A T.V. Host vs. The Great Scientist

If you've read the latest, Bill Nye the Science Guy has claimed that parents who teach Creationism are harming their children. He's a “believer” in Evolution.

It is only disturbing to me because he is attacking my belief and accusing that I am harming my children by instilling that belief. Seriously? When there are terrorists out there training small children to kill the Western enemy? My “old-fashioned” belief is harmful?

Sure, an Evolutionist might thing I am delusional, or maybe narrow-minded (although, I beg to argue the same toward the Evolutionist who denies the obvious facts of read material that points to some of these facts, see the link below to The Creation Hypothesis), but to bring in the well-being of my children is NOT his place.

I just finished up a Bible study, and in 2Timothy chapter 3, it states:

3 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 6 For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Wow! Does that resonate with anyone? Yes, this was written thousands of years ago...but doesn't it sound familiar? But for this topic, the part that sticks out the most to me, is what I highlighted:

Always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

No matter how much a man learns, how much he dedicates himself to his field, he may never come to knowledge. He may never arrive at Truth if he denies the Holy God who gave him the brain to reason. Yes, as a hardcore Creationist, I believe God created everything...even the brain that can't fathom a Creator breathing life in all we see.

 Bill Nye says: ""You can believe what you want religiously. Religion is one thing, but science, provable science is something else. "***

And this is where he lost all credibility with me. He doesn't get it. He doesn't understand that religion is not just about going to church on Sunday. It's not about believing God exists. It's believing that everything is BECAUSE of God. We exist only because of God. To separate religion and science is impossible---God made science.
 Ooh, I wonder who's squirming now? ;)
The Creator didn't tempt man to unbelief by allowing him scientific skill. No, the Creator created him with this bent with the hope that he would use his talent to one day glorify God. Science is not a non-Christian belief, God is the most magnificent Scientist of all. But when science is given over as an idol, an ultimate truth without God, then men can learn all they want and never reach the truth.

What a shame.
