Bill Nye, the Science Guy, and Founder of the KY Creation Museum, Bill Ham, to Debate Evolution v. Creationism Tonight – Watch the Live Stream Here
LLLLet's get ready to rumble!
Sometimes I feel like all religious debates should start off with those famed words. People are very passionate about their beliefs and will go to the mattresses when defending them - which makes me wonder how the debate over creationism v. evolution will go tonight. Bill Nye "the Science Guy" will face off with Ken Ham, the founder of the Creation Museum.
It will focus on the question: "Is creation a viable model of origins?" It took me a second to figure out what that meant... What I came up with is: "Is creationism possible in the natural realm as we know it?"
Now, we all remember Bill Nye the Science Guy. He was the quirky guy on Saturday mornings who taught us about cells, inertia and exploding experiments. He was the guy we all wish we had teaching us AP Chemistry and Physics.
Nye has become an outspoken defender of science-based education and advocates parents to teach their children evolutionism over creationism.
"If you want to deny evolution and live 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," Nye said in the video. "We need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future."
Tonight, at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, Emmy Award-winning science educator and CEO of the Planetary Society Bill Nye has the opportunity to go toe-to-toe leading creation apologist and bestselling Christian author Ken Ham to debate over their own beliefs and theories.
"He's a well-known, highly respected personality," Ham said. "I think this is going to bring the creation-evolution issue to the public in a way that hasn't been done in a long time."
The debate begins at 7 PM and will be steamed live below. So, what do you think? Creationism or Evolution? Leave your comments below!
