Main Content

On 2/4/14 there was a much anticipated debate that took place in the auditorium of The Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY.  The debaters were Ken Ham, co-founder of Answers in Genesis and founder of The Creation Museum and Bill Nye “The Science Guy” of children’s science television show fame, who is also on the board of many scientific organizations and a contributor for many news organizations when science-related topics are being discussed.

The main question upon which the debate hinged was, “Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern scientific era?

I really enjoyed watching the debate.  Many of you did as well.  Some of you sounded off on your thoughts via social media and some of you even hosted a live-streamed viewing of the debate at your church.

I asked for your thoughts on the debate and some of you called in.  Here are those voicemails.

Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, has shared his thoughts via a blog post and his daily radio show/podcast called The Briefing.  You should definitely read and listen to those.  I’ve included the links below.
