Last week we witnessed the “debate” between Bill Nye and Ken Ham, over whether creationism is a valid model for understanding our world. (No, it is not.)
A pastor affiliated with the American Family Association has accused religious broadcaster Pat Robertson of “blasphemy” for mocking creationism.
Robertson responded to last week’s debate between Bill Nye, “the Science Guy,” and Creation Museum founder Ken Ham by flatly denouncing the idea that the Earth was only 6,000 years old.
“Let’s be real,” Robertson said on his “700 Club” program. “Let’s not make a joke of ourselves.”
Rev. Mark H. Creech, executive director of the Christian Action League, argued God established all scientific laws, so “good science will always point to Him.”
Mr. Creech is wrong. He has asserted, without evidence, that his god established all scientific laws. Where does he get this notion? As with all presuppositionalists, Creech sets out to announce what God has done, yet there is no evidence that a God exists at all.
It is logically impossible to attribute acts to a being that has not even been proven to exist. First, establish that God exists, and THEN assign whatever attributes make sense.
This is a common failure among presuppositionalists — they assume their god actually exists and base all their arguments on that presupposition, and feel no need to bring forth evidence of their god. They don’t understand that the burden of proof is on them: they assert there is a god, let them bring forth the evidence.
