Ken Ham referenced a man who help sequence the human genome as an atheist scientist. Funny thing about that is the Human Genome project wouldn't have been completed without the practical application of the theory of evolution.

Bill Nye has all the facts on his side, but he is in an arena where facts don't matter. That could throw his game off. Ken Han is an experienced debater and has the home field advantage. Bill is walking into this with an automatic disadvantage.

So far it seem Ken's tactic I to just wheel out a string of scientists in an attempt to legitimize creationism. I think it's important to note how many of these scientists are actually biologists.

Remember you wouldn't go to a foot doctor for a tooth ache.

Definitely. Han has that "arena" bought out and he distributed the tickets himself to those who would be supportive to his cause. So Bill Nye will pretty much have zero support, unless there are audience members incognito to throw Han off his biased game.

I know this specifically because Nemo talked to me about it Lol He might come on once he knows this thread was made.
