As partial explanation, Byer noted, "As I watched Mr.Ham's mannerisms, you could sense a tremendous Spirit about him.He was gracious and the power of God showed through his life.There were multiple times I believed he could have hammered Nye on some of his inconsistencies but in my opinion chose not to." Michael Behe, a biologist at Lehigh University and an advocate of intelligent design, felt that by "talking on about the age of the Earth [rather] than on the elegance and complexities of life", both Ham and Nye lost the debate.The insults vary, with some people upset that Nye didn’t go more in-depth with the topics he has chosen to include in the series.Others, many of whom live in various continents around the world and didn’t grow up with Nye, called out the show for being lame, corny and trying too hard to fit in.Metropolitan Nicholas of the Greek Orthodox Church, who was trained as a scientist before taking holy orders, also criticized both Nye's and Ham's approach to the debate, saying that "Research that is done to challenge God, has the disease of prejudice. What problem is there with someone wanting to broaden the horizons of their thoughts and knowledge? God is not an ideology that we should by all means defend, but we believe in Him because He is Truth. If He is still questioned, it is time to find out about Him.A believer who fears scientific research, fears the truth.
Ham later announced that the publicity generated by the debate had spurred fundraising for Ai G's planned Ark Encounter theme park, allowing the ministry to begin construction.I don't believe people should go away saying 'Bill Nye won' or 'Ken Ham won.' I want to passionately deal with what I believe, and I want Bill Nye to passionately speak on what he believes." University of Chicago biologist Jerry Coyne contested Ham's distinction between historical science and observational science: "Science based on historical reconstruction, when done properly, is just as valid as science based on direct, real-time observation." While Coyne felt the debate may have given undeserved credibility to the creationist viewpoint, he concluded that, "The debate was Ham's to win and he lost.And the debate was Nye's to lose and he won." Science blogger Greg Laden, who had earlier expressed concerns about Nye's lack of evolutionary expertise, believed Nye's victory was as lop-sided as the Seattle Seahawks' victory over the Denver Broncos in the recently played Super Bowl XLVIII.Perhaps he is a believer who does not believe." On February 27, 2014, Ham announced that the publicity the debate generated for Ai G had spurred fundraising for its stalled Ark Encounter project, allowing the first phase of construction – a 510-foot (160 m) reconstruction of Noah's Ark estimated to cost million – to begin.Following the announcement, Nye told the Associated Press he hopes the project "goes out of business", adding "If [Ham] 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.
