Well-known apologist Ken Ham and outspoken evolutionist Bill Nye have agreed to a public creation-versus-evolution debate in early February.

Nye was the popular host of the children’s TV show Bill Nye the Science Guy, which was produced by Disney during the 1990s. An outspoken evolutionist, Nye was also featured in a YouTube video last year titled “Bill Nye: Creationism Is Not Appropriate For Children.”

“Denial of evolution is unique to the United States,” Nye says in the video, which has received nearly six million views. “…When you have a portion of the population that doesn’t believe in [evolution], it holds everybody back, really.”

Nye, who was recognized as the “2010 Humanist of the Year” by the American Humanist Association, claims that the “whole world” becomes “fantastically complicated” and “a mystery” for those who do not accept evolution—rather than “an exciting place.” Furthermore, he predicts that, “in another couple centuries,” the creationist worldview “just won’t exist,” saying “there’s no evidence for it.”

    I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men (us) are CREATED equal, that we are endowed by our CREATOR with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life . . . Bill, you are not a true scientist if you have the blind faith to believe that you evolved in violation of the scientific laws. Peace,

    The faith it takes to believe everything exists through a series of accidents is infinitely more than the faith it takes to believe a loving God created it all. He has revealed himself to those who seek him. Ken Ham has the truth on his side and will wipe the floor with Bill Nye. I’ve seen it before.
