Creationists feel wronged since they weren’t included in a show about science.

Some of the peeps at Answers in Genesis are upset.  After being unwilling to challenge the conclusions of science through the avenue of peer review, they feel persecuted because their views are not being included in a show about the conclusions confirmed through the avenue of peer review.  This is a bit like thinking you’re [Read More...]

Sci-Am put out a list of 15 rebuttals to creationists arguments.

Personally, I’m a fan of telling creationists that if they think they have the information to overturn most of biology, they need to be telling the biologists, not me.  But this is pretty good too.  :)  Give it a look see if you want to be ready to in depth with them. [Read more...]

A parade of ignorance and confidence.

Buzzfeed asked people to write messages to Bill Nye following his debate with Ken Ham (I’m still working on a post carving through all of Ham’s BS, stay tuned).  I didn’t watch the debate initially, but I asked a friend how it went.  My friend responded “Bill Nye gave science lessons to an audience of [Read More...]

Creationism is Better than Evolution

Things are looking up in Texas.

There are a couple good stories out of Texas.  First, a Texas judge who was elected as a Republican is running for election, this time as a Democrat.  He explained his reasoning in a video: Some of the highlights include: “Rational Republican beliefs have given way to ideological character assassination.  Pragmatism and principle have been [Read More...]

Ken Ham says Bill Nye doesn’t understand science.

Ken Ham has taken another giant step towards securing himself a spot at the lack of self-awareness Olympics.  Ham just edged out porn stars accusing nuns of immodesty when he said: Australian “young Earth” creationist pastor Ken Ham said on Facebook Tuesday that Bill Nye “The Science Guy” does not “understand science correctly” because Nye [Read More...]
