Back in August Bill Nye had an interview with The Big Think and he explained that “Creationism is not Appropriate For Children“. Many fell in love with the video and it has almost 5 million views. Bill Nye explained, in a way that only he can, why creationism is so bad.
Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science, in all of biology. It’s like, it’s very much analogous to trying to do geology without believing in tectonic plates. You’re just not going to get the right answer. Your whole world is just going to be a mystery instead of an exciting place.
The idea of deep time, of this billions of years, explains so much of the world around us. If you try to ignore that, your world view just becomes crazy, just untenable, itself inconsistent.
And I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that’s fine, but don’t make your kids do it because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can—we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems.
…in another couple of centuries that world view… …just won’t exist. There’s no evidence for it.
Classic Ken Ham style.
Ken copies the look and feel of the Big Think video. However, he fills it with nonsensical gibberish. My favorite line is….
Bill Nye Really Doesn’t Understand Science.
Ken goes on to create his own definitions of science because, he lives in a bizarre little world where ignorance reigns supreme and the bible is the best science book ever. The video of his mental gymnastics hit Reddit Atheism and they ripped him apart.
Now Ken is saddened that the “secularists” are viciously attacking his raging stupidity. Those evil secularists are the reason that he won’t allow comments on the YouTube video. He informs us that they are so mean because, they are insecure. He explains….
The only reason they respond that way, is because the bible tells us the knowledge of god is written on their hearts.
YES! Ken that is it! You got me!
Maybe they are so upset because you dole out a string of lies that are stunting the mental development of an entire generation. History will look upon you and frown with the knowledge that you set back the world at least a generation.
Please, watch the video below and pull out some more hilarious nuggets and put them in the comments below or just tell Ken Ham why you are so insecure.
It is 3 and one half minutes of comedy gold! I could watch it over and over.
