Bill Nye,the Science Guy,  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.

Some have estimated that as many as a million people will witness the event online.
