The people are waiting for more than a Bible sermon; there's a raffle tonight. Twenty-five guns are up for grabs.<p>There's nothing new about gun raffles in Kentucky, even at a church. Last year, there were 50 events like this one in the state. The Kentucky Baptist Convention says it's a surefire way to get new people through church doors.<p>Sunday school teacher David Keele says everyone he knows has a gun.

Evolution Debate? http://wkyufm.org/post/who-won-creation-vs-evolution-debate Days after a wide-ranging debate on creationism and evolution between Bill Nye and Ken Ham, the event is driving an online conversation. Themes of belief and literalism, logic and faith — and, for some, relevance — are being aired and disputed. And some wonder what the debate accomplished.<p>The video of the more than two-hour debate, in which Nye and Ham presented their views on how the Earth and its surroundings were created, has been viewed more than 830,000 times on YouTube. At one point, the live event drew more than 500,000 viewers.<p>And the interest has persisted. Thu, 06 Feb 2014 21:26:00 +0000 Bill Chappell 43461 at http://wkyufm.org Who 'Won' The Creation Vs.
