Let’s throw an easy question out there: If you had to criticize Bill Nye over Tuesday night’s Creationism/Evolution debate, what would you say?
Almost universally, it seems, people on the science side of the debate focused their criticism on his decision to accept the invite in the first place. Very few had major problems with his presentation, with responses ranging from Great! to that-was-scientifically-valid-but-not-very-compelling.
Few people, it seemed, argued that Nye did a poor job of defending his side, and Ken Ham may even be included in that bunch.
Let’s face it: You can’t find an article (that’s not from a Creationist group) that says Ken Ham won the debate. He didn’t. He objectively didn’t. Even if you thought there was a debate to be had, that spell was broken the moment Ham said he wouldn’t change his mind about Creationism no matter the evidence.
