   LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Science guy Bill Nye is set to visit Kentucky next month for a debate on science and creation with Creation Museum founder Ken Ham.
 
   Ham wrote on his Facebook page that the museum will host Nye, the former host of a popular youth science show, on Feb. 4.

   Nye has been critical of creationists for their opposition to evolution and asserting that the Old Testament is a literal account of the earth's beginnings. Last year in an online video that drew nearly six million views, Nye said teaching creationism was bad for children. 
 
   The video prompted a response video from the Creation Museum and Ham later challenged him to a debate.
 
   The event will be titled "Is Creation A Viable Model of Origins?" The museum is planning to charge admission.
