The Nye-Ham Creation Debate: Where Was Intelligent Design?

On this episode of ID the Future, Research Coordinator Casey Luskin discusses the recent debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye that pitted Young Earth Creationism against neo-Darwinian evolution. Since the great majority of Ham's arguments amounted to "Because the Bible says so," the powerful evidence for design in nature was hardly even touched upon. Listen in as Casey explores "what could have been" in the Creation Debate, responding to some of Bill Nye's points about Tiktaalik, hominid skulls, and more.
