Ken Ham vs Bill Nye debate over creationism vs evolution

  • Feb 4, 2014 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

On February 4th at 6:00 central time, the debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye is scheduled to start. The debate will be streamed live via the internet so we can get together and watch it. The debate will take place at Ken Ham's creation "museum" (both Ken Ham and his museum were featured on Religulous). Unfortunately, the audience will be stacked in Ham's favor but hopefully the debate will be interesting.

I will have soda and snacks for everybody but feel free to bring anything else that you like. The debate starts at 6 but I should be home by 5:30 for anybody who wants to stop by earlier.

    With regards to tonight's meeting, I would ask everyone to use please caution when deciding to attend. The snow is falling and I personally would not plan on attending if it weren't already at my house. Since it is last minute and my behavior whether or not the meeting is cancelled will not change (I will be sitting on my couch watching it either way, lol) I am not going to officially cancel. However, I would again please ask everyone to use their best judgement with making the decision to drive tonight. We will always have more meetings.

      The oldest DNA that has been found is almost a million years old. With discovery of even older DNA we can probably go back in time and some day show the common ancestor of all living things. At least that is a reasonable prediction.

      Just for the fussy purists, in my first response to Walt, the word 'share' after 'even' on line 2 from the bottom was left out. Just a typo!

    I am a practicing Buddhist that has an appreciation for all viewpoints. This debate should be interesting!

      Some day in a meeting, you can tell us all about Buddhism. At least, it does not have dogmas that are so illogical in other religions.

    I hope some one knows CPR because when Ken Ham debates I may laugh so hard I may stop breathing just saying

      That looks like an interesting read. I am only worried that Bill would get out shouted by Ken Ham. Thanks for posting the link!

      Oooh! That's great! I always get Peoria, AZ results when I look for Peoria, IL. So I assumed it was a similar mix up. Welcome to the group!

      Thanks! Apparently the mobile versions of Meetup won't let me update my location, but I'll get around to it eventually...probably. :)
