Creation Museum President and CEO Ken Ham recently found out what Bill Nye "The Science Guy" really thinks of him when Nye appeared on Bill Maher's "Real Time" HBO program. But it's not Nye's remarks that are bothering Ham. What Ham is even more irked by is how other Christians have been critical of him following his debate with Nye on creationism.
"What is sad to me is not what Bill Nye thinks about me. What I found really unfortunate is that after presenting my stand on God's Word, there were a number of Christians who were more complimentary of Bill Nye than of me because Bill Nye was defending evolution and billions of years," Ham wrote in a blog post Monday regarding his debate with Nye earlier this month. "You would think these Christians would be thankful that I presented the gospel at least three times during the debate. But it seems these Christian critics are more concerned about what I believe in Genesis than about people hearing the gospel."
Ham and Nye held a much-publicized debate on the viability of creationism on Feb. 4, which was watched online by an estimated 3 million people. While Nye argued in favor of evolution, Ham defended a literal interpretation of the Genesis account in the Bible and maintained that the earth is only 6,000 years old. more >>
Bill Nye "The Science Guy" revealed that following the much-publicized debate with Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham last week, a person defaced his or her own car to take a shot at him.
"Somebody out there hates me enough to actually deface their own car," Nye told CBS 58 News on Monday, showing a photo that was sent to him. The photo is of a car with its windows marked with the lettering "Bill Nye the Science Lie."
"I think that car was a caravan which has fuel injection. People use the technologies without really appreciating where it all came from. It's troubling," Nye added. more >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham fired back at "The 700 Club" host Pat Robertson who blasted Ham's young earth views, calling the controversial televangelist "misinformed and deceived."
"Sad that so many will believe him (who is neither a scientist, nor a Bible scholar) rather than open their Bibles and see that evolution and millions of years are totally incompatible with the first 11 chapters of Genesis and rather than think for themselves and check out creationist web sites like Answers in Genesis," Ham wrote on Thursday in a Facebook post.
On Wednesday, Robertson talked about the much-publicized debate that took place Tuesday night at the Creation Museum in Kentucky between Ham and evolutionist Bill Nye "The Science Guy," and accused the creationist of making a mockery of Christians with his young earth views. more >>
Young earth creationist Ken Ham and Bill Nye "The Science Guy" continued their debate on creationism and evolution on CNN's Piers Morgan, tackling the question of whether humans co-existed with dinosaurs.
"Based on the Bible, I believe that all the land animals were made on day six, and Adam and Eve were made on day six, and people try to make fun of us for believing that dinosaurs lived with people, but there are a lot of animals living today that evolution says lived with dinosaurs," Ham, president and CEO of the Creation Museum, said in response to Morgan's question.
Nye's rebuttal: "When it comes to humans living with dinosaurs, to me that's an extraordinary claim for which there is no proof at all." more >>

Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham said in a recent interview with evangelist Ray Comfort that a person's belief about the origins of mankind informs their entire worldview, and argued that evolutionists fear giving creationism exposure.
"Well, what you believe about who you are, where you came from, affects your whole worldview," Ham said in a video interview with Comfort's Living Waters ministry, as he discussed why people's thoughts on the origins of mankind matters.
The interview was a preview to Ham's upcoming debate with Bill Nye "The Science Guy." The Feb. 4 debate with Nye is set to take place at The Creation Museum in Kentucky and will tackle the question: "Is creation a viable model of origins in today's modern scientific world?" more >>
