Yes, Bill Nye is a great spokesperson for science, but this business of him debating with creationist about the age of the earth and the facts of evolution is not worth our time...
True to his passionate and animated TV persona, "Science Guy" Bill Nye tapped on the podium, threw up his hands and noted that science shows the Earth is "billions and billions" of years old in a debate at a Kentucky museum known for teaching that the planet's age is only 6,000.
Nye was debating Creation Museum founder Ken Ham and promoting science in the snappy way that made him a pop culture staple as host of "Bill Nye The Science Guy" in the 1990s.
We must not give creationists even an inch of our attention. We must look through them and their beliefs like glass, like something that's not even there.
