that it really made me laugh out loud.

It's one of Ham's major arguments (in general, not just this debate) that you have to believe in a literal Genesis in order to believe in the rest of the Bible/Christianity at all. I think that preoccupation is why he might be wandering off onto all these other topics that don't appear (to the rational mind) to be relevant. It's an in-house Christian argument about Biblical literalism and the relationship of the Genesis account to the rest of the Christian message really, not a science/faith argument about origins, what we can know, and how we can know it. I think Ham argues from a sort of circular moral teleology to support his position rather than from scientific or historical evidence. Something like "society is declining because gay marriage is unnatural because God made Adam and Eve so you have to believe in Adam and Eve in order to have a moral society." Etc.

I didn't actually watch the debate, though, so my opinion may not apply this time. I heard all I could take of him in my fundie teen years.

I did, at least I think I did. Bill Nye owned this debate. Ken Ham pretty much just preached a boring sermon over and over.

:lol: When he started going on about salvation, again, it brought me back to my fundie church days.

I swear, this guy cannot grasp what the debate was actually about. I will say it again, if Ken Ham is a seasoned debater, I will eat my hat. He is a rambling, incoherent hot mess.

Well if heaven is full of hams I want to be a vegetarian and avoid it.

Dude, just be like those tigers before the Fall, and you'll totally be a vegetarian:)

I kept cracking up at the looks Bill was giving Ken whenever he would start rambling on with some nonsense that wasn't even related to the question.

      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.
