I just finished watching the debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham on evolution vs creationism. I think a revealing moment was at 2 hours and 4 minutes into the debate when the moderator asked Ham, “What if anything would ever change your mind”. Paraphrasing, Ham’s response was “I’m a Christian and as a Christian I can’t prove to you God has definitely shown me very clearly through his word that the bible is the word of God…..”. While Bill Nye responded with “We just need one piece of evidence…”.
These answers show two very distinct viewpoints of the world. Ham will hold onto his beliefs regardless of the evidence, in other words he will believe in creationism no matter what the evidence may show. While Nye forms his beliefs based on evidence.
How can you debate someone who will believe in something regardless of the evidence? I guess Nye’s motive was to show people who are more moderate how absurd Ham’s position was.
