Bill Nye Debates Ken Ham

Answers in Genesis

Live Streaming FREE on Feb. 4 at 7 PM ET

Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern, scientific era? Leading creation apologist and bestselling Christian author Ken Ham is joined at the Creation Museum by Emmy Award-winning science educator and CEO of the Planetary Society Bill Nye.  

Ham, a former science instructor who emigrated to the USA from Australia over 25 years ago, is joined by the popular children’s program personality Bill Nye “the Science Guy” for this first and only scheduled debate. Each man delivers what he believes is the best information currently available for his case. Each then has an opportunity for rebuttal and afterward answers questions submitted by the audience.

The upcoming February 4 debate has already generated significant attention from national media, and tickets to attend live were completely sold out within two minutes of release.

  1. wow — 900 seats in two minutes. I thought only rock-n-roll bands could do that, and it’s certainly not something I would expect from Bill Nye the science guy.

  2. I will take SCIENCE any day over any BOOK. I care not who wrote the book or how many are sold. I respect evidence and seek truth.

    1. FWIW, niether evolution nor creation is science. Empirical proof is needed in both cases. Just because Nye is a “science guy” doesn’t mean evolution is truth, and just because the Bible isn’t a science book doesn’t mean it’s nonsense. How does Nye prove evolution is truth (as opposed to it being just a theory…since when is evolution scientific LAW? Because Dawson and Nye and others say it is?) if he was not there millions of years ago to witness it? Until I see EMPIRICAL PROOF that evolution is truth, I’m not buying it.

      Sue, show me some EMPIRICAL proof that evolution is truth, a LAW of science, and I’ll buy your argument. You do not have to prove to me creation is not science, I already know that one.

  3. Bill Nye wants to see physical proof
    before he’ll believe anything.
    Ken Ham takes God’s word for the
    answers to life’s questions.
    The difference is :
    One has faith …
    The other needs proof …
    God provides the proof when
    one has the faith to see.

    1. Totally agree…still creation is not science and I don’t care how much “intelligent design” folks say it is…faith, not science.

      Mathematics…now THAT’S TRUTH! And likely God invented it!
