Bill Nye the Science Guy recently produced a video that has gone viral (see below). It features "The Science Guy" castigating parents who teach creationism to their children. In short, he thinks parents should not be allowed to teach their children such a thing. If parents want to believe in fairy tales like creationism, that is fine. But it is not fine—according to "The Science Guy"—for parents to foist those fairy tales on their children.
Ken Hamm—President of "Answers in Genesis" and the Creation Museum—created his own video to refute "The Science Guy" and to argue for creationism (see below).
The conflict has led to the two men agreeing to a public debate about the issues. The debate will be held on February 4 at the Creation Museum. Here are the details:
"Is creation a viable model of origins?" Creation Museum Founder and AiG President/CEO Ken Ham will debate Bill Nye at the Creation Museum on Tuesday, February 4, at 7 PM. Bill Nye is the former host of the popular Bill Nye the Science Guy TV program for children, current Executive Director of the Planetary Society, and frequent pro-evolution guest on TV interview programs.
