Bitterness

You may (or may not ) have heard about the debate between TV science personality Bill Nye and Answers in Genesis President Ken Ham.

One of the things Ken Ham is involved in is a building of a full-size replica of Noah’s Ark (sorry about the auto-play video).  And not long after the debate – in fact, the day after Mr. Ham ‘announced he would be moving forward with plans to build a life-sized replica of Noah's ark, Bill Nye, his former debate opponent, said he hopes "the Ark Encounter goes out of business."’

Now, whatever you might think of Mr. Ham’s construction project, it strikes me that Mr. Nye is showing an unbecoming level of bitterness towards it:
"If he builds that ark, it's my strong opinion, it's bad for the commonwealth of Kentucky and bad for scientists based in Kentucky and bad for the U.S. And I'm not joking, bad for the world," said Nye.
Of course, this type of bitterness seems par for the course for the more, shall we say, ‘vocal’ adherents of Darwinism whenever their dogma is threatened.
