I missed the first hour but I'm watching now.
History is full of maniacs, my friend, men and women of intelect, highly perceptive individuals, who's brilliant minds know neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils we must slay for the edification of pony-kind. Even if said edification means violating the rules of decency, society, and rightousness itself.

Bill Nye is doing great, like I thought he would. Big Props to him for going right into the lion's den of Creationists to deliver his message. If this is not a real-life example of the Plato's Cave allegory, I don't know what is.

Question me this, did Ham use any sources that didn't come out of the Bible? And I mean any sources, it doesn't have to be actual science.
That may be the single gayest thing I have ever read on this board. Or the old one. ;)

Not really, half of the answers he gave started with "Well, there's this book..." and the rest referred to the five or so "scientists" who agree with him

You certainly don't get where Ken Ham is without mental gymnastics and weasel words.

Bill Nye - Ken Ham Debate.

So did anyone end up watching it? I still think it was completely stupid for Nye to debate this guy. But one of the worst things to come out of it was this:

People holding signs that say stupid things and smiling about it

Get ready for the face palms.

We already have a thread for this, mate.  I can see how you might have missed it though, seeing as how it's on another board.

She's seriously asking how you explain sunset? Does she think it's some divine light show that a god creates for us every night? Jesus christ.

I went ahead and merged the two threads and moved it to Religion/Philosophy.

Sadly, as much as I respect Nye, I feel he didn't accomplish anything. The creationist are not going to be swayed by facts, because they care more about  dogma. I think he should follow professor Dawkins' example, as he refuses to debate creationist because it gives them the appearance of credibility.
