Are Right and Wrong, Opinions?

Nye vs. Ham Ark Debate

by on

Part 5



This is Ken Ham, president of the apologetics ministry, Answers in Genesis.


Yesterday we looked at Bill Nye “the Science Guy’s” claim that morality is determined by “feelings.” We saw that, in his view, no one can tell anyone else what they are doing is wrong since everyone can chose their own morality.

Well, Nye went on to say that “we establish laws by consensus.” But he admitted that different groups could “absolutely” have a different consensus.

Let us take this to its logical conclusion. Are terrorism and suicide bombings by extremist Muslims wrong? What about Nazi Germany or the sex trade? Who decides for these groups what is right and what is wrong?

You see, without the foundation of God’s Word, morality makes no sense.
