Bill Nye (The Science Guy) hat neulich mit Ken Ham diskutiert, einem strammen Verfechter der biblischen Schöpfungsgeschichte. Erwartungsgemäß hat der eloquente Ham versucht, dem Kern der Diskussion auszuweichen, in dem er nach Belieben verschiedene Sorten „Wissenschaft“ definiert, die dann gerne auch mal die Existenz einer Gottheit nicht ausschließen:
Im Vorfeld hat man 22 Kreationisten gebeten, ihre Totschlagargumente gegen den Atheisten Bill Nye in Frageform auf Zetteln in die Kamera zu halten. Das ging dann schnell im Netz rum – und wurde von mir als Aufforderung verstanden.
Because we don’t come from monkeys – we have common ancestors. The fact that dogs evolved from wolves does not mean there are no more wolves.
There was NO exploding star involved.
Yes, it is. Beauty does not require a creator – it requires the ability to recognize a structure or an image as beautiful. If the beauty of the world were an objective property, even slugs would think „it’s amazing!“.
Yes, because it’s a believe based on the available evidence. That’s not faith.
Because „1 Lucy“ is an arbitrary definition and human corpses do not age well.
If you need a purpose – make life as pleasant for as many people as possible.
Apart from empirical evidence – very little. Yet. Working on it.
Science is not a theory. Please consult Wikipedia.
Because (as has been said millions of times) the scientific definition of „theory“ does not mean what you think it does.
Depends on what you are referring to.
There is no such thing as an „official proof“. Can I have your number?
Because we believe aliens to be real (or at least their existence to be plausible), not a supernatural force that defies all the laws of the universe.
Good for you. Not a question, though.
Yeah. Pretty awesome, right?
That presupposes there has to be a meaning and that the meaning can be objective. How about „no“ on both?
What about what now? Okay, I looked it up – not relevant to the questions raised by the creation/evolution debate.
That is dumb. And it’s „there“, not „their“.
No, because evolution on earth is powered by external power sources like the sun. Entropy requires a closed system.
Yes, that is completely illogical. Even if there were a God, why would he do that? To trick us? To trick science? Just for kicks?
Bill Nye isn’t. I’m not. Because there is no DC to be scared of.Absolutely. He is teaching children that we live in an awesome universe and that each and every individual is free from original sin and responsible for his or her actions.
