The Bill Nye – Kenneth Ham Drinking Game

My girlfriend and I recently watched the soon-to-be-infamous (if not already) debate between Kenneth Ham of the Creationist Museum and the Answers In Genesis organization, and Bill Nye “The Science Guy.” My significant other and I gained such enjoyment out of the experience that we resolved that henceforth we would watch the debate every Christmas day and participate in a drinking game, sure to have us rolling on the floor not just with laughter but also with alcoholic stupor.

The main question of the debate was “Is Creation[ism] a valid model of origins in today’s modern, scientific era?”

DRINK WHEN:

  • Bill Nye uses the word “extraordinary” (referring to the claims of Kenneth Ham of proof and substantiations for Young-Earth Creationism found in the Bible and elsewhere)
  • Bill Nye uses the phrase “on the outside” (he’s referring to the science community not allied with Creationist causes)
  • Kenneth Ham uses the word “hijack” (referring to how scientists have appropriated the word “science”…from Creationists)
  • Kenneth Ham uses the word “book” (blatantly obvious referral to the Bible)

These four criteria are all you’ll need to be staggeringly, slobberingly drunk, likely within the first hour.

PLATINUM LEVEL

  • Bill Nye makes an appeal to “voters and taxpayers” (pleading with citizens to keep science legitimate in schools)
  • Bill Nye says the phrase “reasonable man” (referring to himself when considering Ham’s proofs)
  • Chug the rest of your current drink when Kenneth Ham goes on his “origin” diatribe (there’s a segment in particular near the close of the Q&A)
  • Chug the rest of your current drink when Bill Nye mentions the post-grad major conspicuously absent from Kentucky colleges and universities

You’ll likely want to ruminate after chugging, dare you attempt the Platinum level. This is the world we’re living in, folks.

I slept very soundly the night after we watched the debate, secure in my belief (dare I say “faith”) that godlessness is alive and well, and has at least one staunch, blindingly-intelligent, eloquent supporter. Hitchens may be gone, but Nye is performing admirably when attempting to fill those shoes.
