Bill Nye the Science Guy will debate the founder of the Creation Museum in Kentucky next month.

Ken Ham wrote on his Facebook page, "Well, the big news for 2014 as we begin this new year is that in February, at the Creation Museum, I will be debating the well-known Bill Nye the Science Guy!"

"It's quite rare these days for such a well-known evolutionist to publicly debate a creationist — so we do expect a lot of media interest. For now, I just wanted to let you know about this — keep watch for details!" he added.

Last year, Nye posted a video online in which he said that teaching creationism was bad for children.

Story continues below video.




The Creation Museum responded with a video of its own, and Ham later challenged Nye to a debate, The Associated Press reports.

The event will reportedly be called "Is Creation a Viable Model of Origins?"
