Ham vs. Nye Debate: Ken Ham’s Dogmatic Calvinism Put Christianity Back 6,000 Years

Over the past few days I’ve noticed that Christians won’t admit that we lost the recent Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye debate. Below I have a link to an opinion of the debate from the Christian Post. I agree with their assessment that we lost because Ken Ham argued the wrong arguments.  

My favorite debater would be Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, director of the Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture. Dr. Meyer would have been a much less dogmatic, and not a Calvinist. I believe that the event was a failure. Here’s why…
1. Because the event was hosted by Ken Ham’s theme park, it sounded like a commercial.

2. After watching him debate many times, I know that Ken Ham is a Calvinist. He can’t reconcile his beliefs with the bible or reality, because Calvinism breaks-down in many ways when tested in the real world. Ken Ham believes in Calvinism before the Bible.
3. Ken Ham emboldened Facebook Christians to become arrogant. Over the past few days I’ve commented on Facebook posts that Ken Ham did a lousy job in the debate. When I posted my comments, the Calvinists attacked me violently. They chose to use the Bible as a baseball bat against me, questioning my faith.

4. Any archaeologist with a brain can tell you that Babylon and Damascus are nearly 10,000 years old. Ken dogmatically asserts 6,000 years regardless of the facts.

5 Christian Arguments Left Out of the Ken Ham, Bill Nye Debate

92 percent say Bill Nye won in Christian Today poll
Today’s Christians often embody an end time’s spirit that wants to beat pagans to pulp with Bible verses. Modern-day Calvinists like to go-out searching for a street fight to prove that you’re a sinner, and they’re saved. These people are ugly. They seem to be getting uglier.

Revelation 6:8 about the Fourth Seal's Rhomphaia (discerning sword) separating between sheep and the sheep seems to be occurring. Please read Ezekiel 34 to add background to the Fourth Seal's opening.

  1. Could you please share more about why you believe Ken Ham to be a Calvinist? The quote below comes from the AIG website so it makes me wonder if he is or not. I'd like to hear your perspective. Thanks!

    "Jesus Christ the Creator, though totally sinless, suffered, on behalf of mankind, the penalty of mankind’s sin, which is death and separation from God. He did this to satisfy the righteous demands of the holiness and justice of God, His Father. Jesus was the perfect sacrifice; He died on a cross, but on the third day, He rose again, conquering death, so that all who truly believe in Him, repent of their sin, and trust in Him (rather than their own merit) are able to come back to God and live for eternity with their Creator."
