Bill Nye made a video advocating Evolution education:
The Creation Museum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creation_Museum) made a few response videos which I won't link so they don't get the views. Essentially they played on Science being a constantly changing truth and hard to understand (so it can't be a simple solution!). Now they are pretending to have a way to settle this 'debate'...
Dr. [Georgia] Purdom stated to the Christian Post, [an evolution-creation debate] “could be held at a public university, using an impartial moderator. I would think that someone as polished and charismatic as Mr. Nye would relish the opportunity to debate a creationist. In addition, since Nye will soon be hosting a new science program, I would think he would like to see the publicity generated by his participation in a major public debate.”
These guys can just stop right there. Nye doesn’t need the publicity. He's Bill Nye the fucking Science Guy...
Second, doing this debate would be a waste of Nye’s time. These debates don’t settle the truth of evolution — the evidence does. Science doesn't debate itself in front of an audience, letting the best speaker win. It debates itself in publishings, journals, and peer review, something that Creationists are more than welcome to participate in.
Obviously, the Creation Museum has never participated in that, so they feed off of publicity. Of course Ham wants this debate. It doesn’t matter that his side has nothing to present other than GodDidIt. He’s just going to spin the whole debate as proof that evolution and Creationism are locked in some sort of debate. Therefore, let’s get Creationism back into the schools.
There’s no need for a debate, because there’s no challenge to evolution.
