CHASING CITIZENSHIP looks at individuals whose words and actions challenged popular opinion, conventional wisdom, and political correctness in order to make America a more excellent union. The series celebrates the work of people who faced their most basic personal interests and willingly sacrificed them for the good of others. Background on the series can be found here.
In this article, Creation Scientist Ken Ham (CEO of Answers in Genesis) debates Evolution Scientist Bill Nye (The Science Guy) on the central question, “Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern, scientific era?” The debate, that drew an estimated 5 million viewers in 190 countries, took place on Feb. 04, 2015 at the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky.
The videos below could be categorized under faith, science, and a host of other topics. However, we place this in the Chasing Citizenship series, recognizing the timing of the debate in the context of a growing secularization of American society. Ham’s efforts come in a climate of various influences working to secularize America. By taking on this debate, Ham is encouraging Christians to promote a public discourse that invites faith in the same ways America witnessed the role of faith in Abolitionist Movement, Women’s Suffrage Movement, and the Civil Rights Movement.
A future article will share perspectives on specific topics, questions, and answers raised in the debate. This initial article simply encourages you, the reader, to spend time viewing some fascinating conversations.
