Remember “Bill Nye the Science Guy”?

Bill Nye starred in a series of science videos that have been used to make science fun in homes and classrooms for years. I always had my suspicions about his worldview, but now I know for sure where he’s coming from. Take a look at this video…

 

(Of course, I just helped Mr. Nye get even more hits on his already-viral video. Oh well.)

My main purpose in sharing this with you is to help you see what’s being said about Creationism by a very prominent and influential person. (Bill Nye was honored as “Humanist of the Year in 2010.” Surprised?)

There are a couple of statements Mr. Nye made in this video which we need to hear very clearly:

“When you have a portion of the population that doesn’t believe in [evolution], it holds everybody back.”

    If you want to see what the humanist view of the future looks like, I suggest you read the book, “The Giver” by Lois Lowry. Sometimes we just don’t see what the logical consequences of our ideas will be, but Lowry allows us to do that. When Bill Nye says “I say to grownups, if you want to deny evolution… that’s fine, but don’t make your kids do it, because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future… we need engineers that can build stuff [and] solve problems,” he has a very clear picture in his mind of the type of future he wants to see built. That is the future Lowry shows us in her book.
