Science Guy’ Reveals Why He’s Ignoring Atheist Activists’ Warnings and Debating Creationist Ken Ham
Jan. 24, 2014 –
Since “science guy” Bill Nye’s upcoming Feb. 4 debate with anti-evolutionist Ken Ham at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., was made public a few weeks ago, atheist activists have spoken out fervently against the initiative.
Biologist Richard Dawkins and others tried to persuade Bill Nye that engaging with creationists is ideologically dangerous and gives undue publicity to those who oppose evolution. He said, “The guy challenged me to a duel. What am I gonna do?” The topic of the debate is: “Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern scientific era?”
