Information from Matter?

Nye vs. Ham Ark Debate

Part 3



This is Ken Ham, inviting you to visit the world-class Ark Encounter attraction.


DNA is an incredibly complex language and information system that is built into the cells of every living thing.

Now, during his visit to our full-size Ark, I challenged Bill Nye “the Science Guy” to explain how matter could produce a language system with trillions of bits of information. Such a thing has never been observed—information always comes from other information.

His answer? “Here we are.” That is his evidence! But Nye is not really starting with the evidence. The evidence we observe is that information can’t arise by natural processes. He’s starting with a belief that somehow this happened because, well, we're here. Nye has already excluded God, so all he is left with is naturalism.
