We recently posted Bill Nye & Ken Ham — Together Again, describing how Bill Nye showed up a day after the grand opening of Ark Encounter and mistakenly found himself in yet another debate with Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo).
That was followed by WorldNetDaily: The Second Ham-Nye ‘Debate’, where we told you how WorldNetDaily (WND) eagerly quoted Hambo about the event, and reported that he made Nye look like a fool.
Now we have a report of the event from ol’ Hambo himself: Bill Nye and Bananas, in which he tells his drooling fans how he triumphed over Nye yet again.
This is another example of what we’ve been saying for a long time: Debating Creationists is Dumber Than Creationism, and we’re about to see, once more, how foolish it is for anyone to debate — or even appear — in the same forum with a creationist. Here are some excerpts from Hambo’s account of the event, with bold font added by us:
After his Ark tour, Bill made many public statements about his visit. He reportedly said that the Ark was “much more troubling or disturbing than I thought it would be.” NBC News reported, “Nye said the exhibit encourages visitors to trust faith over science and thereby undercuts their ability to engage in critical thinking.”
But here’s what is really disturbing and troubling. Nye wants to convince all children to believe that they are just animals who arose by natural processes — and that there’s no God! The implications of this belief on the question of the meaning and purpose of life are beyond serious!
See? Debates don’t matter. Hambo always gets the last word. Then he says:
Nye also claims that the exhibits inside the Ark encourage visitors to “trust faith over science.” Actually, our exhibits show quite conclusively that observational science in the fields of geology, genetics, and anthropology confirm biblical history concerning man, animals, and the Flood of Noah’s day.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Science is on Hambo’s side. Let’s read on:
In reality, it’s Bill Nye who has the blind faith to believe that somehow life arose by natural processes. And his evidence? That DNA, including its information and language system, arising by natural processes, came about to the fact that “we’re here.” And Nye, who claims creationists are undercutting people’s “ability to engage in critical thinking,” wants to stop all children from being able to think critically about science. Instead, we are just to accept his word and his religion that life arose by natural processes. And Nye calls this “science!”
Nye is crazed by his faith. You have Hambo’s word for it. He continues:
And then Bill Nye has the gall to speak negatively about the parents of a girl who challenged him, saying, “The parents were feeding her word for word.” You see, Bill Nye doesn’t want parents to be allowed to teach their children about God. He wants to brainwash kids, to indoctrinate them in his naturalistic (atheistic) religion of meaninglessness and hopelessness.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Nye wants to “indoctrinate” kids. Hambo would never expose kids to indoctrination!
Oh — this is where the “bananas” in Hambo’s title comes from:
Watch the following video segment, where the following conversation happened:
[Hambo’s quote from the video, with brackets (after these) supplied by Hambo:] Ken Ham [KH]: So we’re related to a banana?
Bill Nye [BN]: Yes. . . . What makes you think we’re not related to bananas?
KH: Can you testify to how information [in DNA that is the building block for life] arose by natural processes?
BN: Here we are.
Not a very memorable exchange. Here’s more:
NBC News also quoted Bill Nye as saying the following: “On the third deck [of the ark], every single science exhibit is absolutely wrong. . . . Not just misleading, but wrong.”
Once again, Hambo gets the final word:
This quote just goes to illustrate how irrational Nye can be when he makes many of his statements. Yes, Ark exhibits do have signs on them offering interpretations based on a biblical worldview, and understandably Bill Nye disagrees with them. … . Mr. Nye can disagree with our biblical worldview, but to claim “every single science exhibit is absolutely wrong” is just plain silly.
Okay, that’s enough. Never imagine that merely because reality and reason are on your side, you can ever change the mind of a creationist.
