Ken Ham, one of the founders of the Creation Museum, attempts to refute Bill Nye’s popular video and plea to not teach your kids about creationalism at the expense of believing in evolution. Ham’s responses start to break down quickly and become more a personal attack against Nye.
“He’s (Bill Nye) not really a scientist.” Ham says, “he’s an engineer (as if he just said Nye is an artist rather than a person who has to design things that work based on proven physical laws and mathematical rules. You know, science).” And opposed to a guy who owns a museum whose exhibits consist of pure knowledge by inference. A museum that works on the assumption “wow, this stuff you see is all so great, God must have built it!”
Even if Ham was right, real science would never make such statement until it has reproducible, observable proof of that a sentient entity was involved. That’s the standard for science. Science is not just “knowledge” as Ham claims as much as it is the process to knowledge. A process Ham doesn’t want to follow while still claiming the title of being one. He, of all people, is in no position to define what a scientist is.
