    Or is Ken Ham aware of the different layers of differing fossils in different layers of rock, but neglecting to address that claim because he has so much vested interest in creationism that he needs to lie by omission?

    Bill Nye has no reason to lie, science doesn’t care if people’s feelings get hurt. Science – historical or otherwise – is about a search for truth and understanding. Yes, there was clearly ignorance on both sides of the debate, but I don’t see where Bill Nye has any incentive to lie.

    As for the ice cores – that is questionable because there would be many factors involved. Bill Nye did reference that they were able to extract information about the atmosphere from different layers, and I suspect that would result in a more thorough understanding of what the rings actually represent, especially when cross-referenced with relate-able findings.

      Able to extract atmosphere… how do they know what the atmosphere was like 650k years ago?

      • Gerardo says:

        From the ice layers. And how are they able to tell the different ice layers? From the atmosphere. Sounds like circular reasoning to me lol.

        Paleoclimatology
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleoclimatology

        “Paleoclimatology (in British spelling, palaeoclimatology) is the study of changes in climate taken on the scale of the entire history of Earth. It uses a variety of proxy methods from the Earth and life sciences to obtain data previously preserved within (e.g.) rocks, sediments, ice sheets, tree rings, corals, shells and microfossils; it then uses these records to determine the past states of the Earth’s various climate regions and its atmospheric system. Studies of past changes in the environment and biodiversity often reflect on the current situation, and specifically the impact of climate on mass extinctions and biotic recovery.”

    Whether or not you side for Bill or Ken, I differ with you Jason regarding, “science reason to lie.” I have been involved in the science community for many years and have seen many reasons for scientists to lie and slant conclusions. There is a great deal vested in modern theories. A true search for truth and understanding will honor questions to ideas and theories. Not all science is as quantifiable as would be believed. Gaps in data are often inferred. A school should honor in depth research, evaluation and discussion of all topics.
