    I'm playing World of Warcraft right now, and I think my time is being used smarter and more productively than anyone watching the 'debate'.

    Oh, okay, we can all go home now, I guess.

    Re: Bill Nye the Science Guy to debate Creation museum founder Ken Ham[W:164]

    I find this debate incredibly dissatisfying and underwhelming. Ken Ham is clearly well-versed on his discussion points, whereas Bill Nye seems to be struggling to organize his thoughts (perhaps the lack of a screenwriter? ). I think Bill is missing an opportunity to discuss the logical incongruity between mainstream science and creationism. Mr. Ham describes both as "two philosophical worldviews" and "beliefs." I think it is important to highlight that science isn't about 'proving' or 'belief' or 'philosophy', but rather objectivity and best, testable explanations. The difference is between a priori (creationism: explanation comes before the evidence [and, I would argue, that the 'evidence' cannot be removed from potential bias, given that it is being tailored to a specific conclusion]) and a posteriori ('mainstream' science: explanation comes from evidence) thinking.

    It sounds like 2 salesmen desperately trying to sell their product. Bill Nye is quite possibly the worst person they could have picked for this. So many eloquent advocates for scientific theory (Dawkins comes to mind).

    If I'm not mistaken they didn't pick Nye. He challenged Ham.

    In any case, Ken Ham, the moron who founded the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY, challenged Bill Nye to a public debate and…
    Nope.
