I wanted to provide you with a link to a short video we just produced to counter an anti-creationist video that has gone absolutely viral on internet through YouTube and other outlets. The video shows Bill Nye, well-known for his popular PBS-TV program for young people called “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” taking a shot at creationists who teach that Genesis is true. It’s one of the most-watched videos this week on the Internet. (At last report, there have been over 2.2 million views on YouTube.) It was produced by an on-line think tank called Big Think.
A recent tactic by evolutionists in their battle against creationists, one that is especially used by Richard Dawkins, is to employ an ad hominem argument—that creationists are committing a form of “child abuse” when they teach creation to children. Well, that phenomenon continues, this time with Bill Nye.
AiG was planning to rebut Nye’s views in our regular news feature that we post on Saturdays called News to Note. But dozens of people have asked us to present our reply now, such as this emailer.
Not only have all Bill Nye’s arguments he mentions in this video been refuted on your website, but he insults everyone who doesn’t believe in evolution as ignorant and as holding everyone back. … A very convenient way to deny Christ is to embrace evolution.
We are doing so today with a video rebuttal featuring our “science guys”—Dr. David Menton and Dr. Georgia Purdom of our AiG and Creation Museum staff. These two PhD scientists were asked to reply to Mr. Nye, whose academic credentials do not come close to Drs. Menton and Purdom. You can watch their three-minute video here:
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. We tell people that they do have purpose and meaning in life and that they were created for a purpose. Our Creator loves us, even while we were sinners (for we have all sinned in Adam). Christ paid the penalty for our sin and offers a free gift of salvation. No, we are not just evolved animals as Nye believes; we are all made in the image of God.
By the way, our lead article tomorrow on our main AiG website we will go more into depth about the claims of Mr. Nye. We will even show you a photo of Bill Nye standing outside the Creation Museum (he did not go inside). Meanwhile, watch the well-done video by Drs. Menton and Purdom, and then Thursday morning check our home page for Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell’s thorough refutation of a man who calls himself “The Science Guy.”
Would you please do me a favor and send our video to as many people as you can? We need to get out the word and rebut Bill Nye. Thank you.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
