On the upcoming Bill Nye-Ken Ham debate

Apparently, the nonbelieving community is in an uproar over Bill Nye agreeing to debate creationist kook job Ken Ham. I don’t think Nye does himself any favors by agreeing to this, and it’ll be mostly theater in any case, with Ham trotting out his tired and long-since debunked refrain on creationist “theory,” and Nye futilely making the case from science to someone who doesn’t respect the scientific method in the first place. It seems to me that debating someone who has long since thrown reason, if he ever had it in the first place, out the door partially legitimizes an argument that doesn’t deserve an ounce of respect or consideration in the first place.
