Tickets for the actual event at the Creation Museum sold out in two minutes.
But tomorrow’s the big day, and you have local options for viewing the debate live.
Bill Nye was host of “Bill Nye the Science Guy” television show for five years. His following ubiquity in pop culture has made him one of the few scientists who’s pretty much a household name. Ken Ham is the CEO of Answers in Genesis, the religious organization that operates the Creation Museum and the planned Ark park.
Both Nye and Ham have positioned themselves at the center of debate over creationism and evolution. And tomorrow night, they will go head-to-head in a live debate addressing the question: “Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern, scientific era?”
And you can be there — well, you can watch live on a screen — here in Louisville.
Tickets for the live screening at the freshly renovated IMAX theater at the Kentucky Science Center sold out this evening. But tickets were free, meaning there will likely be some no-shows. At 7 p.m. tomorrow, the theater will release any unclaimed tickets. Doors at the Kentucky Science Center theater are at 6:30 p.m.
Also free and with potentially needed beer close at hand is a watch party at the BBC on East Main Street. This event was put together by the folks at #openbeerlou.
From the event page:
The debate will be televised live at the downtown Bluegrass Brewing Company in their upstairs event space. The room features multiple televisions and a powerful sound system to make sure everyone can hear from anywhere in the room. Come out and join us for the debate watch party on Tuesday night and experience the event with others! There are two parking garages next to BBC and street parking is also free in the evenings.
