Creationists hit back at Bill Nye with their own video

By Eric Marrapodi, CNN Belief Blog Co-Editor

(CNN) - Bill Nye's viral YouTube video pleading with parents not to teach their children to deny evolution has spawned an online life of its own, with prominent creationists hitting back against the popular TV host.

"Time is Nye for a Rebuttal," Ken Ham the CEO of Answers in Genesis writes on his website. Answers in Genesis is the Christian ministry behind the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky.

Nye's criticism of creationism went viral earlier this week, after being posted last Thursday.

"I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, that's completely inconsistent with the world we observe, that's fine. But don't make your kids do it," Nye says in his Big Think video, which has been viewed nearly 3 million times.

Ham writes that Nye is joining in with other evolutionists who say teaching children to deny evolution is a form of "child abuse." That idea comes in part from the atheist scientist Richard Dawkins, who in his book "The God Delusion" argues against exposing children to religion before they are old enough to fully understand it.

"At AiG and the Creation Museum, we teach children and adults the truth concerning who they are in the Creator’s eyes — and where they came from," Ham writes. "We tell people that they do have purpose and meaning in life and that they were created for a purpose. "No, we are not just evolved animals as Nye believes; we are all made in the image of God."

Ham is the public face of a group that academics call Young Earth Creationists, though they prefer to be called Biblical Creationists. They believe in a literal interpretation of the creation account in the book of Genesis found in the Bible.

The Creation Museum also produced its own rebuttal video on YouTube that features two of their staff scientists, both Ph.Ds, David Menton and Georgia Purdom.

"[Nye] might be interested to know I also teach my young daughter about evolution and I know many Christian parents who do the same," Purdom says in the video. "Children should be exposed to both ideas concerning our past."

For the past 30 years, one popular method for Creationists to advance their cause has been to make an equal-time argument,with Creationism taught alongside evolution. In the late 1980s, some state legislatures passed bills that promoted the idea of a balanced treatment of both ideas in the classroom.

In 1987, the issue made it all the way to the Supreme Court, where a Louisiana "equal-time law" was struck down. The court ruled that teaching creationism in public school class rooms was a violation of the Establishment Cause in the Constitution, which is commonly referred to as the separation of church and state.

A key point between most scientists and many creationists is the timing for the origin of the world.

Your Take: 5 reactions to Bill Nye's creationism critique

Nye's argument falls in line with the vast majority of scientists, who date the age of the earth as 4.5 billion years old and the universe as 14.5 billion years old.

"The idea of deep time of billions of years explains so much of the world around us. If you try to ignore that, your worldview becomes crazy, untenable, itself inconsistent," Nye says in his viral video.

Young Earth Creationists say the weeklong account of God creating the earth and everything in it represents six 24-hour periods (plus one day of rest) and date the age of the earth between 6,000 and 10,000 years.

"Yes we see fossils and distant stars, but the history on how they got there really depends on our worldview," Purdom says in the museum's rebuttal. "Do we start with man's ideas, who wasn't here during man's supposed billions of years of earth history or do we start with the Bible, the written revelation of the eyewitness account of the eternal God who created it all?"

Polling from Gallup has shown for the past 30 years that between 40-46% of the survey respondents believe in Creationism, that God created humans and the world in the past 10,000 years.

The most recent poll showed belief in atheistic evolution was on the rise at 16%, nearly double what it had been in previous years. The poll also found 32% of respondents believe in evolution guided by God.

    There are a lot of uneducated and foolish people here posting foolish thoughts pretending to know what they are talking about – I"m referring to the athiests and unbelievers. The reason you don't believe is because you are selfish unto yourselves and too lazy to investigate yourself if the Bible speaks the truth or not.

      It breaks my heart. I have young nephews who are very smart and very driven. They have both indicated that they are atheists (They're in their teens. They might find religion in five minutes. Who knows with kids?) I'm wondering what sort of country they will live in as adults. They're great kids. They deserve a world, and a country, where they can succeed and thrive, but that won't be the medieval United States that the fundies are trying to create.

    God bless you G. Zeus Kreiszchte! I'm not looking for any cool points in heaven though, and I'm not trying to be better than anyone else. Just hate to see so many souls condemn themselves... I will pray for you tonight. As for everyone else... be careful what you say (or type)... When its all said and done... we all have to give an account to God, for every decision we made in our lives, on Judgement Day (including things we said and posted on web-sites). Judgement Day will not be a good day for those who rejected and mocked God's son, considering Jesus took the punishment on the cross for your sins.

      What about all the countless people who lived in regions of the world that were inaccessible to the alleged "gospel" of Jeezus until much much later? For instance, Native Americans couldn't have possibly heard about it until 15 centuries later (unless you're saying you believe Joseph Smith)

    When I ask my grandmother why she believes in the bible, she always replies with 'because it's the word of god'. When I ask her why she doesn't believe in science she says 'because science is written by man'. How the hell did religion convince millions of people that the bible was written by some superhero in the sky? I mean...it's brilliant. Convincing children is one thing...but millions and millions of adults??? Give those writers the Oscar for best Screenplay. They sold the most manipulative story of all time.

      @james: unfortunately they "sold" it to everyone on pain of death. Believe or be put to death. And they did kill so many people that the ones left alive were completely frightened to speak against it. And so it went from generation to generation: do not speak against god. Humans have been brow-beaten into religion. But its over now. We're coming out of the dark. There is still a struggle as we continue to shake off the willfully ignorant, as we topple religious authority with reason. We have fact, reason, logic, and they have naught left but parlor tricks and unfortunately violence. We will overcome.

      @End Religion...that's one of the things that always bothered me, all the damn violence. They sold a story that caused people to kill each other over what was written in a book. I honestly don't know what to believe about life. Nothing seems to make sense. Science may not have all the answers yet, but you're never going to find a group of scientists starting a 'crusade', or blowing people up because they believe in 'evolution'. So we're on the right track at least.

      It's interesting, according to all statistics a small minority are atheists yet it is the atheists who reply the most on these topics. Who's proselytizing who?

    Here's a friendly challenge to atheists or anyone else who has their doubts about what Jesus did for us at the cross. Both links (at the bottom) will take you to two different videos explaining some hidden Bible codes that are pretty amazing. These are just two (of many) hidden Bible codes. After watching the first link, remember that Genesis-Deuteronomy were written by Moses, who lived roughly around 8,000 BC (8000 years before Jesus-God in the flesh-was born). If you don't know who Moses was, watch THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (Movie)-in short he was a pretty important prophet of God. The second link is pretty interesting too! After you watch them both, can you offer a scientific explanation for what you just watched?God bless you all!

      wait... so, finding hidden codes in rock albums that are played backwards is satanic, but finding codes in a fictional book is OK? Did your god provide some method for us mere mortals to know which codes are satanic and which are holy? What about codes cracked during WWII? Are those good or evil? What about crossword puzzles and other word games? holy? evil?

      and why in the world would a god use codes? he wants people to hear his word, eh? why obscure it? why is having such trouble communcating with us that he needs priests to interpret his book and codes to hide some meaning? couldn't he just get a 30 or 60 minute spot on NBC and let us all know without doubt what the truth is?

      Actually pointing a gun at someone elses head is certainly reality.

    These Creation Museum idiots just hurt themselves when they preach that "The Bible is wrong if a literal interpretation of the Bible conflicts with science."

    For the last 2000 years, Christians have been smart enough to claim that God won't allow any proof of his existence in the world, so that we have to have faith in order to believe.

    Along comes the Creation Museum, and they say, No, if the literal Bible is inconsistent with science, then the Bible is false.

    Ok then. I'm glad we have that settled.

      And what doesn't sound ridiculous to you?

      Evolution does not purport to explain the beginnings of the universe, only to trace the changes of life over time, as far back as we can trace them.

      So you are saying that your "god" was able to just magically appear out of nothing? Interesting fantasy!

      Evolution is really easy to understand.

      Have you ever seen a hot girl and thought, I want some of that?

      That's evolution.

    @Common sense. I totally agree with you. I've had a lot of abusive comments. All I have asked for is evidence. The thing I get irritated by is the pseudo-science, for example, "It's only a theory". That demonstrates a total lack of understanding of the scientific method.

      No it doesn't. Relativity is just a theory. Are you saying that it is not real just because you don't believe in it?

    The religious remind me of Anthony Quinn in the movie Requiem for a Heavyweight. A very, very sad ending.

      Please allow me to amend my statement by placing the word "religion" in place of "the religious". And by the way, if you haven't seen this film it's one of the greatest of all time, check it out.

    “It is absurd for the evolutionist to complain that it is unthinkable for an admittedly
    unthinkable God to make everything out of nothing and then pretend that it is
    more thinkable that nothing should turn itself into everything.” –G.K. Chesterton,

      Here is a better quote for all you religious tards. Follow it.

      "Don't be stupid."

      But yet you think it's perfectly acceptable that your imaginary "god" just came into existence out of nothing?

    Interesting how evolutionists turn into school yard bullies with their abusive speech toward those who disagree with them. Seems to me if they had evolved into a better species of human, they would be more respectful of their fellow man.

      It's tough to point out retardation without calling the retard a retard. Creationists are retarded.

      Common sense. It does no favor to the ignorant to avoid pointing out their ignorance.

      We now have the religious tards running scared and now are branding themselves as the "victims".

      The sole fact that your kind are doing this in droves is fantastic. Keep running – keep running scared – there is no more safe haven on earth for your delusions.

      Sorry, common sense, but you religious dolts are the instigators of hate since you're the ones claiming that those who don't believe in YOUR ways will be punished forever in "hell"!
