Did you watch the debate? And a book recommendation

I did just because I find it all fascinating.  If you did not get to watch it then here it is again:

I enjoyed hearing both sides.  I also enjoyed some discussion from Facebook and one of the quotes I liked was from a friend of a friend:

"Bill Nye's bad comment came toward the end when he brought up dinosaurs (bad move). He was talking about the Survival of the Fittest and what he said was that "[dinosaurs] were taken out by a worldwide fireball, apparently caused by an impactor. That's the best theory we have. And we are the result of people, of organisms, that lived through that catastrophe". Really? A worldwide flood is completely irrational and impossible, but a worldwide fireball that kills giant leathery-skinned dinosaurs, but allows small, fleshy creatures to live, is a perfectly reasonable and accepted "scientific" explanation?"

There you have it - we all will still believe what we do I'm sure but it did give us some points to think about.  I didn't agree with everything on either side but I did hear some new information.

Also, check out Reasons to Believe.

Also if you are interested in dinosaurs from a creationist's point of view I have a neat book for you and your kids.

My son (he's 8) loves this book and asks me to read from it often.  I find it fascinating.  It comes from a creationist point of view and it also explains why the fossils were found in the manner they were and why it couldn't have been millions of years.

We'd really like to find what museums have these skeletons and go visit them.
