Peterburg, Ky- Bill Nye ( the science Guy) debated creationist Ken Ham recently on whether the earth is only 6,000 years old and if evolution is an abomination. Hams’ creationist museum includes representations of people riding Dinosaurs as well as mis-representations of anything remotely reasonable. A fund raiser for a new wing (intellegently designed, of course) for his “museum” found him and Mr. Nye sharing the stage in a debate.
“Creation is the only viable model of historical science confirmed by observational science in today’s modern scientific era” – Just WTF that means is anyone’s guess.
Ham further states that the Bible says life begins at fertilization, but unfortunately, it does not. There’s lots of flowery prose about the sanctity of life, but 2000 years ago the actual process was not well understood. Just like the great flood creating the Grand Canyon, Mr. Ham is just pulling things out of his @ss and attributing them to God.
Bill Nye, on the other hand, showed great restraint and acted like a gentleman throughout. While many felt he should have just crossed the stage, and throttled Ham while screaming “Thou shalt not suffer a Fool to live!” But he didn’t. He merely pointed out that Ham has created a scientific justification for his beliefs by re defining what science means.
So what did we learn? That Bill Nye should now be called “The NICE Science Guy” . As for Ham, his fifteen minutes are up.
