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.

Alice Munro — ‘a master of the contemporary short story’ — wins the Nobel Prize for literature
Decorated Canadian author Alice Munro says she never thought she would win the Nobel Prize for Literature, but calls being the first Canadian-based writer to secure the honour “quite wonderful.”

'They'll prostitute you for all you are worth': Sinead O’Connor's stark warning to Miley Cyrus
A young Sinead O’Connor with long, flowing locks was once offered a recording contract based on her commercial appeal, so she … promptly shaved her head.
Sinead went on to become one of the bestselling female artists of all time anyway. Now she’s offering up some free advice to pop star du jour Miley Cyrus, who as of late has been looking to buck her own commercial appeal with a new, short-cropped look.
“The music business doesn’t give a sh-t about you, or any of us,” Sinead writes. “They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think it’s what YOU wanted … and when you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted, ‘they’ will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your body and you will find yourself very alone.” (Photo: Fred Tanneau/AFP/Getty Images files; Christopher Polk/Getty Images files)

Agency sparks outrage with ‘Diana’ movie poster at site of Princess’s death 
Distastefully placed ads are nothing new, but people were outraged this week after a poster for the new Naomi Watts-starring “Diana” movie was placed at the site of the beloved princess’s death.
The poster was at the Pont de l’Alma, near the Flame of Liberty, which has served as a memorial to the Princess of Wales and is near the entrance to the tunnel in Paris where Diana died in a car crash in 1997.
The poster’s placement drew much criticism from “one of the Princess’ most trusted confidantes” Rosa Monckton, who told The Daily Mail: “To have made a film so speculative and as this is disgusting enough, but to then advertise it on the spot at which she died is despicable.”

'I don’t love women writers enough to teach them': Giller-nominated author and University of Toronto teacher on why he only teaches books by men
David Gilmour has never been afraid to speak his mind. In a 2011 interview with the National Post, he admitted wanting to “beat the living s–t” out of a critic who’d given him a bad review and spoke at length about how much he hated socializing with fellow Canadian authors, whom he labelled “insecure.” His words have finally come back to haunt him. On Wednesday, Hazlitt, an online magazine published by Random House of Canada, posted a story by Emily M. Keeler — who, full disclosure, writes reviews for the Post — about the 63-year-old Gilmour, who spent over a decade working for the CBC as a film critic and arts reporter. In the article, about his bookshelves, Gilmour said, among other things, that “I’m not interested in teaching books by women” and “I don’t love women writers enough to teach them, if you want women writers go down the hall. What I teach is guys. Serious heterosexual guys.” Gilmour, whose latest novel, Extraordinary, was recently longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, tried to explain himself to Books Editor Mark Medley. (Photo: Della Rollins for National Post)
