People here at work are all a buzz about the Nye/Ham debate, but I can't seem to force myself to ride that wave. It's difficult to shake the feeling that each side will be preaching to their respective choir, though I hope I'm wrong and many minds are changed/challenged.

It's true. A while back I used to really enjoy watching these sorts of debates, but you really have to wonder how many minds are actually being changed. I am glad that they're happening though (and that they're getting increasingly easy to watch/stream!), because at the very least, it may be a stepping stone to critical thinking in younger, more malleable minds.
