    sounds interesting, three of the four "my favorite book" titles below deal with the Christian topic if the debate format does not answer your questions.

    Well, that went as I expected. Ken Ham can "make sense" only when there isn't someone else in the room who has a background in science and can call Ham out when he's talking manure. While he seemed to be "riding high" when he began his long presentation, that was before Bill Nye got started on his -- and made far more sense. Ken Ham was all but stuttering by the questions-and-answers part in the end, while Bill kept his cool -- and let the evidence speak for itself.

    Applause to Bill Nye for a job well-done.

    :)

    Bill Nye is a brilliant man. I loved his "science guy" show as a kid, but now that I am older it is great to see that he is still able to teach me new things. Without a doubt one of the better defenders of science out there!! Go Bill!!!

    One guy with facts and one guy who believes people and dinosaurs coexisted on Earth 6,000 years ago. I would hope the person with evidence would win a debate every time.

    I watched the end of this and loved it. Bill Nye is a Cornell alumni, which is the school I am at right now for grad school. Occasionally he visits and I would love to meet him...

    I thought Nye was incredibly composed and brought up some awesome evidence. I don't care what people choose to believe, but I certainly hope they are able to question and research their beliefs, and they are open to new ideas.

    When Bill gets up to speak, he makes sense and thoughtful questions brought up for us to ponder of its existence. When Mr Hamm gets up, after a few sentences, he lost me......I've tried to make sense of his "long winded" statements and it really didn't answer a lot of the hard questions Bill Nye was asking.
