We all know who Bill Nye the Science Guy is, and it shouldn’t surprise us that he is an advocate for teaching theories such as the Big Bang or Darwinism in our schools. He is going to be debating Ken Ham, a Christian leader, at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. The event will be held on February 4th, at the museum; the two will be debating on the topic, “Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern scientific world?”.
Tickets are going on sale on January 6th, and will be $25.
This debate, on the age-old question of creationism vs evolution, is like the climax of the ongoing fight between Nye and creationism theorists, considering Nye’s video from 2012 calling creationism a dated theory that would only hold back young minds in school. Ham responded. Nye had made pretty extreme remarks in his video, to be honest. Ham wasn’t the only one who made a rebuttal, as other PhD scientists who consider creationism to be a viable explanation for why we walk this Earth also considered Nye’s initial flame of creationism to be in need of some criticism.
It is currently unknown whether the event will be aired on YouTube, but major points from the debate will most likely be posted on the web after it happens.
