You Will Not Believe Why Creationist Ken Ham Thinks Bill Nye’s Show Is Inappropriate for Kids

Creationist Ken Ham says that the second season of Bill Nye Saves the World on Netflix is not appropriate for children because….. wait for it….. it teaches SCIENCE!

Creationism is the religious belief that the universe and life was made by God out of nothing, as in biblical account , as opposed to the scientific conclusion that they evolved through time. Ken Ham is an Australian Christian fundamentalist and young Earth creationist; he is also the president of Answers in Genesis (AiG)

The American TV show is currently streaming on Netflix. Ken Ham’s team says that the team doesnt teach science because it talks about antibiotic resistance in bacteria and mass extinctions. As a  biblical inerrantist, Ham believes that the Book of Genesis is historical fact.

According to staffs of the AiG

There is not much new to say, except to point out again that there is some foul, inappropriate, and suggestive language, especially in the episode on STDs and superbugs (which also makes the misleading and erroneous claim that antibiotic resistance in bacteria is an example of evolution — meaning, of course, millions-of-years, molecules-to-man evolution — in action). The episode on mass extinctions, predictably, emphasizes a naturalistic view of earth’s history, including millions of years and biological evolution.

This show is certainly not a show for children. Although some observational science is included, the bulk of the show is dedicated to entertainment and pushing a secular worldview, rather than teaching science.

 

This is not the first time Ham-Nye debate sparked. In February 2014, Ham debated Nye on the topic of whether young Earth creationism is a viable model of origins in the contemporary scientific era.

The video of the two-hour debate is available on YouTube and of the more than two-hour debate. Nye and Ham presented their views on how the Earth and its surroundings were created.
