    It's not his style. He's just a kind gentle man and that's all there is to it.

    He should, however, be calling Ham the idiot that he is. That's just a fact.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    "Specifically, we love science that doesn't potentially contradict my faith."

    Gotta love that, though: "real time science."

    Good points. I'm glad, at least, that he isn't completely polarizing science and religion: I think that is often a hurdle for science when disputing creationism.

    And I'm constantly frustrated by Bill's assertion that science can prove something (e.g. the age of the earth). While it's clear that he doesn't really believe in full proof, with the audience he's trying to reach he needs to be much clearer about what science can and can't do.

    I'd have spit on him by now, but then I'm no Bill Nye.

    Ham should be in politics. He absolutely can't answer a question directly.

    True enough, I think he should have set the same standards that Ken Ham did. Science works this way and this is what we can currently prove and can't disprove. Also, I'm kind of doubting the questions being thrown out there. A lot of them have absolutely nothing to do with the discussion.
    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

    Did Hamm just say that we're all Creationists?
