The only time I have ever not loved Bill Nye was when he was on Dancing With The Stars messing with the momentum and stumbling around the ballroom like Lurch on painkillers. Other than that minor faux pas, Bill Nye is untouchable. As such, I was excited about his debate with Ken Ham, but I shouldn’t have been.

That whole middle part of the country from Texas to Dakota, The Mississippi to the Rockies, is known as Tornado Alley because they have the perfect conditions for and the highest percentage of tornadoes anywhere in the country. But let’s take a look at Dixie Alley.
