Bill Nye to Debate Evolution at Kentucky's Creation Museum

Will Bill Nye deliver the ultimate science smackdown to creationists?
Will Bill Nye deliver the ultimate science smackdown to creationists?

Ken Ham, founder of Kentucky's Creation Museum, wrote on his blog that the bow-tied television personality, and staunch evolutionist, would square off with him in a Feb. 4 debate.

"This debate will help highlight the fact that so many young people are dismissing the Bible because of evolution, and even many young people who had grown up in the church decided to leave the church because they saw evolution as showing the Bible could not be trusted," Ham said.

An email inquiry to Nye's assistant was not immediately returned. The museum had been hoping to attract Nye after the star said in a Youtube video that teaching creationism was bad for children.

"I say to the grown-ups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that's completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that's fine, but don't make your kids do it because we need them," Nye said in the video, which has amassed nearly 6 million views.

The event, which is titled "Is Creation a Viable Model of Origins?" will be held at the Petersburg, Ky., museum's Legacy Hall. Tickets for the two-and-a-half hour debate cost $25, and will go on sale Jan. 6, according to the museum's website.
