Bill Nye - Ken Ham debate


February 4 2014 stayed up for it , watched the youtube stream


In my country that was 1am - 3:30am

Bill Nye was great in what he does best , communicating science and making people curious , wanting to know more..

Ken Ham mentioned "creation science" here by ignoring that it fact he means theology and that has nothing to do with real science
Further on he called Newton Faraday and some others scientists from the past "creationists" completely ignoring that the term creationist emerged at the latest 40 years ago when this became a subject for the first time, roughly a century after these scientists died.
That shows that Ken Ham does not mind to bend the facts a little to his approval.


 I loved it when Bill Nye brought up he total failure of the "Wyoming" , one of the tallest wooden ships ever built, when he explained that the twisting of the 140 meter hull caused the ship too leak constantly and finally was the cause that it sank with all the crew..

At the moment the largest wooden ship is the dutch built Mikhail S Vorontsov of 63.5 meters only the hull took 7 years to make with a crew of 140 people and it is made by laminating the wood, a very modern way of processing wood that first was done in the 20th century

Bill Nye pointed out that Noah and his family were not craftsmen, and they weren't and then they had built a ship bigger than the Wyoming ?

Well Ken ham is building a replica of the ark isn't he ? let's see if that thing will float for even a day and will hold the amount of creatures the bible writes about without sinking ..
Now that THAT would be great proof..

However when Ken Ham asked Bill Nye to name a change in the Evolution that was not there before I was a little disappointed when Bill Nye did not mention the appearance of the lower jaw that can move sideways as well as vertical for chewing vegetables.

This only appeared in the last period of the dinosaurs..

But hey , Bill Nye still was the most convincing while Ken Ham did not bring anything new and every time fell back to the bible, the most refuted book in history

Of course American "Christians" will disagree with me , and it is their good right to do so, as long as they don't deny me the right to live in real world
