Get ready for an intriguing debate between the television personality science guy, Bill Nye, and Creation Museum founder and president Ken Ham on Tuesday night.
The two have agreed to spar over whether Creation is a viable model of origin in today's modern scientific world. Will your family be watching this?
Some media reports claim this debate is a bad idea. In fact, many are criticizing Nye for “legitimatizing” creation origins as worthy of serious discussion.
Hmmmm. That seems odd to me. As if evolution is the only possible answer?
My humble opinion? This should be quite interesting. And it is definitely a discussion starter for the concerned parent who recognizes the powerful influence of evolutionary theories on modern philosophies and doctrines.
In our book Not Open: Win the Invisible Spiritual Culture War, we talk about the sixth characteristic of Barna Research’s definition of a biblical worldview:
God is the all-knowing, all-powerful creator of the world and still rules the universe today.
With only 1% of our young generation proving to have a biblical worldview, I'd suggest we best be willing to enter into some public discussion.
The debate begins at 7:00 p.m. eastern time on Tuesday. My family and I will be watching.
If you do tune in to watch via this online link, don't expect this to be without fireworks.
But I'm not afraid of honest discussion and debate... How about you? I already know who wins in the end. And He will defend Himself just fine!
