I never had been to a debate before, and had heard that they could get messy. I'm really not comfortable watching and hearing conflicting opinions. Just ask my husband. I would just rather there not be the fights.
There was no physical fight at the debate, and no verbal mud slinging, but as I am a Christian, I have believed in my heart that Jesus died, and rose again the third day, and asked Him to be Lord of my life, I, of course, was on the side of Ken Ham and what he stood for.
It was very interesting to see each side as they gave their views and points, and obviously each side was not going to be swayed.
But...I thought Ken Ham could have had so many more evidences. There are so many out there. I know there were time restraints and it all can't be said. I am glad that he presented a clear picture of the gospel. I loved the phrase he repeated to Bill Nye..."There is a book that I would like to introduce you to." " There is a book you need to read."
I'm sad for Bill Nye. He didn't know what came before the "Big Bang" and he didn't know how conscience came into existence. Of course he didn't know the last one because he is a man that has no hope. His god is science and science does not have a conscience. Science is all he has. That is his choice, but I'm also sad for the sway that he has on many people and especially young people, who, because of his influence, will never even study the side of creation. It is poo-pooed.
I remember attending a Christian college. The classes that I took taught both sides whether it was religions, philosophies, sciences, etc. In my opinion, young people should be taught both sides and have the choice too, but they won't have a choice if they are indoctrinated into one side only.
I'm glad I know the God who made all things. I conclude all this debate stuff with saying it all comes down to what you believe and the following verses help me as I go on my way.
1 Peter 3:15- 17 "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;
having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.
For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil."
