As soon as I step through the door the littlest jumps up for a hug. The older one is at the table with #craft supplies and the first thing she says is “Uncle Derek, can you make me something?” She calls him Rover. #nieces
Ken Ham is an idiot.
He is not a theologian.
It’s like he wasn’t even participating in the debate… like he was from a different world.
In every response he was just using God and the bible as a crutch.
Bill Nye pretty much kicked his ass.
Bill just came across more intelligent and knowledgeable. He gave great answers to the questions he was asked.
Ken continually did not answer Bill’s questions.
It’s embarrassing for those who believe in Christianity.
I agree that school text books shouldn’t take a stand on either side, instead schools should be teaching science unbiased. In fact, I agree with Bill Nye that creationism shouldn’t be taught in schools, because it’s a belief of Christianity and religion should be kept out school so that our kids can learn unbiasedly. If you believe in christianity and want your children to learn the christian teachings then teach them yourselves what you believe. I’m not saying schools should teach that evolution or the big bang is the answer to our origin of existence, I’m saying schools should teach what we’ve discovered; to learn objectively and critically. Is it wrong to consider theories that have been made in history? Even as a Christian? One’s belief in Christianity should be about salvation and God’s unconditional love, not whether the world was created in 6 days literally… I mean love is the centre of Christianity… God is love… That’s the foundation of one’s faith in Christ. So if it’s Christ whom you love then keep your faith strong… but do not parade Christianity as some privileged club; you are still human. Christ’s message was about love… There’s a chance Ken Ham is not necessarily wrong in what he believes, I have no idea nor does anyone else, however, the most troubling part is that he’s so arrogant about his personal convictions that he’s missing the mark. And there are a lot of people who think “way to go Ken! stand up for Christians!” It’s a lot like how George Bush won all those “Christian” votes… There are a lot of naive people out there who are Christians who will eat this shit up and it’s unfortunate.
It’s the same reason why religion and politics should not mix; as a nation we believe in equality. I don’t vote for a politician because of his or her religious beliefs, because if I did I would be hoping that those beliefs would somehow influence our nation. The problem with that is influence… it’s not right and it’s not fair. We believe in fairness and justice; how can we uphold that if we strain to a religion and single belief. That would be oppression.
In schools we don’t want to influence our children either way, that’s borderline brainwashing… we should be striving for kids to have the opportunity to develop without pressure and influence… there’s enough of that in the world.
It’s people like Ken Ham that make the general public assume that people who are Christian think this way, that Christians all dismiss science and are ridiculous people.
Everything Bill said had weight and truth to it… I agree with pretty much everything thing he said. No one asked Bill if he was an atheist but I assume he is.
One of Ken’s biggest complaints was that science was assuming when it came to fossil dating and snow ice dating but the only thing Ken would say is “there’s this book…” (and he kept using this joke for many of his rebuttals) of course he was referring to the Bible and said that all the answers about the age of the earth are in there… sure… but that’s just dismissive.
If he’s gonna be like that then get down from that stage. Ken Ham is just not representing himself as apart of our society, instead he’s just saying this is what I believe and everyone else should too. Do I believe in Christianity? Yes I do. Do I believe what Ken Ham does? Hell no. Do I think other people should believe in Christianity? Sure I do. Do I think people need to have it shoved down their throats? In no way, shape or from. Do I think Christianity has been hijacked by lunatics? A lot of times, yes. It’s mostly the lunatics that get noticed. Someone recently discovered that I was a Christian and said “but you’re a nice person.” There’s a misconception amongst the general public about Christians… but now a days I’m starting to think it’s not a misconception. There’s stigma on Christians in popular culture and it’s definitely not good.
Check out the debate if you haven’t seen it.
