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 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.
