It's not impossible to evolution and creation to co-exist. Consider this: when the bible says that God created the earth in 7 days, the original Hebrew word for "day" is NOT 24 hours, it literally translates to "a span of time". That very well could be the millions of years required to evolution to take it's course.

There really is no reason for science and religion to conflict.

I love how Ken avoided nearly Every question, and instead went on an intelligible rant that I could only zone out for. Not only that but he misquoted science books so much I thought I was watching Fox news. He was a hypocritical ass who claimed he did wanted to work in harmony, but took every chance he could to make modern science logic sound crazy and make the 6000 year theory seem the only possible explanation. I thought scientists had to be open minded, but Ham was so far lost in his own mind he wasn't aware there Was an outside of the box.

I don't know how Bill sat there calmly, because I certainly couldn't.

Question for Ham: "Should the bible be taken literally. So, should people who touch pig's skin be stoned to death?"

"...Well, we must define what they mean by "Literally". If you meant "Naturally"..." (continues to ignore literally and once again dodges the actual question)

Popular Bible theory:
Adam and Eve weren't people. Adam represents earth. Eve, the moon.

Things that support this theory:
1. The Bible says that god created all the creatures of the land and sea, male and female. It then goes on to mention Adam and Eve specificly and nowhere says that they were the only humans. It does however say, that Adam was alone.
2. The Bible then says that Eve was created from a piece, or the "rib" of Adam. And as most of us know, the theory of how the moon was formed, is that a large celestial body crashed into earth and blew a chunk of Earth into orbit creating the moon.
3. The "knowledge of good and evil", which was obtained by man as a result of eating an apple from the "Tree of Knowledge", may actually be symbolic for evolution itself. The Bibile states that it was Eve in this case, the moon that convinced Adam to eat the apple. Therefore, since most of marine life on earth relies on the moon to survive and possibly evolve, it can be interpreted that Eve caused life and as a result, man to "become aware" by evolving.

Another fun theory: Cain and Abel; otherwise known as Adam and Eve's first children, with extra emphasis on first, since even most Christians don't realize the bible says they had many children were actually City's (or civilizations). After killing Abel due to his own jealousy,(possibly because the city of Cain coveted Abels lands) the Bible states that Cain was driven out and "banished" from the land because of this sin. This could be referring to the Earths plates separating, making it impossible for the people of Cain to return to the old lands. It also speaks of "the mark" that cain was given, which (as racist as the bible can be) may refer to the way some culture developed different visual traits. I.E, Asians, Indians, Blacks, etc.

Yeah, Im religious. But **** me if people think I believe the earth is 5k yrs old. That's just ******* stupid

Say what you will about Ken Ham and his ideas, he nonetheless presented his argument as logically and as well as one possibly could, given that most who listen to the debate I believe would be more likely to support Bill Nye's argument. Bill Nye's job of defending and advocating for Evolution was fairly easy; Ham selling his idea was an upward hill battle, and was a tough sell from the start.    
   
MFW both men finished their arguments.   
   
 I still support Nye of course

Fun personal story of faith, since we are on the topic:   
-Be 14   
-Going to church with parents as usual   
-Be in that stage when I'm starting to question my faith in light of scientific knowledge   
-As we walk through parking lot, pose concerns to parents   
-Parents just say "Faith is a journey", etc...    
-Not terribly convinced   
-We get into the church and take our seats    
-(Before you say anything, my parents never left my sight and we hadn't talked to anyone up to this point; also the parking lot was pretty empty so nobody would have overheard the conversation.)   
-Mass begins, typical opening ceremony   
-Priest begins sermon   
-"Today I want to talk about questioning one's faith..."   
-MFW   
   
I still think Ken was being pretty damn stubborn, faith and science do not have to contradict each other.

**SILENCEnight rolled a random image posted in comment #626028 at Friendly ** To be fair Ken Ham is a pretty great debater as far as creationist advocates go. Have you seen the debate with stephen fry and christopher hitchens? That was total domination.
