Quick Take: Credibility

In light of tonight’s debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham on evolution and creationism, I thought of this quote from Man of the Year:

If everything seems credible then nothing seems credible. You know, TV puts everybody in those boxes, side-by-side. On one side, there’s this certifiable lunatic who says the Holocaust never happened. And next to him is this noted, honored historian who knows all about the Holocaust. And now, there they sit, side-by-side, they look like equals! Everything they say seems to be credible. And so, as it goes on, nothing seems credible anymore! We just stopped listening!

If nothing is credible, how do you explain the world to a 4-year-old? And not only that, but what terms do you use?

Just some questions and food for thought.
