In a sense. However, what he espouses in his website I'm quite certain is what he espouses in his book.

Afraid? Don't make me laugh. What is there to be afraid of? Getting bored to death by apologetics?

I am a student of science.

well he shows how science has "confirmed" how the world, etc works according to as how scripture says it works thousands of years ago.
Ain't buying it. I've seen it attempted many times and it always falls flat on its ass.

Name one point he has proven by "science". Go for it.

I wonder if you even understand that "creationism" (i.e. young earth, flood, Genesis literally historical) is a strange Protestant cult position held by only a small percentage of the world;s Christians.

Bill Nye is fighting against a weird, irrational set of beliefs that have little to do with "real CHristianity" in the minds of most thoughtful, intelligent people.

<quoted text>Johnny, a few perfect examples of the futility of we mortals "arguing with God" one just needs togo to Isiah 45:9-13, Job Chap 38, Isiah 55:8-9, Job 42:3,6
Problem is, no-one on the planet can demonstrate that this deity of yours even exists.

That prevents the greatest futility of "arguing with God".

For in reality it's just us lot arguing with fundie rubes like yourself who pretend to be God's official mouthpiece. Seems you missed the bit about hubris.

I can't see why anyone would listen to anything Bill Nye says. According to him we know how old the earth is because of how old stars are and we know how old stars are because of how old the earth is. Haha.

I can't find a transcript of the debate so I'll have to see if I can locate a video. A direct quote would be helpful rather than your interpretation of what he supposedly said. Something I seriously question.

No you didn't. You paraphrased. But we doubt your paraphrase is accurate, so since you are the one who made a positive claim it's your job to back it up.

That is what he said. Take it up with him if you have a problem or are you scared to talk to Mr. Nye.

Here's a link to a site that has the full debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham.

YOU watch it, and report back here at what point in the video (hour/minute) he says what you suggested he said:

The video is 2 hours, 45 minutes in length. Go for it.

I *KNOW* that Bill Nye knows how old the earth is, and how old the universe is.

No, dipshit.*YOU* made the claim of what he said. But no need to back it up. We can just chalk it up to one more uneducated, fundie liar talking out his ass. We get a lot of them here so you're nothing special.

I have already watched it. Your more than welcome too if you want. I'm sure you do "THINK YOU KNOW". I'll be more than happy to believe you and Mr. Nye when you get a time machine and take me back 14 billion years ago.

Not scared at all. But if you can't back yourself up then it didn't happen, period.

I know I certainly don't recall him saying it.

But if he DID say it then you should have no problem in repeating the EXACT words he said, right?

Why would I want to back up anything Mr. Nye says and believes. You must be crazy to think I would do that. I trust him about as far as I can throw my house.

I watched it live. Bill Nye never said anything close to the nonsense that you claimed.
