Yes, I’m still on my rant about the Nye/Ham Debate the other night. lol And I won’t apologize for it. That had to be the most incredibly ignorant show I have watched in years, excluding Bill Nye’s responses, which were logical and based in fact not misconceptions of faith.
You have to admit it’s complete hubris to think we know how long a day was to God when he created the earth. God is God. He could have had a “day” be one of our hours or a week or a million years or even a billion. We don’t know, and couldn’t possibly, since we can’t really ask Him/Her.
Ken Ham actually had the temerity to say that a day for God, when he created the earth, is the same as it is now……how would he know????? He wasn’t there! And that was what he kept demanding of Bill Nye, you can’t prove the earth is billions of years old since no one was there.
Sorry, Mr. Ham, but you weren’t there either. Unless, of course, you think you’re God. Which I’m pretty damned sure you aren’t.
And to assert that the earth is only 6,000 years old is insane. There is too much proof that says this is ludicrous. I liked what Pat Robertson said about Ken Ham and his idea that the earth is only 6,000 years old…….
“Let’s face it, there was a bishop who added up the dates listed in Genesis and he came up with the world had been around for 6,000 years,” Robertson said. “There ain’t no way that’s possible. To say that it all came about in 6,000 years is just nonsense and I think it’s time we come off of that stuff and say this isn’t possible.”
“We’ve got to be realistic that the dating of Bishop Usher just doesn’t comport with anything that’s found in science, and you can’t just totally deny the geological formations that are out there.”
“Let’s be real,” Robertson scoffed, “let’s not make a joke of ourselves.”**
I can’t say I’m a fan of Pat Robertson, but this is the perfect come back for an incredibly stupid and egotistical statement by Mr. Ham.
