The problem with debating someone who’s delusional (especially someone who doubts widely accepted science) is that they’re often so far gone that even when soundly defeated they don’t have the mental capacity to understand that they lost.
That pretty much sums up Ken Ham.
I assume most people reading this watched (or at least heard about) the evolution versus creationism debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham. If you haven’t, I would highly encourage you to at least check out the highlights here.
Well, it seems Ken Ham has recently continued to claim that he “won” the debate between the two. An outrageous claim to say the least considering his entire stable of “proof” essentially boiled down to him saying, “Well, there’s this book that says…” Though Ham insists that the main reason he “won” is because Nye agreed to debate him in the first place – something most scientists refused to do.
See, Ham seems to believe that because most scientists refuse to debate him, somehow that meane they’re “afraid” of him making them look foolish. But the reality is most scientists don’t want to waste their time debating people like Ham because his beliefs are so laughable that they don’t even take him seriously. In fact, Neil deGrasse Tyson has flat-out said he won’t participate in debates like Bill Nye did with Ken Ham because it’s a waste of time.
Ham went on to say, “As Bill Nye rejects God, and believes life developed by natural processes, how he can decide what is ‘bad’ or ‘good?’ By what authority can he decide this? Bill is borrowing from the Christian worldview to use such a word as ‘bad.’”
“Bill Nye wants his anti-God religion of naturalism imposed on generations of students — now that’s what’s bad for humankind!” Ham said. “Sadly, Bill Nye wants generations of kids to be told they are just animals that arose by natural processes —thus ultimately, life is without meaning or purpose.”
No, what Bill Nye wants is for generations of kids to be properly educated by proven science rather than mentally unstable delusion.
I think it’s clear Ken Ham, and those like him, are suffering from some kind of mental instability. Not only do these people seem mentally unable to grasp science, but they’ve successfully convinced themselves (without any proof whatsoever) that their beliefs are more valid than the tested and proven methods of some of the most intelligent people on the planet.
Because when you’re someone who can sit there and dismiss the endless amounts of proven scientific data disproving beliefs like the Earth being 6,000 years old, or dinosaurs and man existing on the planet at the same time, the only conclusion that I can come to for those people is that they’re mentally deranged.
And that’s exactly what I think Ken Ham is.
