    with quite a bit of invertebrate paleontology in my background.  I'm also not sure this is a wise move by Nye.

    He's a mechanical engineer by education, if I recall, and I would worry about getting sucked into minutiae about genetics, DNA, and "kinds" while potentially overlooking the multiple lines of evidence from various scientific fields, many of which support natural selection even though Darwin didn't and couldn't have known about them when he proposed his theory.

    Nye may think he will be debating creationism versus evolution. Ham could easily have different plans.
