Bill Nye defends evolution in Kentucky debate

PETERSBURG, Ky. - Evolution, the Bible and the origin of the universe was up for debate as "Science Guy" Bill Nye shared the stage with the founder of Kentucky's Creation Museum.

Nye visited Kentucky to debate with Ken Ham Tuesday evening. The debate was broadcast live on YouTube.

The event attracted plenty of attention in science and faith circles, as Nye is a former TV star and Ham is prominent among Christians who believe the Bible tells a factual account of the Earth's beginnings.

Before the debate, the Creation Museum said the audience will be made up of visitors from 29 states.

Ham invited Nye to debate last year after Nye criticized the belief held by Ham and other creationists that the earth is just a few thousand years old.
