Bill Nye debates evolution with leader of creation museum
AP: ‘Science Guy’ Bill Nye defended evolution on Tuesday night in a public debate with Creation Museum leader Ken Ham.
In the debate, Nye challenged the teachings of the Kentucky museum that earth is 6,000 years old and that the Bible serves as a scientific text. In response, Ham referenced the Bible’s creation story and scientists who he said were creationists.
Some scientists criticized Nye for debating somebody so dismissive of evolution.
"I just want to remind us all there are billions of people in the world who are deeply religious, who get enriched by the wonderful sense of community by their religion," Nye said. "But these same people do not embrace the extraordinary view that the Earth is somehow only 6,000 years old."

Try as I might, I can’t shake the feeling that 2014 is the year we lose the Web. The W3C push for DRM in all browsers is going to ensure that all interfaces built in HTML5 (which will be pretty much everything) will be opaque to users, and it will be illegal to report on security flaws in them…

Thanks for the heads up but can’t we keep on building websites without the new DRM extensions and avoid/opt out services that use them? I might be missing the point.
No, it doesn’t matter if you don’t build on those extensions. What matters is that there will no longer be any place on the Web for browsers that don’t have opaque code that’s illegal to report vulnerabilities in.
Those browsers will need OSes that are designed to support the kind of control Netflix demands — they’ll need secure paths from the browser to the screen, as well as the ability to detect when the browser is running in a VM — which pretty much kills GNU/Linux in one stroke.
