“Bill Nye Ready to go to Hell for His Beliefs”
by Friday Church News Notes,   
September 19th, 2014

Bill Nye recently told Popular Science that he is ready to suffer eternal judgment rather than give up his evolutionary faith. "Let's say that I am, through my actions, doomed, and that I will go to hell. Even if I am going to hell, that still doesn't mean the Earth is 6,000 years old. The facts just don't reconcile" ("Evolutionist Bill Nye," CharismaNews, Sept. 10, 2014). Nye starred in the Disney/PBS children's television program "Bill Nye the Science Guy," which ran from 1993-1998 and which was part science and part comedic. Lately he has made himself the great defender of "true science," which in his mind is evolutionary science, and the avowed enemy of creation science. Nye claims that a young earth doesn't reconcile with the facts, but in a debate with Ken Ham in February he demonstrated a gross ignorance of the facts. Though he claims that creationism is dangerous to science, it was obvious that his examination of the creationist position has been perfunctory. It was apparent in the debate that he has not read the Bible. He doesn't know its content and history, the rules of biblical interpretation, the principles of biblical apologetics, and such things as biblical archaeology and ancient history touching the Bible. It was obvious, too, that he is ignorant of the wealth of material written by highly educated creationists in defense of the biblical worldview. To mention a few: Andrew Snelling, Ph.D. geology - Earth's Catastrophic Past, a two-volume, 1100-page work; Walt Brown, Ph.D. mechanical engineering, MIT - In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood; Stuart Burgess, Ph.D. biomimetics and engineering design - Hallmarks of Design; Lowell Coker, Ph.D. microbiology and biochemistry - Darwin's Design Dilemma; Don DeYoung, Ph.D. physics - Thousands ... Not Billions; Jonathan Sarfati, Ph.D. physical chemistry - By Design. All of these men are far more educated in "real science" than Bill Nye (with his Bachelor of Science degree in engineering), yet he despises their research by ignoring it. It was obvious, too, that Nye has not carefully examined the vast evidence that Jesus Christ is the Son of God that He claimed to be and that He did indeed rise from the dead as He said He would, evidence that has convinced many brilliant men and women, including scientists. Lacking the education necessary to reach an informed decision on his issue, Nye nonetheless cleaves stubbornly to his delusion that faith in the Bible is blind religious faith. And now he says he is ready to go to hell for his evolutionary faith, a faith which is indeed blind and which flies in the face of true science. Every known scientific fact tells us that a universe cannot come from nothing, that life cannot rise from non-life, and that complex things such as DNA require a designer and creator. I'm sorry for Bill Nye, but the Bible says his blindness is willful. He has the same opportunity to investigate the truth as any other man. For example, Bill Nye could read the books that have been written by  lawyers who have used their judicial skills to investigate the claims of Christ. Examples are Simon Greenleaf's An Examination of the Four Evangelists by the Rules of Evidence Administered in the Courts of Law, Edmund Bennett's The Four Gospels from a Lawyer's Standpoint, Irwin Linton's A Lawyer Examines the Bible: An introduction to Christian Evidences, and Sir Norman Anderson's Christianity the Witness of History: A Lawyer's Approach. Bill Nye doesn't have to go to hell. He could be saved through the lovely grace of Jesus Christ as multitudes of others have been, and the living Christ stands ready to prove the truth to any sincere seeker. "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13).
