Who Would Hire A Creationist, Anyways?

Bill Nye (left) and Ken Ham debate the origins of life.

One of the main purposes of Bill Nye’s appearance in the Creation Debate with Ken Ham was to make an appeal to Americans. He is uber concerned that Christian parents are filling their children’s impressionable minds with literal, six-day creation nonsense. Mr. Nye presupposes that God doesn’t exist; therefore, it should surprise no one that he would vehemently oppose any attempt at indoctrinating children with a biblical worldview concerning origins. While this line of thinking is predictable for someone who denies God,  the idea that Christian parents teaching their kids the biblical, six-day creation account in Genesis is harmful to this nation’s scientific endeavors is ridiculous on its face.

Let’s be clear. Bill Nye and his evolutionist followers are claiming that teaching kids creationism will hinder their ability to become great scientists.

So here are three questions for Mr. Nye:

  1. Do you mean to tell me that a chemist working on the propulsion systems of a rocket is hindered because he believes God created the earth in six days?
  2. Is the microbiologist who is studying the rate of infection of a bacterial strain somehow hamstrung in her work simply because she believes the Bible when it says that all humans descend from Adam and Eve?
  3. Will the work of an engineer who designs radio communications systems for first-responders be called into question on the basis of his belief that earth is approximately 6,000 years old?

Dr. Damarian’s MRI design from the US Patent & Trademark Office

I guess it never occurred to me that a belief in uniformitarianism was a prerequisite for scientific greatness. I guess no one told Dr. Damadian this when he revolutionized medicine by inventing the MRI. You see, Mr. Nye would have everyone believe that creationists could never make any significant contributions to modern science. His assertion is absurd and it is contradicted by the fact that very real and very credentialed and very successful scientists and engineers are out there doing incredible work. They are physicists, biologists, chemists, mathematicians, geologists, paleontologists, and surgeons.

And they somehow get by with their hokey religions and superstitious weapons.

  1. It is amazing that “christians” even debate on this subject. Either you take the word of God as authority and reject what the fallible world says in contrary to His word or you receive the worlds view. 1 Thessalonians 2:13 Paul is writing to the people of Thessalonica rejoicing, why? For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe. NOT AS THE WORD OF MEN BUT OF GOD. God is infallible and He has made it clear that He made creation and when you do the math with which God gave us as a gift you see that life could not have happened “billions and billions” of years ago. Sounds like an adult fairy tail, doesn’t it?

  2. Both these guys have a B.S. Neither guy is well qualified to debate the science. It was a PR event for both. And Ham adds to what the Bible says. Most Christians do not accept his YEC view. http://textsincontext.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/in-the-beginning/
    Here was a recent debate by real scientists.
