Did you watch or hear about yesterday’s Evolution vs. Creationism Debate between Bill Nye (Science Guy) and Ken Ham (Answers in Genesis CEO)? I’m glad we’re having this open debate, but there is nothing that “ruffles my feathers” more for me than walking into a museum somewhere and seeing a definitive statement of how the earth is billions of years old. When this happens, my family will look cautiously over at me, shaking their head and thinking, “uh oh, here she goes again”.
