Bill Nye, Ken Ham debate: double default

Bill Nye orating

Two nights ago (February 4, 2014), Bill Nye (“the Science Guy”) and Ken Ham, director of Answers in Genesis, held their debate. The subject should have been easy to defend. Instead, neither side scored a clear victory. In fact, by any objective standard, the outcome was a double default.

Fools no longer conscious of shame

Blake's Image of Creation should be a warning to fools who deny God

Wisdom will not long hold a seat in the head of that man who yielded up his heart to folly.

– Charles H. Spurgeon

Recently we found that a group of climate-change scientists were stranded in the ice while on a “climate change” research expedition. We know that they did not want the American people to catch on to their folly; regardless, it was brought to the light for all to see and hear.

We are all Little Sisters

Remember Martin Niemöller during the Little Sisters of the Poor case.

The Department of Justice is doing its best to strong-arm a group of service-minded nuns to comply with Obamacare rules and regulations that conflict with their faith. The Little Sisters of the Poor have refused either of the options available to them in Obamacare that could make this problem go away. They include dropping their group health insurance and paying the Obamacare taxes or applying for the “accommodation” that exempts them for religious reasons. The options seem simple enough, but the consequences have not eluded the Little Sisters.

Bill Nye, Ken Ham debate – sellout crowd

How old is this planet? Creation gives one answer, evolution another.

The great debate between Bill Nye (“The Science Guy”) and Ken Ham, head of Answers in Genesis, will play literally to a sellout crowd.

Bill Nye, Ken Ham to debate creation

Does Bill Nye hold to this?

Most people know Bill Nye as “The Science Guy,” from his children’s science show that ran from 1993 to 1998. Today, Ken Ham, of Answers in Genesis, said he would debate Bill Nye on creation v. evolution. That debate will take place February 4, 2014, at The Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky.

Perverted justice

The gavel: a symbol of justice and punishment for corrupt officials.

Portia, a Shakespearean character in the Merchant of Venice, once said, “The quality of mercy is not strained…” Portia was a fictitious character that lived in the mind of Shakespeare. The rest of us have to live in the real world where mercy and compassion beyond reason is an obsession imposed upon us to the perversion of justice. In modern day America the quality of mercy is not only strained; it is also perverted. And this perversion interacts and wreaks havoc on the principles of justice that demand fairness and equal treatment for one and all.

Human evolution attitude survey results

Does Bill Nye hold to this?

At the end of the year, the Pew Research Center published another survey on public attitudes about human evolution. Pew last took this survey in 2009. Pew finds attitudes seemingly little different today from four years ago. But in one key respect, attitudes are changing. Namely: those who stick to evolution on one hand, and creation on the other, now sort themselves as conservatives and liberals, respectively.

At war with God

Remedies for a culture run amuck

 

Your God of Leviticus (and of the whole Bible) is clearly a sinful homophobic bigot. He should repent of his sinful homophobia…

-The Late Radical homosexual activist Frank Kameny

Over the past couple of weeks, we have seen “Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson under incessant attack by the radical homosexuals in America for simply quoting the Bible. The reason for their incessant attacks: the radical homosexuals have lost control over their talking points, as well as the dialogue that is used to push their ungodly and unlawful lifestyle choices through the state-run media.

ASA – Academics Surrender to Allah

Members of the Israel Defense Forces on the Golan Heights. These are the real men of ideals in the Middle Ease.

Five thousand members of the ASA, American Studies Association, would be better identified as Academics Surrender to Allah.  They have declared jihad against the State of Israel.  Why?  ASA president Curtis Marez admitted that there are worse countries than Israel but, he added, “One has to start somewhere!” Can you picture Marez as part of a firefighting team sent to extinguish a blaze in Southern California, and he’ll start “somewhere” in North Dakota?  So they’re boycotting Israel’s universities, which are also attended by Palestinian students, rather than boycotting Palestinian universities that were instituted by Israel but are prohibited to Jewish students – perhaps a study in reverse psychology.

Christ – Lord of time and all creation

Jesus Christ rebuked a hypocrite above all things.

Images of the Christ child lying in a manger warm our hearts and comfort our souls during this very special time of the year.  The songs we sing remind us of angels and shining bright stars adorning the humble surroundings of that very first Christmas over 2000 years ago.  And at Easter we think of the suffering Christ and the price He paid for our salvation.
