billnye-620x244
Scientist Bill Nye has agreed to debate Christian leader Ken Ham next month at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., where the two will face off over the ever-contentious topics of evolution and creationism. According to a release published on AnswersInGenesis.org, the website for Ham’s organization, the event will begin at 7 p.m. on Feb. 4, 2014 inside the museum’s 900-seat Legacy Hall. The two will dialogue on an agreed upon topic: “Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern scientific world?”  
Ham said that he’s looking forward to the debate — one that he believes will help shed light on how young people are being educated; Nye once had a popular kids’ show called “Bill Nye the Science Guy” and has made comments touting the importance of evolution in children’s education.
 “This year, our AiG theme is ‘Standing Our Ground, Rescuing Our Kids,” Ham said. “Having the opportunity to hold a cordial but spirited debate with such a well-known personality who is admired by so many young people will help bring the creation/evolution issue to the attention of many more people, including youngsters.” The creationist leader is hoping he can show Nye and the debate audience that Genesis — and not evolution — provides an accurate creation account. Tickets, which will cost $25, will go on sale starting Jan. 6. More
