Bill Nye the Science Guy is debating creationist Ken Ham Tuesday night (Feb. 4) and you can watch it live here.

The 7:00 p.m. EST showdown is happening on Ham's home turf, at the Creation Museum which he founded in Petersburg, Ky. Moderated by CNN's Tom Foreman, the debate centers around the question "Is creation a viable model of origins in today's modern scientific era?" and will feature questions from the audience.

Nye is a longtime science communicator and the current CEO of the Planetary Society. His opponent is a "young Earth" creationist who reads everything in the Biblical book of Genesis as literal truth. You can read more about the debate here.
