Bill Nye the Science Guy Debates Young Earth Creationism

Watching this debate last night was probably the most worthwhile two and a half hours I’ve spent on the internet in months. In it, Bill Nye (the Science Guy!) debates young Earth Creationist Ken Ham at the Creationism Museum in Kentucky about the age of the Earth (3.5 billion years vs. 6,000 years), evolution, the big bang, and so on.

I’m not going to launch into a tirade about Ken’s belief in an infallible book as scientific evidence, because that’s not what Nye does. He calmly and clearly explains why we know the things we know, and why it’s exciting that there are still things we DON’T know.

This is outside the normal purview of our site, but I know we have a smart bunch of folks here who can appreciate an intellectual debate, and I really do think everyone should watch this.
