Great job, Ken & Ray!
The moderator almost let it turn into another Ken Ham/Hugh Ross debate. Personally I find that they say essentially the same things every time they have an exchange (and even so a lot of their comments can be very unfocused once they get going), so I was glad the other contributors were there to change things up a bit. On a more positive note, Ken's opening statement was probably the best of the lot, and both YEC and OEC were fairly represented (given the constraints of the discussion format). Adding a theistic evolutionist to the panel would have been interesting, but that might be another discussion altogether. Lots of good food for thought in this video.
Is this something new Hugh brought up.....does he believe there are fossils on the moon? Is that true, or is he just speculating again? The tonnage number he mentioned....is there any truth to that?
For whatever it's worth, a quick skim of relevant wikipedia articles doesn't say anything about moon fossils. What I got from that part of the discussion was that Hugh expects there to be a certain number of fossils on the moon, and the type of fossils will either confirm or disconfirm evolution. But where he gets the idea that there is reason to expect fossils on the moon I don't know. Wouldn't be the first time he has made some odd claims.
I'd read a decade ago that we should "expect" to find material from earth scattered all over the solar system since every time a large asteroid strikes earth it creates such an explosion that it launches our rocks into outer space, which then land on the moon, Mars and elsewhere. So if we find signs of previous life on other planets or moons, it doesn't mean that life originated there, rather, if we find fossils anywhere, they could all have come from earth (having been deposited there by explosions down here). Then....what if an asteroid strikes the moon and launches the same rocks that came from earth BACK to earth from whence they came in the first place? Well, then someone can say....wow, look at this asteroid....it's got earth-like fossils in it....and it CAME from outer space....wow, there must be life somewhere else in the universe? That's not called circular reasoning, it's called rocks flying in circles (free round trip from earth-moon).
It is noteworthy that only two members of the panel had their Bibles with them - Ken Ham and Eric Hovind.
Ken Ham, Paul Taylor and Eric Hovind will be speaking together at the Proof of God Conference, October 12-13 in Orlando...it's going to be really exciting...who in this group is coming?
I love this.
