    You have to remember, people who believe this have something wrong with them upstairs. Saying ridiculous things like this just proves it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I agree. Bill Nye is clearly struggling to articulate his point, drawing from a (seemingly) fairly limited pool of depth of understanding on his part. That Bill Nye is seen as a face of science, I feel like he is on the precipice of doing a disservice to the argument against creationism (analogous - though not quite the same and without such drastic repercussions - as Al Gore with climate change).

    I find it interesting that Ken Ham's argument is that creationism is the "only viable explanation," when he has provided very little evidence against scientific arguments. Granted, the debate is specifically over the viability of creationism, but Ham doesn't even support his own (more inclusive) thesis.

    Hamm already answered this. He said he can't be convinced.

    ...and we weren't there.

    Pretty much what I thought, neither seems very prepared. Neil DeGrasse Tyson/Michio Kaku are also a great voice. Bill Nye, for all of his work in bringing science to kids is not even a lightweight in the scientific world. I think the question "Is there room for God in science?" Should have been answered with "Yes. Of course, the concept of "God" provides hope for millions of people in desperate situations. It is the chain that links humanity from a moral perspective. However, there is no room for any god in the scientific process."
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    That's because there is no support for creationism, the only thing creationists can do is swat at evolution ineffectually because the think that somehow proves their side.

    They're wrong.

    Bill hasn't been as aggressive as he should have been.
