Longview, Texas (LeTorneau University) —
LeTourneau University will host a panel discussion response to the debate on evolution vs creationism between Bill Nye, “the Science Guy,” and Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis, on Monday, Feb. 17, at 7 p.m.
The response will be in Room 117 in the Education Building on the LETU main campus, 2100 S. Mobberly Ave. The event is free and open to the public. The response will feature local theologians and a biologist to provide a thoughtful and constructive discussion on the topic of science and faith.
Each panelist will prepare a five-minute response to the Nye-Ham debate, followed by 10 minutes for panelists to discuss the responses before answering questions from the audience. LETU streamed live video of the highly anticipated evolution/creation debate on Feb. 4.
The debate took place in the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., where tickets sold out online in two minutes for the 900-seat theatre. The debate sought to answer whether creation is a viable model of origins.
