In August 2012, Bill Nye “the Science Guy” posted a video on YouTube (that has since been viewed more than 6 million times!) arguing that teaching biblical creationism was bad for children. In response, Ken Ham, founder of Northern Kentucky’s Creation Museum, made his own video championing creationism, and after more than a year, the two men held a highly-anticipated public debate last night, February 4, at the museum. The topic? “Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern scientific era?”
According to the Courier-Journal, the $25 tickets to the live event “sold out in two minutes, and discussion of the event has lit up cultural blogs, attracted national attention and stoked an ages-old fight between science and religion.”
