Bill Nye debate at Creation Museum to be live on Cincy.com | NKY.com | cincinnati.com.

The much-anticipated debate on Tuesday night between Bill Nye “The Science Guy” and Ken Ham, founder of the Creation Museum, was sold out in minutes, but can still be seen live on Cincinnati.com or on your mobile devices…

The event, which is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., is expected attract plenty of attention in scientific and faith circles, as Nye is a high-profile advocate of science education and Ham is a leader among Christians who believe the Bible’s origin story is a factual account of the Earth’s beginnings.

I’m going to try to watch. It may be tough. I’m not a fan of debates and REALLY not a fan of Creationist drivel and unreality checks. But I’m hoping for the best.

    I’m going to have my son (age 12) listen to this. He is a natural skeptic and has questioned everything for as long as he has been able to talk (sometimes too much, lol). I would like him to listen to sound arguments based in science vs. arguments based in belief and see how he evaluates what he hears.

    You could make a Creationists Stock Phrases bingo and cross them off whenever Ham spews one.

        I’ll probably watch, but keeping in mind that if logic worked on creationists, there wouldn’t be any creationists. I don’t expect any to be converted by Bill Nye, and I’ll bet they’ll think Ken Ham “won” when the debate is over.

    It doesn’t matter how it goes, the finished product will be edited until it looks like the creationists won. Bill Nye had better get in some practice on how to handle the Gish Gallop. These creationists have been doing this sort of thing fro long time, whereas Nye has been fronting a science program. There’s a huge difference.

    Bill Nye the Science Guy vs. Ken Ham the Science Sham. Hmm, is it legal to bet on debates?

      I’ll take any and all bets. No way they cover the spread. Each side will claim victory without a single mind being swayed.

    The problem with public debates like this is that logical fallacies exist for a reason. They can be extremely powerful arguments. If the audience doesn’t already have the critical thinking skills to recognize this intellectual con artistry then the task of truly “winning” this debate is daunting. It’s hard to defend evolution as a legitimate scientific theory and teach logic at the same time and average Americans love bumper-sticker intellectualism. Creationists lose in court nearly every time because they have to present facts not clever speeches. In a debate they can be fallacious and very clever. It is extraordinarily difficult to outright win a debate against a talented creationist debater if “winning” means convincing a room full of people who are on the fence. Anyone strongly versed in evolutionary biology could play devil’s advocate and crush a scientifically literate pro-evolution debater. Evolution is far more complicated than we teach in undergrad and some of these creationists can get to that much trickier level. I’m sure Bill Nye is a smart man but he’s not trained in biology much less evolutionary biology so he is absolutely not the guy to have a serious evolution/ creation debate, Having said all that I’m not sure Ken Hamm is the the most formidable creationist he could face. It’ll be very interesting to see how this thing is moderated.

    Can’t we get Jamy Ian Swiss in on this as moderator? Then it could be a Ham and Swiss on Nye.
