Last night I came home and almost forgot to tune into the debate between Bill Nye “the science guy” ( it’s ok if you sang that.), and Ken Ham of AIG and the Creation Museum.
I’ll have the link to the debate below and I hope you take time to watch it.
These brilliant men debated over a very crucial topic of our time. It is one that has actually been on the radar for a long time. Due to the fact that I’m very uneducated in the specifics of all they discussed, I again point you to the debate video. I also want to share a portion of an article I read by Al Mohler.
The problem with human reason is that it, along with every other aspect of our humanity, was corrupted by the fall. This is what theologians refer to as the “noetic effects of the fall.” We have not lost the ability to know all things, but we have lost the ability to know them on our own authority and power. We are completely dependent upon divine revelation for the answers to the most important questions of life. Our sin keeps us from seeing what is right before our eyes in nature. We are dependent upon the God who loves us enough to reveal himself to us—and to give us his Word.
As it turns out, the reality and authority of divine revelation, more than any other issue, was what the debate last night was all about. As the closing statements made very clear, Ken Ham understood that fact, but Bill Nye did not.
I encourage you to go and read his entire article. It sheds light on what was really the central theme and focus of the debate. That is where the battle wages. It’s a worldview issue.
I want to teach and train my children and the students God has allowed me to lead about the Christian worldview. I want to live this worldview.
You will see where the differences are between these two men in the debate. I challenge you to know the differences and know what our children and students are constantly exposed to.
