Creation Museum founder decries ‘vicious secularist attack’ after criticizing Bill Nye
In a video uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, Creation Museum founder Ken Ham complained of “vicious” online attacks by “secularists” after criticizing Bill Nye, commonly know as “Bill Nye the Science Guy.”
In late August, Nye urged parents to not teach their children creationism because the United States needed “scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future.”
His comments did not sit well with the Creation Museum, a large exhibit in Kentucky that depicts dinosaurs living alongside humans in the Garden of Eden. The museum responded with a video featuring Dr. David Menton and Dr. Georgia Purdom.
Ham said that the verbal assault on the two Creation Museum staff was proof that secularists were insecure.
“When you see such an emotional response from these secularists, when you see the name calling, the the profanity, you realize what they’re doing is trying to suppress the truth,” he continued. “In a way, they are closing their ears, covering their eyes, and they’re saying, ‘we refuse to believe that there is a god who created us.’”
Ham said the incident showed a clash of two religions, particularly “man’s word” and “god’s word.”
