Muslim Review: Bill Nye Debates Ken Ham | Bill Nye Argument Explored | Part (1/2)

Muslim Review: Bill Nye Debates Ken Ham | Bill Nye Argument Explored | Part (1/2)

On Tuesday 4 February 2014 the science guy "Bill Nye" debate the Christian creationism apologist "Ken Ham" at "Creation Museum" in petersburg, united states.

Starting with "Bill Nye" argument; unfortunately it was exclusively based on 2 point concerning the biblical creation view! 

Firstly; the 6000 years old earth!
And secondly; the 4000 years ago global Noah flood!

In fact both these arguments have nothing to do with Islam at all Firstly; No Muslim in the world believes in the young earth creationism including Muslim creationists like "Adnan Oktar" who is referred as Old Earth creationist as there is no single reference in Muslim sources; "The Quran" or "Hadith" that refer to such idea.

In contrast to the bible, the Quran doesn't give a detailed Genealogy from Adam to us, and doesn't say at all that Adam was created Once the earth was created.

 Secondly; Concerning Noah flood covered all the earth just 4000 years ago, In contrast to the bible which say that the flood covered all the earth and left no single creature as in Genesis 6:17 and Genesis 7:21-23.

In contrast to the bible, The Quran confirms it is impossible that Noah flood covered and destroyed all the earth for many reasons;

Firstly; The Quran says that Noah was sent only to his people as in Surat Nuh [71:1] : Indeed, We sent Noah to his people, [saying], "Warn your people before there comes to them a painful punishment."

Therefore the warning was to the people of Noah only and not to the whole world therefore the punishment was to his people only and not the whole world, as it is mentioned also in the Quran; Surat Al-'Isra' [17:15] : Whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] his soul. And whoever errs only errs against it. And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And never would We punish until We sent a messenger.

Furthermore, the Quran says that; after the end of the flood there was so many nations outside Noah's nation as it is mentioned in; Surat Hud [11:48] : It was said, "O Nuh, (Noah) get down in Peace from Us, and blessings upon you and upon nations from (among) the ones with you. And (to other) nations We will soon give enjoyment, thereafter painful torment from Us will touch them." (i.e., befall them)

Another point was raised by "bill nye" was about the shape of the ark as while the bible describe it as an ark with Rectangular shape its length six times its width, and made totally of wood as it is mentioned in Genesis 6, Which makes it easily sink!

In contrast to the bible, The Quran confirms that it was a ship not an ark, and doesn't give any description to it's size, and mentions also that it was made from both wood and nails as in; 

That is why the famous medical doctor and egyptologist "Maurice Bucaille" said in his conclusion concerning this matter in his book "The Bible, the Qu'ran and Science: The Holy Scriptures Examined in the Light of Modern Knowledge";

In conclusion, it is possible to state categorically what major differences exist here between the Biblical and Qur'anic narrations. Some of them escape critical examination because objective data are lacking. When, however, it is possible to check the statements in the Scriptures in the light of the established data, the incompatibility between the Biblical narration-i.e. the information given on its place in time and geographical extent-and the discoveries that have contributed to modern knowledge is all too clear. In contrast to this, the narration contained in the Qur'an is free from anything which might give rise to objective criticism. One might ask if it is possible that, between the time of the Biblical narration and the one contained in the Qur'an, man could have acquired knowledge that shed light on this event. The answer is no, because from the time of the Old Testament to the Qur'an, the only document man possessed on this ancient story was the Bible itself. If human factors are unable to account for the changes in the narrations which affected their meaning with regard to modern knowledge, another explanation has to be accepted, i.e. a Revelation which came after the one contained in the Bible.
