Last night I discussed the 'great debate' between Bill Nye, theScience Guy, and Ken Ham, Founder and CEO of Answers in Genesis, on Gil Gross's afternoon radio program on San Francisco's KKSF, 910AM. My segment starts about halfway in. It's always a bit jarring to hear your own voice, especially through a telephone. (Hopefully I did not sound too 'Boston'.)
