Default Bill Nye and Ken Ham to debate evolution vs. creationism 2/4/14

This should be interesting, I've signed up to watch the live feed tonight Tuesday 2/4. Seats are sold out.

Will be worth it to see the kooks on both sides, science nerds vs. bible belts!

LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!

You know this never, ever, in the history of the world, actually changes anyone's opinion right?

Yes, I know that the world is actually flat and that we used to have tails.

Just wanted to post the link if anyone is interested in watching, I stumbled across it and thought others might be. They're expecting zingers from each side so it may be entertaining if not position changing.

I watched a bit of it live. I was pretty bored and spent more attention on my cats then on the debate. The creationist guy kept saying a ton of stupid things, and would not directly debate points that Bill made.

how can a creationist actually debate facts?

that's like me saying the ratification of the constitution didn't happen because of Directive 10-289.

Ken Ham had some very compelling points:

"Because Bible."

That right there is outright PROOF of creationism. I don't even know why they are debating in the first place.

How does this rock exist if the great flood happened? Well "Because Bible". Obvi.

I think Mr. Ham needs to work on figuring out a "Scientific Explaination" to why "Because Bible".

I thought Ham was solid on the "Observational Science vs Historical Science" point, but otherwise they were both all over the place. I turned it off after 40 minutes or so when Bill Nye wouldn't shut up about Noah's Ark.

If it's not because bible, how about the "why?" question that is always asked. Asking why we are here is a stupid question. There is no obligation of the universe to have a reason why we exist. They (creationist) always act like that is a gotcha question. "Yeah, but why do we exist? Checkmate!" Why is a man made, arrogant question to ask. as if we are so important, we must be here for a reason. We couldn't possibly just exist as a collection of cells, atoms, particles, and so forth. Surely there is a reason we were put here on this perfectly designed earth...
