In this issue . . .
A: The debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye “the Science Guy” on February 4 has evoked some strong and incredibly mixed reactions from the media, atheist bloggers, and Christians. Mr. Nye and Ken sparred in what has been described as a cordial yet spirited debate in front of a live audience that braved a winter storm. At least 13,000 groups watched a live stream in a public venue.
Many people, especially those who hold evolutionary views, expressed distaste for the debate altogether, questioning the need to discuss origins in 2014, or simply asking that everyone just agree to disagree. Some commenters on social media outlets such as Twitter were not at all friendly to the idea of discussing man’s origins, believing the issue to be settled based on evolutionary historical science.
Is there any merit to the argument that no debate is needed? Based on the evidence alone, one side is not going to convince the other side. But we need to remember that this is a spiritual battle. People need to see that only the Bible makes sense of the universe we live in and provides the ultimate proof of our origins. Furthermore, the goal of any debate should be to spark a desire to think critically about an issue and to research it further. We have seen a tremendous response from people on both sides of the creation/evolution issue. As a result of the debate, they want to know more—and that alone makes the event worth holding.
