Thousands to Live Stream Evolution/Creation Debate Between Ken Ham and Bill Nye ‘The Science Guy’

Ken Ham at the Creation MuseumMore than 10,000 churches, schools, colleges, and other groups have informed the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY, that they will be streaming the live debate between the museum’s founder, Ken Ham, and Bill Nye “The Science Guy” on Tuesday, February 4, at 7:00 p.m. ET.

Many more are expected to do the same, with some showing the debate to hundreds or even thousands as Liberty University in Virginia will be doing through its seven campus locations. In total, more than one million people are expected to watch.

“A debate with Mr. Nye, nationally known for his children’s TV program and for promoting evolution, will be one of our major events in 2014 to highlight how children and teens are being influenced by evolutionary thinking," remarked Ham, who is also CEO of Answers in Genesis (AiG), which operates the Creation Museum. “This year, our AiG theme is ‘Standing Our Ground, Rescuing Our Kids.’ Having the opportunity to hold a cordial but spirited debate with such a well-known personality who is admired by so many young people will help bring the creation/evolution issue to the attention of many more people, including youngsters.”

Among those who will be watching the debate onsite at the Creation Museum's 900-seat Legacy Hall auditorium will be credentialed media such as ABC, NBC, Scientific American magazine, Sydney Morning Herald (Australia), Al Jazeera America, and The New Yorker. Moderating the debate will be CNN Correspondent Tom Foreman.

Following the debate, Ham and Nye will walk inside the Creation Museum next door to be interviewed for the "Piers Morgan Live" program on CNN for a 9:45 p.m. post-debate analysis. During the 10:00 p.m. hour and inside the museum, MSNBC TV will interview Nye by himself.
