Bill Nye Says He Hopes Ken Ham's Ark Encounter Project 'Goes Out of Business'
A day after Ken Ham, president and CEO of the creationist organization Answer in Genesis announced he would be moving forward with plans to build a life-sized replica of Noah's ark, Bill Nye, his former debate opponent, said he hopes "the Ark Encounter goes out of business."
On Thursday, Ham announced in a live web stream from the Kentucky-based Creation Museum that his organization has been able to come up with funding for the project, despite its financial viability being questioned last month....
Hi Michael...I agree with your last paragraph because I always think about what a great witness the genuine, born again, conversion of an athiest in the public eye might be. I try to imagine a pope as well, but I suppose he would suffer excommunication as a heretic before he could do any real "damage".

Christopher000 I think it is safe to say that in the very nature of sin is the reality of men (women too) seeking to make themselves God, or at least a lesser diety, even in churches into some kind of a "pope" if you will.
In the righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ we see something quite different, He who is Diety, the 2 nd Person of the Godhead, lays His glory aside to be a servant. He told us He did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life a ransom for others.
May God give Bill Nye (others too) a "train wreck of conversion" similar to Mrs. Butterfied author of "The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert" if I am remembering the title correctly.
Always amazing how passionate the athiests are against God. Would you think that if they truly didn't believe in a creator, they would just snicker amongst themselves saying,"Oh, there go those crazy Christians again", but not be bothered in any way? No, the Word of God is accurate and they remain willfully ignorant. I feel that they hate the God of the universe with a passion, can't stomach the thought of being held accountable to Him, and won't be told what to do or how to live...by anyone.
Let me get this straight, Bill Nye has no problem with Mickey Mouse and Cinderella's Castle as tourist attractions, but he has a problem with a replica of Noah's ark as a tourist attraction. If he is so confident with his system of truth, how could either of these be a threat to it? Is not wisdom justified of all her children? Luke 7:35 KJV  But wisdom is justified of all her children.

Acts 19 24 ..A certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, which made silver shrines for Diana, brought no small gain unto the craftsmen; 25 Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this craft we have our wealth. 26 Moreover ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands: 27 So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth. 28 And when they heard these sayings, they were full of wrath, and cried out, saying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians.
Nye's intellectual capital (if we can call it that) and his earning power would be eroded away by the widespread acceptance of God's word. Of course he wants the place shut down.
