Bill Nye Debating Creation Museum Founder Tonight

February 4, 2014


In a battle that's sure to blow any UFC title fight out of the water, Bill Nye is going to debate Ken Ham, the founder of the Creation Museum tonight AT the museum at 7PM eastern (you can watch a live feed of the debate when it happens HERE). Bill Nye will be arguing creationism shouldn't be taught in schools because it's not a valid scientific theory, and Ham will be arguing a literal interpretation of the book of Genesis and that the earth is somewhere between 5,700 - 10,000 years old. Who will win? SPOILER: Nye for anybody who already believes in evolution, Ham for anybody who believes in creationism. One person might be swayed but will be back to their original belief before bed.

Thanks to chichi, who is going to spend the entire debate debating whether to bother tuning in or not. And to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil he's going to spend the whole time plotting world domination.

    Dirty atheist government pwned law makers had to put Kent Hovind in jail to keep him out of the way because he would make Nye look like the babbling catholic satanic plant that he is, so they have to dumb down the opposition to make Nye look like he actually has credentials.

    Heres a thought: If God can make everything he can change anything, then he can surely change the length of a second of time, simply by changing the effect of gravity to a greater weight. Gravity is produced by electrons spinning faster then the speed of light in every atom, [we can't see this because all we have as a measuring stick is only the speed of light] thus the high speed electrons create a vortex of time in each atom, the bigger mass of atoms the more time is being pulled into it, explaining gravity. Speed up that atom faster and it creates even more gravity also speeding up time. The flood happened as a change of gravity and time, making huge animals now too heavy to walk and die or later drown when all water molecules suddenly became too heavy to be suspended in the atmosphere. [so before the flood it had never rained as the Bible says in Genesis the earth was watered by morning mist at 1st, later a lot of the water settled into the deepest recesses of the earth]

    So what may have happened is before the flood, a second took more time to do as todays concept of a second does. Like a record if you will, being played extra slow, so that whole record of history could be 6000 years till today, [that doesn't mean that things moved in slow motion just that more stuff can happen within one second] But who knows how slow the record was being played before the flood, millions of years by todays concept of time maybe?...??? Just thinking outside the box =)

    I don't support Ham.

    I once ate a taco at Burger King. I knew how it would make me feel because of science.

    mmmmmmm ham & rye damn it that says ham vs. nye looks like i need to make an appointment with the optometrist

  • baal

    I think the goat simulation has better resolution and content.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    YEP! Watched it, and it was not a debate, it was Bill Nye teaching and Ken Ham arguing with himself basically...

  • nightvisiongoggles

    Another endless, pointless debate.

    Nobody wins, nobody loses, and everyone goes home angrier and more convinced they are right.

  • Soylent Green Is People

    If you're a 'creationist' you've already lost.

  • laserfuzz

    I wonder if they'll have any Kool-aid to drink there?

  • Soylent Green Is People

    I'm going to assume Nye wins in a walk because logic. And we all know that America is ruled by logic, right? Right?

    I really wouldn't care about creationists if they just kept it in the religion department...come on Pope Francis, you're a Jesuit I know you guys don't take it literally (cause I was in a Jesuit high school and college)

  • Keegano

    The Catholics have absolutely nothing to do with this. Catholics are not Creationists. The Creationists come from many of these "new" evangelical Christian churches. The Evangelists do not recognize the pope as a leader of their religion.

  • Jim Rich

    in other words, sinner, catholicism is as pagan as hinduism, atheism, or anything else that comes under the heading, all things satanic, such as yourself..

  • Soylent Green Is People

    I'd cut Pope Francis some slack. The guy has made a substantial amount of progress with how the modern Catholic Church interprets, and interacts with, the modern world. Just imagine how much influence one man would have to bear in order to get a juggernaut to change it's course even a single degree. Well he's got a hell of a task ahead of him because the Vatican needs to do a good 180 degrees on most topics.

  • dougfunnay

    dude apocalypse could bitch slap juggernaut a full 360 degrees
    new pope is alpha level mutant at best
    (but yeah dudes been doing an amazing job considering what there is to work with)

  • Imadethisnameup

    Smells like euphoria and fedoras in here.

    Hey stop smelling everyone's hats!

    you hit the nail on the head, fellow hokie: this is not a knowledge problem. facts are not self interpreting. people come to the table in this discussion with a bias one way or the other and are ready to answer for the "weaknesses" in either view through the lens of that bias. it usually takes a lot more than a good argument to get someone to put their faith in a new system of interpretation.

  • catallergy

    There is no "interpretation" in this debate. There is actual evidence that can be studied and examined and thought about, and then there is the other side which completely ignores it.

  • boooo!

    'Science' is just a model for the world, and not the world itself. Evolution and the big bang are models that only make sense up to a certain point (backwards) in time. So yes, there is PLENTY of interpretation in this debate.
