Creation Museum: ‘The Media is Split’ About the Bill Nye/Ken Ham Debate

Let’s throw an easy question out there: If you had to criticize Bill Nye over Tuesday night’s Creationism/Evolution debate, what would you say?

The vow is an attempt to boost ethics among bank personnel and increase consumer confidence in financial institutions.
