Bill Nye, the knower of all things, is out with a new video in which he encourages creationist parents to embrace their "crazy, untenable, inconsistent" world view -- just so long as they don't force it on their offspring:
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, but don't make your kids do it because we need them.
We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can... we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems.
Beleaguered CNN didn't do itself any favors recently when host Carol Costello "welcomed" Bill Nye the Science Guy to a segment about fire and climate change:
If you Google your name, 'Bill Nye,' you're the kooky guy who doesn't know what he's talking about... You want to defend yourself?
His response is gold.
