Bill Nye's Warning To Parents of the Day

Favorite
- -

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.

Science v. The Bible of the Day

The great debate rages on -- sort of.

In an amusing twist, this video takes biblical creation and scientific theories on the origin of the universe, and totally swaps them around.

The result? It's a chocolate-and-peanut butter scenario that is absolutely delicious.
