Bill Nye's Book "Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation" Is Now Out

Last February of this year, Bill Nye traveled to Petersburg, Kentucky to debate Ken Ham who is arguably the most well-known proponent of young earth creationism (YEC). In a nutshell, the affair was a battle between Nye's belief in the theory of evolution and Ham's faith in the account of creation as found in the Christian Bible.

For over two hours, the two men took to the pulpit to defend their positions. Who won? It depends on who you ask. If you ask people from the scientific community, they would say Nye won by a landslide. If you ask believers of a higher power, many of them would say Ham took home the bacon.

As someone who can't ignore the mountain of evidence supporting the theory of evolution, Nye had all my support when he went to Kentucky and locked horns with a well-known creationist in his home turf. The encounter happened at no other than the Creation Museum, a sprawling institution that teaches people that humans and dinosaurs co-existed less than 10,000 years ago.

The debate sparked a lot of controversy. It was also heavily covered by the media. Controversial or not, there's one undeniable good thing that came out of it. And that is Nye was inspired to write a full-length book to address the issues and questions raised during the debate.

The book has been released this November and it quickly climbed the bestseller lists. Titled Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation, the book was published by St. Martin's Press.
