it went how I expected...

Which is to say both men repeated the main talking points of both Creationists and Evolutionists that anyone who has researched the topic has probably already heard many many times. However, I believe Ken Ham achieved the most important victory in the debate. You must remember, this whole thing happened because of the videos & interviews Bill Nye has done recently, in which he has claimed many times that Creationism is dangerous and no one who believes in Biblical Creation can possibly contribute positively in today's scientific world. In other words, children will be raised to not think or problem solve or invent new technology for the future. Ken Ham showed numerous videos of top scientists in the world today, currently making huge strides in different areas of research & development, all of whom are Biblical Creationists. The coolest one was a brief statement from the doctor who invented the MRI machine and revolutionized modern medicine. Ken Ham proved that you can be both a Creationist AND a top scientist. Nye ignorned this completely, and continued to spout the same claims that Creationism is not compatible with scienctific advancement, and also personlized it by calling it "Ken Ham's Account," as if he is the only person on earth who belives it. This was AFTER Ham had already shown proof of top scientists who held the same worldview. Since the main topic/purpose of the debate was not to prove Creationism or Evolution, but rather to answer the question, "Is Creationism relevant in today's scientific world?", I would say Ham best supported his claim of 'Yes' over Nye's claim of 'No.'
