The Answers in Genesis debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye will be shown live on BJU’s campus, and a faculty panel will conduct an on-screen social media discussion during the webcast.

Ham, a creationist and CEO of Answers in Genesis, and Nye, an evolutionist known as the “Science Guy,” will discuss a topic that has garnered much attention from the media: Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern scientific era?

The webcast will be shown Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m. in Stratton Hall, and seating will be first come, first serve. Tickets are not required.

The on-screen social media discussion will be conducted by four members of the BJU faculty: Dr. Dan Olinger, chairman of the Division of Bible; Dr. Ted Miller, faculty member of the Division of Bible; Dr. David Boyd, faculty member of the department of biology; and Dr. Bill Lovegrove, head of the department of physics and engineering. Students may text and tweet questions, and the panel’s answers will be shown on screen during the debate.
