Princess Ryans Knickers: What Creationists believe:[s3-ec.buzzfed.com image 625x441]If this is the literal word of God then I have one answer: lions
JusticeandIndependence: What better points were made by Ham?
Fano: RedPhoenix122: lennavan: Sofa King Smart:Bill Nye: who wrote the bible?Ken Ham: god.Are there any Christians that believe God wrote the Bible? I mean, the book of Matthew was written by... Matthew. That's why it's referred to as "The Gospel According to Matthew."He was only transcribing what God told him to./according to them.What's a cubit?
China White Tea: If a grown-ass adult insists Santa Claus is real, does that warrant a televised debate?
Herr Morgenstern: "This debate was painful. It was like watching an astrophysicist argue aerodynamics with a toddler as he blindly insists racing stripes make his scooccurred somewhere in the worldo faster."Ugh, copy/paste fail (cell phones are my enemy)."Scooter go faster" is what I was going for.
Chthonic Echoes: Meanwhile, Ham just recited the same tired arguments his audience has probably heard a hundred times already.
stuhayes2010: The only way to win is to stop arguing with these people.
skeevy420: ReverendJasen: Princess Ryans Knickers: What Creationists believe:[s3-ec.buzzfed.com image 625x441]If this is the literal word of God then I have one answer: lionsLions used those large, sharp canine teeth for shucking avocados back in Eden. They were well known for making a mean guac for all the pre-sin garden socials.And here I was told they used their teeth to make holes in coconuts to drink the milk.
Mad Tea Party: Did Bevets get banned? Why? I always assumed he either passed away or got bored with copypasting.
Mikey1969: Nye prepared well. On the way to the venue, he picked up a piece of limestone from the roadside, with a fossil in itJesus... They were pretty easy to find at the North Rim, but even there, I had to be climbing down the face of the cliffs most of the time, I've never been able to just pull over and grab a fossil. Very cool.
JusticeandIndependence: I drunk what: regardless of ham making better pointsWhat better points were made by Ham?
I would love to see this guy debate Creationists
I drunk what: this round goes to Nye (secular science) for being able to keep better composure, regardless of ham making better points and actually defending them (though dodging a few important items)...
I drunk what: does anyone speak IBtard, because i can't tell if this is a 'yes' or a 'no' ....?
Waldo Pepper: I fully believe sex is a wonder gift from God and no other creature on this planet gets the joy out of it the way humans are gifted with the experience.this is my last word on it for this thread. I grow tired of the circle jerk these threads become for some farkers.
I drunk what: what is nature?
I'll just leave these here:
Epicedion: Pentaxian: I would love to see this guy debate Creationists[www.astrobio.net image 492x678]Brother Guy Consolmagno SJ. Head of the Vatican's meteorite collection, one the largest in the world. And I dare Hamm to try to debate Bible theory with him.Creationist response:[www.ernestangley.org image 220x275]
CJHardin: RedPhoenix122: Epicedion: Aren't they? Aren't they?No, I blame the U.S. and U.K. as well.I blame Obama.
RedPhoenix122: Or all Canadians are responsible for Justin Bieber.
ikanreed: sprawl15: /r/atheismNow all atheists have to answer for reddit? My god, that's like pretending all Christians participated in the holocaust.
SovietCanuckistan: CJHardin: And this is one from their side.[wp.patheos.com.s3.amazonaws.com image 850x291]I did not realize tentacle porn has such a diverse audience.
Egoy3k: CJHardin: Egoy3k: CJHardin: And this is one from their side.[wp.patheos.com.s3.amazonaws.com image 850x291]Do they honestly believe that a 'naturalistic worldview' and 'worldly thinking' are bad things?Being raised Southern Baptist I can tell you that they absolutely do.Wow. If I had kids and my less than 10 year old (going by the age I guess the cartoon is representing) had a naturalistic worldview and exhibited worldly thinking I'm be damn proud of him or her.
Saiga410: sxacho: I've argued my YEC next door neighbor a bunch of times about all this while his daughters were at the table. I don't know if this is commonplace, though. He's the only one I really know.I have never had the chance to argue with a YEC. Are these agruements only locked into the age of the universe and past evolution. I am more than happy to let people believe what they want for stuff in the past but moving forward do you agree that current science theories best explain the universe as we know how it works now. Yes, OK nothing to talk about now.
BeesNuts: Let Ham spew his completely crazy shiat all over. Give him the BIGGEST platform we can, and challenge him constantly. Letting him do it in peace and private comes at a cost as well.
Epicedion: China White Tea: This. If a grown-ass adult insists Santa Claus is real, does that warrant a televised debate? No. You smile and nod and say, "That's nice, is that an hors d'oeuvres tray over there?" and wander off. You're dealing with someone who has a powerful need believe a fantasy. Their entire understanding of both the world and their own identity rely on it. You're not getting any traction there, save your breath.If a third of the population insists Santa Claus is real and starts trying to spend government money on infrastructure to support Santa, someone needs to say something.
I drunk what: so in other words the typical YEC methodology of one step forward two steps back, which the foxnews crowd eats right up

MayoSlather: Nye didn't attack the Bible enough. Ham's whole argument centered around every last word being true. All Nye had to do was point out that Christians don't even buy into all the evil shiat in there, and if they didn't believe any part wasn't true then why should they buy into every word of genesis.Plus he never hit on the idea that by Ham merely pointing out any mystery in science, it doesn't automatically lead to the conclusion that christianity is automatically correct, which Ham did over and over.
Chthonic Echoes: Nye did well. He seized the opportunity to force-feed science to a captive audience (2.5 hours of "I'm not trapped in here with you. You're trapped in here with me!") who would not otherwise have heard it. He may not have changed any minds, but he might have put some cracks in some walls.Meanwhile, Ham just recited the same tired arguments his audience has probably heard a hundred times already.
Three Crooked Squirrels: Not for nothing, but it is hard to accept the opinion that Bill Nye won the debate from a guy that helped him prep for the debate.
