Tonight at 7.00 pm  EST Bill Nye, The Science Guy, will debate Ken Ham, founder of the Creation Museum. The topic debated shall be "Is creation a viable model of origins in today's modern scientific era?" and is sure to be a lively one. 

Here is some information regarding the two men taking part in the debate from the website.

Ham is a leading creation apologist, best-selling Christian author and president/CEO of Answers in Genesis (AiG), the Bible-defending organization behind the museum and sponsor of the event.
A former science instructor who immigrated to the United States from Australia 27 years ago, he and other creationists contend the universe and living organisms originate from specific acts of divine creation, as in the biblical account found in the Book of Genesis, rather than by natural processes such as evolution.
Nye, a former host of the popular "Bill Nye the Science Guy" TV program for children, supports the idea of evolution, the belief that different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth. The theory of evolution was popularized by Charles Darwin in 1859 by way of his book, "On the Origin of Species."
Nye is also the current executive director of the Planetary Society and a frequent guest on TV and radio interview programs on science topics like evolution and creation.
The live debate begins shortly. Feel free to comment.
