Bill Nye says the Bible was written 5000 yrs ago. Is he just bad at math or simply an idiot?

Is this the science guy who believes random molecules by chance were bound together to eventually form organisms without a Creator?

By all evidence it’s the finest history of the period. What’s your problem with it?

Oldest book from the Bible was written ~3,500 years ago. Are you really this pedantic? It's a fairy tale book from millennia ago, and his point remains the same.

Why is ANYONE still listening to Mr Nye? He’s a conman that will do and say anything for a buck.

We actually believe that the book of Job might be the oldest, and the events included in Job are believed to have occurred about the time of Abraham, around 2000 BC, though the account could have been written later. So 4,000 years ago AT THE MOST.

Just curious, Scott. When do you believe the Bible was written?

And yes, Bill Nye is an idiot. I love watching Ken Ham debate with him.

Right. He also said conservatives believe that every time a man and a woman have sex that they conceive a child. 😂

What would we expect? He's not even a real scientist. And he's obviously not a Christian. I would say that "idiot" seems to fit him very well.

Not this conservative. I took biology in high school, taught biology to my kids, and have read numerous books about conception, pregnancy, & childbirth! LOL

Bad choice of poll answers but I went with math because most of the Bible wasn’t written that long ago.

Hmmm 50% of Americans think that every time sex happens a baby is formed..... hmmmmmmmm.... in that case we would have 50% virgins... but even virgins don’t think that, so we have a population of like 90% virgins.

You sir, are a genius. Your iq is too high for me

Tsar, the Old Testament was actually written by numerous authors, over hundreds of years, in different places, not at one time and definitely not as late as 6 BC. 6 BC was actually 6 years before the year 0, not 600 years, also. (I also don’t think there was a year 0, just 1 AD, etc.)

They’ve had several debates. And like any debate, people interpret however they want. I usually watch them knowing who I support and find the opposition to look like an idiot, but I still learn from both sides. My opinion is that Bill Nye made himself look like an idiot, and Ken Ham presented his viewpoint quite well with Biblical AND scientific evidence. But, tomato tomahto.

The way I understand it, it would be 1 BC and then the next year was 1 AD. I could be wrong about that, though. Anyone else know?

The way he kept pausing and searching for words, I really think that he’s suffering from some form of dementia. This is NOT the Bill Nye from earlier years that was on top of things, could explain science so that little kids could understand it, etc. He apparently doesn’t even understand conception! So sad that he’s sunk this low!

Nope. The written word is correct. The spiritual discernment allows to to understand the differences between the different translations whether it is the King James Version or any other.

I’m not religious or anything so I’m not exactly sure. But I’m i just did a google search and it said Old Testament was written in 6 BC. The year is 2019. 6bc is 600 years before 0. 2019+600= 2619

2619 does not equal 3500 or 5000?

Again I’m not religious so I’m not sure, but i think both of your math are wrong

Normally I wouldn't correct you for this, but since we're on the topic, it's actually "millennia" if you're using the plural version. Millennium is singular.
