LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Bill Nye “The Science Guy” is set to visit Kentucky next month for a debate on science and creation with the man who founded the Creation Museum.

Founder Ken Ham wrote on his Facebook page that the museum will host Nye, the former host of a popular youth science show, on Feb. 4.

Nye has been critical of creationists for their opposition to evolution and asserting that the Old Testament is a literal account of the earth’s beginnings. Last year in an online video that drew nearly 6 million views, Nye said teaching creationism was bad for children.

The video prompted a response video from the Creation Museum, and Ham later challenged him to a debate.

The event will be titled “Is Creation A Viable Model of Origins?” The museum is planning to charge admission.
