Bill Nye to Creationists: Save Your Children!

by at . Comments

Bill Nye, known as The Science Guy for his former show on PBS, has stepped headstrong in a national debate.

Addressing those who deny the evidence behind evolution - what Nye refers to as the "fundamental idea in all of life science" - the mechanical engineering expert says he can maybe give a pass to adults who hold the "inconsistent" and "untenable" view of Creationism.

But he makes a plea in the following video to those same adults: please think of your children. We need "scientifically literate voters and tax payers" in this county....

"I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world - in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe - that’s fine," Nye says. "But don’t make your kids do it because we need them...

"In another couple of centuries [Creationism] I’m sure... it just won’t exist. There’s no evidence for it.”

Where do you stand on this issue? Do you believe in evolution?

Please burn the bible a book written by man with all the errors that involves. The science is irrefutable evolution took place and the big bang happened the earth is 5 billion years old and the universe 14.7 billion years old and just like creationists can't comprehend those time periods they can't and won't comprehend evolution. If u are going to be egomaniacal enough to believe this was all created for us than you are as narcissistic as I think u are.

That Peter Pan comment was awesome, and so true!! I don't get why people get so upset when people believe in creationism. It never bothers me. That's the beauty of science: it doesn't matter if people believe it or not, it just is.

just because you've been "studying the bible deeply" does not prove anything - I've studied Peter Pan by J.M Barrie in one of my classes, but that doesn't mean that Peter Pan exists and that the book is proof of it. So to conclude, "don't go knocking down the truth" when you have no idea what you're talking about. Before you even start trying to refute evolution and science, PLEASE do your research and get your arguments straight, or else you'll end up sounding uneducated and you'll look like a fool to those you are arguing against.

The whole idea of evolution is stupid we did not come from apes!! I used to love watching Bill Nye as a kid. It's Called read the bible, There is evidence just because you can't see God doesn't mean he's not all around us, you cant see air nor oxygen, but we need it to breathe, Adam and Eve were the first people on earth God made all living things, I have been studying the bible deeply and there is evidence all around us that proves he exist, Jesus walked the earth many years ago their is proof of his existence, so dont go knocking down the truth

I guess people can deny carbon dating, fossil records, astronomical evidence of all kinds, because they are IDIOTS!!!!!! Knowledge is power creationists are powerless

@Zanna: Hahaha, nice one with using the layman's definition of 'theory' instead of the scientific definition. Oh wait, you're serious. Let me laugh even harder. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

I'd like to point out the obvious bias of this website in it's 'poll'. The two options given are: Of Course! which insinuates that you would be stupid to dis-agree and: No, science is stupid, which implies that if you do not believe in evolution than you don't believe in science. I'd like to answer: No, I don't believe science supports the Theory of evolution. Science is the study of observable facts and evolution is still called a theory because, no matter how hard you try, you can't prove that it's fact.

wasn't he in the movie Men in Black II ? or was it his maternal twin? I've been led to believe creationism and evolution are connected in some way, even if just a bump.
