What a Difference a Day Makes – Young/Old Earth Creationism

The recent bust up between Ken Ham and Pat Robertson is kind of amusing to watch. You know how many of us doubted Bill Nye’s possible effect in that creationism debate? See the thing with unmoderated debates is that the audience is biased. Arguing looks fun, but it is just intellectual gymnastics. You aren’t going …

If Only Ken Ham Made These Arguments! – A Rebuttal

This one’s also from the Christian Post and was part of a request by a creationist who took umbrage to my posts on evolution. Upon insisting that these 5 Christian Arguments are solid, and that had Ken Ham pulled these out, Bill Nye would have crumbled. I was intruiged, because I came up with a …
