EVOLUTION DEBATE-NYE
Bill Nye tells why he agreed to Creation Museum debate, says he underestimated its popularity

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 9:48 AM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


TV's "Science Guy" Bill Nye says he underestimated the impact of a February debate in Kentucky on evolution and creationism that drew a massive online audience.

Nye says when he agreed to the debate at The Creation Museum with its founder Ken Ham, he thought it "would get about the same amount of notice as a nice college gig."

Nye offered his thoughts on the Feb. 4 event and why he agreed to it in a letter published in the May/June issue of Skeptical Inquirer magazine.

Ahead of the debate, Nye wrote that everyone he met was talking about it, and he "slowly realized that this was a high pressure situation." The event was streamed live on the web and it was widely discussed on Twitter and Facebook.
