A synopsis of a great debate (one I was not able to watch yet, but now we have the video) whether you are from either camp, olda age earth or young age earth, here is the synopsis from foxnews,com

True to his passionate and animated TV persona, „Science Guy” Bill Nye tapped on the podium, threw up his hands and noted that science shows the Earth is „billions and billions” of years old in a debate at a Kentucky museum known for teaching that the planet’s age is only 6,000.

Nye was debating Creation Museum founder Ken Ham and promoting science in the snappy way that made him a pop culture staple as host of „Bill Nye The Science Guy” in the 1990s.

The event was meant to explore the age old question, „How did we get here?” from the perspectives of faith and science.

Ham, an Australian native who has built a thriving ministry in Kentucky, said he trusts the story of creation presented by the Bible.

„The Bible is the word of God,” Ham said. „I admit that’s where I start from.”

‘The majority of people out there, they’re interested in this topic, they don’t want debate shut down.’

– Ken Ham, founder of the Creation Museum

Nye delivered a passionate speech on science and challenged the museum’s teachings on the age of the earth and the Bible’s flood story. Like most scientists, Nye believes there is no credible evidence that the world is only 6,000 years old.

At times, the debate had the feel of a university lecture, with slides and long-form presentations.
