When I heard that Bill Nye would be having a debate with creationist Ken Ham, I figured it would be mostly comical.  I also assumed it would be about an hour or so long.  The second part I was definitely wrong about. What I thought was going to be a quick debate between two men …

If you missed the debate, here it is in a nutshell.

During the debate Q&A, when this question came up, after hearing Ken Ham & Bill Nye's responses, we tweeted "Why didn't they just ask that in the first place?
