PETERSBURG, Ky. (AP) -- Evolution, the Bible and the origin of the universe will be up for debate when "Science Guy" Bill Nye shares the stage with the founder of Kentucky's Creation Museum.

Nye is in Kentucky to debate with Ken Ham on Tuesday evening.

The event is attracting plenty of attention in science and faith circles, as Nye is a former TV star and Ham is prominent among Christians who believe the Bible tells a factual account of the Earth's beginnings.

The Creation Museum says the audience will be made up of visitors from 29 states, and the debate will be streamed live online.

Ham invited Nye to debate last year after Nye criticized the belief held by Ham and other creationists that the earth is just a few thousand years old.

The debate will be available to watch live online here at 7 p.m.

I truly believe they are both right. God created the heavens and earth thru HIS infinite POWER OF SCIENCE of trial and error. In it He placed His 'experimental work' of animals, plants, water, air etc. When he saw all things good, he improved on them. When he saw his creation of man, he thought it His 'most wonderful and beautiful' creation. But He wanted to make them more like him and give them 'free will'. So he gave them some guidelines and rules to live by and there, in the Garden of Eden,)could have been anywhere in His world) He breathed the "BREATH OF "CONSCIOUSNESS" into our fat, egotistical, uncivilized, self centered, greedy, hateful, incredulous souls. SO WE WILL KNOW our 'creator' and His CREATION and 'maybe' be thankful and deserving. But most importantly, we "CONSCIOUSLY KNOW" we are not like the wild animals, who know of their CREATOR, but cannot think beyond their unknowing and limited minds. That's when WE ARE AWARE OF OURSELVES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN GODS CREATION RECORDED HISTORY. Before that we were no more smarter than the animals He also created and rules. We were living by instinct and survival. GOD caused the 'scientific approaches' we make to 'explain' how and why things happened and STILL happens. You cannot have a 'scientific approach or proof' of anything except through the absolute acknowledgement and belief of God. God gives us that chance to look at things 'scientifically' and to figure out how/why things happen. Because without God, we would not be here. It's my story and I'm sticking to it.
