PETERSBURG, Ky. (AP) - "Science Guy" Bill Nye took the stage and promoted science in the snappy way that made him a pop culture staple on TV in the 1990s.

He was in Kentucky for a debate at a museum that has become widely known for exhibits that claim the Earth is 6,000 years old. Nye shared the stage Tuesday night with Creation Museum founder Ken Ham, who's built a ministry on a literal reading of the Bible's creation story.

The event explored the age old question, "How did we get here?" from the perspectives of faith and science.

It drew dozens of national media outlets and about 800 tickets sold out in minutes. Ham said ahead of the debate that the Creation Museum was having a peak day on its social media sites.
