Bill Nye Weighs In

Many of us watched all or part of the Ham on Nye Creationist debate.  Bill Nye addresses the debate about the debate in a self-penned article.  The link is below. 

For a variety of reasons scientists are generally advised not to debate creationists, thus the certain trepidation when our colleague, the well-known television science educator and CSI Fellow Bill Nye, accepted an invitation for just such a debate about origins with creationist Ken Ham. The debate took place February 4, 2014, at the Creation Museum in Kentucky and was streamed live worldwide. Afterward the Skeptical Inquirer invited Bill Nye to give his own first-person view of this much-watched and much-discussed debate, the circumstances surrounding it, his preparations and strategy, and the reasons he decided to take part.

Here's the full story in the Skeptical Inquirer.
