Ken Ham Challenges Bill Nye to a Debate

Bill Nye made a video advocating for evolution.

The Creation Museum made videos responding to Nye… and now Ken Ham is throwing down an imaginary gauntlet:

Ken Ham doesn’t want to hear your evidence.

… Dr. [Georgia] Purdom stated to the Christian Post, [an evolution-creation debate] “could be held at a public university, using an impartial moderator. I would think that someone as polished and charismatic as Mr. Nye would relish the opportunity to debate a creationist. In addition, since Nye will soon be hosting a new science program, I would think he would like to see the publicity generated by his participation in a major public debate.”

First of all, Nye doesn’t need the publicity. He’ll be able to go on plenty of talk shows and radio shows to promote his new program.

Second, doing this debate would be a waste of Nye’s time. These debates don’t settle the truth of evolution — the evidence does. Obviously, the Creation Museum has none of that, so they feed off of publicity. Of course Ham wants this debate. It doesn’t matter that his side will lose it. He’s just going to spin it by saying evolution and Creationism are locked in some sort of debate, period, which is why the debate was necessary. Therefore, let’s get Creationism back into the schools.

There’s no need for a debate, because there’s no credible challenge to evolution. Rest assured that all the “controversies” in the scientific world have nothing to do with Creationism.

We don’t have debates between astronomy and astrology.

We don’t have debates between chemistry and alchemy.

And we shouldn’t have debates between evolution and Creationism.

They’re not in the same realm of reality.

    Two hundred and thirty eight years ago Americans were the
    most enlightened people on the face of the earth. Today however, despite their technological advances, Americans are the most spiritually bankrupt people in the entire universe, consistent with the word of God the Bible that they so vehement deny, which states in 2 Corinthians 4:3-4, “And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age (Satan) has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of
    Christ, who is the image of God.”

    And in 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12, “The coming of the lawless
    one (antichrist) will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all
    kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil
    that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

    Can’t you people come up with a new crock of shit to spew?

    We get it; you’re butthurt that people are realizing that your god is a sadistic asshole and being a good person is in no way tied to kissing his ass. Whine about it to people who care instead of coming here and preaching to a bunch of people who don’t want to hear it.

    And while you’re at it, maybe try becoming aware that America isn’t the only country to exist. If not following your version of the bible makes someone “spiritually bankrupt,” there are a lot of countries that are worse off than we are. You know, the ones with higher standards of living, happier people, lower crime rates, higher health rates…
