MODERATOR: Now, let’s welcome our debaters, Mr. Bill Nye and Mr. Ken Ham. We had a coin toss earlier to determine who would go first of these two men. The only thing missing was Joe Namath in a fur coat, but it went very well. Mr. Ham won the coin toss, and he opted to speak first.

But first, let me tell you a little bit about both of these gentlemen.

Mr. Nye’s website describes him as a scientist, engineer, comedian, author, and inventor. Mr. Nye, as you may know, produced a number of award-winning TV shows, including the program he became so well known for, Bill Nye The Science Guy. While working on The Science Guy show, Mr. Nye won seven national Emmy Awards for writing, performing, and producing. The show won 18 Emmys in five years.

In between creating the shows, he wrote five kids’ books about science, including his latest title, Bill Nye’s Great Big Book of Tiny Germs. Bill Nye is the host of three television series. His program, The 100 Greatest Discoveries, airs on the Science Channel, The Eyes of Nye, airs on PBS stations across the country. He frequently appears on interview programs to discuss a variety of science topics. Mr. Nye serves as executive director of The Planetary Society, the world’s largest space interest group. He is a graduate of Cornell with a bachelor’s of science degree in mechanical engineering.

Mr. Ken Ham is the president and co-founder of Answers in Genesis, a Bible-defending organization that upholds the authority of the Scriptures from the very first verse. Mr. Ham is the man behind the popular high-tech Creation Museum where we’re holding this debate. The museum has had two million visitors in six years and has attracted much of the world’s media.
