Wide circulation email just sent:
"This is how the YEC bigot Bob Sorensen reacts when presented with facts via email (see my message sent from my O2 email address at 21.10 pm BST on 1 October). He runs back to safety of a Facebook page from which he knows his challenger has previously been banned (for posting the wrong sort of information in the past I presume though Mr Ham and his accomplices never did attempt to explain why I was banned) and quote-mines my message:
Please see at the current fourth conversation at this link (where the debate with Bill Nye is being discussed by Ken Ham supporters): https://www.facebook.com/aigkenham
"A Nye fanboy was incensed at my comment and posted a reply on an unimportant forum of the BCSE. His comments included, "Sorensen - you are a Liar for Jesus. Unless you can point to a
specific fact presented by Nye that has been scientifically debunked?"
I have, and he has complained about them before. Using 10 links to AiG's "Answering Bill Nye" and other things, I posted this:http://www.piltdownsuperman.com/2014/06 ... -bill.html
He also said, "As for Mr Ham - his tactic was to try and create as much confusion as possible about what we can learn about our origins and history using the scientific method."
Not only poisoning the well, but an appeal to motive fallacy. When calling other people liars without being able to support such claims, that makes HIM the liar."
First, note that Sorensen refuses to speak to me direct but instead complains about me on a dishonest and heavily policed Facebook page (where I cannot post) and where he thinks he will gain a sympathetic hearing and perhaps bolster his YEC persecution complex with some like-brained individuals.
Second, as mentioned the YEC has Quote-Mined my comments. The words he quotes were actually preceded by, and backed up by:
"[Quote of what Sorensen wrote on Ham's Facebook page.]
Nye's debate tactics were fine and that is why he won. The moderator
did not step in nor did he need to.
But the young earth creationists are crying foul and whinging -
because they have no science on their side as everyone else knows in
spades. As usual."
Third, Sorensen has posted a link (to one of his earlier blog posts) claiming to show - as I requested - that one or more facts presented by Bill Nye in February has been scientifically debunked. http://www.piltdownsuperman.com/2014/06 ... -bill.html
Well, I have read this post and it does NOT contain any scientific debunkings of dendrochronology or of skeletal evidence for hominid evolution nor any proof that there was a real Noah's Ark (which Nye doubted). Rather the earlier Sorensen post contains strident opinions, attempts to sow doubts and scepticism among those people who do not like the findings of science, and then a load of links to non peer-reviewed and unscientific material (radio broadcasts and written articles) specially produced, in a clear attempt to discredit Bill Nye and his evidence long after the debate itself, by ... you guessed, 'Answers in Genesis'.
Fourth, I do not need as Sorensen dishonestly implies, to 'support' my claim about how Ken Ham behaved at the debate with Bill Nye and what his overall tactics were. Truthful people will agree, if they watch the debate (as I did in full) that I accurately described to Sorensen how Ham behaved. Ham's rubbishing of 'historical' science was a clear and blatant attempt to create endless confusion about what if anything we can learn about our origins and history using the scientific method. In order to get those listening to the debate from the YEC camp to dismiss literally everything put forward by Bill Nye that debunks the YEC 'model' of origins and thus persuade people (again or for the first time) that the only true source document for human history is the Bible and nothing else (and all the science is all 'wrong' unless it 'agrees' with Genesis) .
By contrast, in his earlier Facebook comments Sorensen lied about how Nye behaved (as the FULL version of my earlier email to Sorensen demonstrated to him).
Sorensen is not an accidental Liar for Jesus. He is an unrepentant Liar for Jesus.
PS This message is going onto that unimportant BCSE community forum that Sorensen complains about."
