On July 8, 2016, just one day after the Ark Encounter opened near Williamstown, Kentucky, Bill Nye, TV’s “the Science Guy,” stopped by with his camera crew for a tour. I took him through all three decks of the Ark, resulting in an informal “second debate.” We had our film crew along as well and have released the uncut, two-hour debate on DVD.
We recently received this encouraging letter from Mike, a father from Ohio. Here’s what he said about this resource:
My family and I just watched the DVD you made of Mr. Nye's visit to the ark. . . . I could write pages about how I felt about it, but I'll keep it short.
I have watched several debates and discussions in my time, most of which I walked away thinking they were a disaster with my side not looking good. In this case, however, I was proud and impressed beyond words!
My whole family watched it, including my three small children. I kept pausing the video so we could cheer and discuss what was said. All of my children, including my 8-year-old son, were astounded at the ridiculous comments and contradictions coming from Mr. Nye. I was just floored, and so was my wife, at his comments, his demeanor, and his attempt to arrogantly bully you and the truth. He was so clearly out of his league trying to go up against you and the truth of God.
The most impressive part, though, was when you wrapped it up with a truly loving response of the message of the gospel and a prayer for Mr. Nye. What an inspiration and example you have given me and my children!
I pray that many people will be impacted by the truth of God’s Word and the gospel that I was privileged to share that day on the Ark. I encourage you to order copies of Nye/Ham: The Second Debate to share with your friends, family, and church, and you can also watch it on the Answers in Genesis YouTube page. It is a good teaching video that helps illustrate how to firmly, gently, and lovingly confront those who reject the truth of God’s Word.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
