Sometimes You Get To See Someone Go Down Hard
Tuesday, February 4th was one of those such days and it was a magnificent sight to watch unfold live on Youtube. It was creation vs. evolution in a no holds barred steel cage match. Bill Nye came out swinging and laid down the truth with science to back it up severely beating Ham in a debate at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. Don’t want to take my word for it? You don’t have to… Take a gander for yourself at the debate below to witness the beating in all it’s brutal glory and judge for yourself. Grab yourself a cigarette or cup of coffee as it’s quite long, but perfect for those looking to kill some time at work. Oh and they got comments turned off on the video, but our comments are wide open for you to sound off in…
Bill Nye Was In Control The Entire Debate
Ham, who came across as nervous during the debate stuttered and relied on notes the entire time, and at moments looked as though he barely believed the crap spewing out of his own mouth. Nye on the other hand was very composed, speaking mostly from the heart and off the cusp. The man is very smart, and it showed as he countered Ham at every turn. Several scientists were critical of Nye for agreeing to debate the head of a Christian ministry that is dismissive of evolution before the event even happened citing how the museum will profit from this. I say fuck em. I think they are eating their words now with a side of coleslaw as the DVD’s the creation museum ends up selling will simply convince people that Ham’s idea of creationism is a fairy tale and the museum simply fodder for the story.
Bill Nye, former host of the well known “Bill Nye The Science Guy,” a 1990s science education TV program, delivered a passionate and animated defense of science and challenged the teachings on display at the museum that the earth is 6,000 years old and that man once lived alongside dinosaurs in a clear and brilliant fashion. “If we accept Mr. Ham’s point of view … that the Bible serves as a science text and he and his followers will interpret that for you, I want you to consider what that means,” Nye said. “It means that Mr. Ham’s word is to be more respected than what you can observe in nature, what you can find in your backyard in Kentucky.”
And He Takes The Bad Whoppin On His Own Turf To Boot
What makes this such a fail of epic proportions for Mr. Ham and such a victory for Nye is not only was the undressing done live on Youtube for all to see and re-see time and time again, but it happened to him right in his own backyard… In his own museum of nonsense. I think even the host, CNN’s Tom Foreman thought this was a romp judging by some of his facial expressions throughout the broadcast. Before the show, Nye was pleading with parents not to force their faulty worldviews onto their kids, and he said:
“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.”
Well I think after last night, we can safely say Bill Nye got his word across, and I think people are going to hear the truth loud and clear. Expect Attitude offers a big congrats to Bill for his performance. Great job Bill! Way to represent the scientific community. You da man!!!
