This blog is about the open mind. You will find many articles here exploring religious faith and you will find science. Part of accepting an open mind is to push back against extremism.
This post acts as growing summary and observation page for debate between “science guy” Bill Nye and young Earth activist Ken Ham. The debate, which was actually two pre-prepared scripts, took place in Creation Museum in Kentucky.

Ken Ham, founder of the creationist ministry Answers in Genesis;
I challenge the evolutionists to admit the belief aspects of their particular worldview.
Your assertion that there is some difference between the natural laws that I observe today and the natural laws of 4,000 years ago is extraordinary and unsettling.
The battle is really about authority. It’s about who is the authority, man or God
