It Just Doesn't Matter

So the big debate between Bill Nye the Science Guy and Ken "were you there?" Ham happened.

I didn't watch it live, but did check in on PZ Myers' live-blogging, and one might think, based on that, that Nye didn't do as badly as I'd feared. Not because Nye is incapable; but because no one can win a debate with a creationist. Ham, it seems, did his usual when confronted with contradictions: the Bible is true because it's in the Bible.

The debate occurred at Ham's creation "museum." The audience was mostly made of his supporters. Were minds changed? Did Nye's arguments make anyone think twice? After it was over, a person who was there asked audience members to write down questions for Bill Nye and hold them for pictures. Here's a sampling. The rest are here, if you want to torture yourself.

Oh god oh god oh god oh god.
