Q: Why did Ken Ham debate Bill Nye last year?
A: Free publicity for the Creation Museum. Obviously.
I don’t think Ham’s publishers are going to give me a $3,000 college scholarship for that response, though. They’re looking for a much more substantial defense of a debate that never should have happened in the first place:
THE TOPIC: What was your perception of the debate, and its purpose and necessity in a world dominated by secular philosophies?
The essay will be judged on creativity, clarity of thought, accuracy, research, grammar, and spelling.
I love how they’re going to judge it on “research.” If the students knew how to do that properly, they wouldn’t be Creationists in the first place.
