Nye Takes on Ham’s God


In about 5 hours (2:45PM Alaska time) a former Boeing mechanical engineer and a Bachelor in Applied Sciences, Bill Nye and Ken Ham respectively, will debate the merits of evolution and creationism live on stage at the Creation Museum. You can watch it HERE or HERE.

We don’t expect to learn anything new, but it should be a spectacle and encourage folks to have a peek. If you recall back in 1925 during a similar but ‘legal’ proceeding, the Scopes Trial, evolution was fined $100 dollars – a decision that was later overturned on a technicality.

Nye is at a disadvantage here, not only because he’s taking on God, but also because he is not an evolutionary scientist. Ham, on the other hindquarter, is the president of Answers in Genesis (AiG) and founder of the Creation Museum  So, the matching up of credentials here is like pitting a mathematician and philosopher up in a debate about the merits of kitten cuteness – obviously the philosopher will win.
