TV host Bill Nye will debate creationism, which he has said should not be taught to children, at Kentucky’s Creation Museum
Bill Nye “The Science Guy” is set to visit Kentucky to debate evolution and biblical creation with the founder of the Creation Museum.
Ken Ham wrote on his Facebook page that he will square off Feb. 4 with Nye, the former host of a popular science TV show for youths.
The event is likely to attract plenty of attention in scientific and faith circles, as Nye is a high-profile advocate of science education and Ham is a respected leader among Christians who believe the Bible’s origin story is a factual account of the Earth’s beginnings.
Ham had been hoping to attract the star of TV’s Bill Nye The Science Guy to the northern Kentucky museum after Nye said in an online video last year that teaching creationism was bad for children. (Photo: Todd Williamson/Invision for the Hub Network/The Associated Press)
